Lights and shadows

I used as support for this work an CD on wich I applied quilling items. When I finished and I wanted to take pictures for this post... started the show. The reflection of light and camera flash on the CD gave me some beautiful shots that I wanted to share with you .Just take a look...

The last one is without cd support.
 Here are a lot of shots, but it was a bit difficult to choose because I like all.

White swan - tutorial

 It was funny to create this swan. First I drew a swan , then I used flower petals( wich were cuted with large and small  petals die cut) to create the impresion of feathers.

 Then I glued the petals following outline drawing

Finally I got up / folded a little the feather to create 3D effect, wich ,unfortunately, did not quite see in the picture only in reality
