Flying Fish…

This is my 1st craft mobile(quilled or otherwise)

For this project, I experimented with two contrasting colours - fluorescent green and dark orange.

 I crimped the orange strip and pasted it over the fluorescent one and then started to quill. 

The small fish is made of 2 tight coils (mouth and triangular body), the fins are quilled tears and the tail is made of 4 swirls(half loose coils) pasted on both side of the fish's body.

The big fish is made of 2 loose coils, the fins with rounded triangles and tail with 4 swirls of different lengths pasted on upper side of the body.

The 3rd piece isn't a fish(obviously you can see that), but i wanted to balance out my craft mobile(and I had run out of paper to quill another fish), hence I quilled a marquise(eye).
{the way I look at it is - its dad, mom and their egg.. ;-) }

Once all the 3 pieces were ready, I coated them with silver glitter.

Finally I made a loop in the golden ribbon and pasted the 3 pieces on it. AND we are DONE..
