Isil ordered immediately papers and basic tools via the internet and taught herself to quill by doing practice projects like this one.
Soon drawing was no longer her favorite thing to do, but in time she missed it and so began combining sketches with quilled elements.
Isil says one thing she especially likes about quilling is that you can shape paper strips into whatever you imagine.
I'm especially impressed by her variation of the vortex coil created by Licia Politis several year ago. You can see the original vortex (that I have yet to master!) in Licia's Fruit Bowl pineapple. Isla's coil has a triangular center - so cool.
