I had taken a picture of my mother's water garden last summer, so this year for mother's day I used that photo for inspiration when I needed to make her something.  The lily is quilled out of 3mm wide paper strips and the background is watercolor.  I have the quilling thing down pretty well, but I have never really learned how to paint.  I just grabbed my daughters crayola watercolor set and guessed.  I was happy with how it came out...so was she.  The first photo is it out of the frame b/c the glass was giving me a lot of grief.


this photo the glass shows a reflection of the actual pond.  The lilies aren't out this year yet:

this is the photo I used:


I would love to hear what you think!!

I love the 3d effect you achieved with the quilling! I think you did a great job with the crayolas of creating a water and lily background.
