Earth! Fire! Water! ( and I can't decide to make either air or wind.. please help with that cause I totally don't know..) I decided to do an element series with quilling and I have tried a bunch of new techniques with them as well.  I call it my  "random scrunchees" technique it's great to make an interesting fill with paper that doesn't have that patterned feel that most filling with quilling does..

Here's earth.. I used reference images from soil sediment to get my idea! Oh the good times...

I also wanted to do a little fossil in the sediment, hence the wee fish.

I love quilling water it is just too much fun!

I think doing the fire one was the most fun to draw up and sketch. I also really perfected the "random scrunchees" fill on this one. 

I hope you guys like it. These were a blast to create.
Oh and if you could let me know if should do wind or air.. what's the proper four elements...?

Also if you want to see more stuff on these elementals check out my wee blog..

I follow your blog so I've seen these already but I just had to say, these are A-MAZ-ING!!! And the scrunchy fill technique really works!

And just my two cents: Air I think would complete the element set best. Wind is air, but air isn't always wind.

These are stunning!! You have some serious quilling skills. It's so neat to see this technique being used in a modern and cool way.

Isn't it wind? Maybe I'm just thinking of the band, Earth, Wind and Fire Smiley.

Those are absolutely fantastic, mezcraft! You've really come a long way since that first quilling monogram in the pinterest swap months ago. Amazing! I vote for wind, for the same reason as limeriot. And also, more letters means more space for your beautiful quilling. Wink

Beautiful.  I love your random scrunch effect. Love the flames on Fire, like sparks running through the stubble.  Your Earth is so rich and I love the fossil fish. And you have really captured the flow of Water.  Looking forward to seeing what you do with Air/Wind.
(And of course there is always the fifth element or Quintessence, which the Greeks called Aether - the pure air for the gods to breathe, although I think to us it would just be the vacuum of space  Smiley)

I don't know which I'd do, wind or air, but I can't wait to see what you come up with.
