Quilled Cosmic Rainbow

This quilled cosmic rainbow was another fun, colorful project for me. Every time I work on one of the rainbow pieces, I fall in love. There is something about the brightness of the colors, the way they blend, the eye-catching completed project that makes me want to do more and more.

This one was a little different as I used a black, cut-out background and made eccentric loose coils to fill in the blank spaces. I just matted and framed it and it is just stunning all put together. I found a new frame for the square mandalas that is both nicely made and very thin and will be purchasing more to keep on hand.

This particular mandala is just under 8×8 (I left roughly 1/4 inch on all sides for white space). I used a black mat with white core and put it in a 12×12 black, low-profile frame. It’s usually pretty hard to find thin frames to fit quillings, but this was just perfect. If I could take a decent picture of it all together, I would, but for some reason when I try to do that kind of shot, they always look terrible.

Construction

There is really nothing special about the construction of this quilled cosmis rainbow mandala. I just made various-sized coils and glued them so that the eye was pulled to one side. I think they call them eccentric loose coils, but am not entirely certain. I thought it gave it a more “cosmic” look than just letting the eyes glue down where they landed upon releasing the quill.
