This customer asked for a “manly” G. She said that the recipient liked the outdoors, hunting, fishing, etc, and that he liked blue. To be honest, I have done so many basic blue monograms, I was up for a challenge. So, I suggested camouflage. I had never attempted making quills look like camo before, but was willing to try. I wanted to make her something really unique and have something new in my portfolio as well. The result was this unique camoflauge letter g monogram!

Construction:

This letter G monogram was made with 1/4″ quilling paper with a black outline on a white background. I used a military-style font with the split to make it look more masculine. I actually ended up making this monogram twice! Because most of my quilling designs are more open, or less dense, I hadn’t anticipated what pressing all these quills into paper would do to the shape of it! Ugh! By the time I’d gotten about 3/4 of the way done, I realized that the paper background had distorted to the point that no matter what I did to try to flatten it out, it just wouldn’t work. So, I ordered more paper (I’d run out of the sage green) and started again with new knowledge and technique. The second time around I made sure that instead of gluing the quills to the background, I glued the quills to each other. That way, there was little to no contact between the glue and the background, ensuring a flat background with no warping. That is probably the worst part of quilling for me, distortion. I haven’t found a glue yet that doesn’t create valleys in the paper and am reluctant to buy watercolor paper to combat this because of the cost. Oh well. I learned something new anyways and I think in the end, this camo G really came out nice!
