The fountain was quilled. I have a large loose circle on the bottom layer. I smaller hollow circle on the top layer and then I cut a small blue circle and laid inside the fountain so when I filled it with Crystal Lacquer it looked like water. The center of the fountain is tiny tight rolls of paper and the top is a half unrolled quilled circle.
I formed the clock tower in 6 steps.
- Step one cut the rectangle and then glue like strips of paper on the diagonal to give the section some texture. I cut a small black oval shape for the door and small rectangles for the windows. For the arch I glued 4 sheets of like paper together. One on top of the other. Then I used some of the same strips of paper to give the arch some texture.
- Cut rectangle. Half of this rectangle will be hidden behind #1 and #2. Cut 8 windows from black cardstock, let dry and attach.
- In this step I used 3 strips just to give some detail to this large layer. I also cut out small squares at the top of the triangle. I also cut some small squares and added some detail on the tower. This section has 4 small windows.
- I used the same method on section 4 as I did in section one. I added some square stonework at the top of the section for detail.
- Section 5 has a small oval window and some stone squares to top off the section. I put section 5 behind section 4 hiding some of the window....so make the window longer than you need.
- Just a s square with some top detailing. 2 square points sticking out from the top to finish it off.
The red flags in the window are Small Quilled S scrolls. The red arrows on the pattern indicate sections that are moved back behind the section below. I also designed stairs. I glued several sheets of paper together and then tucked them between a folded sheet of cardstock. This made smooth edges, and a stable foundation for the tower. I finished the tower with a coat of Crystal lacquer to preserve the project. I glued the section with Elmer's glue and strips of cards stock in the back to provide stability.
Just for a laugh here is one of my failed attempts
