Quill This

Quilling – the fine art of paper rolling – has been around for centuries but it’s never really been a craft for the cool kids. Until recently that is, and now modern artists around the world are pioneering something of a quilling revival, creating some truly astounding works of art that are leaving traditional quilled cards and invitations behind in their dust.

The wedding book

My sister got married last year and I thought rather than buy her something generic that anyone could give her if they happened to go into the same shop as me, I’d make her a photo album/scrapbook keepsake.

Enter here all ye who dare and who want to see how my scrapbooking has come on since Four Years in One Book. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to an A3 scanner so until I do, this is the best I can get the snaps of my latest effort – which happens to be slightly on the large side – to look. It’s much more coherent than other books I’ve created but is definitely a work in progress. Watch this space!
