I learned to quill in October 2001, and still love it...maybe even more now... There is no limit to what one can create with quilling! It goes so well with many other techniques too... I have won several awards for my quilling and cards. I sell my quilling at arts and craft sales, & by word of mouth. I also do some custom/personalized orders. I do quilling demos, and teach both beginner and advanced techniques classes.
In 2013, I became accredited with the North American Quilling Guild.
After a much needed break from posting online, I am giving it a go again. I just got caught up in life, and needed some time away. I spent last fall getting ready for a few Christmas sales, which went fairly well, but as I say , they can always be better too! I sold lots of quilled ornaments, and bookmarks, a long with friendship bags, but not too many cards. This was a shock, as I sell quite a few privately, so thought I would sell lots at my sales... Oh well, on the bright side, I have a nice stock made :).
Someone Special card: For the flower, I used peach colored strips wrapped around a dowel, and then shaped like a grape roll to give added dimension with a pearl to finish it off in the center.The leaves and scrolls are light green, and then I added little quilled pegs in the corners.This is a simple faster design that can be used for many different occasions.
For the birthday card I used light yellow and aqua colored strips.The fringed center is both colors, made from 1/8” strips rolled together.The leaves are a moss green color, both quilled and alternate side looped.
