Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.

Created by me August 2016 



I made about 13 reindeer newspaper woven ornaments. I decided to add antlers this time. The paper I used to create them came from the shipping boxes that gets delivered to work. I followed a video on you tube to learn to create the reindeer. The video is in another language but I silence the video and watch it and created a few deer until I remembered how to do it without the video. The video calls them goats but I turned mine into deer. I used nail polish for the nose and the eyes I used black ciate jewel pedicure for the eyes of the reindeer. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/lPrQCkRGQxY

My Creations: Folded Book Page Vase and Angels

My recent creations of folded book page angels. Took several hours (like over 5) to create them. I saw a tutorial online on you tube. Here is the you tube video I followed https://youtu.be/aOBX4wM05cM.  I followed the video then added my own touch to the angels. Made with quilling paper for hair, manila file folder paper strips make the neck and face, lace for neck and bottom of dress. Each angel will cost $48 to the lucky person who buys her. The angels will be at the local craft shows with me if you want to see them up close until they are sold. Created June 2016






The folded book page vase is what I made my mother for mothers day. I created the three center roses on the top, the mini roses around those roses came from the craft store. I used a paper back book that you can fit in your jacket pocket. The vase layout of the folding pages I followed a you tube video. Simple to follow. My mother loved it. April 2016
