The Troy Art Center - The Shop selling some of my items for the holidays.

The Shop at the Troy Art Center is having their annual holiday shop open up.  These are some of the items I dropped off  to be sold there.  I have about 13 items total. I have been busy with a move that happened at the end of August, teaching craft classes and creating items for the craft shows in the area. I have a limited supply but I am making new items.

I got hooked on making paper beads from newspaper circulars and magazines and made paper bead stars. I have seven stars that I made and left The Shop to sell for me.  The prices on the stars range from $8 to $10.

I made four newspaper circular ads vases. One of them is going to be sold at The Shop.
The price is $18.

I made several miniture paper beads ornaments from newspapers and magazines, covered them with nail polish then quilling paper, added the pearl dots and hodge podge and glitter glue to seal them. Prices range from $7 to $10 for the ornaments.

Coming soon maybe a picture of the quilled black pendant and earrings cost is $18.

The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.

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.
