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

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. 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.

Children age 12 and older, teens and adults are welcome to attend. If your a beginner or at a higher level I can provide teaching and have the time to work on projects that are simple or that can challenge you.

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.
