Random cards

Haven't been quilling a lot lately. Life is a little busy.
Still I managed to make two cards, one for my mum, and the other for my husband.

Here's the card I made for my mum. She's a lotus flower lover.

And here's the Valentine's card I made for my husband. The wrapped heart is inspired by Licia Politis. I learnt how to make the heart from Ann Martin's blog HERE.

Nov - Dec Recap

November and December had been very happening for me. Besides the painstaking thesis writing process and making a few customers' orders in between, I conducted 2 quilling classes, 1 workshop and initiated our first ever quillers-get-together in town.

Here are some photos...
From our kids' school holiday classes - working with corrugated/board strips.

 And adult beginner class

 Quilling workshop for children at a local learning centre.

 And our first ever quillers meet up.

 Cards we made for exchange
 And food of course!
I made Christmas wreaths last 2 years but this year I only managed to make a simple quick wreath. (I wrote the tutorial HERE).  
And with these three cute monsters created by my 5-7 year-old students, I wish everyone a merry and blessed Christmas! Happy holiday!

Happy Halloween

I don't celebrate Halloween but I thought it would be fun to make something in black, orange or purple. So here's something simple that I came up with. Happy Halloween!

Another attempt of Quillography

A signage for a car accessories shop. Made upon customer's request. I was given the freedom to design. So I chose black and red as background colours because they are the colours that first came into my mind when I think about cars. I wanted something classy, so I chose to quill using gold gilded soft ivory strips. Although it's not a very big piece, it's tedious as I used normal standard weight quilling strips for the quilling. I sketched the design and had to make adaptations while quilling. I myself love this piece very much as it's clean and simple. I hope you do enjoy it too.

Sept 2013

Time flies and it's now September. Been working hard with my thesis. And I have just another chapter to go so hopefully I can get it done by the end of this month. And it's exciting too as my little shop turns 2 this month!

If you are residing in Malaysia, or has a Malaysian postal address, please join my little shop's 2nd anniversary card-making contest. The details are here
Some of the things I did recently.

I attended a workshop on traditional Chinese paper cutting - learning from a local expert. He has been involved in paper cutting since young age and he is now almost 70 or more (my guess). You can feel the passion about paper cutting from the way he talked and explained. Here's my lesson 1 outcome.

Double happiness

And I also manage to conduct another beginner class last week. Read up more about it here

Quilled Motorbike - A Harley Davidson

I really like Paula's amazing work on Harley NU 3 - I even had the urge to give it a try when I first saw it but the thought ended up as thoughts only (as usual). It is only until I received an order from a customer who wanted a birthday card for a guy who is crazy about motorbikes that I finally get my hands at it. I figured probably I'd give it a try on Harley since it's like 'Gucci' or 'Prada' in motorbike world (I believe). So I researched a bit on the internet as I've never seen a real Harley and came out with this simplified version

it's actually an easel card

And here's another piece that I worked on - a framed piece for a local book author, based on his latest book cover.

Till then, have a great week ahead!

Random stuffs I did. Hmm, am I feeling purple and yellow?

this one is merely to experiment on square structure

back to basic

practice on dimensional quilling

this one is a customer order, for a young lady who dances and sings - inspired by Abba's song 'You are the dancing queen'
