Quilling and Creativity

I started with a simple book called Quilling for Dummies, this gives you some very basic directions and some simple shapes that you can make in no time, by putting the pieces or shapes together you then create some very attractive pieces.

I recently started the unique craft of Quilling.  I started with a simple book called Quilling for Dummies, this gives you some very basic directions and some simple shapes that you can make in no time, by putting the pieces or shapes together you then create some very attractive pieces.  By pieces I mean the finished product of a flower, sometimes with a stem and leaves attached or sea shells; some pretty basic shapes like a heart.  These can then be turned into many elaborate works of art, I have merely added them to home made greeting cards and gift tags.  

As I received new instruction books and played with the craft on my own I have since realized that this is an art that can be taken to great extremes and the beauty of the work and often the realism is astounding.  Of course I have learned that the more detail you get into the better and more real your work will appear.  This of course takes time and practice but I must say the efforts are well worth the results.

Simply sitting with the paper strips and tool, your imagination can take you places you would not even believe!  Whatever comes to mind, make it!  Work with different shapes and sizes as well the tightness of the roll and create a master piece that is not in a pattern book.  As I have shared this unique craft with friends I have seen them make some amazing pieces just because they thought they could.

It would not be a surprise find that you have sat for hours enjoying simple experimentation with the various levels of work that can be accomplished as well as experimenting with the blending of different shades of extreme-wedding.blogspot.com/2009/12/stunning-quilling.htmlpaper strips.  If you wanted to create a meadow scene with a variety of blended flowers it is possible.  Imagine the many shades of colors you would find in the coat hairs of your dog,  this how detailed you can choose to become in creating with this paper art.

I hope that those who read this article will find an interest in at least experiencing the beauty created by this craft if not trying your hand at some of the more simple creations.  I have had hours of fun sharing and experimenting and certainly hope that you will too.
