The Art of Paper Filigree

This blog is to celebrate the things I enjoy making. This includes quilling art, crafts, and cooking recipes and ideas, as well as some musings. I enjoy sharing ideas. By all means, if you want to borrow an art idea, go for it. But please, make it your own; don't just copy. If you've never heard of quilling art, I hope this introduces it as an art form and possible hobby. And I hope the pages to the right of the quilling blog posts offer up information, ideas and inspiration.

Enjoy your visit! If you have questions or comments, by all means share.

Pheasant Under Grass

Hehe... sorry... couldn't resist.

This is the first of what I envision as a series of birds in the wild. This piece is a mixed media effort. I used milk weed seeds for the bird's tummy, added actual pheasant feathers to the wings and to make the tail, and used wood chips, birch bark, twigs, and real dried grasses in the piece, to supplement the quilling paper.

I like it, and I'm looking forward to doing more. First though, I think I'll dabble in a little cave art. :)
