Kittens with Quilled flowers

There's a craze going on with a new flower called Beehive, the creator is Susan Quillings card, thought I'd make a go of it, mine are a little different and the petal shapes are thinner, but I think they work, here they are
Instead of my usual quilled pictures, this time I came across a picture of the cutest kittens and wanted to use it, and desided on the flowers to go with it, I also used striped scrapbooking paper to go around the kittens, I think it turned out pretty good, what do you think?

Quilled Fairy with owl

Hi everyone, and glad you stopped by!
today I want to show you 2 pictures, first one was shown on a quilling group on face book, and Anni and others including me thought it would be a challenge to quill it!. Cant wait to see theres, I'm sure they will come out awsome!
Heres the picture.
now heres the quilled on, I did a different back ground, using white berch tree's, since the branch is white and brown. It didnt turn out as good as I hoped, but thats ok.

quilled Flag

I'm sure I have posted this long ago, but since it being Vetrans Day, I thought I'd post it again. It's away to display pictures of those in my family that have served for our country, and I'm proud to have it hanging on our wall !!!
The quilling is around the pictures , so they are inlayed.
God bless all those who have served and still are today!!

Quilled wood containers

Spotted these plain wood containers and thought these would be great for gifts!
I painted them and quilled different flowers and leaves on them, some of the flowers have 2 shades of colors rolled together, it makes a nice effect, you may not see them to good, but I'm hooked on them. I decided to add a notebook and a pen that is wrapped in floral tape that holds a flower at the top. What a useful and decorate idea, also selling these for $6.00 what a buy!
Dont forget to click on picture, you may see where I used the 2 colors together. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Quilled crosses

I thought I'd try something that took less time and very simple. I came across these wooded crosses that I thought were very nice, and thought it would be neat to decorate them with quilling, so I had my hubby spray them with wood stain, then I quilled some flowers, leaves and scroll, then added long pearls, hope you like!!!!

Quilled Owl

It's been awhile since last post,have been busy with Family reunions, Farmers Markets, and First time Art Fair. The Art Fair turned out great, loved it, so many people from miles around showed up and so many were pleased with my work, and could remember the Art from way back, but noticed mine being more detailed. It made me feel really good inside, although I still have a ways to go in improving my work, as I take as a challenge, and I love challenges!. Well dont want to bore you so here is the Owl, hope you like it!!!! You can click on the picture for closer look.

I used Markers to do some shading in the leaves, and feathers around the eyes.

Busy, Busy, Busy!!!

Sorry I havent posted in awhile, but been very busy with orders the last 2 weeks. Today had a little time before Farmers Market to post, so I thought I'd share with you on some of the things I have made by requests, and other to keep up on stock as I've been selling them so fast lately!.
                      Here is a picture that was requested, she wanted a beach scene with poem of foot prints in the sand, and wanted me to use real sand and shells, I included quilling of a butterfly and flowers, she loved it!!!
                                   13x13 frames run between $25.00- $40.00 very reasonable

                               I also printed the poem on velum, and added footprints in the sand.

Here are 2 pictures done for 2 Daughters, the poems are printed on vellum, and colored card stock behind it. Then I added flowers and butterflies, only thing about glueing on the vellum is it tends to bubble alittle, havent found away around that, but it still turnes out pretty good. These were done in a 8x10 frame, which I charge $12.oo-$15.00, which I think is very affordable.I had suggestion from a customer, that I should put price range on my blog, since I do hand out cards with blog, that way if there interested, they would know  around what it will cost them.




Here are some more quilled wooden boxes, they have been a big seller here.I came across some shaped like purses, there really cute!. It depends on what they have at the time and when I can get them as to what I quill on and charge, its been running anywhere from $5.00 -$8.00, depending on the size of box and how much quilling and painting involved.



And last but least, another good seller is paper beaded necklaces, made out of Scrapbooking paper, love how the designs come out, it took me 4 days to make 20 of them, get finger cramps every time,lol


So there you have it, this is what I've been busy with, for the last 2 weeks, hopefully I'll have some time soon to do a picture or 2. Hope you enjoyed what I've shared with you today, thanks for checking my work out!Have a good day!!!

More Jewelry boxes

Been trying out new flower petals and colors, love adding pearl beads I think it adds a nice touch.These are wooden trinket or jewelry boxes that I painted most of them, theyv'e been a nice seller!.

These boxes are of cardboard that I got from my Daughter, she saves everything, she learned it from me,lol
I decided to decorate them with quilling, nice way to recycle!.
I quilled these boxes , and made 20 paper beaded necklaces with Scrapbooking paper and magazines in one week, there both good sellers here. But boy did I get finger cramps from making the beads,lol, I'm ready to do another framed picture, just dont know what it's going to be yet,lol
Well hope everyone is having a great day!!!!!!!!

I did get a call from a lady that runs an Art show in small town near us, she had seen my work here on my blog and loves my work and wanted to know if I'd be interested in show ing my work at the Art show, I was so excited and said yes. There wont be any judges as this is there first time, but say that next year there will be, and my art will be up for sale. It's so nice that it's reconized as Art and not craft, Sept. 4th is the day!.

Bambi and MOM

Well I think the quillers block has gone for now!. I had a great weekend, I sold some pictures and quilled gift boxes, gift tags, book marks, and paper bead necklaces.THere was a lady that I told and showed that there was an artical and picure of my quilling  in Quill America magazine, and that I won a ribbon on one of my pieces. She was so excited and asked me to sign my name to the pictures she bought, I was shocked and gladly signed them. She said she had heard of quilling but never knew what it really was, so I explained a little, next thing she asked if I'd sell her the quilling tool that I had displayed with picture of shapes and explanation about quilling, I ended up giving it to her, then she asked me if I would send her some simple patterns, as she lives out of town, so I will do that and give her some quilling sights to check out along with on line quilling stores. It was all exciting for me to share something I love and enjoy, who knows we may keep intouch never know. Well anyway here is my recent project of Bambi and MOM, hope you like!!

Gift boxes

Thought I'd take a break from framed pictures, and quill on some little gift boxes, some are card board and some wood. I have sold a few and thought I'd better make some more. I also sold some gift tags, so I guess my next project will be making some more tags, then maybe get back to my frames. Here are the gift boxes.
