[Focus on Life Week 11] The Possibilities are Endless

It's week 11 in Ms. Sally Russick's Focus on Life:  The Possibilities are Endless.
When it comes to paper quilling - the art of twirling paper - the possibilities are endless! 
Paper Quilling
 I love how colorful these papers are.  You don't need a lot of tools for this craft: - just a needle tool and glue.  You can used a needle tool or a slotted tool or even a barbecue stick.  I make the basic shapes while watching tv or when I feel like I need to relax... oh yeah, it soothes me.  
Paper Quilled Flowers
It'll be officially Spring in a few days so here's a bunch of flowers for you!
Have a good one, my friend!
Blessings!

I love the pictures, you can see how something so simple can become so beautiful. I think taking it to the couch is a great strategy for thaking hte edge off.

I love both your photos here. Really nicely done.
I was struck by you saying you find it soothing. It's funny- when I've looked at quilling before I've thought, "that's beautiful, and I'd kill myself if I actually created enough components to make a picture." Isn't it amazing how different we all are? I would get so tense if I sat and twirled paper! But you made something beautiful with it.

Your flowers are sweet, but the photo I like the best is the rainbow colored papers waiting to be rolled! Delicious.

Oh my goodness!!! those are such pretty colors! I want to do quilling, but there never seems to be enough time to learn or to just sit and do it right now....Great job!

Katherine at Terra Beadworks said...

The first picture is amazing! I have seen them in craft stores and been attracted to the lovely colors. Your finished flowers are very cheerful.

I too love that first photo! Imagining the possibilities.... Reminded me of when I did quilling for a couple of wedding announcement gifts.

Annette said...

Yes, those long strips of paper hold endless possibilities. I have tried quilling and am terrible at it! Your flowers are so bright and cheerful and make me think I should try it again!

I love this colorful photo! And the possibilities are indeed endless here with colors and shapes. I used to do quilling when I was in my teens and loved it! There's something about rolling that thin paper into something beautiful.
