Thank you for clicking over to have a look at my blog
The English saying – There’s no place like home – is translated into Welsh as “Does unman yn debyg i gartref”. I wanted to make my youngest sister something with this saying on for her birthday and decided to do a little quilling on it.
But I started the project by turning to my ScanNCut. I had a play in the online Canvas software and tried various layouts of the words until I was happy.
I decided, rather than using a pen to write out the words, that I’d use the ScanNCut’s foiling feature and get the machine to write out everything using a glue pen. Some of the words I set to just write the outline and some with a solid fill.
I was working on an A4 size finished project.
I used gold foil to rub all over the glue lines as soon as it was out of my ScanNCut and dry.
Unfortunately, no matter how I turned my cardstock I simply can’t get a good photo showing the foiling all the way around my creation.
As soon as the foiling was done out came my quilling kit (similar to this one) and off I went filling in the letters I’d left with a blank centre with different colour and shaped quilling pieces. I tried to stick all pieces just inside the foiled lines.
You can see the dimension of the quilling in this photo.
It took me several days to fill in all 7 letters of Gartref but it looked OK I think.
I then needed to frame it. I chose a deep frame with a perspex front to keep the dust off the quilling. I tried to take this photo to show the depth from front to the quilled panel.
And this is my final creation.
That’s it for this post. Hope you liked it. I’ve got more crafting to do and more crafting to blog, so keep an I out to see what other creations I make.
