Quilling

-oOo-

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.

It’s time for another inspiration post from me on the “Dragons Lair Designs Inspiration Blog“. This is more or less what I posted over on that blog –

.

I decided to go for a home decor item this time.

And this is what I came up with:

Buterfly 05

.

These are what I used:

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:

Items from the “Butterfly Garden” collection available – here – in the store.

Consumables:

  • Hunkydory Foiled Frame; 250gsm Super Smooth white paper;  Assorted Nuvo Embelishment Mousse; Tonic Funky Glue Pen; Pinflair Glue Gel;

Equipment:

  • Scissors;

Method:

I took items from the collection into the My Craft Studio software and re-sized and copied as I wanted.  I also added wording to the “plant label” element.

Buterfly 04Pili-pala, Iâr fach yr haf, and Gloyn byw, are all Welsh names for Butterflies.

I printed everything out and cut out the label, butterflies, background, etc.

I then tore pieces from two of the plainer backgrounds and made spirals before folding and twirling into torn paper roses.  Some of the same background was torn into a panel and I went over the edge with the Tonic moose before sticking it to the background panel.  I used two different colours of the Tonic mousse on the torn edges of the roses, and the another colour on the foiled frame.

Buterfly 08

Putting the matted background panel inside the back of the pre-scored frame I folded up the box frame and stuck the foiled frame on top.

I then used glue gel to stick the flowers and butterflies within the frame and the label and one small butterfly on the edge of the frame.

Buterfly 06I hope you like what I came up with.
