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.
