This month's PCAGOE challenge is Quilling. I had never done any of it so this was a challenge for sure. Once I got started, I didn't want to stop. I love it, I love the results you can get and you can be sure that quilling will be in other pieces I make. My favorite of the 3 that I made before time ran out is this one. It was inspired a ceramic artist named Anastasaki https://www.facebook.com/anastasaki.gr/. I love the work. The one that caught my eye was a portrait of a 20's couple. The way bold lines are used to define the features just seemed to be made for the quilling I had in mind.
I used my husband and I as the subject matter, adding the purple hair for me. I had purple hair last summer and I miss it terribly so I figured I could at least immortalize it in a piece. It is built on a wooden canvas. I am sure it will be the conversation starter for some time to come.
Have you ever taken something up, that you never thought of before, and just made it work, right away? Like it was waiting for you all this time. I'd love to hear about it.
