Alright, this is going to be a little lengthy post as I have 3 things to share.
I have always wanted to try quill a camera like what Sandy of The Sweet Spot does (you can check out her range of colourful cameras on her blog or her etsy shop). And so I finally did. I quilled a simple card, with a black camera on it for my brother's birthday. He's a photographer, and the quilled version is based on his real Nikon, though simplified.
My cousin wanted to handmade a special gift for his friend's house-warming party, so he came to me (yes, a 'he') asking if I could help him quill something. So we discussed and I came up with this idea to set the scene as seen in the cartoon 'up'. He suggested some typography quilling to incorporate the name of the couple. And so after about an afternoon and a night, we came up with this (we haven't added the strings that hold the balloons)
I have been invited by Sarawak Biodiversity Centre to their Biodiversity Day this weekend. I'll have a booth selling my quilling supplies (+ some handmade cards), display some of my work, and most importantly to teach public quilling using re-purposed magazine strips. The staffs of the center had created an amazing big quilled tree as centerpiece of our booth using shredded catalog book paper strips. I'll get to see it in person this weekend. Don't worry, I'll snap a few shots and show you guys then. Meanwhile, here's some of the 'recycling or re-purposing' projects that we'll work on.
