I do love everything old... old people, old houses, old books, old music...
It's the heritage ... the history behind everything old ... there is always a story to tell or imagine.
When I read an old book I imagine the writer in his or her time and with this another story emerges :)
My love and admiration for antique quilling is very profound and I have always wanted to create something inspired by it, but never quite found the right canvas...
Manú, a mouse in Dior
Here is my little mouse illustration that I have created in 1,5 mm strips of paper.
It has 117 teeny tiny little flowers, all created by hand from paper.
This piece has been inspired by the amazing miniature work of Dior.
You can watch the video that inspired this little beauty here.
To see more on how I created my little Manú just read my blog.
Rusty the Sionnach
This is my first patchwork on paper :)
In this piece I was inspired by the lovely colours of Autumn, when the beautiful trees turn their leaves into rust and gold. It is a very magical time of the year.
Sionnach has been created with 3mm strips of paper using the beehive technique for the tree and the beautiful patchwork of lovely paper patterns for the fox.
I have created this piece by using 3 to 5 mm strips of paper. I loved playing with all those splashes of colour which makes it all look so striking. You can again recognize my favourite technique, the beehive.
Saray, the Queen Fly
This was a journey into zentangle and colourful patters.
I created this piece by using 3mm wide strips of paper that I have cut, rolled and glued together to create this intricate design.
