I am very excited about my new present from me to me :-) I'm gonna receive in the post, hopefully in the next 2 week, this calendar gem. I've been looking all over the internet for it. It's really hard to find as is not printed any more (to expensive and not enough buyers I guess).
The whole idea is that this calendar has on every page corresponding to every day of the year a small quilled design and the the necesary paper strip to make it. I think it's an awesome idea.
I spent all day yesterday to find the 2008 calendar (as it's the last one in it series) but the only one I could get my hands on was an used 2007 instead. That's good enough for me as they are very expensive and I managed to find a cheap one in France.
Now I can't wait to receive it and get started. I will join Andy in his Mailart 365 project and send my little projects all over the world.
I discovered paper filigree less than a year ago when I accidentally saw a quilling book on Amazon. From that moment I fell in love with paper quilling.
Andy had a mailart lesson the other day and I wanted to be in the show. I had only 10 minutes in the morning before he will leave the house so I grabbed a postcard and some few already quilled coils and start pimping. Is not the best piece ever but this is one of the first I made and the bear looks cute, so I like it.
The quilling represents a abstract flower bouquet.
I studied statistics and IT but I discovered my love for art in 2010 Since then I learnt to do quilling and cross stitch. In august 2013 I gave up my day job in London and moved to Vietnam to pursue my passion for art.
