That is so pretty! So simple and complicated at the same time. Just like the meaning of the words. Awesome job!

Both pieces are absolutely stunning and I'd be proud to receive either as a wedding gift.

Did I understand correctly that you spray-painted it white after finishing the quilling to cover up the excess glue?

Now we're in Gumby; I'm gonna walk through a book.

I did end up spray-painting it with several light coats.  The spray glue dried with a kind of rubber-cementy yellowness - but I think I just chose poorly in the spray glue department.  The one I bought was permanent - I'm going to experiment in the future with using repositional spray and then using a matte shellac or something to ensure permanence.... Hopefully that'll work!  I was just on a tight time frame (due to procrastination). Smiley

I love this...

We used to do this craft in primary school and I bloody hated it.
(Mainly because we were only allowed to create flowers).
But seeing it like this, in such a new light, I'm even tempted to give quilling another chance !!

It's a beautiful piece, as is that of your Husband !!

This is absolutely stunning!  I just looked at Yulia Brodskaya's work and am in awe.  I can't wait to try quilling!

Beautiful.  A wonderful gift.  (My little brother got married 10/10/10, too.)

I'm with Tabikat89--I don't much care for what I see in quilling. They're cool, and I know they require a lot of skill, but yours is the ONLY piece I've ever seen that I would hang on my wall.

And now I know who yulia brodskaya is, and now I know there's a whole new world out there for me to explore.

Your husband's screen print is awesome, too!!!

My grandma taught me to quill when I was little, and gave me a bunch of her supplies, since then I have lost all of the supplies, and totally forgotten about quilling.  Your piece is awesome.  It amkes me want to go out and buy quilling supplies and start doing it again.

I've never heard of "quilling" before, but your piece is simply beautiful.  It looks like it was a work of love. 
Your husband's piece is incredibly unique - and memorable.  Your brother and his new wife are very lucky to have such talented sibs.  Grin
