101  Re: quilling in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 23, 2008 05:23:44 PM
This is an incredible piece of art. It is so smart and what a treasure to have.

Do you happen to have a closer photo of the overall piece? It would be nice to see it from the front.

Rockin'! Smiley

Here are two more pictures...the first one is before I put the 'sky' paper under the velum...

and the second one you can see the hidden heart I mention in the first post. (near Rick toward the bottom of the leaves).  I didn't have a closer pic of the overall piece, so I zoomed in. I hope these are what you wanted to see!This is my favorite I've done, I'm getting ready to do another for a friend, and then I will do one for myself one day!!!

102  Natalie quilled in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 17, 2008 06:38:25 AM
When a friend had a baby, I started this...the circles in the corner match the circles that are painted on her wall.  It was my first time with lettering, I've learned a few tricks since this, but I still like it.  This is my own design too!  My friends say they laugh every time they see it in Natalie's room, so mission accomplished.

103  I think I like to decorate cakes in Dessert by summertimerolls on: January 17, 2008 06:33:48 AM
So, I always like the finished product...and I love coming up with the ideas, but about half way through the decorating I'm cursing myself for ever starting!!!
I've made a few special cakes for people, these are the only ones I have pictures of though.  I use a box cake mix but I always make my own icing.  I add Almond extract instead of vanilla...and it is so yummy.

This one I found a picture of on the internet somewhere...it was so cute.

104  The rest of my quilling... in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 11, 2008 04:37:04 PM
I figure it is better to post it all in one big post...

I made this for my MIL...all of her  grandkids are represented...it is about 8x10"
the idea came from a posting on quilled creations, I can't take the credit for the idea.

I made this for my daughter's kindergarten teacher who was WONDERFUL!!!
The pencil is about 15 inches long and about 4 inches wide.  The lettering is definitely the hardest part.

And this is a silly card I made for my dad...who hates frogs...I can't take credit for the design, I found that and copied it too.

and...a matte I made for a friend's wedding picture.  Everything is made out of paper...roses...the pain in my butt.  Sorry this pic is a little blurry

105  Re: quilling flower magnets in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 11, 2008 04:14:12 PM
That's so cool -- the only quilling technique I know is rolling into a coil, and pinching into various shapes.  Can you describe how you made the flowers?  I'm guessing you cut circles and fringed the edges, but I'm not quite sure how you got that 3D look.
Great work!

Thanks for the nice words.  The type of flower I used was a fringed flower...there are a couple of ways to make them...you can actually purchase a fringing machine that will make the little cuts for you, but I just do them by hand.  I used a graduated paper (one end was light pink and it gradually turned to dark pink) and the paper is 1/4 inch wide and about 4 inches long.  Then I cut tiny cuts in the paper and then rolled it just like you would a coil...flatten it out a little and viola...a flower.  I have learned most of my quilling methods from Quilled Creations (google, I don't know if I can post a link here), but it is a pretty great/friendly website.  The site owner has a book I bought called, Paper Quilling for the First Time, another handy tool in learning techniques.   I haven't quilled in a while, but posting these pictures makes me want to start up again.
Here is a close up of the flowers.

I am by no means an expert, but I will help with any questions I can.

106  quilling flower magnets in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 11, 2008 01:30:17 PM
I took a miniature terra cotta pot and cut it in half (this was the hardest part without breaking it) and quilled the flowers, then put magnets on the back.  This was a present for a friend's birthday. The pot was about an inch and a half...so the whole thing was about 2.5"

107  quilling in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by summertimerolls on: January 11, 2008 01:09:38 PM
Here is a project I did last January...it is a family tree for my mother.  I've always loved paper, and I found an art/craft just for me...quilling!  I think there have been some quilling posted before, but if you don't know you have tiny (1/8 inch wide) papers that you roll into coils...then you can shape the coils or make an larger picture.
This fit into an 8x10" opening in a frame, but I don't know the exact size...  I think this is my most favorite quilling I've done.  Most projects aren't quite this big...plus I designed it too.

And here is a close up

108  animals in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by summertimerolls on: January 09, 2008 02:34:35 PM
Hi, I've been watching for a while and I finally thought it was time to post.

I think Momma duck looks pissed off.  I used Ana Paula Rimoli patterns for the duck and fish, the monkey was a freebie at Michaels.

This monkey was made for a friend's son.  It started out as a cute idea, then quickly turned into a nightmare of brown single crochet. He is about two feet long...the momma duck and fish are only about 5 inches, which I had done first and didn't realize the time it would take to finish the monkey...I feel the monkey looks a bit gansta-ish.

109  pebble mosaic in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by summertimerolls on: January 09, 2008 01:33:09 PM
Hi, this is my first post, I'm having a hard time so I hope this works and is in the right place.  I made this mosaic for my parents 40th anniversary.  It is 2'x2' and covered with hand placed pebbles.  The tree contains 40 'leaves' representing the 40 years together.  They are 'planting' in their yard in the spring.
