Custom Quilling Spotlighted Quiller!

Hi all, I received an email earlier this month from Denise at Custom Quilling asking me to be the spotlighted quiller for their March newsletter! It came at just the right time, right after I found out that I hadn't been picked for a design team contest, and was the perfect encouragement that I needed. There have been many gifted, talented and experienced quillers, whom I have drawn inspiration, instruction and encouragement for my quilling, that have been spotlighted in past newsletters and I am honored to be chosen to be among them.
Click on the this link: and it will take you to the page where the newsletter is listed. Click on the March 2009 and it will open up a PDF page. You will need to have Adobe Reader to open it, and there is a link to download it free on the same page.
The monthly newsletter has a great section on projects using the current monthly kit's supplies by Custom Quilling's Design Team, which I was also asked to be a guest designer! You know the saying, "when one door is closed a window is opened", it's true! Custom Quilling has a wonderful selection of paper arts supplies, ideas, kits, embellishments, books, patterns, etc. Click on the banner link on the right sidebar anytime to check out all the creative and inspiring things to turn paper into art at Denise's site! Check out her quilling gallery as well, there you will find beautiful quilled keepsake invitations and announcements and other quilling art!
The quilled keepsake invitation that is above is done in the brides colors and flowers, red folded roses and gold calla lilies with quilled leaves and buds. It is accented with gold pearlescent vellum punched flowers that have gold pearl centers and two quilled entwined hearts which I like to put on wedding invitations. I like this color combination and the brown background makes the red and gold pop.
Check out the newsletter and leave me a comment on what you think
Until the next post,
