The Lovely Art of Paper Filligree and Quilling

I met a friend through Etsy whose work just fascinates me. Paula Bauer uses paper for 3D works of art that are just gorgeous! I have been enthralled with paper quilling for years! Having never attempted it myself, I am very impressed when I see the pieces in person. Photography just doesn't do them justice, as the work is so delicate and tiny.






Enjoy the eye candy! Please stop by and visit Paula at her blog, Give it a Twirl, her Etsy shop, Gem State Quilling, and her website Gem State Quilling. The website has some amazing products and ideas but I was unable to grab the images to show you! Right on her home page is a lovely oil candle lamp with the base wrapped in paper blooms and a dragonfly! Ahhh!!! It's perfect for spring!!
Thank you Paula for sharing these pics with me!

OMGosh....that is unbelievable! It makes my head hurt to even think about the concentration it must take to do this. I will check out her sites! Thanks, Abbie :-)

Quilling taken to a whole new level there, too! Very impressive...are you going to give it a try?

I have an award for you today with no strings attached.

Abbie,
I posted a comment earlier, but it seems I messed up somehow and it didn't go through.

It's always delightful to hear when one's work has found favor...but your glowing praise leaves me a bit tongue-tied! (My family would readily affirm that this is an infrequent state for me!)

Thank you so much, ladies, for the encouragement and compliments. It provided a nice boost to my lagging, dragging creative muse. As good for the spirit as sunshine and warmth (which is lacking in my stretch of Idaho sky today...again.)
