More about this item
Handcrafted by me in New Hampshire. This is a custom piece. You send me the announcement, advise me of a color, and I quill, mat and custom frame in a gold frame. I ship back to you to give to the parents or grandparents. A very special gift. The photo is a close up of a recent announcement that I framed. More designs and samples are on my website at www.quillingbysandrawhite.com. What is Quilling? Quilling is a very old craft. Its name comes of the old practice of trimming the gold edges from books, and then winding the narrow strips of paper around feather quills, using the quill for the tool. Once rolled into circles and pinched into various shapes, the paper is used as texture and detail in pictures. The wedding invitations which I create use the traditional method of quilling, which places flowers on top of the invitation, which is then matted and custom framed. In my other pieces, I incorporate my own technique which uses the quill work as a background and details to cut-outs of wildlife. The quill work simulates the feathers in the duck and birds, the scales on the fish, the veins in the wildflowers, and the fur on the moose.
