Hi Paula,
It is April 1 and April Fool's Day. I have no kids at home so avoid the jokes around here.
here in Australia we are getting ready for Easter. Quite a few people go away as it is school holidays as well in some States.
I myself am not going away this year.
I finished my Easter cards on Monday.
Next i hope to do a wedding anniversary card.
How about you?

Hi Paula, yes it has been quiet. I am getting ready as my in-laws are coming today for the weekend. I have also been learning my Spanish which has been keeping me quite busy, also I bought a violin the other day so I am waiting for that to come as I am taking that up to. As for quilling, I haven't been working on much lately but I did post up a new tutorial.

Hi Bronwyn and Paula, I just did a card for display in one of the shops stocking our supplies. I husked a butterfly with graduated papers and it looks fabulous, better than I had hoped. I also did a couple of fringed flowers, 2 in pearlised metallic white with purple center and the middle one is the pearlised metallic fringed pom pom center with a 3cm strip of purple silk laid paper (very soft, almost material like) on the outskirts. Took a pic but need to do it on an angle to see the beautiful graduated look of the colours. I have used a nice dark purple card and brought it out with a lavender piece on foam blocks. Very happy with it
I have another really big one on the go with a lady looking through a window but trapped with vines over a garden with water fountain. I have finished the lady in sepia tone (sketched print) and the window and vines. Now I am quilling the water fountain. I am in 2 minds as to use paper or glue to get the water effect on the fountain. Any suggestions?

Karon,it sounds like you have your hands full too.
Would love to see your work, specially the woman looking out the window ,it sounds so beautiful. The only thing that comes to mind on the water fall is to use two tone blue and silver glitter, probably bad idea, but I tried,LOL.I am excited to see it finished.Happy Easter!

Thanks Paula,
I think you have inspired many of us to try a lady in our quilling. My lady is a printed sketch (I can't draw for nuts) but unquilled. She is trapped inside the window with vines and the sepia tones represent she is trapped in her old world. I have quilled a fountain and it looks okay so far, not completely thrilled with it. The lady is on the right of the page so she is looking out at the garden and quilled colour. Next I just have to work out where all the garden area will go. it is one of those projects you keep going back too! The silk laid I am quilling on is hand made a takes a bit of glue to adhere to unfortunately so I have to use a bit extra and I am hoping it won't affect my project too much when I photograph it later. The card I am stoked with and might do a similar one in different colours. You have to take quite an angle with the husking to get the effects of the colour. I have used a versa mark clear ink for my card as you can use it on any colour card and it gives a darker look ink to that particular colour card you use. Very effective, highly recommend anyone trying it
