Quilling—the art of rolling and shaping strips of paper into intricate decorative designs—has been popular for hundreds of years. In Quilling Art, Turkish paper artist Sena Runa gives this time-honored craft a stylish and contemporary update sure to appeal to the 21st century artist.
The 20 stunning projects include a guitar, apple, owl, butterfly, cloud, heart, and other popular designs and motifs. Pairing elaborate design with a clever use of color creates exciting effects in the projects, which vary in complexity to appeal to quillers of all skill levels. Each project features easy-to-follow instructions with step-by-step photographs and templates that take guess work out of the quilling process. More than just a project book, Quilling Art is a full-blown course in papercraft that will help you develop skills and techniques that will allow you to create your own show-stopping designs.
Turkish born Sena Runa discovered her love of paper quilling a few years ago and now devotes all her time to it. She has enjoyed developing her own particular style and approach, using bright pops of color or graduating shades. The result is fun, fresh and modern.
