Newest Deviations






So, welcome back in my life, everybody! I hope you didn't miss me too much?
Spring has broken once again, and my mood is rising along with the temperature. See? :la::la::la::la::la::la::la::la:
And as usual, I have taken on far too much, because somehow, it seems to keep me happy. Thus I decided to try out some new hobbies as well as get back to some old ones.

One of my new ones already has the honour of featuring in this journal's title: quilling.
If you have never heard of it before, don't worry: you're perfectly normal. It's a very obscure pastime. Even on dA there are but few deviations to be found (relatively spoken, of course. Everything is relative.).
In short, quilling comes down to this: take a long, thin strip of paper, roll it up to shape a spiral, and shape it in the way you want. A lot of shapes together create a masterpiece! (It really isn't difficult, the only skill it requires is patience. A lot of patience, although good music usually helps.)

I know abstract doesn't really work, so here are some links to quilling deviations to show you what I mean:

Wolf Paper Quilling -Final by Blue-Storm-Spirit
quilling greeting card by Shreshtha24
quilling bird by kadifecraft
quilling book by mysticdragon3
quilling by sombra33
Quilling pendants by OmbryB
Quilled Egg by 3annabah

To get you started: Basic Quilling Tutorial by johannachambers

If you clicked all the links, I'll give you a piece of cake. :)
  • Listening to: Bruce Springsteen
  • Reading: Terry Pratchett- Discworld series
  • Watching: spirals unfolding
  • Drinking: H2O + minerals = tap water

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.I asked "why?"The angel said "angels don't watch over angels."Twenty one angels are IN your world. Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.Send this to ten friends including me. I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies, someone you love will quietly surprise you.Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says its over. A blessing is coming your way.If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP Everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain.Send to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard

Thank you. I'm glad I was able to introduce it to you. :) As I said, it's an unknown art form.
