De Toutes les Couleurs


I made this little craft last week-end.
It was more than time to use these colourful paper stripes, usually made for paper quilling and purchased long time ago.

I first started to make these paper beads, not knowing what I’ll do with them afterward.
And finally, things turned out naturally, when I collected this branch in the street.
Sometimes, I feel me like a magpie collecting everything… But that’s not so bad until I find a way to reuse, right ?



Regarding paper quilling, did you see the book cover made by Yulia Brodskaya illustrating Santa’s beard and hat ? Simply amazing !…

And I would like to thank Nicole for choosing my little pic for the ‘self-portrait contest’ she organised. A pleasant surprise !
You can have a look at it on her lovely blog

Craft & Inspiration

paper quilling

Tell me, do you know what paper quilling is ?

Honestly, I didn’t know until recently.

I was shopping downtown and I saw these colourful strips of paper.

Eye catching, isn’t it ? Well, I have this addiction to colours that I can’t explain…

So I checked the packaging: Paper quilling was written on it. I was puzzled, because I still didn’t know what is it made for…

As the shop had a book section, I looked for one that would hopefully mention this craft. I could finally visualise it and purchased this rainbow made of paper.

Back home, I made a quick search on Internet and stumble upon the site of talented graphic designer Yulia Brodskaya !

If you want to get the picture about paper quilling, go and visit her site ! Really, it’s amazing ! If you do love illuminated book, let’s imagine a modern version of it in 3D ! Excellent examples, full of creativity.

Even if you are not crafty, it’s just so inspiring to look at her work


Since then, I just have one idea in mind: to try my hand at it !
