framed...Chinese fortunes...Love (Paper Arts with Creativity, #5110, p9)

Lucky in Love

Love is in the air — and is expressed in this design, featuring lucky “love” fortunes, spilling out of an origami Chinese box.  Underneath are multiple layers of paper, each one a different texture and most handmade by the artist.  Please take a peek at her other origami designs.

 

 

framed...origami butterfly

Butterfly Whimsy

This piece began with a longing for the bright, saturated color that comes with the approaching warmer months.  The butterfly is crafted from vellum paper that the artist hand-colored and with wire that she formed.  Please take a peek at her other origami designs.

framed quilling...tulips in woven basket

Basket of Tulips

Springtime was the inspiration for the subject and colors in this piece.  The basket looks woven but is actually formed by combining multiple separate elements.  The entire work was made employing the very old technique of quilling which involves manipulating very narrow strips of paper into individual elements then combining those elements to form a particular design.

 

 

light box...(cranberry, tangerine, ginger, gold mixative)

Photographs cannot do justice to these artful creations.  Each individual glass box is hand-colored by the artist, making no two exactly alike.  Filled with white lights, they uniquely illuminate any space, adding spectacular ambiance.  Many colors are available for your custom design.  Check out more glass light boxes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beatles 50th Anniversary

The inspiration for this piece came from the celebrations commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.  The whimsical G clef is filled with dozens of tiny quilled paper elements and is set atop the music for their hit song, “I’m Happy Just to Dance with You.”  Check out more pieces of artwork featuring quilling.

The quote in the background (hover mouse to see) is from “Brought to My Senses,” a favorite song by Sting. The imagery is the expression of a Mandelbrot set reconfigured by the artist as a kaleidoscope.
