Grá O'Neill Paper Learning Curve: Paper Smooches Good Gab, Quilling

Clare Buswell's fabulous quilling inspired me to try my hand at a simple quilled heart. Clare's quilled creations are amazing and this is my very simple version of quilling. I acquired a quilling tool a few years ago, but never used it. I still haven't as I couldn't find it and had to fashion one out of a toothpick! Not the best start, but it was very enjoyable, I love the tightly coiled pieces of paper. I probably coiled them too tightly as I was enjoying it too much!

Grá O'Neill Paper Learning Curve: Paper Smooches Good Gab, Quilling

This card is very CAS, one layer of cardstock with one graphic image/embellishment made from one thin strip and lots of white space. I had to resist all temptation to keep adding layers- not an easy task for me. I loved it, as a result of my first attempt at quilling a wonky heart. But was it enough? I had my doubts, but I slapped my hands away and I'm proud of my restraint. I now love it because it's so CAS, plus my SIL said it was nice too. We all like to hear nice things.
