Little Circles owner, Erin Curet, has her finger on the pulse of quillers... she anticipates our every need and want, be it new paper colors, widths or tools. When she wrote to ask if I would host a new product giveaway, of course I agreed - her supplies are super-popular!

Collage Portraits by Annie Brandicourt

Every now and then I'll spot paper art on Instagram that simply stops me in my tracks. That was the case when I came across collage portraits of family, friends and pets that Annie Brandicourt creates with the simplest supplies - magazine pages, scissors and a glue stick - by referring to a photograph. Each one wows with expressive realism.

Monochromatic Hand-Torn Paper Art - Interview with Bianca Severijns

Bianca Severijns contacted me back in November about the unusual nature-inspired art she creates with layers of hand-torn paper. Because she had recently been featured on Strictly Paper (a site that I'm happy to say is posting regularly again - I'd missed it!), I sent her a series of questions to bring new information to light about her work. I enjoyed reading Bianca's thoughtful responses and hope you will also.

Custom Quilled Necklace Pendant

A few years ago a friend asked me to quill a birthday gift for her husband who is a paper conservator; thus, he's quite familiar with quilling and its long history. You might remember the distelfink I made for him. Fast forward to this past fall... we met for dinner and both admired a quilled pendant I was wearing... later he contacted me with ideas for a new design that wanted to give his wife.
