Giant Paper Fans at the Sydney Royal Easter Show

Last week's post about a quilled balalaika by Licia Politis showed just one small facet of the paper art that was featured at this year's Sydney Royal Easter Show in the Arts & Crafts Pavilion. You see, before Licia began working on her individual entry, she and a team of Sydney quillers were busy creating rolled paper fans that would draw visitors to the section where paper creations were displayed.

Another year, another Sydney Royal Easter Show, and another award-winning piece by my talented Australian friend, Licia Politis! For this year's competition she chose to create a quilled tribute to her beloved and musical father-in-law who passed away last August.

She makes such beautiful jewelry with care, precision and high-quality findings, of course I agreed!

I have a feeling this brand new book is one many of you will enjoy hearing about because 'folded book' is the most frequently searched term here at All Things Paper! Craft author and designer Clare Youngs created 35 how-to projects, all made from discarded books, that look fun and easy enough to complete in an evening for her latest title Folded Book Art.

Custom Quilled Ketubah - in Progress

Here's a look at what I've been working on - a quilled ketubah (i.e. a Jewish prenuptial agreement that is signed just before the wedding and later framed and hung in the home). I love doing quilled monograms and whenever I'm presented with a new one, it's like a game to figure out how best to sculpt the letters so they fit together in a pretty way. In this case, I shaped them to resemble the lettering on the couple's wedding invitation.
