Quilled Birth Announcement

If you're into quilling, chances are you've made a duck or two. Who can resist - they're cute, right? Quack!

Quilled Birth Announcement

I really liked the design of this announcement I was asked to quill... it's simple, classy, and the little dots reminded me of bubbles. Bubbles led to thoughts of water, which of course led to ducks... so why not make one to represent each member of the family?

There's the new little guy, squawking a bit, and paddling along as fast as he can to catch up with his twin siblings, mom, and dad. Even the tiniest bits of paper can be rolled and shaped in ways to show expression... and that's something that never fails to amaze me about quilling.

By the way, I erased the baby's name for privacy purposes, in case you were thinking he just goes by initials. :)

That is absolutely adorable! I so wish I had the patience to DO this. I love quilling ... but never take time out to do it. I love you sharing your projects with us!

Very, very pretty. And the ducks are adorable!

Ann -- I just love your work. Framing the announcement with the ribbon and attaching your quilling to that keeps the design simple, yet very striking.

Thanks for sharing!

Ann, these ducks are great - I love them like I do the little bluebirds I've made! I have not made ducks yet, but I won't be able to say that after this afternoon, I'm sure. Thanks for the great post.

Super Cute. I love quilling but have yet to try ducks. :) This is good inspiration. And is that a ribbon border? Brilliant.
