Creative Paper Quilling Blog Hop

Creative Paper Quilling: Wall Art, Jewelry, Cards & More is a new book I completed this past summer along with the editor of CardMaker Magazine, Tanya Fox. Tanya and I first worked together on Quill It Easy in 2008 and I was pleased when she asked if I would like to do another quilling title.

The book is filled with fresh ideas and appealing designs that range from cute to classy, perfect for those who are brand new to paper rolling as well as seasoned pros.

Creative Paper Quilling book

I created jewelry, ornament, and card designs for the book (such as the three examples you see below) and you'll also find framed art and home decor projects.

The official blurb: Creative Paper Quilling contains 28 brand new and exciting quilled designs. Join Ann Martin and other accomplished quilling artists as they share expert technique information, helpful tips and eye-catching designs that are sure to appeal to crafters of all skill levels. Enjoy creating greeting cards for a variety of occasions, charming ornaments for your favorite holidays, stylish jewelry pieces to enhance your wardrobe, and unique wall art and home accents. The Quilling Basics chapter equips readers with sufficient knowledge of supplies and tools to get them started. The Shape Gallery includes images of the quilled shapes used in the book and provides instructions and step-by-step details needed to create each shape.

Creative Paper Quilling is available as a paperback or digital download. And now onward to the last hop stop - CardMaker, where you will find the full list of participants. Enjoy!

Ann,
Congrats on another book! It looks delightful. I haven't been very tuned in to anything in the paper arts world, so it was a huge delight to discover your growing list of published work!

So proud of all you have accomplished in bringing the paper arts, particularly paper filigree, some well deserved recognition! Miss our days of creative synergy and design troubleshooting and frequent chats.
Blessings, my friend!

Ann Martin said...

Thanks Paula! It's so nice to hear from you again and yes, those were very fun times. I hope one day soon you'll come back to the paper fold. :)
