The Starry Night Painting in Quilling

Recently Matthew Wengerd of A Fine Press, a custom event stationery boutique in Florida, blogged about some quillwork he admired. I noticed he had come across something new and quite exciting... a wedding photo shoot based on a favorite painting of mine, van Gogh's The Starry Night. Rachel Hanson, of Rachel Hanson Designs, was responsible for the menu and seating card graphics. Immediately drawn to the swirls, she realized this was the perfect opportunity to try her hand at paper quilling, something she had been intending for some time.
Rachel designed lovely French-inspired menu cards and enhanced them with quilled scrolls and colors that perfectly complimented the theme.She scripted the names of Van Gogh, his family, close friends, and even the doctor who worked on his ear (gotta love a quiller with a sense of humor) on elegant, quilled place cards.

See more pictures at the Junebug Weddings blog, including paper lanterns and a fabulous cake. I might add that my own wedding colors were blue, yellow, and white... if only I'd been into quilling then!

  1. Hey, Ann -

    Thanks for the link love!

    I'm so amazed at the work of people who "try their hand" at something new and create such beautiful results!

  2. You're very welcome, Matthew. I agree... it's great to come across someone like Rachel who has taken to quilling so naturally.

  3. Wow what an incredible wedding that must have been. Certainly a day no one will forget.
