New Quilling Mobile Game and Quilling YouTube Channel

I have two exciting launches within the quilling world to tell you about today. Well-known paper artist Yulia Brodskaya of ArtYulia just launched the first-ever quilling mobile game app, Paper Mingle. It features her colorful, tactile art within which players merge identical paper tiles to solve tasks. Search for "Paper Mingle" at Google Play or the Apple App Store, download it for free, and give it a whirl!

Yulia says that one of the main reasons behind the game is to reach an audience that otherwise wouldn't give much thought to paper crafting. "Let's face it: in relative terms not many people are familiar with quilling, and have no idea what they are missing. Paper Mingle will introduce our beloved craft to a whole new audience."

She created the game with three developer friends and considers her part the easy one. "I just quilled the images. It was my friends who worked their coding magic and made my pictures move and interact. We have been working on the game for over a year during our free time, so I've been eagerly anticipating sharing the news for quite a while. I learned so much during this process! It was totally new territory for me, but very exciting as well." Enjoy this little taste...

 

 

 
 
"So often I hear people say "Paper art/quilling, what is that?" in response to my attempt to explain what I do, so I even sneaked an explanation of the term quilling into the game. If you download it, see if you can spot it!"

"My hope for Paper Mingle is to become a little gateway into quilling and paper craft. To help achieve such a long-distance goal it would be great if people who like the game would help to spread the word by leaving positive reviews on the app. Then it - and quilling - will be introduced to a wider audience."

The game is free to play, however, there are optional in-app items that can be purchased, such as boosters, new music tracks, additional moves or extra lives. Recommended for ages 4+. From the comments I've seen, adults are enjoying it too! Download to your phone or iPad and click on the push pin to get started.

Update 1-17-2020: If you are puzzled about how to play, it is similar to 2048. Yulia and her team are taking feedback seriously and are working to improve the game.

And now for the second development... there's a new quilling YouTube channel in town! I first heard about it when Charlotte in Sydney, Australia let me know she'd just posted a video review of The Art of Quilling Paper Jewelry, my third book. Not only does Charlotte have kind words to say about it, but she shows several of her own designs created after learning to make jewelry via the projects. This was music to my ears, as it's always my goal to encourage quillers to develop a style all their own.
 
 

 

 

Charlotte's channel is unique in that it brings an especially thoughtful approach to quilling. In addition to how-to videos, she discusses aspects of creativity and will be interviewing quilling artists and reviewing more books on a regular basis. It just launched two weeks ago and already several videos have been posted. Have a look and subscribe to The Quilling Quarter. If you're on Instagram, you'll find Charlotte at @the_quilling_quarter.
