Quilling Basics - Alberta Neal


Roll the paper, stick and shape it. After that roll another paper strip, stick and shape it. Do that again and again! These are three simple steps which define the technique named quilling.

Quilling is an ancient form of art, accessible to any body and also inexpensive. It isn’t highly exacting and the needed tools and materials are affordable. You can use materials from the bookstore or whatever you find in the house. Through this technique you have the possibility to accomplish amazing works of art. The book "Quilling basics: Discover the magic world of surprises in quilling" approaches the quilling technique, also known as paper filigree.

How does it work? It’s simple: you put a strip of paper through the eye of a needle and roll the needle until the paper ends. You’ll obtain a coil. From here, things can evolve in accordance with the artist’s desire, pinching the coil into diversified shapes: triangles, squares, diamonds, teardrops or other personalized models.

Quilling is a wonderful technique and quite easy. Working with quilling helps to improve your imagination, it reduces stress and will lead to good profits for those who want to approach the business part of this art. Any gifted person will realize that paper filigree is much easier than painting or drawing. Here you are allowed to mix colours and materials, to let your imagination free, and to diversify shapes which only an artist’s imagination can come up with.

Do you want to find out how creative you are?

Roll the paper and bring it alive. Create new shapes, found quilling clubs and help others to enjoy the magic of this art. As I have previously mentioned, the quilling can embrace the business part which can go hand in hand with pleasure and fun, and for the young ones it is a good opportunity to learn new things.

In short, not to keep you waiting, I invite you to throw a glance at the models in this edition and to bring to life the shapes you meet.


- Motivational Story


It was a late autumn day, when the frosty winds were racing through the streets and the cold rain was falling on the pavement. I remember I was warmly dressed, but despite this fact, my ears had started to hurt because of the icy weather.

Finally, from around the corner the tram appeared and I managed to get on the wet, slippery stairs. Between the shivering people, I saw a place which could save me from the cold weather. Through the noise and wandering voices I perceived the bright face of a small girl with red lips and big, sparkling eyes who were curiously following me while I got out of my purse a paper strip and the quilling needle tool.

At the beginning, the girl was curious and kept asking her mother about the new things she saw. The girl’s mother, under the siege of many questions, came to me and asked if what I was doing was something new and where she could buy it for her daughter. Chatting, the tram continued its way and approached the station where the mother and the girl had to get off. Saying a warming Good bye! the girl and her mother got lost in the crowd. I found out then that the girl’s name was Cosmina and that she was passionate and curious about everything which means creation. With her pure heart, she had managed to put a smile on my face, even on such a late autumn day.

For a while, our paths came together. Every time the girl used to sit silently next to me. I got used to her watching me and I tried to roll the paper strips as slowly as possible to give her time to learn. So attentive she was I expected her to become a special person when she grew up. But that was to be seen as the time passed.

And, this way, in the tram that was narrowing through the cold streets of the late autumn day, I was smiling next to Cosmina as I watched her bloom every day. The time was passing
