I was looking through a bunch of my old favourites when I decided to write my New Years Resolution when I came across something known as quilling. According to the almighty Wikipedia:
Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.
The rest of the article can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quilling
Here are some examples of quilling:
And here are some tutorials to get you started:
Here is a group dedicated to quilling:
I couldn't help but notice that quilling isn't a defined category you can select when you're selecting categories available on DA. Arguably, it does fit under the broad Folding & Papercraft category, although considering the amount of quilling work on DA I can't help but think making a gallery under quilling would help define it as a true art form on DA and encourage others to try out this medium. What are your thoughts?
