S | Quilling by Niki Rowland

S Niki Rowland GoGo Getaway Cocoa Vanilla Studio Midnight

Hello! Niki here today and I have been quilling! Madie taught a class in October that used quilling as a technique. She created beautiful quilled shapes around a word. I have created a single letter and filled mine with quilled shapes instead, for a slightly different take.

I made a template for my letter which I drew lightly in pencil directly onto my layout.  I then picked out some quilling strips to coordinate with the paper collection I was planning to use. I started off by using strips to create the outline of my letter. I then curled the other strips into shapes and stuck those inside my letter.

I used multiple colours within the quilled letter. Some curls were very tight, others very loose, and several inbetween! I’ve used the Cocoa Vanilla Midnight collection for this layout about my beautiful girl.
