Last winters, my focus shifted from quilling to cross stitching.
Cross stitching has been my old love .It came back to visit me this winters again .:) So now I was all about stitching motifs.
But then flew down my 8-year-old nephew from abroad, who is quite creative and loves card making.
Last Spring, I had sent him a quilling kit and some quilled cards, but I guess due to unavailability of any practical teacher , he lost his interest quickly.
He is too young to learn from youtube.
So , when he came here, he requested me to teach him some quilling.
We made some fabulous cards, with various quilling techniques like simple quilling , shaping coils, combing, beehive techniques.
He is a quick learner and works neatly. He was able to grasp the basic motion of hand and fingers, how to hold the roll between fingers, how to make a tight roll, how to roll quickly, how to handle paper strips without getting a paper cut .
I hope he will practice and use his quilling skills to create many new cards.
Here are the cards made by him during his learning sessions:
And here is an additional one, taught him punchcraft too, and here what he made, a card for his little sister , Aarika :
