Quilling with the Cameo

This morning I wanted to sit outside on  our screened in porch and enjoy the beauty of the morning. I sit outside almost every morning. On this morning I decided to relax and get creative.

I had some white quilling strip but it wasn't going to be enough to make a little angel. I took off for my Cameo and filled the page with 1/8 of an inch strips and let the Cameo cut away. I was thrilled to not have to go to the craft store to buy more quilling strips. They came out perfect! All I had to do is use a tiny dab of glue and glue the strips end to end to make longer strips.

The angel is less than 1 1/2 inches tall. The face is quilled but I wanted her to have some eyelashes, hair, and lips so I went back to my sweet! Cameo , used the zoom tool, then used the ellipse tool to draw a circle less than 1/4 of an inch, then I used the other tools in Studio to draw a tiny face. The face was read to be sent to the printer, reg. marks set and once again, the Cameo did an amazing job cutting out this tiny little face. I could have cut out the circle and drawn a face by hand but I wanted to see if the Cameo would do it. I test my Cameo all of the time and that sweet cutting machine always comes through.

The little quilled roses were the most tedious of making this angel. If you decide to try making your won quilled angel, wait until you have the angel all made then take your time quilling the roses.

Time to go hug my Cameo for doing such a great job. Thanks for stopping by, I'll be over at the Silhouette Plus forum, or making some new YouTube videos showing some techniques, tips, and tricks of the Studio software. If I can get my hubby to help out; I'll try to make a couple of videos on quilling.

    THANK YOU so much for your visit to my blog and for taking the time to leave a comment, it means a lot to me.

    I wish I could be sitting out on your patio, you with your cameo and me drooling over your cameo but I'd have my silhouette and we would craft up a storm, hay? haha!

    Your quilling really is amazing, I dare not go there at this time but will admire yours muchly.
