My Polymer Quilling Article Published in The Polymer Arts Spring 2015 Issue!

Now that the spring 2015 Diversity issue of The Polymer Arts magazine was released today, I am thrilled to share that I've been published again! For this publication, I wrote a tutorial-type article detailing my tips and tricks for polymer quilling. The digital issue was sent out to subscribers today and the print issues should be arriving in the mail to subscribers very soon! Here's a peek at the cover photo and my article pages:

I'm including below, a gallery of the pieces which are included in the article; all of which were created during the documentation of the various methods that I found for creating this look. Though they are not included in the article, you might remember my 2 other quilled polymer pieces, my Creation Story Turtle Wallhanging and my most recent challenge piece, the Once Upon a Time book cover which you can see at those corresponding links.

The main project I created for this article was the piece that you can clearly see on the first page of the article above. This piece was designed to become my new logo for Create My World Designs which you can see (without the polymer quilled font over top) in my new banner above! The addition of the polymer quilled font was made for my profile photo on the Create My World Designs Facebook page. Here are large photos of that piece, both with and without the font:

Other pieces created during the writing of the article were this bunch of Christmas ornaments, 3 snowflakes which were made for my guild swap, an upcycled lightbulb covered in polymer with quilled polymer spirals and a freeform polymer filigree which was mounted to a satin covered styrofoam ornament accented with beads:

And finally these 2 pair of earrings were created while working out best practices for polymer quilling:

I am once again, over-the-moon happy to have an article published in one of my favorite periodicals! You can read the article and learn all about my methods to create polymer quilling by purchasing the issue or subscribing to The Polymer Arts at their website.  Many Thanks to Sage Bray (editor) and The Polymer Arts staff for the opportunity to be included in this publication! If you missed the other 2 places I've been published, they are: the Summer 2012 Recycle & Reuse issue of The Polymer Arts, which I wrote about here and the book Art Without Waste by Patty Wongpakdee which I wrote about here. If you subscribe to The Polymer Arts and have the opportunity to read my article, I'd love to hear your comments! I'd love to hear what you think of my new logo too! Post your thoughts below!
