Finding That Artistic Center

In my quest to satisfy my artistic hunger and at the same time unclutter my life, I came up with the idea to re-purpose some old books as a Christmas gift project.

Among the many art supplies, I had a quilling tool. Quilling was something that fascinated me many years ago but I never had the patience nor the time to create or complete a project. The tool came in handy when I decided to fill Christmas balls with pages from books.

For one of my projects, I took a chapter that I had contributed to a business book and folded it and then used some of the pages to create scrolls for the Christmas ball. I also filled the ball with glitter balls for added fun.

For the Angel Book, I painted over some of the pages with gold acrylic before cutting and quiling them into scrolls. I added gold glitter balls and feathers.

Projects like these are truly a labor of love. I find that when I make these, I am thinking of the person who will receive these gifts.

After a diverse career in Corporate America, I am freeing myself of a ton of ego traps; chief among them is "perfectionism." Watercolor, when left to its own devices and imperfections seems to create something more beautiful than intended. I am still a student and love the learning journey. Sharing that with friends and family in the form of greeting cards, has been a surprise filled with joy.
