White space

Quilling designs often seem to appear in my head overnight - maybe my brain is still quilling while I am asleep!! Anyway, last night I was half-thinking/half-dreaming about two cards which, unlike my usual photographic backgrounds, were characterised by lots of white space surrounding the quilling. All I've added is just a tiny coloured shape as a subtle background graphic. Here they are:

I was thinking along similar lines last week when I made this new dragonfly card:

I'm really not sure whether I dream in colour ... but I've certainly been dreaming in white!!


  1. Philippa,
    Who has the talent to make art in the dream!
    Beautiful work!

  2. Phillipa this post did put a smile to my face!To think you dream quilling-- you must be. I sometimes perform intricate surgical steps in my dreams the night before an important surgery!

  3. Really nice work :)I'd love to have brain which still quilling when I am asleep ;)

  4. Love the dragonfly,and the background to it!

  8. Very nice. Like everyone else, I especially like the first one.

  9. I also prefer the first one, you can not tell whether it`s aunset or sunrise.
    I also have quilling in my head while sleeping, interesting the way we function (alike...)

  10. Very beautiful dreams! I love these cards! They are so elegant with the white space!
