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!!

  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!

  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...)
