Paper Twirlies People - Paper Art Plus
Shirley B. is the creator behind Paper Art Plus. She loves to craft but paper related crafts are her first love. Along with quilling, she does books and journals, coasters, blankets, ATC's, and more. Here is a team interview:
Tell us a little about yourself, your store, and your crafts.
I'm a English woman living in Anchorage Alaska...met and married a GI in England and we eventually ended up here. My store has an eclectic mix of goodies. I like to work in a variety of craft mediums, including paper, fabric, and tile.
What role does art/crafts play in your life?
A great part! It keeps me sane and is a good distraction from pain conditions!
How were you introduced to paper quilling?
A friend sent me a kit in a swap years ago...and I was hooked.
How long have you been paper quilling?
About 8 years.
What is your favourite quilling artform/technique?
Gosh, a hard question! I like doing all sorts of techniques and trying new ones!
In your eyes, what makes your quilling unique?
Another hard question! I do tend to stay with flowers and leaves but that isn't really unique! You can learn more about Shirley and all her crafts on her blog: A bit of this... a bit of that!
