Janetta van Roekel who comes from Holland does the most amazing work and was awarded Fellowship of the Guild this time, well deserved. She is always available to share her ideas too and is very inspirational. I hope to try some of her ideas in the coming weeks.
In the meantime this is her multi-prize winning competition piece.
It is one of those fabulous pieces you could spend ages looking at - each square has a different flower in it and the rainbow of them is so effective.
This is a close up of one of the sections.
Janetta also won the Salver for this piece which is awarded to what is considered an excellent piece of work on display.
Just in front of this picture you can just see this piece of work - I will see if I have a better picture. Not that pictures really do it justice, the work is soooo fine, some of the papers are literally 0.5mm thick or thinner it is amazing.
I will report more on this in another post.
Finally today while I am on prize winning pieces this is another piece that was fascinating to look at and was produced by Josie Jenkins.
This was awarded the Rosebowl which is awarded for an interesting piece on display that was not entered in a competition.
The graduated paper sets it off beautifully.
Good news for local followers is that this event is coming to Sherborne in Dorset next year so you too can come along and admire all these gorgeous pieces of work - and don't worry I will very much be reminding you nearer the time!!
For a limited time you can also join the Quilling Guild for ONLY £10 which for a year with 3 lovely magazines is superb value. Next year you could come along to our shared ideas day the day after the AGM to have a play and get some inspiration.
