Виолински кључ/Treble Clef

I've been asked frequently where I get my ideas. Without any pretensions, and I do hope this wont sound like a cliche, all I can say is that people inspires me. I said before that I don't make any philosophy out of my work but I do involve a lot of emotions ( I even shared a few tears while making some of them ).
I mostly do my cards by order. Some of my clients I know personally, more or less, and there are many I have never met but somehow I do feel like I know them while listening to their wishes and stories. Luckily, they all know what they want, so that makes things much easier to do. Or they just let me to make my own choices, which is also great.
I admit I enjoy most in thinking what to make and when I get the idea I have to make it instantly. It's not always so easy. People order my cards for special events and for their closest family members or friends so I have to think of many things. First, I have to be satisfied with my quilling. Then, I think if customer would be pleased with it and, finally, it has to be the right one for the recipient. But, it seems like I hit the point because most of them get back with new orders.  
This framed violin wasn't suppose to be done this way. Every day I listen to a young boy who is a piano player, a great talent so I heard. His name is Filip and I wanted to make Cyrillic letter F ( ''Ф " ) with keyboard on the left and notes on the right side. I changed my mind since it's been awhile since I hanged some framed work on my wall. Letter  "F ""  is going to be my next one. Maybe.
I've been asked many times how I do my letters. There is not so much difference in this violin key and some of my letters. I decided to show process of making this one. Stripe, the black one that goes around the key, is 200gsm paper, 1.1cm wide. It's perfect for making letters. I rarely use patterns. I'm lousy with brush, pen etc. It's much easier to me to take a scissors and make a shape to avoid drawing.
From these wide black stripes, I cut small shapes and roll it a bit, just to make more dimension. You can see through it's holes, it's kind a cute. I think I'll do this many times in the future. I cut black paper, the same hard one, glue a stripes of ivory and black quilling paper. I have to thank, again, to Marylin for giving me an opportunity to work with quilling paper. It's really magical. I keep it in my drawer, look at it all the time and this was the perfect moment to use it.
So, when I did the keys, I glue it to the stripes of black paper which is pretty difficult to do.

These letters are only 0.5cm high, and the one in cone are maybe even half of it. Yes, I should say what that means! These are words of Ludwig van Beethoven:"Real art lasts for eternity", or something like that.
I tried to take many shots, in the morning, at sunset, under artificial light...bad photos. It's not so dark in live but I do hope you can see what needs to be seen.
 I like the way red paper shows.
 This photo shows bass keys of Beethoven's Sonate 9,  "The Ode to Joy".
And, this is it. Thanks for visiting my blog. Enjoy your day!

Suzana, it's simply gorgeous! You added so many details, not to mention emotion... The piano keys, the bass keys from Beethoven's "Ode to Joy", everywhere you look a little something catches your eye. I love it!

Suzana....when I opened your blog post did you hear my squeal of joy all the way from Canada. You should have, since it was loud enough. For some reason I have had quilled musical notes on the brain trying to figure out what to do with them and then I open your post to see this magnificent quilling of yours. It is simply amazing. I am like you where drawing it out first doesn't work for me but for you to have this piece of work in your head is a true artist.

Your explanation is great and we can see your pictures perfectly. I love it all but my favourite part is the black strips cut out and rolled a bit {and the piano keys are AMAZING too...I can see why it would be challenging, and the red letters too}.

My dream day would be to be a fly on the wall to watch you create...and maybe join in on the quilling too.

Thanks for making my day
Cheers to you
Cheryl

This is beyond amazing, Suzana. As many others have already said, you, my friend, are an ARTIST! This goes beyond any paper crafting. This required insight and depth and imagination and creativity beyond the norm. Congratulations to you for having such an amazing gift!

I visit your blog quite regularly and I was to to to bed but I thought "maybe thre's something new" before I switch everything off:-) and here it is. My son plays the piano and it would make a great card for his teacher but unfortunately I won't manage although I enjoy quilling. And your blog inspires me in a way. Pity, I can't see the production:-(
I hope you'll post more and more.

Ja se odskora zanimam za quilling i videla sam puno prelepih radova ali Vasi su zaista posebni! Jako ste kreativni i jos nigde nisam naisla na radove poput vasih! Zanima me samo koji lepak koristite jer je to meni najveci problem? Hvala unapred!

Snezana said...

Zaista neverovatno! Videla sam puno prelepih radova ali Vasi su najbolji!Odskoro se zanimam za quilling i volela bih da mi pomognete u odabiru lepka to mi je veliki problem?! Cenim Vas rad i verujem da ste jedan od najboljih quiller-a u svetu! Srdacan pozdrav! Snezana Kragujevac!

Сузана Илић said...

Snezana, hvala na komplimentima. U avgustu sam pisala o ljepilu koje koristim ( post "Alati" ). Rijec je o obicnom, skolskom, providnom ljepilu na vodenoj bazi. Mislim da umnogome zavisi i to koji papir koristite jer ( po onome sto sam ja iskusila ) ne reaguje svaki papir isto na moje, vec isprobano, ljepilo. Iskreno, i meni je u posljednje vrijeme iskrsnuo isti problem, kao da se sastav onog provjerenog promijenio, tako da sam i ja u potrazi za boljim.
Puno pozdrava!

Hi Suzana,

I have recently picked up quilling as a hobby and your work inspires me beyond words. This piano piece is so intricate and amazing. Just watching the pictures induce such emotions, I wonder how it would feel to see it in real!

You are a true artist. Hats off to your art!
