The new book "The Adventure of a Water Droplet Pally"

A new concept in paper quilling is a children's book with quilling artwork illustrations!

Quilling, also known as paper filigree, it has been around since the Renaissance age, but I was only recently introduced to it by my friend. This art of cutting and curling narrow strips of paper and laying them on edge to form intricate filigree designs sparked my interest and I found it fun and pretty relaxing. 

When Karina, the young artist, suggested making artwork illustration in paper quilling for our ecological fairytale about water drop, I was happy. But I cannot even imagine what a talented artist can do with just a few colorful strips of paper.

To see the fairytale with quilling artwork illustrations one feels like a MIRACLE!

  I’m a fairy taller and the author of the numerous children's books but I haven’t seen the illustrations for the children books as impressive as quilling artwork illustrations made by Karina. They are really magic, fairy and brilliantly introduce the conception of the book.

Quilling artwork illustrations give the book a magnificent look!  These artwork illustrations for the children book take quilling in the whole new level.  
This is the first our children book illustrated by the talented artist Karina. Now she is at work on the next book "The Golden Bee" about healing property of honey, and I can't wait to see her next artwork. 

with love, author

Personal Photo books for orphans

Cover of the photo book. 
     I want to share with you one idea. Last year we thought that we should make personal photo books for orphans. But we could made only one book for one child - Sasha Ismailov, I wrote about him below. But I think it's a great idea! It's amazing present for child! not only for the orphans but for any child. We want to describe different parts of life of the child, may be use old photos from his childhood (if child has them), also include there photographes made by me and things this child is interested in. 
     You can see below a few pages from the photobook we made for Sasha. We put there his fairy tales (wrote on lessons of the Fairy tale therapy with Alexandra), Sasha's song ( we ask our friend wrote music for Sasha's poem), also we wrote inspiring  words especially for him. 

This book size - 20 sm x 20 sm, 38 pages. Name - "The beginning of a long journey".
Only problem is money. Such personal photo book is not chip. But we're looking for the donations and we plan to make such photo books for orphans in future.
   P.S.  Sasha Ismailov lives in Republic of Adugea (Russia) and this photo book are also there ))

Page with Sasha's fairy tale. We scanned paper with fairy tale and his picture.

Sasha, people from his orphanage and inspirational quote

Sasha learns in the Cossack Cadet School and we put there photos with cossacks
