This book is stunning! Featuring beautiful, full color, replications of some of Yulia’s significant pieces, this book is a visual delight. Unlike other art books that feature a collection of images with brief descriptions, Painting with Paper is an open invitation to readers to try their hand at quilling and paper art. Yulia provides a deep dive into her thought process behind each piece as well as helpful tips, tricks, and things to keep in mind when working with paper or creative projects in general. The range of information is vast including difficult to find colors, color relationships and light refraction, as well as how to put your paper art in the best light. The writing in this book is casual and approachable. It reads as though you’ve sat down with the author over a cup of tea as she shares her hard earned insites into the world of paper art. A must have if you love color, paper, or anything in between!
This is not a how-to book! That said, anyone who knows how to quill (or maybe not!) will absolutely find inspiration here. I’m just a beginner in this art form, and it is definitely my go-to book. A feast for the eyes, a colorful and beautifully rendered art book, it is purely a pleasure to page through. I had purchased several quilling books to learn the techniques of this craft, and was happy enough, but this really upped my game! Yulia uses larger paper (about 13mm I believe), and this appealed to me especially when I saw what she has accomplished. Wow – just…Wow! I definitely recommend this gorgeous book and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
This is a gorgeous book and I love to give my creative juices a boost by reading a few pages here and there. Unfortunately, I was hoping it was more of a paper collage reference, which is my fault as I didn’t fully think about the second part of the book’s title…Paper on the Edge. So, it’s not something I will probably include in my personal art portfolio of projects…but, again…the book is wonderfully artful and stimulates my creative juices.
This book is filled with beautiful colorful artistic expressions and techniques created by using paper. I treasure this book and the artist has inspired me to create my own one-of-a-kind masterpieces as she has! This book will challenge everyone who purchases any book from this author.
I loved how she showed her final pieces but also showed the work done to build them up! Bravo on an exciting job well done!
This is beautifully written and the pictures are gorgeous. Yulia goes into depth about her process without giving directions, but her creativity is endless and it’s a great read to see into her thought process.
This book has lots of pictures and great ideas. There is also information that is very helpful for quelling.
I love the artists work. It’s been fun to read more about her process and absorb all the goodness she creates in paper. This is both a great piece of art and some instruction on how to quill.
Weather you do the projects or just admire those shown in the book this is fantastic reading.
This is a beautiful book. Inspires me to keep quilling!
