Quilling  a way of , rolling, shaping, looping paper but this time into anatomical marvels. Using a method of craft that we all may remember as a child in grade school (pre-school) but creating "pretty" flowers, and grasses. It's creepy and its amazing as Lisa is known to use real life photographs to study from. The intricacies of the human body's parts must be ingrained into her minds eye, size, color, tissue texture, thickness. Defiantly a style of craft that isn't to be taken lightly, the old "crafty crafts" has a dark side.
