Scrappy Valentine Gals


Here it is approaching again – Valentine’s Day. Made these Scrappy Valentine Gals – Flo, Gretchen and Suzi – for the new WS Valentine challenge. I’m busy “fabric”ing and somehow these hearty gals just evolved. I really enjoyed making them!! Face stamp from Invoke Arts and arms, legs from Zettiology. Believe it or not, but I only have ONE fabric scrap bag. But then again my fabric looks holey like this, carefully cutting everything out, so not much leftovers. Thanks for a real fun challenge Tina. I’ll also be teaching a Scrappy Gal workshop at southern Germany’s stamp convention “Stempelmesse Süd” on 5/6 April for the Stempeloase booth. May these gals be spreading much luv this week!!

Und schon wieder rückt er näher – der Valentinstag. Hab diese Scrappy Valentine Gals – Flo, Gretchen und Suzi – für die neue MS Valentins-Herausforderung gemacht. Bin ja fleißig am Stoffeln, und so sind diese herzigen Mädels irgendwie entstanden. Es hat wirklich Spass gemacht!! Gesichtstempel von Invoke Arts und Arme, Beine von Zettiology. Ob Du es glaubst oder nicht, ich hab nur diese EINE Stoffrestetüte. Kein Wunder, denn so durchlöchert sehen viele meiner Stoffstücke aus, da gibt’s wenig Reste. Danke für eine wirklich tolle Herausforderung Tina! Ich werde auch einen Scrappy Gal Workshop bei der Stempelmesse Süd am 5./6. April am Stempeloase-Stand geben. Mögen die Mädels viel herzige Stimmung diese Woche verbreiten!!


I think Cloth, Paper, Scissors (issue 16) has the coolest Valentine cover this year, don’t you think? I just heART Karen Michel‘s art. Lesley Riley did an interview with her and you can get a wonderful glimpse into Karen’s heart and art. I’ve taken classes with both of them – wonderful women and wonderful artists. Lesley works wonders with fabric. Any time again! *** Die aktuelle Cloth, Paper, Scissors (Ausgabe 16) has the coolest Valentine cover this year, findest Du nicht auch? Ich mag total Karen Michel‘s Kunst. Lesley Riley hat sie interviewt und Du erhälst wunderbare Einblicke in Karen’s Herz und Kunst. Hatte schon das Glück, an Workshops von beiden teilzunemen – wunderbare Frauen und wunderbare Künstler. Lesley zaubert Herrliches aus Stoff. Jederzeit wieder!
