another one... you know what...


are you already bored about these paper guys? :)
I´m so sorry, but I can´t help. This cutting and gluing is still so much fun. Yesterday I recieved my copy of Keri Smith´s new book "How to be an explorer of the world" . Maybe her book inspired me to add some information about the used papers to the picture. I thought it would be nice giving the little paper pieces their identity back. For reading please check out the large version by clicking on the pic.

Last weekend I found some nice vintage bed linen at the flea market, they are waiting to be cutted.
Cornelia has already posted some pictures of our meeting on her blog. Mine are coming soon

Thank you Katrien and Pikaland for writing about us today!

I think you get the idea now, but NO, we won't get bored of your Vikings! Their "history" is fun.

I LOVE the "history of" details... it makes me want to hear the story that weaves all of those interesting place and things together... hummmm.... Australia, Thailand, Amsterdam... Ikea... could be fun! I see a book in your future. :)

Visiting your blog is like opening a present... always a treat and full of surprises. Thanks for doing what you do and sharing it with the world.

All your work is fantastic but I do love the paper ones and that you share where you reclaimed the paper from! Thanks for sharing...

I think the Vikings are cute! They look like they crawled right out of a storybook. Their faces have such interesting expressions.

The fabby is so bold and bright!

Beautiful fabric!! Love the pic of it stacked like that. Thanks for pointing out where the paper is from. That is interesting, I can see how it could be fun and addicting. You are talented.

It's me! said...

I love your vikings! It's so easy to lose yourself in cutting and pasting, surrounded by mounds of recycled goodies.

Ich heute nochmal.
Ist doch gut, dass du die Herkunft der einzelnen Papiere notierst. Das mache ich bei meinen fabric.pages auch. Für mich liegt der Reiz des Gestaltens Sachen von überall her zusammenzutragen und zu benutzen.

Eine Frage: Womit klebst du? In 2008 habe ich angefangen, mehr zu kleben, vor allem in meine Journals. Bin aber mit noch nichts so richtig zufrieden und hätte gerne einen Tipp von einem Profi.

Kompliment noch für deinen internationalen Erfolg.
