Just The Two Of Us

Hi Everyone!
Thanks for stopping by to visit today. :-) I have a card for you using another image by Whimsy And Stars.
It's called "Dancing Love". You can find it here.
I decided to do a "freeform patchwork" design which means just like it sounds. I just lay the paper down, mark and cut it in random designs. If you haven't tried it you need to, it feels liberating somehow. As long as you pick out coordinating papers it can't fail to come out good and yet its always a surprise. Shakes things up a bit.


My recipe:
Colors: Prismacolors on Kraft
Papers: from stash, scraps
Tickets: Whimsy Stamps
Card Candy: from stash

I would like to play along with:

Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet -  - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Pink Elephant - Stitching
Creative Inspirations Paint - Orange and Pink
Paper Sundaes -- Just Saying Hi
Crafty Emma - Mix and Match
Inspire Me Fridays - always anything goes

Thanks so much everyone for your encouraging comments. I know how busy we all are and its sometimes difficult to get around all the blogs we like to support, so I really appreciate the time it takes to stop and say hi. You guys are the best!
I'll see you around Blogland!

So cute! Love how paper matches perfectly! Is this the one I'm not supposed to see? If it is I didn't look. If it is not, it is fabulous! Love the patchwork. If I can get my machine to work right I may have a go at this... Not that I looked! LOL!

Love the freeform patchwork Dorcas! Super cute image and fab coloring as always!

Kim Duran said...

The patchwork looks amazing! It seems like it might be hard to do. The cutting at random seems like something I could do, but the putting together part...maybe not! : )

Well worth all the time and thought you put into this lovely piece! Thanks for sharing your creation with us at The Kraft Journal!

Hello Dorcas,
Susan from NZ here.
Once again I am captured by your card on MIM.
Crazy Patchwork; how I used to love making these types of quilts, those days have passed now sadly....but card-making is just as much fun.
Your creation brought back many wonderful memories for me, so thanks for that it is a beautiful card.
