Pink Artist Squares

I finally finished my Pink Artist Squares!! For someone who normally doesn't do sewing or fabric this was a challenge. If your not familiar with the Pink Artist Project click this button

Anyway here are my squares for this project!! I scanned some work and then printed it out and made patches out of it. Then I stitched on a back and some beads and voila!! These squares are 2x2.

You make my day award!!

Lori from "Altered Art Expressions" and a good artist friend of mine awarded me with the "You Make My Day Award! The rules for the “You Make My Day” award are to re-present it to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blog land. Let them know through email or by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times, and if you do, consider yourself really, really loved. So to pass it on and keep the love going ~ here are 10 of the 100's of blogs that keep me inspired and bring a smile to my face. Check them out when you have a few minutes... perhaps there are some new friends to be made!

Who says Valentines have to be red and pink?

I made some more Valentines! I wanted to mix things up a bit and try something new. Who wrote the book about Valentines being red or pink? So instead of those colors I chose something a bit different. Blue and purple! How cool is that? Check out my new non red Valentines!!

"Happy enchanting Valentines Day" has an image from inka stamps.

My little boy "Although our love is over" uses an image from Altered Pages.

So heres my challenge to you!! Lets see you make some Valentines without using the traditional colors. I think using different colors makes it more handmade or more thoughtful IMO of course. Seems to be more creative rather then the same ol same ol...

Comments always welcome!!
