I almost think this is my first play with a canvas- as I normally
prefer fabric and papers! But it was fun trying!!

I used old tulle as the only fabric here, and the rest is papers!
stamps and dies!!

I love this image from JAN- and the die cut swirls-

Also used a Paper Whimsy stensil, with paste I coloured after dried! 
My photoes came awful out, bad light -apologice for that!!

So on to something better--this tag is a gift from my dear friend Bettina so beautiful made
with the lovely butterfly stensil, and the one flying on top!!

The sweet woman, also made me all these lovely roses in white, as It seems I have 
some difficulty rolling them myself, she dearly send me all those...
am I lucky or what !!!!!
  Have to experiment some more, myself  :-)

And the beautiful collage, so gorgeous with the stensiled leaves, and beautiful flowers.
The piece below is a gorgeous card she made me,too!!
I so love the embroideries-they are lovely, my dear- as are all these
beautiful gifts from you.
Thankyou from my heart my dear friend !


I also want to thank you and welcome all the new followers, you are so very 
appreciated , and I try finding each of you, for a visit on your blog!!
It can sometimes be difficult, when not left a link to your blogs-I`m sorry.

How is your weekend my dears? 
Maybe cold and wet, like mine ?
Well we do have sun in between- and that is such a wonderful happy feeling!

I wish you all happy hours, and to my American friends , a happy Memorial Day holiday!

Sending you love and hugs

Oh Dorthe, your collage is absolutely stunning! I love that beautiful image and the delicate blue and browny colouring. The stenciling is so beautifully done and I love those swirly die cuts around the image. The beautiful oak leaves finish it off just wonderfully!

Your gifts of course are very beautiful too, those rolled roses are amazing.

Our weather today was wonderful, clear blue sky and warm, so wonderful after the many days of grey skies we have had. I hope some of the sunshine will reach you soon too and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Your canvas is beautiful Dorthe...
you are such a versatile artist always creating such beautiful things!
You are also a magnet for lovely gifts from your talented friends...
those pretty roses will be lovely for you to create with...

We went last week from needing air conditioning to now needing to turn the heat back on with warmer weather promised again at the end of this week...
but I like it cool not hot and sticky and hope that the wind will not be blowing like crazy today so we can feel the sunshine and we have Monday as a holiday too...
thank you for your thoughtful wishes...
Hope you warm up and enjoy some sun too dear one!

Wonderful collage Dorthe! Love the image you chose and the swirls.

Take care, Maureen

Dear Dorthe,
your canvas is so amazing. It is a very new style of your work!
I love the woman picture (she is looking like a good friend) and your work with tulle. So wunderschön, liebe Freundin!
I started with canvas also many weeks ago and it was so special to give them a good look. It should be the Header of my blog, but it is not ready yet ... Your canvas is a really beautiful Inspiration, to work on :)
Here the weather is also wet and cold. Meanwhile I dislike it so much. But w e have to do the best of it. Is´nt it so?
Have a wonderful and creative week, dear friend. Ich umarme und küsse Dich herzlich, meine Liebe !
Deine Erika

I thank you again for your support for my Pinterest question. Unfortunately, it still has not worked. I'm probably too stupid :-)
