International Artists


Hi Everyone~

I would like to introduce you to 2 wonderful
international artists~

The first is Marilia and her work in the
area of scrapbooking is phenomenal...


She brings her craft to a whole new level~


as each piece is more intricate than the
next. Marilia is from Brazil and as a
visit to her blog is only "a click away,"
I hope you will go visit her to see
all that she creates.


Valerie is from Germany and
her blog, Bastelmania is filled
with beautiful artistic
treasures as she works in several


These are but a few examples of her
intricate and lavish work~

Just look at all the detail~

Her layers and textures are so diverse,
as are her color schemes and types of
art she produces.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the work
of these friends and I want to wish you
ALL a creative week!!!
