Paper Quilt

I made this paper quilt by sewing strips made from my Gelli printed papers. I enlarged the image from a rubber stamp and glued it on. i then, sewed on a black paper border.

Hi, I wrote you on your FB community page...did you get it? I am taking a class from Christy Tomlinson title She Art 3. We are supposed to find a face and try to copy it.I just love your art and I chose your girl "One More Valentine" from 2/13/13. I would like your permission to post your girl titled "One More Valentine" with my piece on the She Art 3 FB group. It is a closed group for those taking the class, but I would like to have your okay before I do so. Will wait to hear from you. Thanks.
