Voyage dans le Monde

This week's theme of Famous Buildings was chosen by Rein, I've chosen the easy route of the
Eiffel Tower
using an old collage sheet that was already printed out.



 last week, our theme was Stargazing, here's my Stargazer, I like to think she is looking up to the sky to see where Lily's star (after she died, her pole dancing friends got together and named a star after her.  I was a little late to post this for last week's theme but I still wanted to show it :-)

lost in your eyes, i'm drowning in blue

 I decided to have a colour combo theme this week on Sunday Postcard Art. Firstly, I gathered a few different types of mediums to use in different turquoises and limes.
this is the postcard I created

thanks for looking

Originally Genuine

Amber is hosting this week's Sunday Postcard Art
with the theme of CHICKENS
Lily and Amber had a crazy private joke about chickens
which ended up part of the novel that Lily wrote before she died.

meanwhile.....

somewhere over the rainbow

the theme on Sunday Postcard Art this week was chosen by the glorious Cindy and is RAINBOWS
The idea behind this card was that it was raining rainbow hearts... but they've sort of got lost in the collage. I should have printed more out (I have to borrow a printer atm, so didn't want to return to print more!)

Cherish Family Forever

This week's Sunday Postcard Art is a fairly easy theme to join in with us. It's HEXAGONS

To begin my postcard, I sprayed through a hexagon stencil and then used the same stencil with some crackle paste (love that stuff!)

once that was dry I added some die cut hexagons and began painting. the shimmery paint is Prima Finnabair Metallic Paint. It's gorgeous paint.
I've used some butterfly wings and the 'dolls' from Tim Holtz as I still don't have a printer that works.

Curiosity

This week's sunday postcard art is NUMBERS.

I still don't have a printer and so I'm using the Tim Holtz 'dolls'.

You can't see a huge deal of numbers on my postcard, however the first layer was using crackle paste through a number stencil.
I don't know about you but when I glance at the photo I keep seeing a little white dog in the bottom left corner. weird lol

and so it goes....

I am still without a printer so I've had to resort to die cuts for my silhouette postcard for Sunday Postcard Art this week! Plus a few previously printed out images in my collage stash.

I'm not very good at using die cuts, they just seem to sit on the page but what can one do?
