This week I've chosen the theme of HATS... I wanted to go vintage with this... as I have so many vintage images with ladies in hats, but searching through them all I came across this lovely image by Itkupilli of a pinup witch.
Love this image but whilst cutting out somehow her chin got lost in the snipping. lol some images are just so difficult to cut and maintain the nature of the whole thing
I was very tempted to touch up with a digital overlay but hey it's art so it's not meant to be perfect :-)
Thanks for looking and also for everyones continued support of
my new art journal.... I found this wonderful book in 'the works' here in England.... it's an interesting book but I didn't get it to read.... I want to use it as a new art journal. I don't have an old book journal so I love this. Only trouble is I keep reading the pages lol
The first page in the journal is in honour of my friend Astrid whose fave colour is purple (a personal challenge to me!) I've used Tim Holtz art dolls too. (I have so many of these images already in my collage image collection but it is handy to have them especially when you don't have any printer ink!!)
Our theme this week on Sunday Postcard Art is CARTE POSTALE so anything goes but your postcard must have the words somewhere on the postcard. Sounds easy? I'm always stumped when I have a free theme. Where does one start.... so I just carried on the postal theme and used this image by Lunagirl Moonbeams.
This week the theme on Sunday Postcard Art is Namaste. I first came across this word when I visited Nepal many ago. The airline staff said it to us as we boarded the plane and then when we left, along with a little bow.
It's such a beautiful word, and encompasses all feelings of peace, love and wisdom.
This week, the wonderful Deann is our hostess with the theme of BOOKS/READING
one of my fave ever pastimes .... I love love love to read!
lots of layers on my postcard, plus images from an Alice set from Hidden Vintage Studios.... which is no longer open on Mischief Circus but there's lots of other beautiful digital images available on there to use in your artwork
This week's theme of Famous Buildings was chosen by Rein, I've chosen the easy route of the
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 :-)
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!)
The word Hands just brings a song in my head that is from the Great Rock n Roll Swindle sung (?) by Malcolm McLaren ....
The title of my postcard this week, says Replenish the Soul and i'm sure we all need a little replenishing sometimes. Just lately I haven't been bothered making things, not a mojo thing but a really cannot be bothered at the moment. I hate feeling like this and when I start to make something I'm great. I get a flow going but I think it's because I have to get everything out. It would be nice to have a space I can go to and get arty.
well, today I thought it was time I got my finger out and made something!
This week's Sunday Postcard Art is hosted by my lovely Dutch friend Audrey and the theme is INSECTS
for my postcard I used a collage image from Angela Hoffman, I can't remember the name of the collage company or even if it's still going. Lots of lovely children with wings.
I used crackle paint from Decoart and a stamp set by Wendy Vechhi.
All colourings are using distress crayons and gelatos.
