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?

we are sailing

This week, my wonderful friend Sabine is hosting on Sunday Postcard Art
The theme is SailAway

Yesterday I went to print my images out but no my printer wasn't playing along.
I've tried to fix it to no avail.

so ... I wasn't joining in ... then I went onto Facebook and look what came up in my 'on this day' pictures! So apparently I made this for Hidden Vintage Studios 5 years ago!
so I know it's an oldie but at least I can join in!

you need hands .... to replenish the soul

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!

so here it is....




happy Sunday!

freaky thang

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.
