Freedom

I´ve always loved these words by Jean-Paul Sartre, and when I decided to use the wolf and the bird from Nancy Baumiller´s new Crowabout StudioB kits "Evolving" images and papers, they came to my mind immediately. Fly away, little yellow bird!

Dogs

No, I´ve never had a dog or a cat, just canaries when I was very young ... But haven´t you ever thought about what our pets think about this world and mankind? I´ve had much fun watching the first "Pets" movie and am looking forward to the second one - who knows if the moths and spiders in my apartment celebrate a heavy metal party when I´m off to work?!
The quote I´ve used for my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dogs" is from Mme de Stael (born in the 18th century, and I fear that she wouldn´t have changed her mind if she lived nowadays).

Dragonfly

Dragonflies are very elegant and lightweight animals, and I tried to keep that in mind when I made my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dragonflies".

Thingymabob

 I´ve been really happy when my friend Beth told me that her new digital image kit would be colourful, and when I saw it I immediately fell in love with the funny and quirky images of "Thingymabob". What came out first when I worked with it wasn´t so funny (see my collage "Another Toy" above) but that´s just another quality of this kit. With my second collage "Time for a Rest" below I came back to a funnier style, playing with size, exaggeration and artificial style.

Follow Your Inner Compass

My sister Sabine is hosting this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and she has chosen the theme "Travel/Maps". My 4 x 6 postcard was made using rubber stamps from Art Specially and Unity Stamps.

Chaos

Have you ever asked a book lover for her/his favourite quote? Well, Mandy from Sunday Postcard Art Challenge blog and her guest host Deann did it this week ... and of course I couldn´t decide which quote to use, so I ended using a line from the wonderful Kinks song "Lola" (published in 1973, an important year in my own life by the way). I´ve used rubber stamps from The Stamping Cottage, Paperbag Studios, Silvercrow and Visible Image for my card, and as this is one of my favourite themes, I can´t wait to see your own creation using your personal favourite quote! (And now I should spend some time reading more of Ray Davies´ great lyrics ...)

Coins and Seaside


I´ve had a week off work recently and have made my first ATC coins (not my favourite format) for a swap and some seaside themed ATCs just for fun.
