Tropical Summer

No, I´ve never been on a tropical island, and when I´m going on vacation (not very often), I prefer big cities with lots of museums and sightseeing, or great landscapes with medium temperatures ... but as this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Tropical Summer", I had to dive into my tropically themed or coloured stuff, and this is the result.

Sketchbook

If you´re like me, you´ve tried to use a sketchbook on a regular basis again and again - and never have been successful with this plan. Well, at least I´ve put together my dream sketchbook in this digital version ... using elements from G&T, Holliewood Studios, Tumble Fish Studio, Rucola Designs and Gimptatic Scraps.

Go Somewhere

Summer is the season for traveling, and as this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme is "Famous Buildings", I´ve chosen a mixture of very famous buildings in Paris, Berlin, London, and Athens for my digital postcard this week.

Isn´t it a Dream?

Beth Todd has come out with wonderful Songbirdy kits for this month´s Monthly Mischief themed "Dream" over at MischiefCircus.com! I´ve made three digital collages with her elements and papers kits, "A Dream" above, "Night Rest" below, and the third one featuring words by Dejan Stojanovic is called "Shore and Ocean". Hope you´ll like them and feel inspired to make your own dreamy art.

Stargazing

"Stargazing" is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and though you can define a stargazer as an astrologer, too, my stargazing lady is just watching the sky ... I´ve used images from Courtney´s Designs, Dutch Dream, Itkupilli and Tumble Fish Studio for my digital collage.

Ocean Dream - Turquoise and Lime

Usually I´m not a big fan of colour themes and challenges, but this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge theme "Turquoise and Lime" covers two of my favourite colours that are also perfect for any summer art, so I started thinking ...
I´ve found a few of my own papers made using stencils and stamps and several inks and paints in my stash. I´ve scanned those at 300 dpi to use them as a personal base for any digital projects, and for this postcard they really came in handy! I layered and blended them, then added elements from Jen Maddocks, Lorie Davison, Courtney´s Designs, et designs, Marta van Eck and Nicole Young, and voilà: Here´s my Ocean Dream.

Nevermore

Here´s the result of a little playing with Foxeysquirrel digital image kits - Poe and The Raven are favourite themes of mine, so everything came together quite easily.
