Lemons

 

Lemons/Oranges is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. I wanted to illustrate the freshness and "splash" of those fruits, so I used watercolours and stamps from Makistamps.

Dance

 

You must dance Life - that´s a motto I must remind myself of daily as I´m someone who doesn´t take things easy. No matter how old you are, there are always things left to work on.

This card is my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dance".

Frida

 
Last weekend, I haven´t done anything creative, and though I´ve felt recovered the next day, I also felt that something was missing. So this weekend, I did some stamping again and already feel better! 
Here are my Frida Kahlo ATCs for a swap in a German ATC group.

How about you? Do you feel the need to create and miss it if you´ve been lazy for a while, or is it enough to make some art from time to time?

David Bowie

 
I´ve made these ATCs for a David Bowie themed swap. 

The first one is a collage of Bowie postage stamps, covered with gesso and overstamped.

The next two ATCs illustrate "Space Oddity", Bowie´s famous song from 1972. 

And then there´s that great collaboration with Pat Metheny from 1985, a song I really love, from the soundtrack of "The Falcon and the Snowman". 

I´ve had more ideas on my list for ATCs illustrating "Black Star", "Let´s Dance" and "China Girl", but as we didn´t have enough participants for this swap, I stopped here ...

You are my Sunshine

Your are my Sunshine is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge.

May I say that I don´t like this song at all? It´s a classic from 1939 (recorded then by the Pine Ridge Boys, but written in 1937), and there are about 350 cover versions, for example by Doris Day, Bing Crosby and Johnny Cash, but I really don´t like it ... 

I don´t like its musical simplicity, the simple lyrics and the fact that there´s nobody I could sing it for. 

If you´re alone, you have to find other things or creatures that enlighten you and are your sunshine - in my case, flowers and especially birds make me happy every day. How about you? Do you have someone or something who or what makes you happy?

Blackbird

 

I´m hosting the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week, and I´ve chosen "Song Lyrics" as this week´s theme as I always feel inspired by words and lyrics, and some song lyrics even accompany your whole life.

Blackbird is such a timeless song, and it´s one that can be illustrated in so many ways. For my sample card, I´ve used rubber stamps from Green Pepper Press (Michelle Ward) and York´s Little Art Studio (Wendy York).

Hope you´ll feel inspired to show us your interpretation of a favourite song!
