Cats (or Dogs?)

No, I don´t have a cat - the only pets I´ve ever had were canaries when I was a child. Nowadays I feel lucky when a couple accepts the bird house on my balcony ... But I also like dogs and cats (though I´m allergic). I´ve often thought about the way they see us humans and the world and what´s going on in their brains. Are you a cat person or do you prefer dogs, and why?
I´ve made this card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Cats" - maybe you´d like to join the challenge!?

New ATCs

As I´ve been on vacation for more than one week, I´ve had some time to play with some of my favourite rubber stamps, so I´ve made a few ATCs for my trading album.

Dolls

I never liked dolls, not even as a child, but I´ve always liked paper dolls. Here´s my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Dolls".

Dystopia

Do you know what a dystopia is? It´s the opposite of the term utopia (first used by Thomas More in the 16th century) and means an undesirable society - think of 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and so on, there are so many great examples in literature.
For me as someone who loves literature and meaningful art, the new "Dystopia" kits from Songbirdy and Holliewood Studios at MischiefCircus.com came in like a bomb that made ideas explode in my head, and I just couldn´t stop creating.
Usually there aren´t many political artworks in the digital art community, and most sites and groups avoid political or religious themes. I´ve often missed that kind of art in the midst of all these pieces of beauty and affirmation because I´m someone who likes to discuss things rather than brushing them under the carpet ... so these Dystopia kits came in handy for me and are my new favourites!
If these collages aren´t your cup of tea, just wait a bit and there´ll be some colourful beauties soon, but for now I´m happy to show some darker pieces here.

Self Care

My friend Nancy from Crowabout StudioB at MischiefCircus came out with some beautiful new backgrounds today called "Blissful Play Paper Pack". I´ve used one of it for this collage and added elements from other kits of Nancy (New Day, Funky Couture, Being & Becoming and Where the Light is).

It´s been a while ...

I haven´t made a lot of ATCs lately, but when I saw the theme "Postage People" in one of my groups, how could I resist? So I sat down for an afternoon of playing with my postage as well as rubber stamps, some gelli plate backgrounds, washi tapes and quote stickers, and here´s my result.

This´n´That

It´s time for a new collection of coordinated kits called Monthly Mischief over at MischiefCircus.com. I´ve been playing with Songbirdy´s two kits This´n´That Papers and Elements only for these two collages, and I think you can see how much fun I´ve had making them ...
