Evolution

"You tell me that it´s evolution - Well, you know - We all want to change the World ..." (The Beatles, Revolution)

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, I´ve chosen the theme "Evolution". Please don´t be scared - you don´t have to tell us anything about Darwin etc. but can illustrate ANY form of evolution, any development like a chrysalis or whatever comes to your mind - feel free to surprise me!

For my card, I´ve used a quote from Henry Louis Mencken (1880-1956) and some cool stamps from Stempelbar.

It is all in your Hand

"Hands" is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and I´ve had a hard time choosing my stamps and stencils for this card because I own quite a collection of hand stamps :-))
I´ve picked a stencil and hand stamps from Visible Image in the end and a Klartext alphabet.

New Postage People ATCs


These are nine new Postage People ATCs fresh from my kitchen table - and if you´ve ever tried to make some of these, you know that it´s hard to stop! I have a few more "people" put together who just haven´t found their surroundings yet, but I´m quite happy with these so far. Some of them are for a swap in one of my ATC trading groups, and the rest will go to my trading album ... much needed because there´ll be Germany´s biggest stamping fair next week, and I don´t have enough ATCs in my album to trade with all my stamping friends I´ll meet there.
Can you help me to find out the best ATCs for the swap? Which are your favourites? Please tell me, and I´ll be happy to follow your tips.

Shenanigans!

Fun Fun Fun! That´s what the new Songbirdy kit "Shenanigans" is all about, and this is what you´ll have with it. I´ve made these two collages with it, "All Mad" and "Smile!".

Sovereignty - some more Zetti style collages

What I love about Nancy Baumiller´s image kits is that they come with beautiful printable collage sheets as well as png images. Recently, I´ve been in the mood to make some cut and paste collages again. With the new Sovereignty papers and images (available at MischiefCircus.com) I´ve made another cut and paste collaged page in my Moleskine journal (above) as well as a collaged envelope meant to hold a gift coupon - that´s why I´ve called it "With Love" (and because her chest is heart shaped, of course).

Turn the Music on

While playing with papers, inks and rubber stamps, I love to listen to my favourite music, and all those things together sometimes make me feel like I´m completely out of this world - that´s the best thing about making art, and such an art night can have the same effect as a short vacation.
My ATC illustrating that was made with rubber stamps from Stempelbar, AALL & Create and Klartext, and the tiny headphones brad was the perfect addition ...

Olympus

My digital "Olympus" collage was made with the new "Celestial" kits (papers, elements, and transparents) from Songbirdy at MischiefCircus.com.
