Art

I´m a bit late for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, but it´s still Sunday ... so here´s my card for this week´s theme "Art". I´ve bought that quote stamp just recently and still had it on my kitchen table, and I thought it was just perfect for this challenge. (And of course it´s the exact expression of what I think about art - it´s absolutely necessary in today´s life!)

The Best of Summer

How is your summer? Here it is still hot, too hot to work - I can´t wait to see a bit of rain and to feel the need to wear trousers again ... But usually I really like summer, the warm colours, the warmth (not heat!), the life outside ... With the beginning of the new month, Mischief Circus came out with a new Monthly Mischief collection, and I´ve used only Songbirdy´s part of it to make these two digital collages called "A Dream" and "Done". Have a look at Beth´s Monthly Mischief August papers, elements and beauties and get some inspiration for your summer themed artwork.

Some like it hot ...

This summer is hot hot hot, and most of us (at least those who have to go to work every day) can´t wait for a few colder days, some rain, and cool nights that allow us to sleep again.
But to make the best of these temperatures, you could have a look at the new Songbirdy kits called Summer and Summer Characters that I´ve used to make these two collages. They reminded me of the good things usually connoted to Summer: Bold colours, refreshing water, bathing beauties etc.

Stripey Legs

From time to time, I´m hosting the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and for this week, I´ve picked "Stripey Legs" as my theme as I love a Zetti look. For my sample, I started with some Zetti legs and ended up with two close friends who like each other so much that they try to get as close as possible ... I can´t wait to see your version of stripey legs, so I hope you´ll join this challenge!

Do You Believe in Fairies?

"I believe in everything until it´s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it´s in your mind. Who´s to say that dreams and nightmares aren´t as real as the here and now?" - John Lennon

Though I´m a rational person, Lennon´s words resonate with me, and I like the idea that there´s just something in the air that we can´t explain completely ...

This postcard was made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Fairies", using elements from Tumble Fish Studio (sadly retired), Crowabout StudioB and my own background scans.

Themed Postcards


Recently I´ve been on vacation for almost two weeks, and I´ve had some more time for my favourite pastime then of course ... so here are three postcards I´ve made for some special occasions.
The first two pics above show my retirement card for a dear friend in the U. S. - hope it has found its way to her in the meantime!
The second card above was made for a "Postal" themed challenge organized by a German rubber stamp company. And the last one below went to the same company for their challenge themed "Shopping". Of course I´ve also decorated the back (addressed) sides of these cards.

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!?
