Skinny Book - L is for Lascivious

This is my letter L page for our Paper Traders Skinny Alphabet Book project. My book´s theme is "In the Mood", and this time our challenge was to use gold leaf on the page. So the small stamped circles in the background are made with real gold leaf.


In my imagination the little boy gets coloured when he starts to sing ...

I let my eyes wander ...

... look where they´re going.

Spring is in the air

... so here´s another nesting bird.


Two ATCs for Nancy.


An ATC for a Letter C swap.

Journal "Superheroes"

My entry for Fred´s RR journal "Superheroes" has been a hard one ... First I had no idea what to do, but then it dawned to me that my personal superheroes have always been writers and painters. So I proudly present SpiderGoethe, BatRilke, and SuperBrecht with a quote from Solomon Eagle (German readers might know it from the novel "Tintenherz"). OMG, this challenge was really out of my box!

Children themed ATCs do not necessarily have to be cute - this second one for Gaby ´surely isn´t.

Doesn´t she look happy?

Bird People

Two of my groups have ATC swaps themed "Bird People" going on at the moment. Not sure if I´ll send these and where, but I´ve had fun making them tonight. My favourites are the two cards above; believe me I´m still whistling Carly Simon´s song ... I got the wonderful book page about duck migration from Wendy, thank you so much!
