Spirit Art

I´ve made two digital samples for you with Nancy Baumiller´s new Crowabout StudioB kit "Spirit Art Element Pack" - but as always, you can also print out the collage sheets that come with the kit and use them for your cut and paste artwork.

Eggs

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Eggs", I´ve made a digital card with images from several older Tumble Fish Studio kits (Dozens, Dreams - Yonder, Nitty Gritty 2, Etcetera, and Journaling Pieces 2).

Picnic

Again I didn´t have the appropriate stamps or collage elements for a cut and paste or mixed media card, so here´s my digital card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Picnic". I´ve used images from the Family Reunion Picnic kit from Mischief Circus by Cryztal Rain, Eena´s Creations, Itkupilli, Tumble Fish Studio and OWTF as well as the Vagabond Adventures kit from Krysty Scrap Designs.

Beach Life

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is "Beach Life" (and a seashell should be somewhere on your card), and even though I prefer to visit big cities when I´m on vacation, I love this theme, especially for postcards.
I´ve made two postcards this week, a stamped one and a digital one. My stamped card (above) follows the rule "Less is more", combining two self-dyed watercolour papers with rubber stamps from VivaLasVegaStamps and Crafty Individuals.
My digital card (below) shows how easy it is to combine the new Mischief Circus Relax Designer Mash-up with some older sea themed kits; I´ve used elements from Tumble Fish Studio, Marta van Eck, Eena´s Creations, Finecrafted Designs, and MizzD.
Where do you like to spend your summer vacation - at the sea, in the mountains, or in the big cities like me?

Fun in the Sun 1926

For the new Monthly Mischief Challenge at Mischief Circus I couldn´t resist using this beloved photo of my grandparents at the beach from 1926 again. All other elements are from the Designer Mash-up Collection Relax.

Monthly Mischief: Relax!


Mischief Circus came out with something new today, the Monthly Mischief - several designers made kits with the same theme (Relax) and the same colour scheme, and there´s also a kit that combines elements from several different designers. So you can mix and match all these kits and always get a nice result!
My two samples above were made with Marsha Jorgenson´s Tumble Fish kits Relax 1 and Relax 2 (the first one combines them whereas the second collage was made with kit 2 only).
Below you can find my samples for Nancy Baumiller´s kits Relax Elements and Relax Papers.
As always, all these kits also come with printable collage sheets, so you can use them for your cut and paste artwork as well.

Breakfast at Tiffany´s

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Audrey Hepburn", I would have prefered to stamp a card, if only I had the right stamps ... but as I haven´t, I switched to a digital design.
"Breakfast at Tiffany´s" from 1961 has always been one of my favourite Audrey films, and I´ve even read Truman Capote´s book when I was very young. Brainstorming the theme, I immediately had 5th Avenue with Tiffany´s on my mind, but also Holly Golightly searching for her unnamed cat ("played" by Orangey in the film) in the rain, having phone calls with that Mafia guy in Sing Sing, and I´ve been singing Moon River all the time while I´ve been making this card - what a song, no wonder it got the Oscar for the best song ... (if you need a reminder, here´s a short one).
(For my card, I´ve used elements from Courtney´s Designs, Rucola Designs, and Holliewood Studios.)

Snark Challenge

There´s a new challenge in the Mischief Circus forum for July which is called "Snark", and Hollie gave us the link to the great site "Wititudes" to find some really snarky quotes. I´ve had fun browsing them, and now it seems that I can´t stop making collages to illustrate them ...
My first attempt was "Alone Again" above, and the second one below is called "Safety". Both were made with elements from Miles Beyond the Moon and Mr Whiskers from Mischief Circus.
Won´t you come and play with us this month?
