New Egg Heads

On Sunday, I´ve had fun again with our annual Easter Egg Painting event. Three of my best friends visited me, and we´ve been painting eggs from 3 p.m. until midnight. The little nest above shows the three egg heads that I´ve made for my growing egg head collection (see the egg heads from previous years below).

Fun with Mixed Parts!

There´s a new kit in the Mischief Circus shop today from Tumble Fish Circus, called "Mixed Parts". Both samples here have been made with this kit exclusively. Though these are digital, you can also use the printable collage sheets from the kit to have fun with cut and paste collages.

Animal People and More

"Animal People" is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge (chosen by my sister Sabine). When I made this sample for Nancy Baumiller´s wonderful new Crowabout StudioB kit "Steadfast", I immediately knew that I´d use it as my entry tonight. The words I´ve used here are some of my favourite verses from Virginia Woolf.
[P. S.: I´ve just found out that my bear card was picked as a GSO on March 28 - thanks!]

For those of you who prefer rubber stamped postcards, here´s another card using brand new Hipster stamps from Stempelbar and word strips from Tim Holtz:

To show the versatility of Nancy´s "Steadfast" kit, here´s another (not animal people themed) sample illustrating more favourite verses, this time by B. K. Cline.

Steampunk Man

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Vintage Gentlemen", I´ve used a cabinet card from the flea market and combined it with images from Lynne Anzelc, Finecrafted Designs, Holliewood Studios and Marta van Eck to make this guy a Steampunk Man.

Twilight Magic

Nancy from Crowabout StudioB has a new kit out now called "Twilight Magic", and her images often tempt me to go a bit snarky ... My samples are digital, but as always, this kit includes printable collage sheets that you can use for your cut and paste artwork.

Marsha from Tumble Fish Studio came out with her parts of the Monthly Mischief collection "Renew" today at My first two collages have been made exclusively with her first kit "Renew", and the third and forth collage have been made with "Renew 2". If you prefer cut and paste collages, you can use the printable collage sheets that come with both kits. Time for a little play with Spring colours!

One of a Kind

This week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge is Poetry, and I`ve had a hard time to decide which poem I wanted to use for my card. Finally I went with some verses from Anne Sexton, illustrated with images from Miles Beyond the Moon.

Welcome, Songbirdy!

Today´s the day for the wonderful Beth Todd who opened her Songbirdy shop at Mischief Circus!
I´ve had so much fun playing with her first kits, they are very inspiring and easy to work with. My first three collages here have been made with "Attitude", a very versatile image collection as you can see when you look at "My Private Room" above, "Party Chat" below, and the third one called "London Nights".

My next two collages "Rest" and "The Look" have been made with Beth´s Songbirdy kit "Orientalism" only, the other two collages called "Bazaar" and "The Lost Snakes" combine that kit with the add-on kit "Orientalism The Men". 

But wait, there´s more! Beth even has a free kit for you called "Debut", so have a look at her shop and grab it, and you´ll get an impression of how beautiful the new Songbirdy kits are. My collage below has been made with that free kit only.
Can´t wait for the next Songbirdy kits!
