Any Road

Sometimes some images speak to you, and if it´s a good day, you´re able to express with them what´s currently on your mind.
(all images used here are from Miles Beyond the Moon kit "Go Ask Alice")

Zeppelin

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge that I´m guest hosting, I´ve chosen "Zeppelin" as a theme. Graf Ferdinand von Zeppelin died 100 years ago, in March 1917. He invented those "flying cigars" that were named after him and that have been used between peace and war, transporting mail as well as people. And there´s an old song by Otto Reutter from 1909 documented here - isn´t it weird? And did you know that my favourite band is Led Zeppelin?

I´ve made two samples for you: The one above was made using a background made with Distress Oxide stamp pads, images from a magazine about postage stamps, a real postage stamp, and rubber stamps from Bo Bunny, Marianne Designs, Makistamps, Oxford Impressions, and See D´s.

My digital card below was made with images from Angie Young, Crafty Button Designs, Manuela Zimmermann, Holliewood Studios, Itkupilli, Magical Reality, and Finecrafted Designs.

If you check your images, I´m sure you´ll find some great ones, too, and I hope you´ll be inspired to play with that theme this week!

Soul Garden

Nancy came out with her two Soul Garden kits (1 and 2) today, and for my samples, I´ve combined the two kits. As always, they come with printable collage sheets, so you can also use them for your physical collages.

I´ve made this Hitchcock card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed Numbers, using stamps from Carmen´s Veranda, Limited Edition, Kaisercraft, and Marianne Design.

Positive Changes

I´ve really loved playing with Nancy Baumiller´s new Crowabout StudioB kit "Positive Changes" - aren´t those bird heads just wonderful? As always, the kit comes with printable collage sheets, so you can use it for all your digital and physical collages.

Silhouettes

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Silhouettes", I didn´t have any appropriate stamps, so I´ve used some favourite images from (sadly retired) Hidden Vintage Studios to make this card; the Emerson word art is from Tina Chambers.

Good Vibes


There´s a new "Collect Your Own Collab" collection out at MischiefCircus.com, themed "Good Vibes". All collab kits have vibrant colours and 70´s inpired images, but there´s a wide range of interpretations of the theme.
Nancy Baumiller´s Crowabout StudioB kit Good Vibes is mainly Yoga inpired, but my two samples above may show that you don´t need to make Yoga themed collages with it.

And Marsha Jorgensen´s Tumble Fish Studio kit Good Vibes is more of a Bohemian kit combined with lovely modern word art and an additional Good Vibes Doodles kit used in both of my samples below.

For this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Sail Away" I´ve made a digital card using some older kits from Hidden Vintage Studios (sadly retired), Tumble Fish Studio, and Eena´s Creations, plus additional elements from Manuela Zimmermann and Vinnie Pearce.

Circumstance

Since Beth Todd had released her "Pomp" kit in her Songbirdy shop at MischiefCircus.com recently, you´ve probably waiting for "Circumstance", and here it is! Again it has those lovely rich colours that go together so well - I love it, so I´ve made three samples for you: Above is "Before the Concert", the second one is called "Invitation", and my third piece is "The Secret Garden".
