Lots of Colours for Dark Days

There´s hardly a single day right now without rain, storm and darkness. That´s why I´ve been especially fond of the opportunity to play with some very colourful stuff from Nancy Baumiller last weekend. She came out with her "Transformation Papers" today that you can see used in these two collages - for the first one, I´ve added elements from her older kits "Genesis" and "I Believe In", and for the second one pieces from "Tree Lovers and Things", "The Bird Whisperer", "Soul Whispers", "Relax" and "House Blessings".

Travel

Do you like to travel? Most people would say "YES!", I think, and so would I ... but in fact I even prefer to come back home ... Nevertheless it´s true that you learn a lot while traveling and that it really helps to understand not only the world but also yourself.
This postcard was made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Travel" using rubber stamps from Paper Artsy, Darkroom Door, Limited Edition, Lost Coas, Hampton Art and Art Impressions.

What is DADA?

I think it´s a great rule of thumb, that for Christmas, you should pick gifts that you´d like to receive yourself. I´ve found a lovely and rare Dada rubber stamp that I gave to my sister, but I´ve made a few prints on ATC backgrounds before I wrapped it ... and this month, I´ve been finally able to finish these ATCs, adding other rubber stamps (all from Heindesign), stencils, and images (some Tim Holtz people for the ATCs above and a tape transfer of an Yves Tanguy photo below.

If you want to know more about Dada, you can find info and more art on my blog here and here.

Finding my Way

New years often bring new challenges, and finding your way in a world that is different from the one you´ve known before is one of the biggest challenges life can give you. I´ve started a new job after 23 years in my old one, and so everything has changed for me. I don´t have much time left for my creative hobbies right now, but I hope that I´ll be able to post more often when things have settled a bit ...
So my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Add a Tag" really tells you something about my everyday life - wish me luck!
(I´ve used rubber stamps from Hero Art, VLVS, Carabelle, Joggles, and Nick Bantock here.)

Winterland

I´m wishing all my blog visitors a healthy and creative new year! Mischief Circus is going to kick off 2018 with a lovely Monthly Mischief collection, and I´ve made a few collages with Beth´s Songbirdy parts of it, called Winterland Papers, Winterland Elements, and Winter Beauties.
