Coffee First


I´m a night owl that has to get up at 5.30 in the morning, so a small cup of coffee is what really helps to get me started ... though it doesn´t always take that grumpy look from my face.
I´m happy that my parents understood and let me stay up really late when I was a teenager and didn´t worry when I made my homework for school late in the evening. My most creative time is before midnight, and that didn´t change since I was young (it´s 2 a.m. when I post this!).

How about you? Are you an early bird or a night owl? And what´s the impact for your everyday life?

My card was made for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Coffees Stains", and as the background was stamped with real espresso and an espresso cup, I´ve also used stamps from AALL & Create and Altenew here.

Life is going on, and maybe music can help you to deal with its daily challenges - at least I hope so!

This is my entry for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed Music hosted by my sister Sabine. Hope you´ll play with us and let us know about your thoughts!

New Postage People


I´m sorry that I haven´t been in the mood to create lately, but when I saw Postage People as a swap theme in one of my ATC groups, I just had to make something, and here´s the result.

The Raven´s Song

I´ve just started my first online class at Ivy Newport´s online class portal, and of course it had to be "The Raven´s Song" by Natalie Eslick. These are my very first charcoal sketches, and I´m already amazed of how many shapes and hues can be found in an almost black in black image ... soooo much to learn, but it´s great fun!

January Blues


January Blues is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and I wanted to combine the feeling of being lost in a cold and grey month with actual tones of blue colour. So I started with a collage of blue papers and tapes and used blue paints and inks on it, then stamped and coloured upon it. (Stamps are from Dina Wakley, Badass Stamp Studio and Red Lead.)
