Anyone interested in literature should have read Franz Kafka´s "Metamorphosis" ("Die Verwandlung" in the German original) from 1912, edited in 1915. And it really pays to read it again and again because you always discover something new that you haven´t noticed earlier. Though Kafka doesn´t mention a beetle as the result of Gregor Samsa´s metamorphosis, most of us read this between the lines. 

This is the reason why I´ve chosen Kafka´s story for my card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge themed "Beetles".

No Regrets

When I first read this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge "Femme Fatale", I thought that I´d skip the challenge this week. But when I started thinking about the theme, I began to like it: 

Usually we associate Femme Fatale with a fin de siècle woman that is manipulating and seductive - characteristics that I hate from the bottom of my heart attributed to women who influenced famous men.
But of course those women that were labeled with this term have lived in times when women had no choice when they wanted to live their own life - they could only live it as an attribute to a man´s life. The term Femme Fatale is one that tells us of a male perspective - an adventurous woman is described as one that causes the (bad) fate of a man. We should change our perspective and see the woman who just wants to live her own life as a free and independent human being.

Longing for the Sea

Lighthouses is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge, and here´s the card I´ve stamped for it. This lady is dreaming of the sea, beaches and faraway countries, there´s something romantic about the sea.

Lemons/Oranges is this week´s theme for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. I wanted to illustrate the freshness and "splash" of those fruits, so I used watercolours and stamps from Makistamps.
