Classic Tale of sweet Love

When I first saw this image I knew I wanted to use it along with the animals and the mushrooms (ok I know they are toadstools but I like the word mushroom)

So at first glance you think oh Sleeping Beauty but to me it is Snow White, who was always surrounded by the animals of the woods.

*namaste*

This week the theme on Sunday Postcard Art is Namaste. I first came across this word when I visited Nepal many ago. The airline staff said it to us as we boarded the plane and then when we left, along with a little bow.

It's such a beautiful word, and encompasses all feelings of peace, love and wisdom.


It would be lovely if you would join in with us

Voyage dans le Monde

This week's theme of Famous Buildings was chosen by Rein, I've chosen the easy route of the
Eiffel Tower
using an old collage sheet that was already printed out.



 last week, our theme was Stargazing, here's my Stargazer, I like to think she is looking up to the sky to see where Lily's star (after she died, her pole dancing friends got together and named a star after her.  I was a little late to post this for last week's theme but I still wanted to show it :-)

lost in your eyes, i'm drowning in blue

 I decided to have a colour combo theme this week on Sunday Postcard Art. Firstly, I gathered a few different types of mediums to use in different turquoises and limes.
this is the postcard I created

thanks for looking

meanwhile.....

somewhere over the rainbow

the theme on Sunday Postcard Art this week was chosen by the glorious Cindy and is RAINBOWS
The idea behind this card was that it was raining rainbow hearts... but they've sort of got lost in the collage. I should have printed more out (I have to borrow a printer atm, so didn't want to return to print more!)

Cherish Family Forever

This week's Sunday Postcard Art is a fairly easy theme to join in with us. It's HEXAGONS

To begin my postcard, I sprayed through a hexagon stencil and then used the same stencil with some crackle paste (love that stuff!)

once that was dry I added some die cut hexagons and began painting. the shimmery paint is Prima Finnabair Metallic Paint. It's gorgeous paint.
I've used some butterfly wings and the 'dolls' from Tim Holtz as I still don't have a printer that works.
