Small World of Inchies/Twinchies

The theme at SWIT is the color Blue.

I made two inchies, and though the second one has a lot of color in it the base for it is blue.

With the first one I wanted to add the wording but I didn't like anything I tried. I finally added 'flags' to the piece.

Sunday Postcard Art

The theme at SPA is Winter Mystical.

I had a lot of fun with this piece. The background (left hand side) is made using Marvy Metallics. The darker blue paper is handmade. The image is by artist Edmund Dulac. I hand wrote the wording on vellum.

TMTA - Auto

This week's theme at TMTA is Auto.

The American Dream ATC is a picture of my dad with his caddy in the 1950's. I never did learn how he came by the car, or whatever happened to it, but understand that it was his pride and joy.

The other two are photos I took of vintage vehicles, manipulated in PhotoShop (click on image to enlarge).

Lots to Do Challenge - Newspaper

The challenge at Lots To Do is to use newspaper in the work. I made a skinny using actual newspaper. I know that it's not archivally safe, and I know the newspaper will fade eventually, but sometimes it's nice to play with materials regardless.

The image is from The Vintage Workshop.
