Sunday Postcard Art

The theme at Sunday Postcard Art is Africa.

Of course my first vision was of elephants, zebra, big cats.....but even as I tried to take the piece that way my mind kept thinking about the movie 'Out of Africa'. The piece weaved its way into being more about a woman's life in a far away land.

I hand wrote the passage using a calligraphy pen/nib.


I came upon this ceramic tile at a local reuse center. I love the color, the style and the texture of it.

Make a Moo or Two

The challenge at MMT - To use a puzzle piece.

I did use a puzzle piece on the second moo, but on the first, I turned the moo into a three piece puzzle (cut freehand). The photo shows it together, and apart.

Theme Thursday - Flowers

I made two ATC's. Both are hand stamped and colored with watercolor crayons. The butterfly is a sticker. The text on the second one is hand written.

See other great artwork at Theme Thursday.

Pretty baubles....

These beads were found at two different locations over the past few days. I actually got the beads at a bead store down at the coast, and the agate pieces from a local bead store (Bead Bullies). Just what I need....more beads. lol

An ATC with attitude....

The challenge at TMTA this week is to use a line from a favorite song, book or poem. I have quite a few favorite lines, but I chose to have fun with this one and use a line from a Bon Jovi song (the smirk face is from the album cover).

Lots to Do Challenge - Gesso

This ATC was made using watercolor paper that was treated with two coats of gesso. After the gesso was dry I applied acrylic paints. I mixed gesso with red paint to stamp the leaves and dots, edging the card with the same color. I hand wrote the word Dream using paint and a brush. The butterfly is metal, colored with alcohol inks.

Sunday Photo

One of several little guys we came upon during our day trip to the coast last Wednesday.....

I wasn't sure he'd let me get too close, but then it became obvious that he wasn't in the least bit afraid.
