Children Postcard

 The heat here is suffocating me today, so I went down in to my garage where it was nice and cool and created a postcard.

I've been absent from Sunday Postcard Art for several weeks now, my mojo has been on a "go slow"

The theme this week is Children and was chosen by Amy, do pop over and have a look at her fabulous sample.

I cut my postcard from a mood board I made sometime ago, I gessoed over it and then covered it with a lovely "Birdhouse" napkin. 

The child images are by Tim Holtz, at first I just added the 2 girls, but then decided to add the lad, who looks super cool leaning on the fence around the birdhouse.

I added the sentiment and I was ready to go and take a photo.

Do pop over and join us, your postcard must be 4"x6"...check out the entries too, some awesome creations there.

Music/Musical Tag

 As a Team Designer over at Tag Tuesday it was my turn to chose the theme, so I have chosen Music/Musical, so anything from songs to instruments, Operas and Concerts too.

I think Music plays an important part in our lives, most of us have that one favorite tune that evokes memories. Music cheers you up, makes you want to sing along or dance, you can even exercise to music, so I do hope you will find this theme one that you can join in with.

My tags were created using a selection of free stamps that have been lurking in my craft room for a while, so my theme was a good excuse to use them. 

As soon as I stamped the white tag, the shoes struck a cord, with Elvis Presley's Blue Suede Shoes. Just that simple image made me sing the song,lol.

I hope you will join us at Tag Tuesday

 It's July already, where did the last few months go, this year seems to be going by so quickly.

The 5th July see our monthly challenge get under way over at More Mixed Media

Our challenge is all about Mixed Media and if you chose, you can use our colour option, which is Pastel.

There is a prize on offer, as well as the blog badges, so do pop over during the next 4 weeks.

For my design team project I chose to alter a large jigsaw puzzle piece. I was fortunate to get a bagful of these pieces from a children's floor puzzle in a charity shop.

There are fun to do, as it's summer ( or supposed to be,lol ) I went with a beach theme, hope you like it.

A Tag, on a Tag

 Good Morning Everyone, I am back after having a few, much needed days away. The weather was incredibly hot, now I am home it's raining...and cooler.

Time now to get back in to crafting

Wendy, over at Tag Tuesday has chosen Tag on Tag as her theme for the challenge this time around, so I have made mine using a Sewing theme.

As you can see, the lighting wasn't good when I took my photos, the tags are a light cream colour,lol.

Faces Tag

 Michele has chosen the them over at Tag Tuesday and it's Faces.

I am fortunate enough to have several stamps featuring faces, but I have chosen  to use this one because it has had less use than the others. 

I stamped the face, then masked it and stamped the rest of the card with a background stamp.
Then I just added colour to the flowers, leaves and lips. 
I wanted to keep it simple. 
Do pop over and join us, we have another week left for our challenge.

Take a Trip (SPA)

 It's sunday, so time for another challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art, the theme this week has been chosen by Peggy...and it is "Take a Trip"

I actually had a few ideas as to how I was going to design my postcard, but in the end I plumped for an old set of rubber stamps from Darkroom Door.

I have only used these stamps a handful of times, so they deserved to be bought out and played with.

I kept my postcard black & white, although you wouldn't think that as it looks rather gray, why is it when you photograph white card it either looks grey of pale blue?
I made a collage using several of the stamps, then stamped the street/area names separately and added them once the postcard was done.
So how many of us would love to "Take a Trip" to the USA, unless of course you already live there.

Purple Paint

 Where did May go, last month seemed to fly by didn't it.

The weather seems to be veering more to Summertime now, so less time indoors while we enjoy it.

Over at More Mixed Media the challenge for June has just started.

As always it is anything goes, so long as it is mixed media. 

There is a Purple Colour Option, should you want to create your entry using that colour.

I created a Tag for my design team piece, keeping the tag white I used purple distress ink through a splat stencil.
The image of the brush and the tubes of paint were stamped, then I stamped the paints tubes on a separate piece of card, coloured them and added them to the tag using foam pads. Next I coloured the paintbrush.

Finally finishing the tag with the words that I mounted on black card and foam pads.
Do pop over and join in with our challenge, it runs for 4 weeks, plus there is a prize and badges up for grabs.
