Klimt Postcard Again

 Just dropping in to share my 2nd digital postcard that I created for Sunday Postcard Art.

Rosie chose the theme "Klimt" and although I had every intention to create my postcard with a stamp, I just couldn't find it!

For this postcard I used the Painting and photo of Adele, but also added the Tree of Life as an overlay.

Had fun with this and Rosie's theme took me out of my comfort zone,lol.

You can find the challenge here at Sunday Postcard Art

Klimt at Sunday Postcard Art.

 A tad early for me today, but I haven't been having a very good night's sleep recently, doesn't help when you have had a couple of busy days.

Over at Sunday Postcard Art Rosie has chosen the theme "Klimt" 

I was hoping to get my postcard done in time for sunday, but life gets in the way sometimes,lol.

So here it is, a digital creation this time. I'm not that good with digital works, I just like to dabble now and again. 

To be honest, somewhere in my stash I have a rubber stamp of Klimt's "Death, I call it the skull man, the stamp is by Cherry Pie Stamps, but as alway when you want something, you can never find it.

The images I have used here are Adele, the famous painting, but overlaid with her photo.

I do like the way the postcard looks, I have another that I created, but will pop that in my next post.

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.
