I believe in my Mask

This week's theme on Sunday Postcard Art is Masquerade.

I found a wonderful image to use, but I've been tidying up this week and ended up misplacing it.... so I had to come up with an alternative plan...
going through my images I came across some images from Nancy at Crowabout Studio... and the faces could be interpreted as a 'mask' ;-)  that's my reasoning and I'm sticking to it.

Can you believe the postcard started off like this... once I finished with everything you can't see anything of the first layer! lol

What sunshine is to Flowers, smiles are to Humanity

This week's Sunday Postcard Art is THE SUN ... it's been chosen by Anne

I've seen glimpses of sunshine through the window but generally the weather in England has been horrible, rain and wind... but it IS Winter so how can one complain? Soon we will be complaining it's too hot! ahhh the English way of complaining

here is my postcard before I added any paint to it... there's something lacking (besides colour) I think it's the absence of texture paste. Sometimes I get carried away collaging and forget to add texture beforehand and then there is little space to add texture afterwards.

and here is the postcard once the painting has finished ;-)

one of my favourite things to do is to discover new quotes
and this time it was no different.

seeing is believing

Happy New Year everyone.

I had an eventful December~ to say the least!
Firstly, I went to Morocco for a few days.... came home with a stomach bug, then got a bad cold (which I've still got) then went and fell over and broke my elbow!!!  So I'm semi incapacitated at the moment.... it took me 2 days to make this postcard.

This week the theme on SPA is WINGS chosen by the lovely AUDREY

feeling grateful

our theme over on SPA this week is GRATITUDE...

there's so much I feel sad for these days but I do have some bright spots in my life... my beautiful daughter, my friends and then there is nature. i am truly grateful for the beauty that surrounds us in nature.
Whilst I was making my postcard, I was debating what I wanted to do on it. I decided on nature and what happened? a ladybird appeared on my work table! a sure sign i was going in the right direction.

show us what you feel grateful for :-)

photo is atrocious, i will retake in the morning :-)

wow.... my mojo has been stuck in a rut for sometime now.... i just cannot seem to motivate myself to make anything paperie.

But thankfully, this week Mr Mojojojo has paid me a little visit to make this postcard.

Also my glasses are broken so Im thinking this pic may well be a tad blurry. lol
