Venus Smiles Not in a House of Tears

This week's theme on SPA was chosen by Stacy but for unknown reasons I have had to make the sample myself

I've used a stamp of Botticelli's Venus (just her head) that I've had in my collection for yonks and zettified her up.

Legs Eleven

This week, Marion has chosen the theme of STRIPEY LEGS.

The theme is close to my heart... I love all things ZETTI. I have a whole box of zetti dolls I've made over the years. I scan them and keep the originals and then I can resize them as and when I want to use them

This first one is an altered Frida doll. Really pleased with this postcard
 The second postcard I've made this week, is using a 'doll' I made. I love using giant eyes

hey you, yes you

This week, our hostess on Sunday Postcard Art is Anne (cornucopia) she's chosen the theme of Asian.... lovely popular theme.

This is mine
hope it's not too dark, the difference in my phone and the laptop is huge.

I love the facial expression on this young lady and the quote goes so well with it.

 This is my birdhouse from last week, unfortunately I keep forgetting to blog after I've uploaded to Instagram :-( and then the week is gone.

Perfect little Gems

This year (yes i know it's May) I have been doing a monthly swap with a couple of friends of INDEX CARDS. I picked up a folder of index cards from Wilkos for a pound. And as we all know as artists we see things we can make with ordinary things. So a got a few and posted them off to some friends so we could do some swaps.
These two are made by me to keep for me... this months theme is Insects for one swap and mice/rats for the other. 

I love this little size... slightly larger than an ATC but not as big as a postcard... a perfect way to try techniques and products on.
A few week's ago I asked on INSTAGRAM if anyone wanted to trade so I've had a number of fabulous swaps going on. It's so much fun!

Embrace Childhood

I've been consumed with making these Index Cards since Christmas! I've bought a few folders to send a couple of my friends so we can do some monthly challenges together but also to make our own Index Cards too. I'm using up lots of scraps from old collage sheets and images I have gathering dust. So....

on Take A Word this week the theme is CHILDHOOD.

flourishing

This year is the 10 year anniversary of Sunday Postcard Art. My friend Donna (who went on to other things) and I started it so long ago.... challenge blog were all about making art for art sake in those days, except for a number of other blogs just for fun, they seem to mostly offer 'prizes'
I'm so glad we on Sunday Postcard Art continue to support each other after all these years and keep the art flowing!

this isn't a great pic but hopefully tomorrow in the daylight I will be able to get a better one.
