Nothing is as old as yesterday's news

This week's theme on Sunday Postcard Art is NEWSPAPER ... it was chosen by Marion :-) I love the theme but alas I am not a fan of newspapers

I don't read newspapers, or watch the news. It's probably totally irresponsible of me and un-adult. But Little A usually tells me what's happening in the world. Besides the environmental factor there is generally no reason for not watching the news except believing things that we are told to believe. I do think we are manipulated by the media into thinking things that aren't true.

When I see newpapers, i just think of trees... and litter. On the buses around Derby they give you a free newspapers and by the end of the day, the newspapers are littered all over the bus.

here's my postcard, i've used papers, a newspaper stamp. rub-ons. tim holtz paper doll.

the beginnings of the process. lots of layers of ephemera to start with then using a newspaper stamp, and crackle paste
 here's the stamp i used... not sure where it's from.

This is fantastic Mandy. As usual, you have many great details in the background. And it's not un-adult to not watch the news. I stopped watching the news when I realized it's slanted and propaganda.
