Dogs leave Pawprints on our Hearts


 This week, SPA is hosted by the adorable Amy who has chosen the theme of DOGS

i love my dogs so much. I have 6 altogether. 

My Mr Petrie is the oldest, hes now 13. Then Prudence, my first Romanian rescue... So much part of my heart. Our 2 other Romanian rescues, Betsy and Fleur are both differently abled each with 3 legs. And last but not least are our 2 tiny chihuahuas, Frida and Kahlo

The next picture is for perspective as the girls look ginormous but are teeny tiny

And here is my postcard,

Good life

 definitely wishful thinking! Do you ever feel like 'what am i doing' my mojo is not playing along with me... I feel helpless and hopeless right now...

Im glad I have SPA to keep me plodding along making at least one thing a week.

Its ASEMIC WRITING this week... Very interesting subject to try to make sense of and interpret. I had some Dina Wakley stamps that I used on tissue paper for the background of my postcard.

Who are You?

 This week's theme on SPA is GAMES chosen  by the wonderful Peggy ... automatically I think of Bingo, cards, chess which in turn makes me think of ALICE IN WONDERLAND

but of course, games could be lots of things... like cricket, football, etc although on more thought they are classed as SPORTS games but games are games non the less.

So as I'd treated myself to a new set of STAMPERIA Alice items I decided to go ahead with using these to create my postcard.

I used old Alice book pages to begin the collage background, added gesso and texture paste through a stencil. And then proceeded to start my chipboard collage and use paint my postcard. I added crackle glaze on the chipboard pieces too and used Distress Crayons on top of that to create the crackle effect
