It's a Mystery

 Ok... First thing that comes to my mind when thinking this weeks postcard theme MYSTERY is the song It's a mystery by Toyah so no prizes what's been giving me an ear worm for the past few days!

The Mystery theme was chosen by the lovely Cindy

Here's my collaged postcard. All pieces have been fussy cut 

Thanks for looking

Where do you come from?

 Thats what Marion, our hostess with the mostest wants to know this week.

This stumped me completely. Besides not having any stamps or access to a printer, i started thinking about the bigger picture. I descend from Vikings (yes i know!) My mum was German coming from an island called Sylt my dad was a Londoner through and through, although his mother came from Wales. 

I decided to stick to where I was born and where i feel like im from Peterborough in Cambridgeshire

I found these little boxes of info about places around the area in a map book and used as the background, Barnack, Ferry Meadows, Nene Valley to name a few. 

Added a paperdoll from TH and painted my background.

Thanks for looking

"a birdsong can even,

 for a moment, make the whole world into a sky within us, because we feel that the bird does not distinguish between its heart and the world's." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

This week the theme on Sunday Postcard Art is SONG BIRD , chosen by Tania at Tatty Treasures on youtube
