It's that time of the year again....

..... Autumn is starting to manifest itself.
Leafs are falling, the house is getting a bit chilly in the evenings and the sun spreads a different light..... I am loving every minute of it.. at least this weekend haha!
For Sunday Postcard Art I made the following card for this weeks Autumn topic...
No deep thoughts this week, nor was I very inspired when I saw the prompt, I was just happy to use these leaves for the very first time...and I already have them for 2 years! I also got to use some of the new colours I got last friday of watersoluble Caran D'Ache crayons :-)

Enjoy your Sunday everyone and have a good week at work..or whatever it is you do this coming week!

Life is a circus....

.... and some people just can't handle that!

this weeks topic at Sunday Postcard Art is Circus.
Again, I did not want to go for the obvious tiger, clown, bearded lady, elephant.. and so on. Searching for inspiration led me to the one and only circus I have ever liked: Monthy Pythons Flying Circus :-)!
Their absurd sketches were my inspiration this week.
I have embedded one of my favorite sketches ever "The Lethal Joke"... might die laughing!

Enjoy your Sunday!

Rose is a rose is a rose...

A very busy week has gone by...without any time for creativity..until today!
For this weeks topic at Sunday Postcard Art I altered my favorite flowerpaper from Scenic Route and the text on the card was inspired by this quote

Have a good week everyone!

Postcard Make-Over Show

Not only are we being Amused to Death on television with one makeover show after another, at Sunday Postcard Art they want to you alter a "real" postcard this week and to give it a new look!
I say: "No problem!"

Here is my BEFORE


This altered nude is originally from painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani and I dressed her up a little and gave her some tattoos because nudity on blogs should be strictly forbidden!
Actually, when I first saw her I thought: "she hasn't got anything to hide"... so I can't explain why I covered her up...
Well..I love her anyway; dressed or undressed, she is just beautiful I think!

Enjoy your sunday and hop on over to the Sunday Postcard Art blog to see more make-overs

Week 5 already!

Collage Crowabout week 5

When you haven't seen the original collagesheet that was uploaded by Crowabout in the Flickr Crowabout group, it is hard to imagine that this bird was made out of a lot of square images that absolutely didn't look like a bird at all!
While cutting out the elements I was holding the sheet up side down and for some reason I then "saw" the bird! aaaah...I love being inspired!

(if you ask yourself why this image is so huge, I have copied the html code from my flickrupload of this image. Blogger would never make it this big)

Her name was Lola.. she was a showgirl

When I saw her face on the collagesheet..
this song popped into my head immediately
