The Window to your Soul

This week's theme on Sunday Postcard Art was chosen by the fab Audrey. The theme is WINDOWS.

I've made two postcards this week.... the first featuring Frida... and a partial quote from Celine Dion (not sure how that would go across with Miz Kahlo lol)

 My second postcard features a vintage nun image.
 Really enjoy using religious imagery in my work for myself
come over and join us if you can

You spin Me right Round

.... that's a blast from the past! lol And it's also the new theme on the That's Crafty Challenge Blog 

I went the whole hog and made a circular tag. You can't really see it but I used texture paste through a clock stencil on the background. And I've used a set of my fave Paperartsy Hot Picks stamps.

Come and join in for a chance to win a £20 voucher to spend in the That's Crafty shop

Maggies Farm

Ever since Carol suggested a 'down on the farm' theme for this week's SPA theme, I've had Bob Dylan's song in my head and so I had to use the lyrics to inspire this postcard.

I've used one of the distress backgrounds I made at Anne's last weekend. And images from LisasAltered Art as well as various rubberstamps and a little bit of washi... gotta love washi

I heard a rumour

“Why do you look so sad?"
"Because you speak to me in words and I look at you with feelings.” 

This week's Tagalong is Pierrot and is hosted by Audrey

Gypsy Soul

I love the imagery of gypsies and bohemian lifestyles so I was delighted when Carol said she'd like to do a Gypsy inspired week at Tagalong.

Here's my tag... I've used the focal image from Hidden Vintage Studios on Deviant Scrap
