While I was at it, I made these greeting cards as well:
… because I joined Get Messy after the paper swap had taken place. Something with a nice texture, something stamped, some paper with text… as I have all of that in my stash, anyway, I pretended to gather papers for an imaginary swap partner. The result is this combination which I’ll show you as the finished art journal page:
My newest pages aren't done yet, but here is an older one I want to show you. This is the result of the "swap" that I did with myself (I joined Get Messy after the original swap). #getmessyartjournal #getmessyprompts #getmessythursdays #artjournal #artjournaling #art #mixedmedia #collage #foundpoetry #foundpoem
For the newest Retro Sketch I made this card:
Apart from that I am looking forward to next week’s craft show which I am preparing for. Details follow tomorrow 😀
Yay, I got it online on time! I almost forgot to upload it (just like I did in January)… So here’s my newest tag, inspired by Tim Holtz’ February tag for his challenge “12 tags of 2015“. It is a little simpler than I had planned to make it, but somehow it felt complete the way it is.
It refers to my Mom and Dad’s vintage postcard collection, and I actually used some of their cards (scanned and printed) for this tag. The handwritten sample on top comes from an old recipe book which I once bought at a fleamarket.
Here are two more details (stickers which were still in my stash, and some lace):
Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday, so the current Mojo Monday sketch came at the perfect time. As a little eye-catcher I chose one of my vintage images, a sweet cutie 🙂
There used to be a doggie sitting next to the boy, but I had to cut him off because he didn’t really look good on the card. Sorry, doggie.
The book page comes from an old, boring fleamarket book which still serves a purpose as craft supply. So here’s my card, I’m looking forward to your feedback 😉
Last Christmas, I gave you a card…”
Just like last year, my Christmas cards feature images extracted from my Mom’s collected vintage postcards (plus some images from The Graphics Fairy). How do you like them?
