Our Duty

I've used a Found Relative (Tim Holtz) to feature in this tag. Was Halloween just around the corner since this little tyke is wearing what appears to be a uniform jacket (that's a tad too big)?

The flowers were drawn by Alphonse Mucha (clipped from one of his posters) and I also used a torn bit of book paper tinted with inks and embossed with polka dots.

All the collage elements were placed on top of an oversized image of an old envelope that was found in a book on philately.

As I've mentioned before, I find the best way to tint the "relatives" is to use Pitt Artist Brush pens.

I'm linking to Simon's Monday challenge since Halloween is the theme.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.

Mr. Blue Eyes

I made a journal page inspired by Simon's fall colors mood board challenge by stamping (Simon's Sunflower Garden) on a piece of Paper Stash (Tim Holtz) then filled-in the flowers with paint and inks. I added a kitty cut from a magazine and a few pieces of altered ephemera (Tim Holtz). The hand-drawn frame/border was made using markers and colored pencils.

As always, I hope this post finds you well and happy and I appreciate your visit.

Until next time, take care.

Discover Yourself

The pleasure I get from experimenting--deciding to color a stamp in an unconventional way, slapping a figure on top that seems to work with it, then digging-up suitable text--that's what I call a good day.

I can't imagine what my readers make of these concoctions but I will say that going a little outside the box can be quite fun.

I'm linking to Simon for this week's challenge which is to "stitch it."
