Make a Moo or Two has a lovely theme this week of vintage romance. Gorgeous pictures of lovely women in beautiful, long gowns, hair piled on top of their heads, and gentlemen so handsome in their tux...those were the days...or were they?
Icy Blue! And it's so icy outside that the theme is wonderfully appropriate! I used a ledger stamp, a handsome little fairy, a scroll stamp overstamped with white and then a lighter blue, and a small joy charm. Fun theme!
The challenge site "Make a Moo or Two" has a theme of "Buildings". I rambled around for a while trying to come up with something and I found my Halloween folder and there was this great house...some ink, charcoal birds (or are they bats?) and here is my "Building" for "Make a Moo or Two".
The theme on Dans ma maison il y a is du dore...or gold...what a wonderful challenge and what wonderful artwork! It was irresistable and I worked on my Golden House. I love Golden's colors, so that's what I used. Also used some golden skeleton leaves and some gold waste. The label and the vintage woman (I just love her face, reminds me of photos of my mom when she was young) come from Diva d'este...great collage sheet source, and fine art on that site, too.
I painted my arch with a few Golden colors and found a picture of an original gypsy wagon, and a gypsy woman with a face that tells her whole life. I used some flourishes and german scrap to finish it off. And I'm using a new scanner/printer! Mine gave up the ghost two days ago. There could have been (but wasn't) a foot of snow on the ground and I would have gone out to get a new one...is that desperate or what? LOL!
Grunge...Gothic Arches theme this week is all about grunge. I have a funny little stamp that I just love, but not a lot of people seem to share my feelings about her. Oh well...I decided to use her in the grunge theme (wonder why?) So, here's my creation - I call it "In Dusty Girl's Garden".
Really cool theme...cowboys with lassoes...lots of fun to think up just the right thing, find the right kind of picture. During my search, I came across a really fun saying about cowboys that I had to use. So, here's my take on the theme of cowboys with lassoes
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
