Mary, Mary, quite contrary…

Nursery Rhymes is the theme at Sunday Postcard Art this week and I got this weird idea about how to interpret it quite unexpectedly whilst looking through my stash of images… for something completely different!

You know how you quite often use a few small images for bamboo tiles – for bracelets, pins, pendants, etc. and have odd ones left over? Well I had some left that fit this theme quite well – maybe not in the conventional sense, but then that’s not me anyway, is it? Lol! These are all from the Dainty Dominos sheet at Ten Two Studios. And “Mary” is a Microscope Slide image from the new-ish Baroque Beauties sheet.


I omitted the silver bells and cockle shells because I didn’t have any!! This was fun to do… and tomorrow I’m Guesting at Mixed Media Monday – with “Greens and Blues”, so I shall prepare that post now too. Diane’s always so far ahead of me because of the different time zones, but I look forward to seeing what everyone creates with that palette. Toodles!
