One for sorrow, two for joy…

Remember “Magpie”, the kids’ series? That inspired my thinking for this week’s Three Muses challenge – “Numbers”. Here are a couple of ATCs with a scraped paint background and some stamping over fusible lightweight interfacing: for sorrow...

...two for joy...

We shall be going fishing tomorrow with a family friend and I think we will probably giggle more than we fish… I just hope the weather stays reasonable!! After all the tension of the last few weeks, we need a break – health issues for DH, a very weird and nasty family situation for a close friend and yet another school for DD. Good thing this is the last year of it, is all I can say and… Art really does save lives – I am living proof. 😦

  1. Two wonderful ATCs, Rosie. I wish you a happy fishing day tomorrow.

  2. Both are beautiful, Rosie. As I read about your use of the fusible interfacing, I wondered if the anti-static dryer sheets couldn’t be used in a similar way. I throw away so many, it would be nice to use them in some way. I’m sure you could turn them into a work of art!! Good fishing!

  3. Lovely interpretation of the quote Rosie- wonderful symbolism!

    Rosie, really gorgeous popping colours and yet more of your amazing wizardry and inventiveness with all kinds of mediums. I love both cards and I’m going to send a link to my art friend who does this kind of art, she will love them too.

    Happy fishing/giggling and a lovely day!
