Day of the Dead!

Over at Sunday Postcard Art, I got to kick back with this very vivid theme this week… I used a piece of cereal box cut to 6″x4″, brayered white and then collaged with assorted text and music paper. The piece of OS map is from a Country File magazine and I used a little pigment ink in mauve and blue (direct to paper), some orange translucent paint and Neos. The outlining of the image and words was done using a 9B graphite stick.

Club 1830?

I used an image from Ten Two Studios, just trimmed a bit and it was a lot of fun! I always miss my Mum at this time of the year, so this bright and colourful postcard cheered me up no end. I also seem to have issues about starting my Whimsies – maybe they’ll resolve themselves next week! Have a great weekend! 🙂
