October Love Notes

I participated in the Love Notes Postcard group.  We were to send just 3 postcards in 3 weeks.  My cards went to Terilyn in Colorado.
Week 1 - I sent her a little fall watercolor.
Week 2 - a quilted house postcard.
Week 3 - a collaged flower card.

This is always a fun project.

I have finished sewing the selvages together.  Now to add a border.  It was so much fun selecting the colors and fabrics - I still have a lot left over though!!!

Tissue Paper

Our weekly challenge is to use tissue paper.
I created a background on my page with acrylics and gesso.  Using artist tissue paper, I traced this drawing from a magazine then added it to my page with matte medium.  Pencils gave her face a little color.

I love how the tissue paper disappears.

Documented Life Journal

Still catching up with my journal pages, I was able to finish two this past weekend.
The art challenge was "Silhouettes" and the journal prompt was "There is no shadow without the light".  I made a collage using black and white magazine pages then added the balloons with colored pencils.
Art challenge was "Storyboard" and the journal prompt was "A week in the life".  I had a very busy week with weddings, lunches and reunions - it was easy to use photos from the activities.
