(please say yes, as i actually do not have a "plan b" for today's post... except to suggest that the LOLcats always provide hearty laughs; or perhaps you'd prefer HAMSTERDANCE**?!)
as always, these are based on prompts devised by the very clever and talented miss tammy of the daisy yellow art blog; most from the week 6 list; the last two from week 7:
card#39 (a two-fer): draw apples or lemons
AND draw lines with a ruler
because the natural response to those two prompts was ALWAYS going to be a "tartan tatin"*** obviously.
card#40: circus AND use a definition
another two-fer; both just good excuses to root through lots of lovely vintagey bits until i found something that worked!
card#41: colored pencils
basically just a full-on "CASE" of tammy's gorgeous ICAD badge, but done in colored pencil instead of watercolors. (i am having to physically restrain myself from "finishing" this by adding a focal image or sentiment or SOMETHING... process not outcome; process not outcome...)
card#42: cut out
not a two-fer but a double play: fussy-cut images AND a circle punched in the top of my two layered cards, in which prince charming is kneeling.
A LOT of layers here, even for me; arguably too many; or maybe just not enough definition between them? this one was ALL ABOUT "process" however... (as opposed to outcome) ...so i'm callin' it a "win"!!!
card#44: concentric circles
...or in this case ECCENTRIC circles: punched, inked, stacked wonkily, layered with transparency off-cuts and then stitched all over. better than therapy this one was; cheaper, too! (this is lovely husband jeff's favorite card so far; he's always very kind and complimentary about things i make, but this one really intrigued him, he kept turning it around and over to see how it was constructed, etc; i love it when that happens!!!) ♥♥♥
*yes, i am runnin' out of snappy titles for these and have begun to just get silly. sorry about that, can i just OWE you an awesome title to be presented at a later date?! (like... when someone else thinks up a great one i can STEAL?!) thanks! :) :) :)
**you'd forgotten all about HAMSTERDANCE hadn't you?! yeah, me too. you're welcome!
***pat yourself on the back if you get this joke; until you realize... it probably makes you as weird as i am! (sorry!) :)
