#52CafeCards Week 18 – R

Week 18’s Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Challenge presented by Maremi’s Creative Cafe on Facebook was R – Rocks and Roses.

The double weeks are harder for me to come up with a cohesive theme. So, I searched Bing Images and found a brick/block home with climbing roses. I have always loved the look rock houses. Thus the inspiration for this painting.

On watercolor paper, I used Elegant Writer to sketch in the house and windows and Inktense pencils for the roses, grass, sky and tree. I love the house and roses. The rest? Meh!

Love playing with the Elegant Writer!

Home Sweet Home!

#52CafeCard Week 14/N – Numbers

Week 14’s Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Challenge presented by Maremi’s Creative Cafe on Facebook was N – Numbers. This week turned to the personal again. There are a lot of number cards that are inspired by a certain look. I love that look but wanted to go in a different direction because I didn’t want to feel like a copy cat. But else can you do with numbers?

There is a story behind the numbers in this card. Each three digit number represents a place we’ve lived. I am convinced that there is a move in my future. If you knew my circumstances, you would think I am crazy.

The longest I have lived in one home is thirteen years. Once during my childhood and once during my children’s childhood. What is the longest you have lived in one place?

Home Sweet Home,

#52CafeCards Week 3

I don’t like coffee. It was my luck that week three’s card is C – Coffee. Yuck.

I decided to play. It was a lot of fun to explore fake advertising. Technique learned – first time to have paper embellishment hanging off.

Again, this altered playing card was created for Maremi’s Creative Cafe’s(private Facebook art group) Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Challenge.

Find a way to turn lemons into lemonaid, I did. It was fun.

Blessings,
