This is my entry to Sunday Postcard Art challenge with the theme "Home Sweet Home".

EDIT: Home Sweet Home Revisited
I wasn´t quite pleased with the card, so I added there words from the song "Who´ll stop the rain".

Neljän kortin ATC-sarja CCR:n Bad Moon Rising-biisin sanoista. Nuo kiiltokuvat kuvaavat sitä musiikkipuolta ja luovat kontrastia noihin synkkiin sanoihin...

A serie of four ATCs about CCR´s Bad Moon Rising-lyrics. Those cut-outs represent that music side and create the contrast to those dark words...

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 86

I really believe that the time is running faster than before! How many days there have been after the WOYWW last week? ...two? three? But in spite of that I have crafted something! Oh yeah, and last saturday!!! But first my workdesk this morning:

And here is the ATC "things in my mind" a bit closer. The eyes are drawn and painted with Derwent´s Ink Tense pencils, other images are stamps from Prima Marketing and Paper Artsy (odd things in my mind) and the key is 7gypsies´.

More workdesks on Julia´s Stamping Ground blog!

Last week you wondered what am I doing with those butterflies! Here are those "butterfly-beings" as they are now!

And what about last saturday? We were invited to a birthday party of my elder daughter´s fiancé. But it proved to be a wedding ocassion! And moreover, I´m becoming granny!!! (next summer) I do not even realize yet what has happened! :D

Collage Obsession Challenge "Carnivale Pazzo"

Piiitkästä aikaa otan osaa Collage Obsessionin haasteeseen! Siellä onkin tiimi vaihtunut... tämän viikon haaste on Rickiltä. Hän antoi kuvan Mariosta/Luigista (kutsun häntä mieluummin Luigiksi)ja aiheena on Crazy Carnival-Carnivale Pazzo!
Tässä minun kollaasini - osaksi "manuaalinen", osaksi digitaalinen.

For a looong time participating to Collage Obsession´s challenge! There has the team changed... and this week´s challenge is from Rick. He gave the pic about Mario/Luigi (I prefer calling him Luigi) and the theme is Crazy Carnival-Carnivale Pazzo!
My collage is partly manual, partly digital.

Koukussa Kortteihin Vintage-haasteena oli tehdä maze book. Ohje minulla jo olikin, mutten ollut kokeillut aikaisemmin.
Molempien kirjojen sivuista olen tehnyt taskuja - ensimmäiseen ompelemalla koneella ja toiseen kaksipuoleisella teipillä. Ensimmäisen kirjan taskuista löytyy keijuja.

On Koukussa Kortteihin site there is a Vintage-challenge to make a maze book. I already had the instructions, but had not tried to make it before.
I made pockets to both of the books. In the first book they are made by machine-stitching and to the other with doublesided tape. From the pockets of the first book you can find fairies.

Toisen kirjan kannet on tehty vanhasta kirjan kannesta, kuvat ovat Tim Holtzin ja allakan sivu printti jostain...

The covers of the second book are made of an old book cover, pics are from Tim Holtz and the calendar is a print from somewhere...
