Darcy I will add links soon. (see i have linked) Set a post card challenge. And I love postcards my ears pricked up
I don't consider myself arty in any way I take photos I doodle and that's my limit
I saw some of my friends had joined. In and I thought sod it I wanna play!
So the challenge is create oust cards a story and 2 characters
Country 1 was Austria. This is a country I have visited twice I was only in second and third year at high school I remember the highlight was finding a McDonald's oh how cultured we were!
It's a beautiful country and I want to find some of my photos to decorate my background.
Inspired by my friend sue. If I've been to the country of the week I want to include pictures from there.
Ok post card. I'm really not happy with it but I will share
Bet you can't guess who my inspiration is?!
UPDATE 20/01/12 - i go on holiday tomorrow but as i'm actually on the computer i wanted to flesh out my post a little bit.
Yes you guessed correctly my inspiration is Klimt and the painting Hope.
i got a bit giddy colouring in with pencil crayons i'd got free from H&M (yes the clothes shop) which was just on a scrap of note pad paper then i started with the buttons, on my way home from work i popped into Paperchase (never a good idea) and i might have accidently purchased some pro markers.
i prob should have shopped around bought on line but i don't care they got me what i wanted, the pack i've got is comic book 2 ( it think) i used the poppy for the background, and a brown that has turned out quite gold got the circles. and i left the boobies out!
i also got a fab book in the sale to use, i was just going to use an existing note book i had but the postcards are almost the same size this pad has a spiralbound spine so room for extra pages and the pages are almost card like with a fab (almost) square lines whicgh i'm happy to have showing.
i haven't looked for the Austia pictures yet. why did they not have digital cameras back then?!
the flag is just printed out and the pen is a calligraphy from a pack i got from asda i think you get 8 in a pack 2 blue, red, green and black.
