Mixed Media Monday "Wings"


I have not been able to blog for ages, nor did I have time to create art much... work was just too busy, also I had a friend to stay. But things are slowly getting back to normal and I decided to use some of the themes on challenge blogs as art journal prompts. The theme at MMM is wings, and as I seem to be right into angels at the moment,that was easy. I also wanted to use one of the images of William Bouguereau. I got a whole Lunagirl CD full of them. I love his paintings and I know I will use them again and again. Angel and girl don't really go together in style, so I tried to tie it together with the colours I used....

  4. ps...Astrid do you actually stick the images to your page, or do you do image transfer...I have been trying that, but not got the knack yet...I need more practice I think..

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
