Enthralled with Fall

Fall is a wind gust away and it's with this season change in mind that I created this little 3x3 piece this morning - a very blustery day in Southeast Alaska, I might add. Collage image from Retro Art Cafe. Text from ArtChix. Fall is also this week's Crazy Amigo challenge.

Mixed Media Monday: Seek Beauty

Think metals/metallics for this week's MMM challenge. I've done just that with this card. I used alcohol inks on metal foil tape as a layer for this card that will go out to a friend in the mail this week. Monday night I'm getting together with friends to paint silver items with alcohol inks. Will try and get some photos to post. Enjoy.

Morning Arch

Here's my two-for-one ATC. First, it is designed for the TMTA challenge of Architecture. The second challenge is Mixed Media Monday's Favorite Time of Day challenge. I'll have to go with morning - not early work morning, but leisurely-before-family-is-up morning with coffee, ink, stamp and paper. The paper captures this morning's hues over the sea.

Back to School

I'm wearing two school hats this year - began my 14th year of teaching English and a return to French and an evening course at UAS for student teachers. The college class starts Tuesday night and runs through December 1st. As I worked on my postcard tonight, I kept toying with the idea of school marm and one-room school. Is the art of teaching easier now, or was it easier then? See all the lovely cards at Sunday Postcard Art. Collage images from Collagevisions; stamps by Oxford Impressions.
