I am again privileged to host the Sunday Postcard Art challenge. I decided to shake things up a bit and choose a possibly controversial theme--NUDITY. One can take a variety of paths that lead to this theme--from the innocent to the Victorian to the erotic. For my examples, I have chosen one from each of these areas.
The first begins with a free digital image from a site called freubels-freebies. Using Adobe Photoshop Elements 11, I changed the colored image to black and white and printed it onto 4x6" glossy photo paper on my computer printer. I created the text in Word, then printed it on top of my black and white photo. I used a Sharpie to add just a bit of yellow.
The second postcard is a photo I took recently with my cell phone. It is the wallpaper in the Ladies Room at the Carriage House Restaurant in Rye, New Hampshire. It couldn't have been more simple.
Recently, my friend Gail Tasker from Norway sent me a beautiful handmade Christmas card which included some "happy mail." The stamp I have used here (from Artistic Stamper) was among Gail's gifts. The text used I cut from a book called The Age of Ideas which was given to me by my sister when she downsized her personal library.
I hope you enjoyed my artful creations today and will find some time this week to play along with this postcard challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and for taking a moment to leave a comment.
