ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art (01-15-17)

It has been longer than a month since I have had the time, the necessary supplies and the all-important electricity so that I might participate in the Sunday Postcard Art (SPA) challenge! Mandy Chilvers is the owner of the SPA website and is also hosting today. The theme this week is listed as ZETTI INSPIRED.


Zettiology. I had to look that one up--and that in itself was not an easy task! I finally found an article authored by Susan Luke which proved most helpful. You can find it here. In a nutshell, it is the artful combination of the real with the unreal--or the playful mix of reality and fantasy, most often combining human and animal parts usually accompanied by text. I did my best at putting these elements together with the helpful stamps of both Wendy Vecchi and Dyan Revealey.

The text reads: Her style was sassy with just a bit of attitude! The background was created by swiping Distress Stains (frayed burlap, old paper and tea dye) diagonally across the 4" x 6" photo paper. The dress, frog head and cap were stamped on white index cards, fussy cut and adhered to that. The text circles and text stamp were stamped directly onto the photo paper.

Although this is not my style, I will admit that it was a bit of fun! If you would like to join in on the week's challenge, you can find the details here.

Thanks for stopping by today and also for taking a moment to leave a comment. If you have difficulty commenting, just do so as "anonymous" and leave your name so that I will know you were here!

Cheers from Arizona!

  6. I love everything about this uber-cool postcard, Kay - the design, your fab colour scheme, the vertically stamped sentiment, and how you've chosen not to colour the frog-woman - and I've learned a new word to boot, LOL! This may not be "your style" but you do it very well!
