Amy is our host at the Sunday Postcard Art blog and has chosen FAMILY as the theme for this week. My husband and I are still traveling but are somewhat stationary in Yuma, Arizona, which has given me time to take out some art supplies and play along with Amy and the rest of the group.
Keeping it simple is a requirement when creating while on the road, and today's postcard is a perfect example of just that. My postcard was cut to 4x6" from a scrap of designer paper from a Tim Holtz idea-ology pad. I have used the back side as my background. The next step was to dive into my Tim Holtz vintage paper doll collection and to select a few dolls to create my "family." I chose some from both the small- and medium-size dolls.
The family I created is somewhat representative of both my family and my husband's family. Both of us have been raised in "two-parent" homes. There were four children born to my parents and five to Russ's parents. Both Russ and I have two children from former marriages. Each of us has adopted a child. Both our families have become "blended" over the years. But, whether you are from a large or small family, whether or not your children are being raised by one or both parents, whether or not you or one of your children is adopted, whether or not your family has become racially blended, family is FAMILY--and don't mess with mine!
Thank you for visiting today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both inspire me.
