Butterfly Inspiration

Postcard collage for ARTchix challenge inspired by vintage butterfly postcard

another postcard collage inspired by ARTchix butterfly-themed weekly challenge

I adore butterflies. And that made this week’s ARTchix challenge extra fun in making these postcard collages. All kinds of creative inspiration takes wing at the ARTchix Studio blog:

On creative wings

August 16, 2009

The current ARTchix art challenge at their cool blog inspired this salute to creative thoughts that take flight in the face of bright, beautiful, and whimsical ARTchix goodies. This postcard-sized piece of art uses images from a “masterboard” of art bits created by Helga Strauss, as well as images from Chixies Hat Affair, Tangerine Travels, the Romantic Keepsakes Kit, a just-the-right-size clipping from Helga’s printed newsletter, and paper from a pretty floral gift bag in the background. Hats off to all the talented and creative artists out there who lift us up on the wings of their wonderful ideas & playful thoughts!


Angels with Paws

August 11, 2009

Author Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy (SARK) calls our furry four-legged friends, “Angels with Paws”, and I’ve always loved that phrase, along with our own resident angels: three frisky rescue cats, and two kissy chocolate labradors!  As an obvious animal lover, that makes this week’s ARTchix Studio art challenge a favorite with its theme of CATS. My 11-year old daughter wanted to get in on the art fun too this week, so I’ll post both of our postcard-size collages made from ARTchix goodies, and feline images rescued from old magazines, a kitten bookmark, and even one cat cutie scanned from a t-shirt!  Having fun, making art ….a purrrfect combination! (And even more wonderful with your pets closeby —here’s to all those who open their hearts to make a forever home for the countless dogs and cats awaiting adoption in the world’s overcrowded rescue shelters, and to the volunteers and donors who contribute to this very worthy cause.)
