Haunted

O M Goodness….. Hallowe’en starts here! I’m sooooo excited to be having yet another 5 week’s of Hallowe’en themes here on SPA. And even more excited to have Kris Dickinson as our host for the WHOLE month. She’s so awesomely wonderfully creative.  Kris has a blog which is here   AND Kris has an amazingly fantastical HALLOWE’EN BLOG

So onwards with our theme, which this week is HAUNTED ~ quite an open-ended theme… can’t WAIT to see your creations! Remember to make it a 6 x 4″ postcard and leave us a comment with a link to your work. If your comment goes to spam, contact me at saucy_angel18@hotmail.com ~ I’ll rectify it for you 🙂

Bohemian

Don’t you just love the word ‘bohemian’? it brings to mind a life of carefree living and freedom.

here is part of the definition from wikipediaBohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, or literary pursuits.

My first thoughts for this theme were gypsies, rich gorgeous colours mixed with gold.

Can’t wait to see what YOU come up with!

Here’s mine

To join in with us, all you need to do is make a postcard size piece of art ~ we like it to be 6 x 4 inches in size using the above theme as a prompt, upload it to your blog/flickr/photo sharing site and then leave a comment with the link to your work.

Thanks for looking and playing

Flappers

This week we’re heading back to the 1920’s to meet that ‘new breed’ of women known as Flappers.  They bobbed their hair, wore short skirts and generally went against what was considered to be acceptable behaviour for women in that period. We’d love to see your postcards celebrating this period; remember all mediums are welcome just make your piece 6″ x 4″ in size.

Memories

Like the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories
Of the way we were

This is most definitely the song that pops into my mind when I hear the word ‘MEMORIES’ ~ have just googled it and there’s a plethora of songs with the title memories.  Hopefully, you have find it inspiring to play along 🙂

This week we chose ‘memories’ because in the US they are celebrating Grandparents Day … which is so cute I  think 🙂

Enjoy making your postcard!
