SPA--Down on the Farm

How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
They'll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
Chickens and hats from Google Images.  Background and textures from Rucola Designs

A page from Journal 52--a Love Letter

I'm not much of a writer, but...words of love are sometimes so easy to express.
Gelli pront, paper hearts cut from printed paper, fabulous red handmade paper (I think it's paper) that's full oh holes and long fibers, and coffee filters, that are sprinkled with baking soda, sprayed with vinegar and dripped on with food coloring

I have the honor of hosting Sunday Postcard Art this week.  My theme is "Arrows".  Don't ask, I don't know. It just popped into my head.  I hope you enjoy playing with arrows this week.  Here is my piece.

The background is from a wonderful collagist named Evelyn Flint ( Digital maniacs, take note of this one--she's terrific) and the rest was done with brushes and a stamp from  a Google search.
