My interests vary from time to time but I remain very much a beginner in the art world, whether it's quilting, drawing, sketching, digital graphics art, painting, photography, zentangling, hand made cards or any other art form. But I keep trying... Here's my bag of information on Where to Go, What to Do and How to Do It. Hence the title: My Art Bag.

Sunday Postcard Art - Postage Stamp People


This was an interesting challenge, one I haven't done before - or for that matter, even heard about.  The challenge this week at Sunday Postcard Art is Postage Stamp People.  The piece ABOVE is my entry and I think I've done it correctly.

Okay, so since this was a new one on me, I had to figure out with a little research what Postage Stamp People were!  I loved the samples I found and the collage below is what I made at first. 

But this morning after looking at more Postage Stamp People art when I followed the links at Sunday Postcard Art to Marion's works, I realized I should have a real stamp with a face and add a body to that stamp that flows down nicely.

So I pulled up my first try, which is below, and kept the Abe Lincoln face on the stamp and worked it so that he and my cowboy fit together nicely.  Interesting, huh?  I liked this challenge!  😊



Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time...
