WS: Icons


A collage made for my sister Blanche who found out a few weeks ago that she is pregnant and for the new ICONS WS challenge.  I looooove creating icons, yet there’s no religious aspect in mine. I also enjoy creating different kinds of halos, see the one below!  *** Eine Collage gemacht für meine Schwester Blanche, die vor ein paar Wochen erfahren hat, dass sie schwanger ist und für die neue MS-Herausforderung IKONEN. Mach auch totaaaal gerne Ikonen, doch keine religiöse, sondern zeitgenössische. Besonders gerne mach ich andere Heiligenscheine, so wie der unten z.B.


And another one, a painted canvas as a gift for a friend who loves skulls as much as I do! 🙂  *** Hab noch eins, eine Leinwand als Geschenk für eine Freundin bemalt, die genauso wie ich auf  Totenköpfe steht.

  14. Hi Bella!
    Ach, wie schöööön! Hab die oberste Collage gesehen und gedacht: Klasse… und die Blumen… so schön… da wurde sie wohl auf Bali inspiriert. Den dicken Bauch der Frau hab ich gar nicht bemerkt… hihi Und dann lese ich den Text… DANKE, so süss von dir… (hab sogar feuchte Augen gekriegt.)
    Ich drück dich ganz doll,

  15. Hab vergesssen zu sagen, dass ich das 2. Bild auch klasse finde. Die Augen in den Haaren des Skelettes sind lustig… sind doch Haare, oder? :o)
