I went on a little walk last night and brought along some shadow people stickers I made to play with the shadows outside.

Curious how you make such detailed shadow people stickers?

Gina said...

Your artistic creativity is so inspiring! Your posts and photos always make me smile and think, "Why can't I think of darling ideas like that?"

vestidadedomingo said...

Beautiful pictures. They seem of a small world

Lindsay Kay said...

You are altogether too fabulous in your creativity! Love it!

colormekatie said...

@Just me- These are all people from my pictures! For example, the people in the first picture is the couple from this photo-

http://www.flickr.com/photos/katesokoler/4357543759/in/set-72157621190753548/

I just paint the background white in photoshop, then I select the people and paint them black. I print them out and then just cut out the shapes!

This is what they look like on the sheet of paper before I cut them out-

Hi!!

I commented yesterday about how I was amused that I'm not the only one whose living space is infiltrated by craft materials!! It was really somewhat touching when I saw your picture working on your thought bubbles. I wrote about it in my blog. Just thought you'd like to know: http://the-art-department.blogspot.com/2010/05/color-me-kismet.html

Victoria :-)

P.S. Of course, I love these pictures as well!! :-)
