artwords [indulgence]

while i was visiting audrey's and lia's blogs, i discovered this newly formed art group called, artwords . this was recently started by susan. every sunday, one word of inspiration is given and from that, you are supposed to create a piece of art based on the given word. this, of course, appealed to me and so now i'm attempting to catch the tail end of this week's challenge, which is indulgence. many words in a given language have multiple meanings. and indulgence is no different. the meaning that i was inspired by was the first one i read in my copy of [webster's universal college dictionary]: (n.)1. the act or practice of indulging; humoring. the quote came from an actual vintage postcard i just recently acquired for a mere .50 usd. i copied the quote in my computer and then printed it on cream cardstock. the couple image also came from a vintage postcard [gotten for the same price as above] which i basically cut out, as you can see. scraps of coordinating paper, along with some stickers, alpha stamper, and vintage clip art were all used for this piece, which measures approx. 3"x5". this was fun to make>>>and how lucky was i to have gotten these two postcards to get me going... i will most definitely be back for more artwords, thanks to the amazing gals up above! :) Posted by Picasa
