Jumping on the Bandwagon

It's so easy to See no evil, Hear no evil, maybe even Speak no evil.
AND... we are becoming very PC-aware, even scared to speak at all lest we offend some minority.  BUT... there is one Speak that has arisen very publicly lately, so here's my spin on the #Metoo Movement:

The sweet little angel skeleton is from Mad Rat Rubber Stamps.  (oops, did I just use that word "sweet"???)
All others are from Lost Coast Designs

Please feed my darkness: add your sooo not-cute, dark art with the linky to 1 September post (if I got it right!), and one of you will get some ghoulappy mail :)

September 1 - First Day of Spring

So let's have a sunny day, and a magical forest where flu turns to bronchitis, and the bronchial inmates warp these trees as an "art technique" called bonsai.
Looks quite pretty by day, but tonight... these trees are walkin' to a different part of town.

Alas, poor Asylum Anne has stepped into a different darkness, engendered by crazy installations incorporating white fluids, bodily fluids, scungy rags, strange smells and places of rectal torture!

Hopefully she will be back in her own home soon, and able to mess with more congenial supplies soon.

EEEEKKK! Poor Anne, I wish her speedy trip back home
and strength with all the green stuff - inside and outside 
the house...

It might be spring down under, but it certainly starts
feeling like Autumn here up north. 
No more light nights, now it's time for a moon lights
and dark and darker and darker...

I saw this saying somewhere in the web,
and it stayed in my head

Full Moon Mood

Clown stamps are from a happy mail far far away,
and all the rest of the stamps are from
The Blank Page Muse Stamps,
like this and these.
Little paint, inks, embossing and lots of Gansai Tampi 
shining colors.

This month I made a digital canvas to share.

The Lady in the Lake

So Happy Spring!! hehehe
From all of us, thanks so much for hopping over each month to check out what's going on in these odd brains  during these weird days we find ourselves in!

C'mon back and share some eye & mind candy with us won't you?  BECAUSE ANNE IS SCRAPING THE ASYLUM FOR SOMETHING SPECIAL TO PASS ON!

Ancestral DNA search

So, Asylum Anne has been indulging in some psych "research" looking into the past.  So far her closetted family tree has revealed these characters:

Anne has rarely managed to get an ATC details back stamped evenly on an ATC, so she is delighted that these ATC coin back stamps from Blank Page Muse as slrightly smaller, giving a chance to cut out with a ragged pair of scissors, ink the edges and still fit the coin's back.

Vivalasvegas for devil, biker bear

Engraving Art

I was visiting a craft store and I saw these 
Engraving Art thinkys there...

My kids has done these sometime, when they
were younger, but I never tried one.
So I thought why not, ;=D

So I bought one and scratched it a while:

and matted it with a golden cardstock

and made it a card, don't think this scratching will be my 
thing to do, but hey, now I know, LOL.

Let us see what you've been doing (not the cuties thought),
by linking your art HERE, for a change to win these fab
FinnStamper stamps.

August already? For pity's sake where on Earth did July go???!?!?!?!?

This morning in my garden I saw

No wonder I haven't seen any butterflies, these guys must
have EATEN all the colorful and lovely species...


Meantime, Asylum Anne has been empathising with those stuck in darkness for days on end and created a "Commemorative Bottle" that, now monsoon is upon them, may well have floated out of the Tham Luang cave system with a sadder outcome..
Tar gel and alcohol inks drizzled inside, stamps from Rubber Dance fishy sets  on the outside.
The fragile mesh of life, and the glow-in-dark thread of the rescuers guide ropes.  People glued at intervals to the mesh right down to the bottom of the bottle, where a skull represents the Thai navy seal that died.
Outside embellished with paper, embossing powder, crackle medium, shells etc
 Text "Thai caving" around the top
 Safety helmets & bling for the rescuers bringing them back into lightness


These FinnStamper clear stamps might be flying on 
your way if the you link your art down below,
it's anything goes - but not the cuties.
