Pipistrello

I don't do coloring books,
the images are way too big for
me to "handle" , but then I saw
this book with Jasmine Becket-Griffith
and I knew I wanted to try.
Gorgeous images!


Here's the first image, I colored her with Prismacolors
and then altered the photo with Ribbet.

Please link your art HERE,
this month there is a change to win
this die:
 I grabbed some of my scraps the other night
and played with my die, :).


As Kim so well said it:
To win it ya gotta be in it!

And lets see what Anne has for our delight:

To never...

Insist people respect your body - if your child doesn't want to hug Uncle Bob or Aunty Jane, don't force them, teach them they are in control of what is done with their body 
and back them up every time.  Otherwise, maybe...
Gallows stamp ButterSide Down
Text die Spellbinders sent me instead of what I really ordered - not my scene, but I've put my own spin on it now!

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.

Blank Page Muse for Coin backs, moon, witches
Vivalasvegas for devil, biker bear
