tmta - "newspaper / zeitungen"

i decided to take "newspaper" as the new theme for tmta. i am often dyeing book pages etc on newspaper spread over the table... the ink soaks into the newspaper and it often gives nice mixtures of color... so it came to this background...

auf das thema "zeitungen" bin ich gekommen, weil ich oft alte buchseiten einfärbe und dabei zeitungen als unterlagen verwende... oft ergibt sich durch die tinte eine schöne farbmischung, so ist auch der hintergrund der ersten atc hier entstanden...




my second atc shows a newspaper boy, who were the main distributors of newspapers to the general public from the mid-19th to the early 20th century.

die zweite atc zeigt einen zeitungsjungen: diese jungs waren die hauptverteiler der zeitungen mitte des 19. jh bis in die 20er jahre des letzten jh.

  5. Both ATC's are beautiful. The colors applied to the newspaper are really nice. That little boy image is adorable...the papers are probably heavier than he is :)
    Hugs, Gayle.
