More this and that
I've started to add more button and fabric kits to my Etsy site. I'll be adding more shortly.
I'm not sure if I'm going to add more to this page background or not, the minimalist, which hardly ever rears it's head in my presence, says no, but we'll see.
This is a test page for some of my stamps.
These are more pages from my book made from scrap paper, envelopes, old catalogues and brochures. I love the way you can see so many layers due to the different sizes of paper. This will be a work in progress for awhile. I like to add cards and their envelopes, especially if they have overseas stamps and postmarks.
Above is a stamp I carved for myself, I love patterns and this one is so versatile. I've used it here with acrylic paint. These papers are for a new larger journal that I hope to have on my Etsy soon.
I finally remembered to take my camera with me on my walk today. We pass this row of magnificent Eucalyptus ficifolias or flowering gums and every time I forget to take the camera. I remembered today. The colours are so intense from shades of orange, red, pinks even magentas. It's a native of Western Australia, but luckily it grows in the other states too. The bees get drunk on the nectar, there's a constant buzz when you stand under the tree. You can even see a couple in the close up photo.
