Creating Collages - Layer Upon Layer

One of my most favourite things to do in my studio
is to pull out my baskets of tiny bits
of vintage lace and doilies
as well as little bits
of precious
fabric
 


too special to throw away
and create some of these little collaged beauties.

 

 Many of these tiny pre-rephaelite images
lend themselves to be adorned
with special silk fibres, textures
and vintage laces
with embellishments.

 

I was also able to incorporate 
some of my Logan berry died laces
I created a little while black 


 

along with some of my eco-dyed silks
which I often felt to give a soft gathered look and feel. 
 










 The textures work so well together when used like this!

More berry dyed doilies with sari ribbon,
mother of pearl buttons
and crushed velvet! 


 I listed these in my Etsy shop.
They have sold pretty fast, however, if you would like
to own one there are still a couple left.
So you can take a peek in my
if you like!!!

Thank you all so much for visiting and I wish you all a promising
week of creative love and inspiration!

Restocking my Etsy shop!

Having been absent from my
Etsy shop now for 
several months
and pondering which way forward
would be the right way for me,
in light of their newly
introduced payment platform,
I decided that this is still the best selling platform 
for my artwork
so
recently listed are these new Vintage collaged tags

 
 

These large tags have been created from
many different pieces of vintage cotton lace,
dyed doilies, vintage fabrics,
lace fabrics onto a tag.

 

Very often you want to give something more than a card
as a gift and this could be that alternative!





 

 
So if this is your thing then pop over to my Etsy
to see what may interest you there!
I'm hoping to list a couple of my little fabric and ephemera books
there shortly so keep checking!
And
thank you always for visiting me here and leaving
kind comments! They are so welcomed!
Enjoy your week!

The Light of Spring!

  Blooming, blossoming, breezy,
renewal, rejuvinating and refreshing
are words coming to mind
for me right now
as we transition from a very cold winter 
here in Australia



 


 




 to the season of Spring, new life, blue skies



 


new growth everywhere and new bird song
 is promising us
 it really is just around the corner!



 


and this is my tribute to this new season!


 

So many thoughts and feelings
shining through this little book making us
feel truly alive and loved!

 














 









We truly are looking forward to sitting under a tree, 
reading a book,
listening to the bees,
watching the fish jump in our lake, 
kayaking in the warm water
and 
watching the honeyeaters steel their nectar!
Just some of the things which bring contentment!
Bliss oh joy!

Love to you all!

Coastal Walk with Magnificent Scenery

As this morning was such a beautiful, clear and sunny
Sunday my DH, Jeff, Lilly,
 our 14year old poodle and I
took a glorious walk through coastal bushland
to a headland out to sea not far
from where we live
on
the far south coast of Australia.


As there was no one else around
we had the whole walk to ourselves!
 



Little paths off the main track led us to
amazing views of the coastal beaches!

 


You can see where the name "Sapphire Coast"
derives it's name from!

 















Steep cliffs dropping into the sea like these:

 






Wind swept trees!
 




And this is what we saw when we arrived 
at the headland!
 














 And the walk back through the bush
with the Melaluca trees leaning into each other!















Feeling very blessed to be living so close to such
an amazing rugged coastland along the 
far south east coast of Australia!
 
Thank you all for coming along this walk with me
and wish you all a wonderful day!
