The true harvest of life is is in the tints of the morning and is in the stardust caught...a segment of the rainbow.

Vintage Wallpaper

These three cards are all made with a background technique called Vintage Wallpaper, inspired by the Technique Junkies newsletter. I love the soft vintage feel of this background, hope you do too.

I made a few cards yesterday, one with my new stamp "Girl on a Swing from Fay at Port Macquarie. I love this image, it feels so lovely and free.
The other card is one which I made for the "Little Girl Theme" on Boomerang.


Just a few pics of my art doll which I previously posted. I decided that she needed a little "adjusting" and thought that I had better take some pics. At the Luncheon in Sydney last week, Anne proposed a "one for one" art doll swap and my doll along with Anne's and Linda's was one of the links for ideas etc, so thought I had better put the pictures up. Have fun with it girls, even if it's a little out of your comfort zone. :)


We have just completed another wonderfully creative weekend at Lemon Tree Passage with the lovely and very talented Joy Bathie. From Friday night until Sunday afternoon, we were totally immersed in creating beautiful books and binding them, inspired by Joy's wonderful Mixed Media art books. I will post just a few pics of the weekend and a couple of pages of inspiration, some of us are still finishing our books and I'll post pics when they are completed. Pictures above show some of Joy's beautiful pages and after completing their pages, a lovely and innovative way of binding them which needed much concentration as seen on the girl's faces.
