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!

Fairytale Cards and a New Book in the Making

I recently used these two beautiful Arthur Rackham images
which I edited and incorporated into these large
cards as gifts to friends.

 

They really take you away riding on the wings
of angels!
I adore the works of this famous Childrens Illustrator,
Arthur Rackham!
 

 On my table at the moment are the materials,
thoughts, words and feelings for a new
book I've entitled
"Fragile Heart"

 



How many of you feel you can relate to these words?

Hoping to share the finished pages and book soon
but 
I just wanted to remind you all that if you would like to
take advantage of a 50% discount on the
workshop where I teach my book techniques
then just pop over to Creative Workshops to read all about it 
 as there are only two days left
to enrol at this discounted price.
Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday
and
thank you all for continuing to leave such kind comments here.

SALE at Creative Workshops - My Book "Peaceful and Pondering"!

Dear friends
it is so wonderful to know that there is still
so much interest in my book making style
and 
how I use all the wonderful elements
including vintage fabrics, laces, doilies, threads, buttons, papers,
sari silk ribbon, rusty findings etc. etc. 
to create
a journal for you to create in.

  

 




 


 I show you how to collect images, enhance them,
how to lay out your pages,
how to collage your images into pages
manipulating and layering fabrics and laces
as you go




 


and then how to place them into signatures for
binding into a book.

 




You have the option of using your unique style
to produce just the book that pleases you
with your own images and own materials.

inspire you too!
