I couldn't sleep last night for some reason so I gave up and started the day VERY early (especially for a Sunday)! Flagging a bit now but it has been a good day. I made this canvas board for Kasha - she is my Art of the Month partner again this month. I got to use my new Fiskars Border punch (Treading Water) on the roof section - I really do love scalloped edges and the little holes add a little something. I think I may have gone a little overboard on the floral embellishments...and I have just realised that I used the same flowers on last month's quilted wall hanger! See what happens when I leave stuff out on my desk - I actually use it. I also used my not-that-new but previously unused little blue wired leaves - I've been saving them as they are so gorgeous but I am trying to practice thinking abundance!
This is what the background looked like before I started collaging. I painted it first (dark green), then dry-brushed it with white before sponging on inks and stamping etc. I love this script image - it is from the new Oxford Impressions range.
And for a bit of variety here are some photos of scenes around Leonora (two and a half hours drive north of Kalgoorlie) taken this month after lots of rain - everything is so much greener than usual for this time of year. And the dam has a lot of water in it! Several of the shots are taken from the top of a small hill.
