Mother's Day Hanging Canvas

Kasha kindly demonstrated a lovely background technique from Kelly Rae Roberts' wonderful book, Taking Flight, at our last PP get together.  This was a lot of fun and today I decided to add  some pictures, paper and embellishments and give to my Mum tomorrow for Mother's Day in lieu of a card.

Birthday Art from the Paper Princesses

Here is the wonderful canvas I received for my birthday from the Paper Princesses. Each created two panels which I later glued down to the canvas I prepared prior to seeing what they had made. There were a few added embellishments added to the canvas background to fill in some empty areas. The theme was Rustic Vintage. It all came together beautifully and is proudly displayed in my lounge room for all to admire.

This cork tree was brought from England in 1861 and is believed to be one of the largest specimins in Australia.

Autumn at Tenterfield

I love the Autumn colours which are unlike what we get here at home since our climate is not as cold.

Here is my husband Beppi, standing on the rocks of the pyramid to show the size.
