Marlene's birthday art

This canvas was covered like Kasha's below, using the back as the front to allow a window space. The wing of the owl lifts to reveal a nest. There is a discreet hanger attached on the back to allow almost flush hanging.

Wax was used to finish.

Kasha's birthday art

This canvas was covered on the front so I could use the back as a window, hence the back is the front and front is the back! Beeswax was applied all over to finish. The theme was fun and perfect for my dear friend Kasha.

Birthday art wrapped

I made these gift bags and used some of the transparency I made to frame the lovely vintage photos. Inside, the gifts were wrapped with old music, map and dressmaker pattern papers.

Here are the birthday girls, Marlene and Kasha on the right.

Card for Dad

My father turned 75 last week. My brother and I gave him a hot air balloon ride from Byron Bay Ballooning. Here is the pull out pocket card I made to insert the voucher.

My Bird Swap Mobile

With some found sticks I assembled a mobile and attached all 9 birds. This was quite a challenge to get them to hang straight and balanced, but it looks great hanging in my stamp room.

Recent cards

Here are a few I've made recently for friends.
