It’s a beautiful sunny winter’s day here…
And I bought a tripod for my camera, as I have a desire to take better pictures…and this is my first try with it!


day out…


….yesterday we had a day out in Byron Bay….first to see this movie, then lunch and  a visit to the lighthouse.

DSCN0564…this is the view looking north.

I love how the sun rays are shining through the clouds.


…the most easterly point of Australia…


…the view looking south towards Lennox Head!


…even though we go to Byron from time to time we hadn’t been up to the lighthouse for a lot of years.  There was lots of tourists taking pictures…the sea was very calm and there were a couple of whales, out to sea, heading north for their yearly migration.

art journal pages

…I have been working on a couple of art journal pages.

This one is to try the Ranger tissue paper I just received in the mail…

I have been wanting to try it for some time.

It seemed to wrinkle the page a little, I stuck it down with matt medium…

I will add more to this page…every page I do is learning how products work and new techniques.

I have some trouble with what to write…but I guess with practice it will begin to flow!



…And this page I did yesterday!

This fairy should be in my Joynal, but the inspiration came from the page!



And while I am working in this journal…I will show a face I did a few months ago…



books to alter…

Went to the car boot market yesterday…and this is what I found

…this small stack of old books, 2 girls annuals for altered book fun!


…and this fairy for inspiration for Jane’s Joynal online class!

…the Alice in Wonderland book to add to journal pages. But after looking

through it I may find it hard to rip up











…this is the illustration inside the front cover!
