Update on the Extension

This photo shows the rear of the extension from up the garden path (where I spend a lot of my time LOL).
Next photo is of the front of the house.
This photo is a closer view of the rear of the extension, Steve has even done some cladding in amongst the prescribed burns that the local Volunteer Fire Brigade has been doing.
And this photo is of a bobtail or Blue Tongue Skink that I happened upon whilst up the garden path taking photos! Lots of these guys coming out from their winter hibernation, wandering into the sunshine. If you live in WA watch out for these guys on the road and try your best not to squash them!

Thanks for visiting.

Yep, the roof is on the house (as it should be I hear you say!). I will take a photo and upload over the weekend - too early and cold to go outside at the moment. The roof being on means that we can start putting the external cladding on and we're no longer restricted by what Mother Nature throws at us - yippeee!

A little more fun on the wing

In a previous post I mentioned Linda B's blog and her great YouTube tutes. Well, yesterday I had a chance to play with the first tute using acrylic paint, gold foil, fusable film and foil (no surprise I had everything in my stash!) I've also stamped the large butterfly from MADJAK stamps with Staz On and added some 7gypsies tape to the side. Not sure if I'm needing to add words. I think I'll put it up somewhere for a little while and something will come to me. I had great fun doing this and I didn't waste any of the paint the you scrape off as I've taken to having a couple of small canvases and journals handy and I wipe off any excess paint onto these as well as stamping off the stamps onto the journal pages to creat interesting backgrounds.

This card is in the same style as the one from the previous post and once again made for a friends birthday.
Thanks for visiting and hope your gettin' inky today.
