Altered Frames

I have been working on this collection of frames for a while and finally they are done! I sanded the frames and painted them white. Then I created little works of art to go inside the frames using paper, flowers and pictures of vintage ladies. The frames are now hanging in a group on my bedroom wall.

Pretty Vintage

Here are a selections of layouts I've made recently. I love the pretty papers and paper flowers.

And forget not that the Earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair" 

by Kahlil Gibran. I think it goes well with the photo.  I flipped the sketch on the side. Here is the link for their blog post:

Barwon Heads

I feel very blessed to live near the coast. I love the sea, especially in winter; it is so fierce and alive. These photos were taken on a sunny day from the lookout on the Barwon Heads bluff. I love the sun shinning on the water.

This is a sketch from Anna’s Craft Cupboard blog (
