South Coast-Eden

Gosh, lots going on while I was away. I came home to Handmade magazine and so many of my friends are in the latest issue.

Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique has a feminine Rose design painted on a picket.
Kris from Tag Along Teddies has the most adorable Teddy named Annie Rose.
Vicki from Tozz's Corner has made a cloth doll named Miss Mipsy, (I didn't know Vicki made dolls)
Jenny from Jenny of Elefantz has made Shabby Roses Cushion.
Vikki from Sew Useful Design has designed a stitchery called "A Mother's Love".
Val from Val Laird has designed a cute bird house pin cushion. Heaps of thing to add to my "TO DO" list.

While I'm on the subject of crafty friends and blogspots I'd I've a friend that's just started blogging. Her name is Michelle from Crafty Chookie. Pop on over and check out her blogspot when you get a chance.My family and I have just come back from the South Coast. We stayed at a place called Eden and visited a lot of the towns near by Pambula, Tilba Tilba, Bermagui, Merrimbula, and I took over 400 photo's(sunrises, sunsets and lots of ideas to paint)I walked along the beach everyday.

I just couldn't believe the price of fuel!

This place was so tranquil,(Quarantine Bay) I could have stayed there for hours watching the Pelicans and the fishermen coming in from out at sea.

Hi Anna,
Thanks so much for visiting me and your sweet comment. I am very curious to hear about printing on paper and then using Impasto Gell that you mentioned. Do you adhear the paper to the wood with the gell? Sounds very interesting. Would it be possible to email me as I am really not sure what to do?
Your vacation looks wonderful and I am sure inspiring!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Have a wonderful day!

Naomi said...

Hi Anna,

Looks like you guys had a lovely break...and inspirational for your painting too. I, too love walking along the beach :) which of course is a tad to far away form home LOL
As for the fuel, Kris was, shall we say rather annoyed when we had to pay $1.35/ relatively (though much more expensive than when we left Melbourne).
Hugs, Sharon
