Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

5 creations for the Easter weekend

I have busily been creating over the past couple of weeks and have finally scanned these for this blog.....

My Mixed Media classes with Rebecca Vavic at CIT Canberra have finished but they have whetted my appetite for more to come.... I only hope I wasn't too much of a pain Rebecca in the class! If I was - sorry honey.....

I loved learning new techniques and want to do some big canvases very soon.... with words - love words on canvases.... and a fair bit of humour too...... can't take life too seriously .......

So here are a few of my creations.....

I love this piece it is about mothers and daughters and the unbreakable bond we have. I feel that with Jessica, she is forthright, delightful, and her own person. Yet at 27 the bond we have is very tangible and I hope will always be!!

I have to confess that I found this a bit difficult. Not the faces but more that I am not sure I really like this..... but I tried a few new things - crackle, beeswax finish and some shading (back to floating colour - and folk art painting days)..... I do like those wings.

Isn't this cute..... it says....
Love is a gentle touch when the world is too busy to take the time.
I thought these little elephants were so sweet

Given to Kerryn's Collection

I sort of like the irreverent humour in this - the dogs are from a card and I love the look on Biff's face as he sees an angel. I just thought it was a funny take!

This was rather fun - I am loving using my scrapping supplies to create onto mixed media pieces... they blend so well together.

I hope you enjoy them and I look forward to you visiting here and commenting....... I will be popping in to other blogs too...... I love seeing what people are creating, in this world of mixed media.



  1. Hi Carol, thanks for visiting my blog :) I love all the mixed media pieces you have been creating!! especially loving the one with the two girls with wings - it's beautiful and I look forward to seeing more!

  2. Thanks for visiting mine, too, because it has led me to yours. It seems to me that when bloggers have more than a couple of blogs a lot of their work goes unnoticed because people simply don't find it. Can't believe that there is all this beautiful work here with only one comment. I will watch out for you in the future. (From fellow Aussie, Marie, in Perth).

  3. Your doing great - you're so talented - love the one about the little boy with the bat and ball - it so reminds me of Corey...Melxx
