Welcome you to my craft room. This is where I try to spend as much time as possible creating stencilled, marbled and altered art cards and gift tags.
Unwanted furniture always catches my eye and I love to renew, refresh and revive it.

I saw this idea on Pinterest and was very keen to try it myself. A while ago I bought some lollies from a shop and they came in plastic test tubes. I was reluctant to throw the test tubes out as I knew I could do something with them. I had several attempts at this vase as I wanted to give my friend one for her birthday. The first one was a disaster!! This is the second one, which I have kept, and the third one was really lovely, so I gave it to her.
I have this hanging inside my front entrance and it encourages me to pick flowers from my garden. This flower is a rose-scented pelargonium and I have the test tube vase hanging at just the right height so you can smell the fragance as you walk past.
It is school holidays again here in Australia so that means craft time!!I had bought a wooden number 5 from the craft shop to affix near my front door. The plain wood was not going to stay! I gave it two coats of white paint and then did some paper patchwork using my pretty serviettes. The final thing was to give it two coats of Mod Podge for durability. Now when you come to my door, you will know that you are at number 5....
For ages I have been wanting to create something whimsical for my garden. Pinterest has inspired me so much that today I finally decided to do something with my old light fitting and metal garden stake. I looked around in my craft room and found these gorgeous blue glass pebbles. I have now put it in my garden and was thinking it might be lovely as a birdbath.... just not too sure how the birds will perch on the rim. I'll fill it with water anyway......
It is spring here in Sydney and it is my favourite season of the year. I love walking out into my garden and being constantly delighted by the gorgeous spring flowers. For this card, I colour-washed the background and then collaged a picture to represent the morning flowers.
