This week there isn't a great deal happening. In fact there's more going on my head, bothering myself about what to do for the PIF, but I'm hoping that something will eeeeemeeerrrge.
What you see this week is the beginning of some ideas around the Olde Post Card stamp I bought recently - some travel themes from amongst the rest of my stamps and other accoutrements.
I've been playing with the brayer, a film strip stamp and a tyre tread stamp today. I want to include some real photos of my own, and there is also a vintage camera stamp in the drawer that has potential. Watch this space, as they say.
Thought I'd share a couple of garden pictures. It's very pretty at the moment with lots of Australian native plants in flower at this time and the deciduous trees showing great colour this year. The previous owners planted crepe myrtles, Mongolian Pears (no fruit) along the drive, and a couple of ornamental cherries. Because of better rain this year after ten years of drought, there are more sugars in the leaves. The cold weather has made the sugars create more intense pigments in the leaves so it's been more showy. Not so good when we have drought years.
