Puzzle Piece 1 of 16

I bought this giant floor puzzle about 18 months ago at the Antique store in Mornington.
I have been collecting French themed bits for ages and have finally competed 1 piece!

Collab House Book - Asian

Asian really isn't my "thing" but that is the great thing about this swap - not everyones theme is your cup of tea, so it stretches your creativity. I think the dragon page was my biggest test yet. Dragons CERTAINLY ARE NOT my thing! Still once I found an image I could work with.....

As you know I received my Kelly Rae Roberts book this week and have been itching to try out some of the techniques. Yesterday I bought some more golden fluids -for my classes next year, and also bought a couple of shriva sticks. The latter are just divine - will have to get me more of those!
Anyway the top photo is my Asian collage completed. The background paper was very bright greens and I also added some text collage and other collage papers. Covered them in golden fluids and shriva sticks and you have the image to the left. After I scanned it I thought it looked a little unfinished, so I added a metal corner to the roof peak, and went around the children with while gel pen. I just thought that they were blending a little too much with the background...

Collab Book - French Theme

A page for the lovely Sarah!

Sleeping Beauty

This was taken last night. It was quite warm and Missy made herself very comfy on the couch!

Yippee Summer is coming

Oh it's starting to warm up at last.

Look at my wisteria, isn't it divine! And the perfume is heavenly. I wish I could share it with you too!

It has never flowered like this before!

arty_oz Collab Book

Well it's over for another year... 31 pages. Had a busy but fun day at Teresa's yesterday. She had designed a fabulous fabric cover and there were 6 of us working in various shifts creating 62 covers (31 sets).

Well done everyone, especially Teresa for pulling it all together! Teresa is a working Mum with 3 young children, where she finds the time!

My favourite Page from the talented Sarah! Apparently it took her 3 weeks to make these. I could believe it - so many "bits". Absolutely stunning!
