Travels Have Come To An End!

Hello, hello .... I am back in the land of Aus and ready to get crafting again. I had a wonderful time travelling the globe. Firstly I went to Surabaya, Indonesia on a school trip which was amazing. I even managed to find a scrapbook shop or two there! Ten days after returning to WA my mum and I set off for England. We had a marvellous time travelling around England and Scotland and we managed to clock up over 5000 miles (8000kms). There was even a side trip to Holland to visit my aunt, uncle and cousins which was lovely.

One of the many highlights was taking part in a two day abstract art course at the Newlyn School of Art. I had a fabulous time and learnt a lot. This is one of pieces that I painted there.

There were many other great parts of our British holiday which included visiting family, driving through the Yorkshire Dales and the Cotswolds, making new friends (hello Debra), visiting friends (hello Marita), visiting the Derwent pencil factory (yes I know I'm a nerd!), going to two craft shows and visiting Leandra at the Paper Artsy headquarters. What I did miss though was my 3 males and my craft room. Luckily I indulged and bought a lot of craft supplies and even tried to create a time or two. This is one page I created using Paper Artsy paints.
When I got home I got the urge to sort my craft room - wrong urge for sure as it is in such a sad state at the moment but when I have organised it and tidied it I shall take a few photos and let you all have a look. I did flick through my journals and found some pages that I am proud of that I haven't shown before so here goes . . .

This one was the start to my owl canvas range.

Today I was back at Made With Memories teaching my art journaling class. Today's page was a Christmas inspired piece . . . 

Our previous month's page was this one.

Well that about does my update for now. I am planning on making some more videos which will be uploaded soon so stay tuned.
Bye for now,
