Hello and a warm welcome on this ist day of April. Beautiful weather here is Australia, a perfect Autumn day . A favourite time of the year for me.

PEACE    7 April LO peace Best 1As most of you are aware, I am a nature lover and today I have a layout in the blues and greens showcasing a cluster of glorious driftwood, seaweed and fungus I found on the edge of the ocean on one of our road trips along the Great Ocean Road, a glorious, rugged open ocean, scenic drive along the coast of Victoria, right down the bottom of Australia. 7 April LO layers 2    I have stacked lots of paper Layering, with clusters of chipboard and blooms. The altered key on the heart echoes how nature truly opens my heart, and sends love flowing through my veins. The entire cluster is tied together with cotton string. Looking deep into nature fascinates and intrigues me . Such intimate detail and captivating elements and tiny living organisms on this rich green piece of fungus. There were tiny little insects moving around through the moist green weed , too small for my camera to detect. Nature holds such beauty everywhere.7 April LO layers 4       a closer view of the chipboard title . this is inked in Bamboo Versacolor ink and when dry I dry brushed some white gesso across the word to bring out the texture. 7 April LO layers string 6      a view from the side . here you can see the layers of altered metal, diecut leaves and shapes. I love to raise the photo above the layering to bring the focus to the eye..

7 April LO layers 5     looking  closer at the cluster from the left side of the photo. paper, leaves, chipboard small tiny elegant branches and tiny roses all complete the cluster . these papers give me so much delight and they also have so much woven into each design… wonderful work Marie on each collection.

    Heather, I so enjoyed your creation! I have difficulty knowing how to design nature layouts and so few people do them, sadly. Thank you for inspiring me to get those nature photographs scrapped!
