welcome to march - i do believe it is autumn down under....
Welcome to March - I do believe that April is trying to push her way in but she will have to be patient.
We are still flat out here but making progress. A new shipment of Acrylic Wax finally arrived today - this is one of our most popular products and one I love to use - today I have been mixing the Magical Micas in withsome Acrylic Wax to paint with - oh so yummy. I have also been playing with new Starburst Colour Shots - they are not here yet but I have a couple - the same Starburst as the sprays but in a jar - you can add anything to the jar but I have added textile medium and painted on fabric for testing. Very effective - I have been working with colours in the Paris theme which Jacinta has been dyeing - the silk hand threads arrived today - I am gathering my resources but all I need is time to play with them. Maybe next week.
I thought I would share some pics of the banksia tree in our front garden - it is just coming into flower - the birds adore it and spend ages pottering around.
The newsletter is nearly ready to send out and tomorrow I shall be preparing for my embellisher lesson I am teaching Thursday morning at Janome. I hear it is full - I shall have to make my kits up in the morning.
