An Australian trip

One of my friends has just returned back from a trip around Australia.  I sent this illustrated postcard to their address for when they arrived home.

Lulworth cove and Lyme regis

Earlier this month I paid a short visit to Lulworth cove and Lyme Regis.  The weather was very wet and grey but as I have always wanted to go it didn't put me off.  Lulworth was so pretty and inspiring with small English cottages and pretty gardens, very beautiful.  The following day I did some fossil hunting on the beach which is organised by Lyme Regis museum.

Painted florals

After looking at the amazing painted floral cakes by Natasha I had to have ago at painting straight onto paper with no drawing involved.  Here's what I did, after some playing around on Photoshop I sent a painted floral design into the Tigerprint contest.  I do need to have more practise at painting like this and it doesn't take long to do.

My final design for the Tigerprint contest

There are an enormous amount of design entering in this contest so I am  not expecting anything from it but it is all good practise.  It is difficult to pick a favourite out as there are so many good ones and I assume it is going to be a difficult task for the judges. See all the entries here  Here a few of my favourites that stand out for me but there are so many to choose from.
