Hopes & Dreams

"There is a world where hope and dreams can last for all times."Ariel

Happy Sky Watch Friday my friends, click the link to see what bloggers from all over have found in their skies to share this week.  Have been busy with a few projects the last few weeks, taking up new roles with the Craft and Hobby Association Designers Group and launching new on line workshops including this one on textures called Bricks and Stones.

Whatevers is a challenge site hosted by 3 creative friends Cat Scanlon, Vicki Chrisman, Nat Kalbach,  to celebrate found photos and the stories that could be told.    My creation is Charles and Chelsea which started here  
This edition is titled the colourful world down under.

Dearest Charles,
We have been motoring across the countryside and our timing could not have been better, the desert wildflowers are in bloom everywhere.  The hills are a rainbow of bright vivid hues of every colour.  Catherine has been sketching the many pretty flowers.  Tomorrow we are travelling on the city of Grafton for their famous Jacaranda festival in a blaze of purple.
Write more when we get there! 
Found photos of weddings, babies, or young people going off to war are often for sale at jumble stalls and antique centres.  Rich with details of fashion or landscapes that have changed and vintage automobiles, but sadly with no voice to tell their stories.  Do you ever wonder, who are these people and what is their story? Click the link to the Whatevers and see how some of collaborating creatives are taking their stories, everyone is welcome to join in.

The flowers on this page are cut from Catherine Scanlon’s Art Journal Coloring Book.
