Happy Australia Day!

January 26th 2013


Today is Australia Day - so to all my fellow "Aussies" - have a great day - we get Monday as a Public Holiday in lieu of Australia Day being on a Saturday - so a long weekend!!

Today I am sharing my first ever Journal Page using a great "Aussie Koala" image from Angie Delarie Scrapbooking (an Australian Designer!!!!) Make sure you check out Angie's Etsy Store for some more fantastic Aussie images along with a whole range of other great designs! And some very exciting news is that I have just joined Angie's Design Team so I will be sharing lots of creations using Angie's Designs!!! If you visit the Angie Delarie Scrapbooking Blog you can see the new releases for February and also some more "Aussie" flavour creations!!


I based my background on techniques/ideas from Kate Crane's Art Journalling DVD 1 & 2 - wow love these - so I just had to buy volumes 3 & 4 too (found a stockist in Australia)!!! I used a great set of Alphabet Stamps I got for Xmas, grass & leaves die cuts. And I did some journalling and added some of the words to the Australian Anthem. I had so much fun doing this page!


How much can a koala bear???  LOL!!!

I love your first journal page!!! That Koala is too cute! I love your layering. I too have just completed my first art journal and it was great fun to do. It's on my blog if you want to check it out. The news here in the US is saying that Southern Australia is suffering from horrible fires so I hope you are safe from the flames!!!
