TAKE A WORD
This is so tongue in cheek I might never see it again (my tongue) .. and it's so cliched I'm almost but not quite embarrassed. It's my salute to Australia and to a certain person who keeps us out of trouble and off the streets by setting us a weekly theme at her Take a Word challenge.
Just the other day I was talking to Dame Edna and she told me that the colours in Oz are remarkable for their vibrancy and the sun almost always shines. There are kangeroos and little joeys everywhere and people swim and surf all the time, whilst keeping a weather eye out for the crocs, of course, and everyone says G'day and then they throw another prawn on the barbie. I was so inspired I set to work immediately and added a few extra special bits for Miss Ozstuff herself .. not least my 'Maude' postage stamp because I know how much she likes to make vintage art.
First and foremost credit to my daughter (as the body of Australia is made up from part of an 'aboriginal' painting she made one year for me for Mother's day), thanks to Honey Designs for the stamp template, and Efie from her blogspot freebies for most of the remainder. Thank you to Obsidian Dawn for the brushes.
Thank you for looking and taking the time to comment.
