Adventure Ahoy 2019

In September 2019 I went across to the far south east coast of NSW to bird watch non-stop. Except there was one stop - a 3 day trip away to Lakes Entrance in Victoria, where one afternoon I went out on a Eco tourist boat and took some amazing photos and bird photos and totally enjoyed the experience. So when I saw the Kraft Plus comp for October 2019 I was itching to use this experience as my theme.

Sooooo Happy 2019 Sept

I have mega achieved! After 4 years of Step Into Life in Wodonga the trainer (who has done 12 years) called it quits and gave us 2 weeks notice. yikes! Then my Uncle (who isn't) passed away after a long amazing life for amazing person. And somehow, I coped - I more than coped - I shone. Frank will always be with me. I'm happy for my trainer that now she isn't tied down and can have a normal life. And I've found a new trainer to try and been to 2 sesions now with her. This is a mega achievement for me.

So when I saw this Kraft+ challenge :

I thought - great - a way to show my mega achievement. So I went straight into the bathroom after training and took this pic and created this page:

My kind of Soup Winter July 2018

It's hard to take in such a colourful inspiration in Winter in Australia, but that was my challenge with the Archiscraps July 2018 scrapbooking inspiro. So all I could think of of doing a page that would warm me up; what do I do in Winter that I could use these bold colours on? So, for the first time in my scrapping life, I scrapped about my soup making skills. Its so natural to me, it doesn't normally register as a skill.

But ever since I moved out of home, I've been making my own soup my way, throughout winter. I love pumpkin and sweet potato, and usually add something like cauliflower to make it go a bit further. I dice and slice vegetables and boil them, and then add my dry soup mix which forms a base, together with Paprika. I never use soup mixes like cup a soup or anything with croutons or strong flavours like asian or chilli. They are usually just too concentrated or have too much added salt or sugar for me.

I loved placing this bold colours together on my page, and for the first time ever, taking stage photos of my soup making process!

Country Girl Jun 2018

Although I loved the inspiration painting for the June 2018 Artastic challenge I struggled to balance the colours on my page effectively. Still not happy with it after hours of trying!

But, its still a page!

Seal of approval Jun 2018

When I paint, I really don't think much about why I'm painting what I'm painting, why I've decided on that topic, why I've decided to paint it in that way instead of the like the inspiration scene or photo. But when I finish it feels right and exactly what I was looking for. So this is what I did my page on - my recent artwork and the photos that inspired them. I even shocked myself how different they are!

CSI #255 challenge
The dreamy colours for the CSI #255 were hard to ignore. I just had to do a page with them! To follow the inspiration I also used a seal, cupcakes (instead of donuts), bows, and clouds like the swirls on the girl's dress.
