A little about Grace Cossington Smith ...
And now some inspiration from our team ...
(in no particular order)
Sharon Bishop - (Australia)
Plunge - Jenna (DD), swinging off a rope swing and getting ready to plunge into the Jamieson river...an 8 year old with no fear!! (circa 1997)
Karen Brierley - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the trees and water in the painting, and scrapped a photograph from the Nightcap National Park rainforest. Lots of fussy cutting on this layout!
Tanya Heritage - (Australia)
Dale Tiernan - (Australia)
Annemarie Caister - (New Zealand)
I was inspired by the "nature" theme this month after my recent cruise to the Pacific Islands. We spent a blissful day snorkeling and lounging on Mystery Island, Vanuatu.
Karen McLaughlin - (Australia)
I took my inspiration from the trees in the painting.
Jane Howden - (Australia)
I was inspired by a number of colours in the artwork and used a few photos of my children having fun in a corn maze many years ago. I have made a concerted effort to use as many stickers as I could on this page - I think it works!
