A Weekend In The Country

Several times  year I head off to the hills or the coast for three days of arting and fun with Lucy.. and last weekend our Ballarat trip fell due. We weren't actually 'in' Ballarat but about 15kms past it in Smythesdale.  Lucy booked a lovely little two bedroom cabin and we packed our art supplies and headed off.

Friday afternoon we got stuck into the Twiddlybitz kits we bought at the last Paperific.  I made mine in shades of cream with a touch of mauve and pink ... Lucy's was in Turquoise.  I added a trim of the Tim Holtz  washi tape, white German scrap, some pearls and buttons etc.  Great little kit and quick to do.

Saturday we went off to the Ballarat Wildlife Park - very nice day... patted a koala and hand fed and patted a Kangaroo :-)

Sunday was raining pretty non stop so we decided to stay in and get some more art done.. I finished off another two months of the Vintage Fat Book for Paperarts swap and almost finished a third.
