New Years Resolutions

Well another year has passed and we're right into 2011 now.  Scary!

In keeping with my New Years resolution to 'print, print, print', I've already spent my first day for 2011 at the Impress Printmakers' Camp Hill Studio, with my printing-pal Cathy Money.

I decided to revisit my Bower series, this time using 2 different bird images.  I delved into my box of 'goodies' and found some mini ric-rac which features in some of the prints.  I also tried talcum powder which gave an interesting 'aquatint' type of effect - something more to be explored in the future!

One of my other New Years Resolutions was to de-clutter my storage areas.  I'm happy to say that I have once again regained control of my spare room via a large shelving system I sourced from Officeworks.  And my large papers finally have a home thanks to the creative skill of my partner Craig - he has transformed a old kitchen cupboard shell into a paper storage unit.  

My next area for attack is the garden shed - its currently stacked with plant fibre that unfortunately has suffered in our recent wet weather conditions and desperately needs composting........wish me luck!


  1. Best of luck on the de-cluttering. I should try that. Like your talcum powder experiment.
