I'm glad the photos came into my possession although in sad circumstances, as they brought back many fond memories I had of spending time with my sister and her family. I know I often spent time with them especially after they moved to the tiny seaside village of Hastings Point on the far north coast of NSW. I knew that my foot was bandaged and it wasn't until tonight, that I remembered having trodden on a nail, and having to have my foot wrapped.... no such things as stretchy bandages then. It would have been made from cut / torn old sheet, and boiled in the copper to sterilise it. I really enjoyed my visits, as my nieces were more like younger sisters, my own siblings having all grown up and working, at this time.
I've gone with the bright colours of summer, with the backgroud papers and flowers. Some of these were commercial, the rest were handmade, diecut from experiments using the gelli pad and gesso, acrylics and sprays.
Acrylics were used on the chipboard flourish and butterfly. These were then finished with glossy accents. The same product was also used on the lettering for the title. The butterfly was also glued onto organza ribbon, trimmed and completed with bits of bling. I found a tiny doll in the stash and dressed her in a folded flower.
