Butterfly spotting and a walk along the river.
Would you like to see photos of the giant butterfly I spotted in my garden the other week.
Come and take a look....
I used Deb Blake's technique with the Swallowtail Butterfly Stamp.p.71 of the catalogue.
Stamp in Staz On onto acetate. Cut out butterfly shape. Then paint with a mixture of crystal effects and your choice of ink. Leave time between each colour to dry. Sprinkle with dazzling diamonds and add more crystal effects then another layer of acetate. Leave to dry completely overnight. Cut around butterfly. Punch two holes and thread some florist wire through the body. Bind two wires together with florist tape to finish off.
Now you have a flower pot decoration.

My husband and I love to go for a walk if we can most weekends. Often at Kangaroo Point which is on the other side of Brisbane City Centre.
It was such a glorious August day on Sunday I thought I would take some photos and then you could come for the walk with us!
This is the top of the stairs we walk down to get to the bottom of the cliffs. Are you ready? That is Southbank in the distance. We could walk that way but I think we will turn right and walk towards the harbour today. What do you think?
On July 6th, 1940 Brisbane's Story Bridge opened for operation. It took five years to construct and a river crossing near Kangaroo Point had first been recommended 14 years before the bridge was finally completed. One of the major reasons for building the Story Bridge was actually employment. During the Great Depression, the construction effort provided years of employment for many men as one of the then governments' three public works projects.
The Story Bridge is the largest steel bridge designed, fabricated and constructed in Australia by Australians.
Hope you're not too tired out.
Thanks for stopping by today. Come back again soon. Vx
