Australia Day Blog Hop for Make it Crafty


As an Aussie this is an important time of year for us - the 26th of January is Australia Day - our National Day - when it's OK to use a bit of Ocker Slang and pop some snags on the barbie while sucking down a tinnie or two when friends lob in. To celebrate the fun the Make it Crafty team are blog hopping along to all things Australian.  

And to help us celebrate Australia Day in style Zoe has a hum dinger of a prize on offer - hidden along the hop is this prize for one lucky commenter...



How AWESOME is THAT!!!!

I have created my scene with some of the Outback Elements and my favourite Jolly ol' fella - Aussie Santa, who is obviously taking a well earned break after the Christmas rush while checking out Uluru - one of our national wonders. I also added a gumnut corner to my scene - although later I thought I should have done it in 3D. I was wondering what to use for an embellishment when I saw an old corrugated fence on a walk recently so I came home and painted some card up grey and then dry brushed on some "brown" to act as rust.

Wishing all of my Aussie mates a corker of a day.

Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Asa's blog.

Couldn't keep the snags on the barbie, far too windy and wet. Had to have a lamb roast - least I wont get lambnesia. Fantastic scene, love the corrugated corner - great touch. Cheers Mate from not so sunny Brisvegas.

Love this card. I love your colouring, your embellishments, especially the clever way of adding corrugated fence and definitely all the slang.

Blessings,
Adriana
