Aussie Tag swap 'July'

If you would know strength and patience,
 welcome the company of trees.
Hal Borland
Well I was late with my Aussie tag swap for last month and my partner for July was Diane of Cardenofelan. Diane has told me that she has received the tag so I can show what I have made for her. The theme was 'Beauty of a Tree'.  I used Kaisercraft papers and the tiny trees stamp from Stampin'up.. I have been practising with my watercolours so did a bit of shadowing at the bottom of my trees.  I have been seeing a lot of people using typewritten writing on there journal work and dusted off my typewriter that I have nearly thrown away a dozen times.. It was such fun to use it again and it still works like a dream so can see me using that a bit now. I used my sewing machine around some edges, really like to use that on all sorts of things now.. Its funny how all the little things I have been learning are popping up on all sorts of things I am creating now..
