Some shares from Down Under Direct

The days keep getting away from me and updated this blog just doesn't seem to happen, so I have a lot of pics for you today.

Here are a few things I have had on the Down Under Direct blog this past month.

A little collage style easel card.

My beautiful little man. Love those Speldid circles dies.

For this I created a metal embellishment using the new Media Mixage elements.

And some more splendid circles. 

 I'm really pleased with this tealight candle holder. It was from an op shop and was really ugly. It had these hideous brown beads on it, so I removed those and gessoed the whole thing, then made my own hanging vines with all handmade flowers.

I better leave it there before you get too bored.  Please be sure to leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I kind of feel like I am talking to myself sometimes :)

Lots of new work to share

I have lots of new bits and pieces from all over that I haven't shared yet. I worked at the Brisbane Expo last weekend, and got to meet lots of my fellow Manor House friends for the first time, including Jo, who I have known for years and years and never actually met up with. It was a lovely (but tiring day).

Here are a few ManorHouse shares to start with. You can see all of these and so many more wonderful designs from the other girls here.

This is my friend Nicole from her wedding. Our brief on this one was to use a gold colour theme, so I have used MHC mini roses and gold capri flowers.

Next up, we were asked to use purple and red together. This is not a typical colour combination for me, but I think I made it work.

And another layout using the new vines. I love these. One vine cut into three sections and the layout practically does itself.

I'll have some more shares from Down Under Direct for tomorrow.
