MiC Australian Day

I’m back again for my second project today… now isn’t that lucky for you! LOL This one is a journal page that I did to celebrate Australian Day and to show off a couple of the new images from Make it Crafty! Welcome to the hop!

You should have arrived here from the talented AJ – which is also the beginning!


I had asked Zoe to send me any two images, a background and a person or animal, to color so this the combination that arrived in my inbox! It made me laugh because it reminded me of the expression… “Does a bear s*** in the woods?” and so the combination was perfect to fit the Australian theme … “Does a koala s*** in the outback?”


The images I used are Outback Dunny and Koala & Joey from Make it Crafty, plus some corner chippies in Fine Swirls. I used a little bit of burlap ribbon for texture and gray felt clouds to bring out the gray in the koalas. Plus with the green fields of the outback… it has to be during the rainy season! Here’s a close-up of the Koalas…

Now I guess you’re looking for the next mate to hop on over to?? Well before you do… Make sure you comment below for your chance to win an Australian Souvenir. Each of us will be selecting someone from our comments to receive a little Aussie Souvenir from Zoe!

PLUS Zoe is offering 20% OFF store wide at Makeitcrafty.com until the 28th January! Hurry on over (when you get through the hop of course!) to grab some bargains!!


Thanks for stopping by and where ever you are… we hope you have a fabulous Australian Day! Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oi! Oi! Oi!

Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous DEBBIE!!

  2. Hello Barbara,You've done it again! I always admire your colouring. It's great how you got the fur on the koala down to a T. You scene does suggest a koala s** in the outback but they are very civilised about it and do it in a dunny!hugs Zahreenxxx
