This week I guest posted over at Ansie’s place while she is travelling around Australia. The theme of my guest blog are the colours of Australia so click over to see some colour palettes from images from my last camping trip with family. The colours of the desert, the sunsets, the earth and the flowers. The image below is a flakey painted door next to some rich red bricks — I love to make these colour palettes simply using photoshop but I also like to use online palette making tools such as Kuler. It’s fun and free – give it a go!
Pinterest has changed their terms and conditions and I am once again happy to be using. Highlights of the update include: ”Our original Terms stated that by posting content to Pinterest you grant Pinterest the right for to sell your content. Selling content was never our intention and we removed this from our updated Terms.” Huffington post has a good article about the changes.
Country Cottage Quilting by Lynette Anderson (David & Charles February 2012) has everything you love about country crafts — the embroidered details, the felted textures, the soft colours, the beautiful applique. Nothing twee or gloomy about these designs, just lovely traditional country crafting at its best.
