No, it's not creamy white icing atop a blue cake, this is a massive sand dune, towering above the Indian Ocean at Lancelin, Western Australia. Absolutely magnificent.
Today I took a road trip to the Pinnacles and as part of the trip I got to see someI Koala's, Kangaroos, Lobsters, walked in the desert and topped the day off with some high powered off roading 4-wheel driving and sand-boarding.
I'll post more pics tomorrow as my computer is having a bit of a nervy tonight ... but yeah, I get out (now and then) .... hehe!
I'm off down in the wilds of South Western Australia again, spending at bit more time with my Mum.
It's been a wet and rainy Spring, and the land is lush and lovely. There was no rush to get here, so I made quite a few stops along the way to snap the local landscape. There is always something interesting to see.
Well, Saturday has come and gone (in all parts of the world) and my demo went of nicely, and thank you very much to all the lovely folk who stopped by to visit.
I used the photo above to demonstrate how to print on cheap fusible interfacing that had been primed and layered with Golden Digital Grounds. We looked at a number of different ways to print on weird and wonderful stuff and it was great to see bright wide eyes and ooo's and ahh's of amazement at what could be accomplished.
Gotta love those lightbulb moments!!! And thank you to Jackson's for inviting me and Cindy for dropping me in it :-)
After a trip cancellation earlier in the week due to bad weather, I finally got to take to the high seas and do a spot of Whale watching.
It was a glorious day and we saw LOTS of whales. Unfortunately I only had a 200mm lens on my camera but we were able to get quite close to these lovely creatures so there were a few decent snaps to be had. The boat charter guy even put down a sonic listening microphone thingy, so we were able to hear them chattering amongst themselves. How fabulous!!
If you are in the neighbourhood, I am going to be doing a Mixed Media demonstration using Golden's Digital Grounds at Jacksons in Joondalup. I'll be talking about creating your own mixed media substrates and the use and application of the digital grounds for inkjet printing.
My name is Marie Otero. I'm a mixed media artist and spend my life hopping between my beloved Australia and the US. My current passion is digital art and photography, but I love to create new and fun stuff with almost anything I can lay my hands on.
