On my walk back from school, I am fortunate to go past some lovely Gum trees with sumptious tree bark. I love tree bark for it has beautiful texture and colours.
I think the texture of bark has always amazed me since I was a teenager and I started looking at the world around me in a new way! I would wonder how can I use it as inspiration in my textile work! I would start trying to come up with ways of replicating it with paper, wax and fabric.
They are just so textural!! My high school textiles teacher’s enthusiasm for texture has given me a life long love!
I see new ideas every time I walk past this series of trees!
I’m not sure what the name of this tree is but the colour of these berries and seedpods are divine especially against the greens of the trees and the brilliant blue sky!
This beautiful Magnolia flower has just started to bloom near by, it is so stylish and classic!
When I got home, I collected the eggs from our chickens and sat down to have a lovely cup of tea and to think about all the work I need to get on with today.
Until next time.
