Happy New Year 2019 to all my dear blogland visitors and friends!
A little natural wonder to start the year...
I decorated this shadow box using scrapbook papers and natural findings including butterflies, feathers, dragon flies, leaves, insect eggs (they didn't hatch) a cicada and some tiny dry crabs and and sea urchins I picked up at the beach.
Before I put away my pink gumleaves from the previous post I couldn't resist one more play... such gorgeous tones and textures. I love the soft pink galah feathers I found on the ground with the leaves too.
These butterflies were found on the side of the road where I was walking one day, probably hit by a car - but not too damaged, so I brought them home. I'm considering how to save them from being damaged.
The colours don't look so neutral close up!
Walking on our local beaches I often find sea urchin shells and black shark egg shells - usually in rocky areas.
