Decision time – butterflies or birds for my burlap canvases?

Months ago I re-covered 2 canvases with burlap (I didn’t like the creation from a previous crafty exploit).

I had two ideas for these two new burlap canvases, but couldn’t decide.

Many would describe me as having ‘thing’ for butterflies and birds. Previous ramblings featuring birds and butterflies are testament to that.

Before making a decision between these two beautiful creatures, I wanted to see what they both looked like on the canvases, so created them both in a kinda draft format (so excuse all the pins holding everything onto the canvas).

There has been a gap of three months between the first option and the second.

Rather than get my nickers-in-a-knot making the final decision, I thought I’d let my blog readers decide for me.

Butterfly Mania

I have a thing for butterflies at the moment – maybe it has something to do with the current metamorphosis my life is undertaking right now. We have sold our home in the city (Melbourne), and bought a block of land on a golf course, about 800m from the beach in Torquay (all in the one week). Hence the reason I have been a little quite lately.

My husband and I joke that we have brought our retirement plans forward about 30 years – and I can’t think of a reason why we shouldn’t. After all, life is to be lived – isn’t it?

Yes, I did say land (no house – yet!). You will all be blessed with living the exciting experience of designing, building, decorating and landscaping our new home – the next year will be Hey Bernice! on steroids.

Landscape photography – Use as Wallpaper (the computer kind!) or for canvas inspiration…

All around us are beautiful things – sometimes it takes a camera lense to isolate them – allowing you to truly admire the colours, form and sheer beauty of the natural world around us.

Often because we see the same things everyday we take them for granted. I started experimenting with landscape photography from a young age – especially when on holidays.

With the ease of digital imagery, these photos can easily be downloaded to make great wallpaper for your computer/laptop, or if you are feeling more adventurous you can collect some of your favourites and have them printed canvas to hang on your wall. Some of my favourite things to photograph:
