I really enjoyed creating the nature collages. I drifted back to the Summers of the ’60’s when with friends, running fast on the path to the beach ,our feet would burn:) I also remembered organizing the nature table at primary school. My favorite subjects were, art, nature and social studies. I collected many of the coastal found objects items from Australian beaches and from my own backyard.

French Country Cottage Half Wall Vase or Planter I accidently broke this vase so upclycled it into a French country style wall ornament.
I sanded the edges and whitewashed the surface sanding it back to give a weathered look. I then drilled holes and added sculptural wire at the back to hold a plant or flowers. I then painted the flowers with acrylic paints and Voila! A French style half wall vase or planter for your garden or indoor wall.
