Barry Smith leaf, making lino cuts

In my mail box yesterday this wonderful leaf, metal tag and card from Barry Smith metal work recycler extrodinaire. Barry lives in Maleny Queensland and I couldnt resist ordering this leaf from him. If you google I think you will find his website. He recently had an eshibition and showed the leaves and some wonderful bowls on his blog. I want more!!
I have been playing with making a few more simple stamps and ezycut lino type things, stamping, spraying, using stencils etc on some small books I have been making. Fun simple things when I am feeling a little 'off'. I dont need things I really have to think about.
We had a wonderful walk this morning which helped, photos on my other blog.
Thank you Barry for brightening my day.

I would so agree with you Penny - a look at some good art brightens any day.

I like making my own stamps, too. What fun creating something unique that can be used over and over again!Enjoy your playing time.
Barry's leaf is beautiful!

P- I'm pleased that the leaf etc added brightness to your day - the metal leaf is a poor substitute for getting out and checking our the windfall and the magnificent drifts and piles of leaves - they make me smile. B
