DAY

We celebrated Earth Day by heading outdoors, of course!!! We had ourselves a bit of a natural scavenge challenge.

Here was the task: Make anything you like out of anything natural and return to the workbench for photographing… thirty minutes time limit.

We use bark as mulch and we have heaps of it all over our garden and really no one can resist arting with it… Even I have to make the odd bark goodie, can’t resist!!!

    Hmmm, the lavender lady is my favorite….or the chili tongued snake? I really like the bark land forms too.
