More tulips and winners from September

Just to prove it was no fluke growing those tulips in Tasmania (see last post at the Botanical Gardens, Hobart) here are two more stunning photographs to share of a tulip farm in the North West of the island of Tasmania -a place called Wynyard - about 4 hours drive away from me. The view is looking northy- west slightly, with Bass Strait in the background. 

It was a wet, wild, blustery weekend, but they still had lots of flowers! They grow for bulbs to sell, mostly, so the flowers are a secondary thing for them. Note the beautiful chocolate brown soil from this area - volcanic in origin they say. This is a big dairy area and a food bowl as well.

Guest Designer for this week

Richa Maurya

Hello ladies. This is Richa Maurya from India. I am a doctor by profession and crafter by passion. I am a relatively new crafter and blogger. For the first time I tried quilling for a Mother's Day gift. And I was amazed by how a piece of paper can be turned into something so mesmerising. And that was the point I entered this amazing world of crafting. Since then I have tried to learn more and more from all my fellow crafters. I just love making cards. Unstampablles is really special for me. Its my good luck charm. Won my first badge here and got this wonderful opportunity for which I am highly grateful to the whole Unstampabelles team, especially Susan.

Coming to Guest Designer Inspiration. I was pretty worried after seeing the theme of the challenge. But then I thought of trying something new and completely out of my comfort zone. So I created a mixed media art journal page. My very first attempt at mixed media.

WOW - what a stunner this is - especially for a first attempt! Love how that image is just outside its frame too. An 'edgy' look as well!

More inspiration for you also from me
