Magical Moments......

Hi Peeps, ever have one of those magical moments? The hair stands up on the back of your neck and the skin gets goosebumps? I have have that a few times: once when I visited Flinder's Island and went to Settlement Point - that is where the small settlement of Emita was created.  Emita is home to the historic Wybalenna Aboriginal Settlement, where the Tasmanian Aboriginal population was forcibly relocated from mainland Tasmania in 1833. We do have a dark history of shame in Tasmania as well as many beautiful places.  I am not aboriginal but I felt their sadness such a beautiful place - almost magical but not quite........

Again, Flinders Island is an island off the north east coast of Tasmania (an island of the south of Australia - another island!) Can you see a theme emerging this month?

I am not sure if the current challenge at Unstampbelles is creating too many magical moments for people but you can use the challenge to remind you of one, like I did!

Collage, collage, collage...

TWIST venture into multi- media too

Collage  is a technique of an art production, primarily used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
A collage may sometimes include magazine and newspaper clippingsribbonspaint, bits of colored or handmade papers, portions of other artwork or texts, photographs and other found objects, glued to a piece of paper or canvas. 

My base is a sheet of white paper 12 x 12

The subject is my Granddaughter Hettie

The collage is mostly tucked under the photograph - strips of torn paper and some cardboard, as well as die cuts. The multimedia is the Dylusion's paint smeared across the page and stencilled onto it. 

The place was Germany in winter

The reason was a Tattoo for the New Zealand Army Band, of which Hettie was a member and one of the main singer's for this particular act. She was just 19 yrs old.

She loves the stage!

The magical moment for me was seeing her on YouTube and watching her own that stadium in front of a huge audience and hearing her sing - hair raising stuff! 

So I created a scrap page for the moment - to freeze it in time!

What can you make to fit this theme?

Fabulous layout Susan and wonderful tribute to your talented Grand daughter. Love how the circle of stars links with the gold 'braiding'.

Can we have the Youtube link please. I would love to see it. My Grand daughter, Emily Jo, is just starting out as a singer and acoustic guitarist. Doesn't it make you feel proud of them.....all that talent!

Hugs Wynn x
