Weather With You – #Inktober 2018 Day 6

On the 6th grey clouds hung above us all day but we had a sunny one 🙂

Do I lie like a lounge room lizard
Or do I sing like a bird released
Everywhere you go you always take the weather with you

I Can See Clearly Now – #Inktober 2018 Day 5

My cataracts are now history.  On the 5th my reading glasses arrived. 🙂

I can see clearly now, the rain has gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun shiny day!             – Johnny Cash

Above The Clouds The Sun Shines – #Inktober 2018 Day 4

On Day 4 I spent hours working again with fabrics designed by Aboriginal artists while clouds gathered, a thunderstorm developed and angels cried.

The Sun – Giver of Life – #Inktober 2018 Day 3

I created with fabulous fabrics designed by Aboriginal artists.  The colours brought the Aboriginal Australian flag to mind.  It represents the people, the sun, giver of life and protector, and the red earth of this great southern land so well! I’d be happy to see it as our national flag.

I regretted limiting myself to black and yellow for this Inktober but if there are shades of grey then there can be 50 shades of black – can’t there? :))

Let The Sunshine In – #Inktober 2018 Day 1

Let the sunshine in. Brighten up my day.
Let the sunshine in. Blow my blues away.
Let the sunshine in!

Let The Sunshine In – #Inktober 2018 Day 1

Sadly, three tall Jarrah trees close to our house were felled, for safety reasons, on day one of Inktober 2018.

But now more light streams into our home to chase any blues away.

My self inflicted restrictions for Inktober 2018 are:

  • Black and yellow ink
  • Sunshine reference
  • Related to my day.

The hardest part of Inktober is posting- especially when I feel there is a whopping mismatch between idea and the outcome!
