G'day, everyone, how's it hangin'? Mind if I call you 'Bruce', just to cut down on the confusion? Welcome to Make it Crafty's Australia Day celebration! If you've come here from the MiC blog you're in the right place! Today I have created (what I hope is) a beautiful scene of the Australian Outback for you. I'll admit, the only things I REALLY know about Australia come from TV and movies. Crocodile Hunter, Monty Python (where the sentiment comes from), stuff like that. I wanted to create a real "feel" of Australia, but in the end I just had to wing it!
I used a lot of digi stamps to create this scene. From Make it Crafty I used the backgrounds Australian Outback Farm Road and the Outback Dunny scene. I melded them together, then added in the Wire Fence, Rusty Windmill, Eucalyptus Tree, Kangaroo, and the Kookaburra (which always reminds me of Doctor Who). As for the characters I wanted to add some movement and childish fun so I arranged Koala Luka, Outback Luka, and Kangaroo Marci from La La Land Crafts in the scene. I used a stencil and ink for the sky, but everything else is coloured with my Copic markers.
Well, that's it for me! You're now on to my lovely friend Trudie to see what she has for you to continue the celebration for this great country!
