Before I go I thought you might be interested to see where I work.  I was going through some old photos on a disk and I came across this photo.
Geelong used to be a big port for wool sales.  These building are repurposed wool stores.  Only very hot days there is still a faint smell of lanoline.


Well that is all for tonight.  As usual I am looking forward to the weekend.  I hope you have a lovely weekend

The City Hall and some of the old buildings had images projected onto them




There were illuminations in the park
 The Art Gallery had the winning Archibald Prize portrait
and the public choice portrait exhibited on the ourside wall of the Gallery.  Guy Pearce grew up in Geelong.











There was music of all sort.  An opera singer was singing from the second floor of a car parking garage and from a civic monument.

Sorry this was a rather large post but I hope you enjoyed the photos.

JOY


It’s the last Sunday of the month so it is time for the challenge I have with my sister, Cards and Co.  This month it is an Altered Item.

The big question was what to do?  I thought Christmas was a good place to start.  Also doing letters meant if I was only able to do one letter I still had something to show.  I played safe and use a small word.


Letters - KaiserCraft
Stamp Sets - Merry Jingle & Peace & Joy, both Penny Black; Poinsettia, Papertrey Ink; Christmas Rose Just Inklined digital stamp

Colouring - Copics
Accents - Nouvo Crystal drops & Kaiser Craft rhinestones
ChipBoard words - Scrapmatt
Paint - Kaisercolour
 

Do pop over and have a look at my sisters Altered Item, it's very pretty.

Thanks for dropping by
