One of the great things about being a craft blogger is the great people I get to meet from all over the world. The world becomes a lot smaller when you meet people who share your passion.
I have also had the opportunity to learn more about the different traditions from around the world, and today we celebrate one of those traditions. Saturday, January 26, is Australia Day. When Zoe challenged us to make cards for an Australia Day Blog Hop, I was intrigued. How do they celebrate Australia Day. I did a little research, and found it is very much like the Fourth of July in the US, but with a different flag. Lots of fun in the sun, fireworks, parties, face painting. Great fun!
I really wanted to represent the Australian flag in my creation, so I took Enchanted Unicorn from Make It Crafty and an Australian flag, and combined them in Photoshop. Here is the result...
In order to make the lines show up, I had to lighten the flag. I also added some hints of shadows and ground the image with Copics.
I used Microsoft Word - Word Art to create my sentiment. I included some chippies because I just LOVE chippies!
