Creating Colours

Mixing colours - always messy, always different, always satisfying, always surprising! Almost as much fun as printing :-)

One of the Locals, Hangin' Out

The inshore rocky reefs exposed at low tide are a popular resting place for the Snake Bird (Australian Darter) and Pied Cormorant. This little patch of the bay is the only marine national park on the Redcliffe Peninsula so it is quite special.

And Busy Sewing As Well

These are the first bags I have made since moving to Queensland and the first to bear the new PalumaPrint label. Very light and summery - suiting the hot and humid climate here.

I have had lots on inquiries about buying my stuff and I hope to have an online shop up and running by the end of March :-)

I've Been Busy Printing!

Been trying my hand at tea towels - after sourcing some crisp white linen/cotton blanks. Three colours and three designs which are just about all destined to be gifts for family and friends.

One of the prints is a stylized Umbrella Tree (on the right). Below is a real one - very close to where I live (no flower spikes yet). The seeds are spread by birds and germinate readily - and just about anywhere - so this plant can become a bit of a pest, invading national parks and other areas where it is not found naturally.
