Every piece is stained with antique style leather dye, giving the products a beautiful rustic look. The edges are hand stitched with durable kangaroo leather lacing, a timely yet worthwhile process. This brings a personal touch to the products and gives them a gorgeous 70's feel🌿 . . #inspiredbynature #inspiredbythe70s #australiannativeflowers #australiannativeplants #flora #nature #eucalyptus #banksia #tooledleather #handmade #leathercraft #sunshinecoast #noosahinterland #leatherclutch #leatherwallet
SCREEN EXPOSURE // burning Kangaroo Paw screen 2 ✌️step-by-step explained below for anyone interested! . . . . 1. safelight in darkroom turned on. Screens must be kept away from U.V. light prior to exposure when coated with light sensitive emulsion 2. screen placed face down in darkroom 3. film placed back-to-front on top on screen (it will be the right way up when printing) 4. thin piece of Perspex placed on top of screen and weighted down to prevent light from entering under the film 5. timer set for a 24 minute exposure. I use a 500 watt halogen light to burn my screens, hence the long exposure time. In commercial or larger set-ups, exposure time is generally under one minute 6. halogen light turned on and door closed.. the waiting game starts! 7. after exposure, you can already see faintly the design burned onto the screen 8. screen is quickly taken outside to washout booth. High pressure hose used to wash out parts of the image that were protected from the light and not hardened (this is the black image on the film) 9. patience is key. Image is slowly washed out 10. the resulting screen drying. Once dry, I’ll leave it in the sun for a few hours or back under the halogen light for 1/2 hour to post-harden. This screen is then ready to print from - the ink will be pushed through the washed out areas of the screen - the design! . . . #screenprinting #exposure #design #process #homestudio #australiannativeplants #kangaroopaw #handcrafted #handprinted

I planted a new baby. Which might be overly optimistic in this heat but it’s been sitting in its tube on a shelf that gets the afternoon sun so it might be quite happy with the move. #gardening #gardenersofinstagram #greenthumb #gardentherapy #australiannatives #australiannativeplants #grevillea #grevilleasofinstagram #weejaspergrevillea #grevilleaiaspicula
Banksia grandis inflorescence bigger than my head 🤳🏻 The trees I’m used to seeing further north of their range are too tall to get up close to, but around here most were <2 m tall
Day 22. Species: Epilobium billardieranum, Smooth Willowherb⠀ Family: ONAGRACEAE⠀ -⠀ Animals are often the primary dispersers of the seeds of flowering plants but many plants have evolved adaptations to have their seeds dispersed by other mechanisms. The seeds of members of the genus Epilobium, a relative of the Fuchsia, have little tufts of hairs attached to them. These seeds are held within a long capsule that splits open, at which point the wind catches and spreads the seeds. High seed production and rapid and widespread seed dispersal allows E. billardieranum to colonise newly disturbed areas and establish before other plants have a chance to establish.
#redbubble fun - my order arrived in this morning’s mail - trying out some different drawings on scarves mostly! #melbourneartist #botanicalart #wearableart #ink #inkartist #australiannativeplants
I love the very Australian look of my Ficus benjamina variegata (I think so anyway 🙂). I adore his leaves & I think his pot (from @podgardens_au ) is perfect for him. He is super happy at my house so one day I hope he’ll be a gorgeous tree 😃 . . #weepingfig #ficus #ficusbenjamina #ficusbenjaminavariegata #australiannativeplants #foliage . . . #peaceandsprout #plantjournal #planttherapy #selfcare #mentalhealth #houseplant #plantgang #plantsmakemehappy #plantsmakepeoplehappy #houseplantclub #houseplantjournal #aussieplantclub #houseplantcommunity #plantlove #urbanjungle #therealhouseplantsofinstagram #therealhouseplantsof_ig #plantparentcommunity #greenyourfeed
Finger lime grows well in a containers. Keep up the water, mulch it and add some compost each season - simple! I also have a lime and a kaffir lime all growing beautifully in pots
Lovely Australian gums flowering prolifically right now and I’ve never seen or heard so many Rainbow Lorikeets in one local street before...their squawking was almost deafening. #flowering #redfloweringgum #nectarforthebirds #redpink #flowers 🌸 #australiannativeplants #prettyinpink #blooms #australia #australianflowers #makeyourheartsing

Some exciting new stock has been coming into the Bare Bones studio lately, and this Leptospermum laevigatum is one of them. I always forget to take photos of stock before I get too stuck in. The circumstances surrounding how this tree came into my hands are extremely unfortunate, but I hope to give it a bright future.

Recognisable as Victoria's Floral emblem, Common Heath's ( Epacris impressa ) first specimen was actually sourced from Tasmania in 1793—along with thousands of other cuttings—by Jacques-Julien de Labillardiere the naturalist aboard Bruni d'Entrecasteaux's expedition of 1791–94 tasked with finding the missing explorer La Perouse. However, as we've noted in the past, his exhaustive collection was seized by the Dutch in Java during the Napoleonic Wars and disparagingly obtained by the British thereafter. Though fortunately for Labillardiere, his friendship with the English naturalist Sir Joseph Banks proved invaluable—with Banks being widely recognised and respected for never examining the freshly collected and undefined specimens—rather, returning them as received and proclaiming: 'science should rise above political differences'; hence, it wasn’t until 1805 that Labillardiere officially described Epacris impressa. ⠀ 📸 @hartvigsenrod 📍 Saintys Creek Cottage, TAS, 🇦🇺 ⠀ "What is the use of a house if you haven’t ⠀ got a tolerable planet to put it on? ⠀ —if you cannot tolerate the planet it is on?" ⠀ Henry David Thoreau 🌏 www.brunyisland.com.au/Saintys-Creek-Cottage 👤x 4 | 🛏x 2 | 🌓x 2 Night min⠀ 🐕 No Pet Policy (protects our native wildlife)
