Natalie's page in Gail's "Days Gone By' Journal

I chose Holly Hobbie and swapcards as the main ideas to my page. My mum was right into Hobbytex and everything she did was Holly Hobbie based. I had hankies mum had decorated. She even went as far as dressing my baby sister in a Holly Hobbie dress...but she did look cute. Swapcards were pretty big in the 1970's...and I had the hugest collection (mum gave me all hers too). I've still got them. I was also a massive collector of stamps. These stamps were given by one of our Australian Art Swap members.

I played with acrylic paints and water colour in the background. I do hope you like my take on Days Gone By xx


  1. Lovely pages Natalie, I remember loving Holly Hobbie when I was a kid!

  2. Fantastic page Natalie, love it, love it, love it

  3. I had the whole kit and caboodle of Hobbytex also, I kept it for years, but eventually gave it to someone. I loved Holly Hobby and she is making a big revival at the moment. This page is fantastic and a lovely reminder of the great time I had in the 70's
