About Me

Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Freebie - Art Journalling

Yep - succumbed to the old freebie on a magazine yet again.

Papercraft Essentials have a stencil and stamp set this month.

Thought I'd try and see if the stamp of the dandelion stem would straighten up and make like the Allium I have in the garden.

I got out my journal which has been gathering dust since February. I'd last done the calendar pages for February and then nothing. I guess I was a bit disappointed about how the stamping had shown through to the other side of the page but who knows.

Anyway I went ahead and stamped the blooms and inked and coloured and it came out OK. There was still the matter of the facing page with the ink showing through, so I covered this with a book page and couldn't help myself but ink and stamp on that as well.

Nice to be back journalling but how long will this last?

Oh and the last couple of owl/icecream cards from craft club last month made up at last.
