About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

Rudolph Day

On the on-line craft group (UKPC) we have what we call a "Rudolph Day". This is on the 25th of each month and in the past it has been the day where we made a few Christmas Cards to spread the load over the year.

This year, however, we are using the day to make the "Tim Holtz 12 Days of Christmas Tags." So I guess it will be more like the 12 "months" of Christmas! As I made all 12 tags of 2011, I am going to be choosing one of Tim's previous year's tag for that particular month. So I made this tag based "loosely" on the January 2008 technique.

I used a Ranger Manila #8 tag and Tim Holtz's compass mini mask (only mask I have!). Distress inks are Peeled Paint, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo and the background stamp is from the Shabby French Collection (again the only one I have!). I used the Vintage Market alphabet, inked and crackle painted. The ink pot and feather stamps are from Dimention Forth's gentlemen set, inked and crackle painted also. The book set is a Cuttlebug Die. So all in all not Christmassy at all.

Thanks Scrapmate - are you a scrapbooker going by your name?

Thanks Gio,I only came across the challenge late on so hadn't seen all the chat on the colour wheel but love colours and thought my tag might fit the bill.

Thanks Von, Really must do some more lace. I only got it out this time last year (it had been away for over 13yrs!!) as it was our 13th anniversary and that is lace so thought I best make some.

Thanks Julia, sometimes people don't realise how good they are and you must be one of these people! BJ
