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.

Stampman Challenge - Bingo

Really wanted to enter The Stampman Challenge this time but was having Bingo Block! So I just went ahead and made a tag anyways and hoped the ingredients would "find themselves". I love green so that was a good start, then flowers too but swirls just didn't make it into the mix.............. My ribbon is polka dotted but I guess you can't count that as fabric aswell - hmmmmm. Then - eureka - I realised the button is a circle!! YIPPEE So Green, Circle and Ribbon it is then, with a few polka dots and flowers thrown in for good measure - LOL. And some alcohol inked acetate butterflies with bead bodies (set using pins to hold beads in place - been wanting to try that for ages). My forsythia is in full bloom at the moment so just had to use that paper today too. Phew - think I have made it by the skin of my teeth.  BJ

A beautiful tag BJ! It's really delicate and so spring like. I love the background and the butterflies are very clever!

Me again! Forgot to say: you'll have to show me how to do those butterflies - alcohol inks are a mystery to me (that is what you used isn't it?!).
