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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

An Attitude of Gratitude #03

Oh dear have to say today's technique on the Gratitude Journal blog filled me with dread - draw freehand! Not something I am inclined to do, but I watched the video of a mixed media project and knabbed the backing of book pages (left over from my Altered Book) so my pages weren't completely blank to start with.

The picture is of a little stained glass frame we have. I started with watercolour pencils but added distress ink and watercolour pens too as I prefer more intense colours. Still can't get my white pen to work so opted for glitter instead! It's still wet in the photo!
I wrote a synopsis of the scripture Exodus 35:30-35 as it is the one place in the Bible which outlines the gift of crafting.
I hope it portrays my thankfulness for the sunshine and each day we are given.

This is gorgeous! Great job! I have the same feeling about any hand drawing! (I love my Signo Broad uni-ball white pen! It is pigment ink and the kind that Kristina Werner recommends.)
