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 #04

 Today for the Gratitude Journal technique we were asked to stamp with an embossing folder. This was completely new to me, never even thought of doing it before.

Our scripture was about time and the only appropriate folder I have is the Darice cogs one. I practiced once and was thrilled with the result so I stamped the positive top right and the negative bottom left. I also happened to have a stamp of the scripture so used that too.

I used some green paint with a Tesco card to cover the pages initially and pearlescent pink to cover the number dies. I even had a go with my new white pen which seems to work nicely.

I added some Crushed Olive and Walnut Stain Distress Inks aswell.
