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.

An Attitude of Gratitude #09

The technique for today on the "An Attitude of Gratitude" blog is FABRIC . Well would you know I only just sorted my fabric drawer recently when my Altered Book Course asked for a fabric page. I used the Weathered Wood Distress stain for the backing, edged with Distress Inks, Salty Ocean and Stormy Sky.
I used my Sizzix Alterations dies to cut the fabric. The bright satin blue fabric I used was from the lining of the box my wedding present from my Dad came, the green and purple from cushions I have made in the past.

The doily and pictures came in my "happy-mail" from Bernice the organiser of this daily AJ challenge for November.

I did the "strengths" on-line test and have noted my top 7 in white writing. I used the New King James Version for the scripture.
