- 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 #18
Today's prompt was Memories and the technique too use old packaging. All on the "An Attitude of Gratitude" challenge blog.
The colours weren't at all what I'd intended but I was lead by the packaging from some Andy Skinner stamps from which I punched the boarder on the right and diecut the "Memories" and wings. The birds were diecut from an old clothing tag.
I'm sure my "Old Paper" distress stain is having an identity crisis as on the bottle it is definitely a pale brownish colour but this is decidedly pale green! I used "Shaded Lilac" distress ink for the shading and stamping. I just had to add an elephant as I remember so much! I balanced the silver with an embossed boarder on the left and some peel-off spots and silver glitter.
Off to tend to my Rudolph nose as I am full of cold - Sigh.
