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 #22

Today's theme was thanksgiving over on the "An Attitude of Gratitude" challenge blog. We were to use texture as our technique. Bernice used gesso and stamped into it so I had a go at that too. I played around with some paints and inks and stamps and just stuff really.

Even made a few Christmas Cards whilst the gesso was drying! Decoupage from a Papermania paper kit I bought last year. Just so magical.

Anyway, back to the journal, I'm sure the page "needs" something but, as it is quite busy already, maybe not. Constructive comments always welcome, as I am still learning all this art journaling stuff.

There was no plan as such but I can see a landscape in the page with the butterfly flitting over some water.

I am thankful for God's creation and the beautiful world which surrounds us.

Your Christmas cards are so much lovelier than mine. They are adorable. Your gratitude entry is great, too.

Another great page

I love this 'gratitude' page spread - my favourite so far. Great colours, background and composition. Personally, I would leave these well alone - if you add anything else I think the wonderful balance will be lost.
Lovely traditional cards too.
