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 #27

Three more days and counting on "An Attitude of Gratitude". Today we have "Travel" as our theme and to use an art medium rarely used. I used chalks on versamark for the map and ticket on my page.

I made it all brown (Frayed burlap Distress Stain base) to look like an old document. I made an ATC aswell as I tested out the technique first (it was what I had intended on day 25 for the sea but had forgotten the chalks altogether so I guess they count as a medium rarely used.)

The clay paint spiced the brown up a bit along with the black dotty doodling. Still debating my lamp stamp to go with the scripture, but maybe not....

The page looks great. I'm really impressed that you have done a page a day and are up to date.

Hi BJ,

This page is great! I like the burlap distress stain. I guess the spiced brown is the orange color - that really pops nicely.

I'm impressed that you've been keeping up with the Daily Gratitude journal - that's a committment!

Another awesome page, my friend! Love the antique-y, distressed feel of this and you've really gotten hold of the theme for today! Love it! Off to create mine....after a long day of taking my parents to their dr. appts.
