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.

ABAC #11 - Snow

It just had to be done, a tribute to all our snow this past weekend. My ATC uses the Tim Holtz mini embossing folder snowflakes on metal, edged using metal tool, and "low-lighted" with black paint. The diecut snowflakes are coloured with Salty Ocean and topped with Brushed Pewter. I used sticky ribbon leftovers and tied some coloured string round the middle. Various gems, brads and eyelets were added to finish. Hopefully this should fit the bill at ABAC for their challenge to use anything which "Ties Up".

Hi BJ. Just trying to catch up now I'm vertical and breathing (must therefore be alive!). Great ATC and I love snowflakes at any time - not the real ones though - bit sick of those now!! Hope all is well.
Glad you joined the challenge at Anything But A Card this time too.
