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 A to Z of Me #01 - Adventure

A is for Adventure.

Yes this is the first page of my A to Z of me Art Journal. I'm using a handmade journal which my secret sister gave me for Advent last year.

I'll probably just stick to the craft technique and the scripture quote, but it is a start.

I used my handmade stamp I made during last November's Attitude of Gratitude journal, for the distress ink bleach-out technique, and my trusty typewriter for the scripture. Oh and my recently acquired faux stitching stamps for the border.

Not sure what I'd want as adventure. I asked my son and he said I'd like to eat chocolate and not get fat, play badminton whenever I liked and  craft the rest of the time - awww.
