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 #14 - Nature

N is for Nature

Yay, managed my page on my birthday.

Had debated how to use this double tagged pocket and plumped with a tag each for a letter, so it was the top one today. The tag is inked back and front with distress stain and inks.

I went with the flower paper and made up my own flower using the pink paper from one of my birthday card envelopes. The dies are a scalloped circle, a cog, a plain circle and a button. Fortunately had a leaf die and used an "L" for the stem. The ribbon was in the bag of stuff my Mum sent me for my birthday too.

I used my trusty typewriter for the scripture and have left the back blank for now but room for loads of birthday memories to journal.
