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 #15 - Openness

O is for Openness

Never had so much fun in the kitchen. Yes that was where Bernice advised us try our technique today!

I took a little tray of stash/tools down to the kitchen and got stuck in.

Realised that despite having prised the stopper off one of my Distress Stains, that the colour wasn't intense enough. However the Dylusions worked a treat.

I even did both sides of my album tag first and they turned out cool. I did a further one on photo paper and one on smooth card. Really pleased with the results.

Love the swirls you got on your tags. Pretty colors too. I hope mine comes out half as good.

I have used this technique before, but never got anything this incredible. I also have not used distress inks with the shaving cream. I may have to try them together,
