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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

An A to Z of Me #16 - Possibilities

P is for Possibilities

Today we learnt how to alter a photo, with sanding, scratching and adding watercolour paint. Had to commandeer my son's dinosaur paint box as I don't have any watercolours myself (wish I'd thought of that a few days ago!)

Used a photo of last year's Mother's Day roses, and scratched today's quote in it round the edge. Couldn't find any dots for my "I's" in my diecut letters bags so used red stickles instead, but didn't need to cut any letters out specially today. Used my Dylusions stencil down the sides and more stickles to accent.

Really happy with my page today. Oh the possibilities - LOL.

I altered photos a few years ago with bleach, scratching, and sanding. Someone gave me some photos and I thought they were REAL photos, not printed on a printer. As a result, I had a mess on my hands when I tried to alter them. Yours, on the other hand, is awesome. Real photos are a dying artform.
