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 #18 - Responsibilities

R is for Responsibilities

Stamping through stencils today but all my bought stencils only have small holes so I used one I made in November's Challenge, and inked and stamped through that.


Following the rest of the technique video I tried the dribble bit (a first for me) but think I might have overdone the amount of spraying at the top as it obliterated the stencil/stamping! It also left loads of ink on the craft mat so I did a tag as well whilst I was at it.

The scripture was mighty long today, so was the word! I didn't use any newly cut letters either, just those from my scrap packets. Oops just noticed I have't dotted my "I's", best rectify that later. In fact I usually end up adding to my pages after blogging them - it is always the way isn't it?

Nice tag! And it was a long word, wasn't it? I had to make mine go round the corner :)

Wow. I love this page (and tag). I had to come check it out from your WOYWW post today. Working FT my blog hopping is sporatic, at best.

I really like how this came together.

Worthy of the word and technique. Like you, I can never let anything go to waste. Great use of the tag.
