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 #20 - Try

T is for Try

Still feeling horrid so pleased to say I did this whilst still in my PJs! Does that count as resting up?

Another half pocket with tag today and the patterned paper is again the pearlescent kind so only permanent inks would do - of which I only have black and brown! I chose the latter and then consulted my stamp folder (yes I only have one stamp folder - a Tim Holtz one).

Chose 2 Tim Holtz stamps for my border, first his chandelier and for the back his crown. Both worked really well in part as borders. Really must do this technique more often, dare I say I like it and it involves stamping.

I tried to type out the whole scripture today but it was too long and I ran out of the coloured paper I liked so I just did the sentence with "TRY" in it. I filled the space with butterflies (they were the first I came to in my alphabetised spare diecut box!). I have left the back plain for any journaling later.

I can't believe how much catching up I have. But I can finally get back to blogger and leave you a comment. Your tag is gorgeous, and I like your inventive nature. It shows what you can do even if you only have ONE of something. Way to go.

Hi BJ,
Oh, I hope you feel better soon. But to craft in your pjs.... that's so cool!

I love this page; the flower paper is way cool. And I love how you stamped the little crown around the tag. Also, love the bible verse. Can you tell I just love everything about this project?!?
