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 #22 - Vision

V is for Vision

Masking tape resist today and I usually find any masking tapes too sticky so used my Ikea tape and that was mostly fine. I did the tear it in half and stick down straight edge to straight edge for the uneven edges effect.

 I used a couple of acrylic paints and my trusty Tesco Club Card (what else are they for as I shop mainly in Asda?). I like the effect the card has on the finished background, must try that again!

I really wanted to try a Vision Board but with time limited I just pulled out some magazine pictures. There are some great pictures in the radio section of Radio Times each week, I have been saving them for a while now. All the pictures I chose have faces with prominent eyes, which seemed to go with the prompt of VISION.

I did cut out all my letters today, I had all but the "S" in white but as I had to get my "Wordplay" die out for that one anyway, I just did them all in the coloured card I needed.

I handwrote the scripture on the resist lines and added a few dots too. I have taken a few photos of my page and how it sits with the other pages in the album. I like the way the lady peeks out from under the tags.
The whole spread now says "Self Vision".

What a gorgeous spread BJ, I love the colours you've chosen and what fab pictures for your collage too. One of my favourite paint techniques as well, I love the randomness and mixes you get with it.
