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 #25 - Yes

Y is for Yes.

Safe to say I whimped out of putting kitchen towel through my printer today but I did line my pages with kitchen towel and sealed with pearlescent paint before adding my words, the scripture and more tattered florals!

Yes - "Tattered Florals" is the challenge set by Tim Holtz at present and I can't stop using them!! This is my 3rd project so far. First is a 6x6 board, 2nd a double 12x12 scrappage, now my penultimate page in my A to Z album.

Hope you like how I have used my flap this time. I chose the 2 differing colours as they were the same colours as the original patterned papers I covered (well I'll remember that anyway).

Last page tomorrow.

Your pages are all lovely.

I love all your pages. Did you make this journal? I would love to know how you made it because I really love the flaps and tags.

Tracy said...

Nice use of the flap! And I don't blame you not putting kitchen towel through the printer - I wouldn't chance that either :)

Bubbles said...

Go round to somebody else's house, and put a paper towel through their printer - but only if you don't like them very much ;)
Only kidding.

I love this - utterly scrumptious. The colours are so rich, the wording bold and simply stated. It's really gorgeous.
Have a wonderful WOYWW!
Best wishes from Bubbles

Hi BJ... Lovely 'Y' pages, love the colours and that looks a great texture. Happy WOYWW Gill x #104

Caz said...

Great pages!!! Don't blame you for not putting kitchen roll through your printer - don't think I'd risk that either!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I do like, very much! I'm not surprised about the kitchen towel and the printer...it would take me some convincing!

Krisha said...

Hi BJ,
Great journal pages. I really like the thought of an A-Z of Me book. I have rub a lot of things through the printer but not a kitchen towel, cloth or paper.
