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.

TH Tattered Floral Challenge - II

I was already working on this LO when the TH Challenge was set, so I just had to add some tattered florals to it. Especially so as the subject of the photos was our visit to the National Trust property, Standen House and its beautiful gardens back in the height of our UK Summer! Yes we DID have at least one sunny day, these photos are testament to that!

Have to say that Tim's dies work just as well with the more "grunge" type projects, like in my other entry to this challenge,  as well as for the more "gentile" type projects like this one.

I cut my florals from both a patterned paper and some Kraft Co-ordinations. I embossed and sanded the latter with Swiss dots. I used a mixture of round, heart, flower and mini button brads for the flowers centers.

I used my WordPlay and Typeset dies for the wording and shadowed the former like I learnt in Tim's Christmas Tags back in 2011! Still 6 months behind in my scrapping, it will probably be March before I start on September too. Oh well, onward and upward.
