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.

12 Months in View - April Calendar

Got my April Calendar page ready last night. I made my first stamp using the lino tiles and cutters I had for Christmas! I made a raindrop shape for April Showers. I realise that I can make the stamps just the right size for my journal to fit all the dates in this way.

The background is Cloudy Blue paint dabber with Salty Ocean ink around the edges. The raindrops are stamped with Ultramarine Staz-On. The Month name I made up of spare diecut letters I had saved.

I'm leaving the edges for the flower of the month and other arty challenges.

When I came here directly from the Craft Barn, I went right to your R post. So I didn't see your calendar pages. This is a great start with such a cute block stamp you made for your days!
