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 - Bluebells & Trees

The flower of the month on 12 Months in view is the Bluebell.

We have a plethora of these in our garden, although they are not in full bloom as yet.

I made the origami bluebell earlier in the week.

I drew a Bluebell stem on my calendar page and added one of the Spring quotes around its leaves.

I then did my zine page for May using the Philip Larkin poem called "The Trees".

I used a couple of bare tree stamps and filled in with peg stamps, adding some around the border too.

So refreshing to see the trees coming into leaf.

Nice BJ! Lucky you to have bluebells growing in your yard. I have grape hyacinths which are kind of the same. Really like the origami bluebell and all your pages!
