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 - Pentecost

Yes I know it is a leaf die but I thought it sort of lent itself to being like fire too so I used it for my 12 Months In View Pentecost page. It has 5 layers which is quite appopriate as well.

I used masks/stencils for the background with various distress inks. The face is a stencil too. There is a "tongue of fire" above the face to symbolise the coming of the Holy Spirit at the first Pentecost which was 50 days after the Passover. I did my doodle, liquid pearls and stickles thing again too.

Gorgeous page BJ, I love the colours and symbolism you've used. Brilliant thinking with the leaf die, it works perfectly.

Great page and I love that you've used the leaf die for something else - things like this should be able to be used for other things.
