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 - Coronation Tag

We have started Summer and June on 12 Months in View and yesterday's prompt was to make a tag or page from the inspiration on their introduction page.

Yesterday, 2nd June was the 60th anniversary of our Queen's coronation in 1953 so it gave me a chance to get out my saved up pictures of her and make a tag to commemorate the day.

I stamped crowns on tissue to make the background, I made it all sparkly as befitting the occasion.

Here's hoping we get another pocket in the giveaway to put it in. It should go with the flower of the month as she is truly our English Rose.

Gawd bless 'Er! This anniversary sort of passed me by, I thought they'd make another massive fuss about it. A lovely tag, love your stampin on tissue. x
