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.

Tag & Scrapping

The 12 Months in View Challenge Blog had a summer tag today so I did my little tag for my July pocket. I used some distress paint for the backing and stencils and distress ink on top. I'm entitling it Summer Nights with its pearly moon and stars.

Totally inspired by the WOYWW page of Danie May. She used octagons for a LO for Scouts. My next pending set of photos just happened to be my son's Scouts at the St. George's Day parade back in April this year. Also I had recently bought a set of Hexagon dies (X-cut) so I gave it a go. A fab way to get lots of photos on one layout, I used 7 of the 8 I had printed of the occasion. I decorated the edge with a chicken wire stencil and bubble wrap stamping. The alphabet dies are Tim Holtz - Typeset and Quickutz - Magnolia.
