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 August Art Challenge

The Challenge this month was to use a technique we liked from the past 6 months of doing this challenge.

My favourite by far was June's Distress Colour Blocking. I used 4 colours for that one and have chosen to use only 3 this time around.

Going by the quote Bernice asked us to include I went with blues, greens and purples for the sky, grass and water.

I did the colour blocking last night and finished it off today (son gone to scout camp for the week so lots of crafting time - yippee).

After I finished the page in my journal I realised I needed to do a page in a round robin journal too so I did another one with a different quote.

Wondering if mine could do with a couple more clouds at the bottom? Hmmm?

Just added 2.....

Wow, I love this technique. Never would have guessed you used your distress pads. Love both of these spreads, and of course, the pink and green one you made in June.
