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 Junk Journaling too. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Art Journaling, 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, but am plagued by a bad back. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I guess I am officially retired now. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

It is funny how things happen. I was looking for some suitably coloured card for the lettering on my latest scrap-page when I spotted a decorated envelope I received in a swap which was just right.

I couldn't bear to cut it up but thought I must have some Dylusion waste in the scrap tin. I did but it needed some more colour, so out came the spray booth (pizza box!) and I gave it the once over.

There was quite a bit of ink left round the edges on the craft sheet so I made a tag too. But there was still more left over and then the cogs in my brain came together and I decided to stick my 12x12 card on the ink as well!

I dabbed some more, added some water, dried and distress inked the edges and added some lines and dots. I cut my photos with my new hexagon dies. I found a flower the right colour, also from a swap and some ric-rac from some happy mail too. A couple of gromlets and my favourite alphabet, Tim Holtz's Alphabetical.

I really enjoyed making the backing for this page.
