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.

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.
