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.

TH #08 August Tag

I was spurred on to do the Tim Holtz August tag as I just happened to have some of the stamps Tim used. I soon realised that mine were a smaller version of the ones Tim used so aren't as dynamic on the same tag size (perhaps I ought to have made the tag smaller - all great in hindsight!)

I'm sure most of you know I'm not as at home with stamping as other techniques and to be quite honest I prefer the backing to the finished tag. I did like using some markers on the stamps though to highlight different elements, especially the stamp on the ticket stamp.

But guess what, not a single Distress Marker in this craftcorner. Wondering if I will be converted after attending Tim's UK workshop at the end of the month? Stranger things have happened.

Hi BJ. I don't own a single Tim stamp (let alone Distress Marker) so I'm impressed you even had the stamps in "small". I think your tag looks great. The background stamps add real interest too. I haven't used the colouring parts of the stamp technique on my tag (oops) I was kind of doing it from memory and missed that step, but it works really well doesn't it. Your game spinner embellie is fab - love the way you've put it through the O in journey - NICE touch!

Thanks for your kind comments, they mean a lot. Hugs MMx

haha, love your tag, I didn't use distress markers either. They are a bit too expensive for my budget. Did you convert, after the course? =)
