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 - Art Challenge

The Art Challenge for September over on 12 Months in View is to create some decorative papers with everyday items.

I used scraps of neutral coloured patterned papers.

I covered them with Autumnal coloured paints.

I stencilled them with home made stencils.

I stamped them with household items.

Cut up into rectangles and then patchworked onto my page.

I added my latest craft club pieces from the "Metal Effects" class.

a) Embossed Metal Tape covered card coloured with Alcohol inks.

b) Gilding Flakes - the latest addition to my stash!

Then I added some of the flying birds from my new die.

Yep - just HAD to add the words "FLY SOUTH" as Winter is looming and the birds will be leaving for warmer climes.

Finally some white pen highlights and doodles to finish.
