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.

12 Months - September

Hi folks. I have been beavering away at the last few 12 Months in View projects the past few days so here is what I have been up to.

1) My Quarterly Zine for Autumn, where I inked the whole A4 sheet with Dylusions using leaf masks (paper and acetate).

I then made up the zine booklet and taped the open edges with Timmy Tissue Tape and added the inked paper leaves too.

I stamped all the 3 month words and then finished off the September page.

2) Recycled Project, Making Stamps. I made up some stamps using the cardboard box and rope/wool technique.

I also liked the pattern left on the brayer after inking up the stamps.

I made up the little pocket/tag using the swirly stamp I made.

3) Dyan Reaveley style page.

I had great fun doing this page in my journal that I have just finished a second page and I have detailed the stages in its making HERE - although you can go watch Dyan do it too - HERE.
