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 #09 September Tag

I have been sitting on this blog post for some time. Firstly as my order for the crinkle ribbon took an age to arrive, second as I made a few tags in the same style and one was for a SWAP and I didn't wish to give the game away before it was received.

I made 3 tags this month one like Timmy's and 2 with more of his workshop influence.

I bought some embossing paste some time ago and this was the first time I had used it properly, so thanks for the nudge Tim.

Really loved the colours in this month's tag, had to make do with my distress pads as I didn't have the stains in the same colours but no big deal.

So glad my workshop stencil was the sunshiny one, I love it. I had a honeycomb stencil and the others I made myself.

The butterfly stamps are all from different sets, mix and match is what I say.

Enjoyed staining my ribbon and then stencilling on top, what a great effect.

Oh and as I mopped up the ink with a spare piece of paper, I made this journal page too.
Yep - a fun time this month playing with Timmy's techniques and the bright colours - Brill.
