About Me

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.

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.
