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.

Tim Holtz Tag Book 2013

At last my Timmy Tag book is in a state worth showing, although there is still room for more journaling here and there.

I used black and white photographs tinted with Vintage Photo - what else? The pad I got from the workshop is rather a different more reddy Vintage Photo to the one I already had.

Here are all the tags as they arrived home, so I did do quite a bit on the day warranting the extremely inky fingers.

Here's my craft table as I was putting the book together.

I made 2 physical updates to the book.

1) I lined both of the backs of the covers with an acetate tag. The front for strength as the metal bits are rather heavy, and the back one for protection when the book is put down.

2) I filled out the spine with cardboard spacers. One either side of the kraft tags so 10 in all.

I got rather nifty with my new mini attacher and attached all the photographs with it! Also the tape tie is attached at the back so it doesn't get lost.

So, without further ado, here are the photos of all the pages. I have made them small for the main page but you can click on them to get the big version should you wish.

Oh my, what a project, and such a wonderful memento of a great day.
