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.

October - 12 Months in view

For the 12 months challenge I have done the October page in my zine. I love how the quote I found sees the positive side of the falling leaves as in the opening up of the view and seeing more. I used up my left over metal leaf and a few other spare diecut leaves, birds and acorns.

I have also done my tag using the techniques on this month's recycled article.

I swiped acrylic paints for the backing with some glitter glue spots.

I stamped some stylised Cow Parsley on acetate (our printer has enough problems with paper let alone acetate!!). I stapled these onto the tag.

I added some pieces of washi tape to anchor the acetate, then added some fibres and wrote "grateful" down the side.

Gorgeous makes BJ, I adore the warm colours and those book page leaves are superb. Fab techniques on your tag too, love the acetate element and the pocket is adorable.
Huge hugs x x x

Your October leaves are divine. I love the metal leafing. You made the quote come to life, too.

That tag is fantastic. I would never have thought to use washi tape to hold the acetate. I've never heard of cow parsley before, but it is beautiful. Truly awesome.
