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.

TH #10 - October Tag

Always a double challenge in October for me as I have to find a different theme for my tag as well as attempt the techniques. Although I have to say I love the moon on Tim's Tag so I went from there.

Usually find it hard to stray from the colours Tim uses but the thought of "Blue Moon" came into my head so blues it was for me. Luckily I had some royal blue glitter and a moon shape already cut out in black card from some iris folding I did some years ago.

I added some acrylic paints in with some distress paints for the background marbling and used ultramarine staz-on for the stamping. As I hadn't got the frame die I used the frame embossing folder instead and inked it with Chipped Sapphire.

I used my Dymo to print the words and finished off with some stars, navy ribbon and tinsel for a magical feel. Love my mystical "Blue Moon" tag.

Crazy house-moving (family home of 40 years to be cleared!) means I've fallen off the Craftyblogland wagon lately - but wow, I love this take on Tim's tag... the moody blues are delicious, and I love your sparkly moon!
