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.

12 Months - January Envelope

The art challenge for January on the 12 months blog is to decorate an envelope. How could I pass by the chance to add the envelope in which I received some goodies from our blog host Bernice. Well it did have some lovely stamped pears on it.

I covered the rest with some giveaway papers and added some diecuts from another swap. I guess I didn't follow the art challenge at all but I did use what I had. I reinforced the envelope edge with some washi tape.

At the moment the envelope stays gaping open, I think it thinks it is a basking shark! I'll see how it goes but can always add a velcro fastener.

Gosh it is the February calendar pages next, the last month in this challenge.

Fun and funky. I love it. I got a laugh out of the comment about the envelope thinking it's a basking shark. Too funny. And using what you have on hand should be a priority in any challenge you participate in. Way to go.

That looks lovely - and yes I agree, using what you have on hand is important.
