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.

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.
