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.

52 weeks - week #03 - part 1

Still not settled into a rhythm with all the challenges I am doing this year, but had a mind for a red background for this week's pages so went with that.

My fingers are still red from the Dylusions of last night! I popped a piece of scrap paper behind my journal so I could get a piece for the tip-in in my diary for the Documented Life Project (DLP) too.

The DLP seems to be a week ahead of the others and their prompt this week (4) was to write a secret message and paint over it leaving a key word, so that is exactly what I did. My diary is only 14cmx7cm so it is only diddy.

I took the theme of singing/rejoicing from Psalm 5 and added some lips for the smile prompt in the Journal 52 challenge. I love the thought that there is a song in our heart for Jesus.

The Craft Barn prompt isn't up until tomorrow so the blank page is awaiting that, and I suppose it will have to be lyrics this week considering. The Craft Barn put up 2 words each fortnight so I thought I could do one a week.

Another "red" project was to make some more tags for church, which I did yesterday too.

Fab pages BJ, I particularly love the rich red in your Journal 52 book, looks amazing.
Huge hugs x x x

I see you've got many challenges going this year. More than last. I'm going to join you for the Craft Barn challenge, too. At least that's the plan. That and Journal 52 will be more than I can possibly handle this year, I fear. I love what you have done with red, though. And I look forward to seeing all the prompts come together over the next few months, too.

OOPS, that should have read "will be as much as I can possibly handle," not MORE THAN. Duh. It's late here and I need sleep, because my brain isn't thinking clearly, I guess.
