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.

Q&L #02 J52 and Psalm 8

Oh dear all the weekly and fortnightly challenges seem to be getting the better of me.

Here's my Craft Barn entry for "Dazzle". It depicts a girl dancing so fulfills the Journal 52 "Building Character" prompt too as I love to dance. The Lyrics are from the Bill Haley and the Comets song, "Razzle Dazzle".

Also my Psalm 8 page.

Came a bit unstuck here. Hadn't seen the printout cards on the original prompt post so thought there weren't any - bother.

Really fancied green as a backing but the Psalm was all about the heavens. So I have quoted the words from the beginning and the end of the psalm.

What a great way to combine two challenges. Impressive, to say the least. I'm really glad all these journaling challenges have not gotten you down.

Brilliant vibrant colours on your dazzle page. I love the background on the Psalms page too.

Visiting from The Craft Barn - Beautiful pages BJ, I especially like the way you put the words on the dancer.
I gave up some challenges, I found I was getting mixed up and missing deadlines & not ejoying the play. Sometimes less is more. Don't put unnecessary pressure on yourself *hug* :o) x
