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 #08 - Knowledge

Goodness me I seem to be doing challenges by the skin of my teeth these days!

I have been so undecided on what quote to use and wasn't going to do anything THEN I walked past a 6x6 page I did ages ago which was pegged up on my bookshelves.

Lo and Behold it had a Scripture Quote with "Knowledge" in it. I seemed to remember that we needed to do something new for the Craft Barn Challenge and the 6x6 wouldn't fit my 5x7 journal anyways so I got cutting.

For the new page I started with a basic Old Paper distress stain background with additional Pumice Stone crackle stamping.

I fiddled with loads of layouts before making myself "stick" with one and just get on with it!

I stamped with my new freebie Indigo Blu stamps and my peg stamps and really wasn't sure but just kept going until I thought it was OK.

So my challenge for this fortnight done with just over 6 hours to the deadline!

A fab quote (isn't there a hymn with these lines as well?).I love the background.

I like them both. But the final entry for the CB challenge is stunning. You did a great job "sticking to it," and also sticking it. Great challenge entry.
