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 #11 - Mistake

The Craft Barn words for their challenge this fortnight are "Mountain" and "Mistake".

I was tempted by the John Denver song with "mountain momma" in it but then found the quote by Friedrich Nietzsche, 

"Without music, life would be a mistake." 

I used one of my new stencils which I bought at The Craft Barn's extravaganza weekend. I sprayed the excess ink on it with water and turned it over to create the ghosting on which I wrote the words.

I guess my picture is more like a Country Road after all.

Lovely page.

Oh BJ, this is wonderful. And I really like the tip about adding water to make the stencil last longer with a ghost print. I'll have to remember that one. I really like your colors too. There's a lot of movement in this work, and I guess it comes from the "music."

Love the original way in which you wrote the quote and the white pen work.

So sorry for the late visit BJ, but I'm really glad I made it; your page is beautiful and I love how you did the ghosting and then wrote in it. The quote is fabulous and so true :D
