My second post for today is my journal page for Journal52's theme - Silly Animal Zoo. As usual I had no idea what to do for this for a while and then had a look through my rubber stamps and found a small lion stamp I have had for years, so attempted to draw a bigger version of him and then water coloured him with Distress Inks.
I have just posted the halfway reminder for Gruffies & Guests Challenge #18 for which it was my turn to choose the theme, and I chose Lavender and Lace. As always there is the option of entering with just Anything Goes too. I used a HM image from one the the CDs to make my card and some pretty lace design BP from Joanna Sheen which has been in my stash for years!
Here is my J52 page for the theme Top 10 Lists from a couple of weeks ago. Although I do make lists they are fairly boring and not really suitable for journalling so I decided to make a list of the top ten things I like to craft - not necessarily in favourite order although the first 4 are! I used some K & Co tag thingies from my scrapping stash and a nice background stamp of lined notepaper to make this page. I had stamped butterflies and then spotted a couple of scrap butterflies that I hadn't put away from the last time I used my scraps so on they went!
Our two words on The Craft Barn's Calendar Challenge for June are Lavender and Dragonflies. I made my altered beer mats using a variety of stamps from my stash, embellishing with some dragonfly brads I have had for many years!
Apologies for not managing to visit everyone last month, life got in the way a bit!
I am now a couple of weeks behind on Journal52 but have today made the Good Advice page. I found a quote which was ideal as it has the words 'good advice' in it and used a couple of Tim's new colour Distress Inks and one of his stencils to make my page.
I am married with 3 grown up children ,4 grandchildren and 2 dogs! I have always done crafting of some sort, originally knitting, cross stitching and tapestry, then I began paper crafting some years ago and haven't looked back!
I like to take photos of my garden for scrapbooking and the one on here is a sunflower that the birds kindly planted for me!
P.S. - Now I have gone back to doing a lot of knitting, crocheting and sewing too!
