Different

Another entry onto my journal pages. This time a double page spread with the theme of different.


Why Different? Well, since March a lot of things are different in my life – new home, new doctor, dentist and hairdresser. Yeah we finally got a dentist here in Wales after travelling back and forth for over 4 years. ha ha


In my crafting also a lot of different things for me to try. This journaling, with it’s doodling and writing is very new for me as well as some of the inking techniques.

I’ve not used acrylic paint before in my crafting but have used it quite a bit this weekend in a couple of projects. Using chipboard is something different as well, but i’m not ready to show that project yet. I’ve used digital stamps for the first time and have a few samples to share later. Beading is not entirely new for me but i’ve not enjoyed it as much before.


Another very different thing I want to try is crocheting but i’m going to have to go online for instructions and be very patient with myself as i’ve tried and failed before.

Fabulous pages Sue. Love the background colours :)

I know a brilliant site with videos of how-to crochet with all the different stitches on it.. I used it myself to brush up on my skills as it's ages since I did any..it's also the site where I learnt to crochet by keep playing & re-watching the videos.. I can always let you have it.

Lovely to hear you have your own doctor & dentist now :)
