About Moi

I was born in June 1981, I'm a hearing impaired paper-crafter who loves all things crafty. I sew, although I'm still very much a novice at sewing. I bake and cook hopefully all kinds of delicious treats. I have a huge passion for photography and the camera {yes I'm old school I still use an actual camera} is never far from me. I also love creative writing from making up sentiments/verses for my cards and other paper-craft projects to penning some fiction. I am an avid reader and I may even throw in some book reviews on here too!

Art Journaling and possible MMM entry

Yes I've been art journaling again in fact I've become quite addicted to it.

This time I've aged the paper using old paper distress ink, then used either cocoa brown memento or archival sepia inks to stamp the backgrounds.  Because I wanted dimension to these pages I have decoupaged some of the background and added a couple squares of paper.

I'm not really sure this fits the MMM requirements as it is a background but I'm not sure a background to journaling is the same as a background to a card, either way I enjoyed it and I hope anyone who reads this finds the MMM blog via the link above and supports them.


  1. Sall ..this is fabulous! I am love the way you experiment and try new techniques. Great work! Suzanne x

  2. Wow! Great art journaling pages, Sall - I love your stamped background and think it's great for the challenge over at Make My Monday, hun. It doesn't have to be a card to enter and I know from my own journal that you started with a blank page to make it. Thanx for joining us at MMM for the challenge.
