All About Me Blog Hop is here!


Welcome to this blog hop - you should have arrived here by starting at Mel's blog. Thanks to Mel who has been the inspiration behind this project and hop. You should have then visited six other very talented people the last being the lovely Deb at paperturtle. Welcome to my interpretation and I hope you have a coffee whilst you sit and peruse before moving on.

As you have already seen I've housed myself in a little tin - Cherry's Curio - which is gessoed, painted, spritzed and stamped. I chose it as I like small spaces and rounded things. Thanks to Jennie from The Artistic Stamper for the tin.

My mini book has two sides the first I focused on my environment and the objects that make me happy every day. This is the blue side - the sea is very important to me as a source of renewal and ideas.

The pink side represents all the things that I enjoy or are fundamental parts of me.Here are a few of my favourite pages.


The mini book was painted, collaged, doodled and stamped.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed yourself. This has been an interesting process and a way refining ideas I had about myself at this moment in hystory. Thanks Mel. As you can see I didn't choose a style or a theme other than All About Me - which has surprised me in itself - I think it would be interesting to do another project maybe focusing on the roles I adopt through the day in a particular style. Always another idea for another day.
You should now see what the lovely Heather has in store for you.
Have a great day and thanks for joining in the fun and exploration. Please leave me a comment and one of you will be picked to receive a little gratitude.

  11. Cherry ~ I love the way your project has turned out! I'm always in awe when I see the layering of stamps and paint and gesso (things that I'm kind of afraid of!) I love that you made each side a theme. Very well done! :o)
