About Me

Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Day 2 – Copic Sections

This is my second card this week as card captain for the Yahoo Group Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps.     


I  used a technique from an issue of Technique Junkies (June/July 2011) called Copic sections. I think a better name for the technique would be faux mosaics.
I used a glue to create the faux grout lines and Mike's mini fish, star fish and shell stamps to make the beach design. I then coloured the fish and the background with my Copics, although you could use several other methods to colour the card rather than the Copics such as your chalks or Pearl Ex. I used my EX punch to create the bubble design on my background paper.

My creative thought today is by Bo Bennett:
"Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity."
Thanks for stopping by.
