About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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!

I was invited to participate in the angel challenge at Crafting by Designs as their guest designer this week. I was thrilled to be asked. 

I decided to do an art journal mixed media page for the challenge using a digital image from my stash by Michelle Perkett.  I used my gell plate to create my background along with a stencil and some stars that I die cut. I used modelling paste to create the "believe" sentiment.   My image was coloured with Copics, white gell pen and a glitter pen.

Hope you will join this fabulous challenge this week at Crafting by Designs.  Pop over to their challenge blog to see the creations of their very talented design team.
