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!

Your Favourite Technique Challenge

This week at Come and Get It Challenges the theme of the challenge is "use your favourite technique". Odd Ball Art is one of the sponsors this week and I have used their image called  Big Eye Girl ~ Patsy Image No. 17 & 17B .  

My favourite technique is to create my background with my gell plate using acrylic paints, stamps and inks etc. Making my own backgrounds allows me to use different colour combos on my cards.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Remember to spot by the Come and Get It blog to see the beautiful creations of the other team members have created to inspire you. Hope you will join in the fun.

  3. I haven't tried this technique yet myself. I've got inks, mists and brushos and don't use them enough, I seem to go for the safe option of DP a lot of the times, but should give it a go. Your background looks really cool!
