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.

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!

Altered Canvas - Contact Paper Transfer Technique

I used a contact paper transfer technique to create this mixed media canvas for this month's Altered Electrics' challenge. 

To create my canvas I collaged different designer papers, napkins, and dictionary papers on my canvas along with postage stamps.  I also added some stamped sentiments and spots acrylic paint.   

A collection of magazine images and photographs and contact paper  were used to create the top layer. I photocopied my images then added then to my contact paper.  Once I had my images attached to my contact paper I soaked  the backs of of the images to remove the backing of the images leaving just the outline and added the images to my canvas. 

I used the following sites for inspiration and directions how to do the transfer technique. 


I hope you will join us this month at Altered Eclectics.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring projects of our talented design team.
