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!

Butterflies in Bloom

My card tonight was made for a Paper Pretties challenge where you had to colour your image in something other than markers. I choose this pretty digi image from Paper Pretties called Buttterflies and Blooms and went in search of my pencil crayons. It has been a long time since they have been out of the drawer. I could not get my butterfly to have the depth I wanted so I then painted it with a Pearl Ex colour called oyster. I layered papers and the flowers to give some depth to the card. I edged the papers, rounded the corners, added bling, and cord to finish the card off.

Well that is all the crafting for the night. The messy craft room will have to wait until tomorrow. I seem to be more creative working in a mess, at least that is what I tell myself.

Have a creative day.
