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!

Paper Piecing

This card was created for a yahoo group upcoming swap. The technique is paper piecing. I stamped my paper with an old stamp of mine by Anita. I then used three different papers to do the paper piecing of the flower. I stamped the background paper with a pretty flourish stamp by Quiet Fire Designs. To complete the card I added a couple of brads, sepia glossy accents and rick rack trim.

I think the colouring of the papers used and the old flower design gives the card an antique look.

Be creative everyone.
