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!

Kimono card

After my technique card yesterday for Enjoy Michael Strong Stamp Yahoo group I decide to paint another piece of paintable wallpaper with gesso and cut out the kimono pattern using Michael’s kimono metal die cutter and a butterfly using Joy Craft Cutting and embossing stencil, I then went looking for my Sparkling H20 to colour the kimono.

I love the way the kimono and butterfly sparkle and the way the colour adheres to the crevasses of the paper, there is no need for bling on this card.

Thank you for stopping by.
