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!

I Don’t Want Life To Imitate Art .....PTT#48

I created this card for Party Time Tuesday's Anything Goes challenge (PTT #48) this week. Join the fun and check out their challenges at:


When I was looking through my stash of unmounted rubber stamps and came across this rubber stamp that I have never used and I am not sure who the company is that made such a beautiful stamp. I think the lady is very interestingly dressed in a colourful patterned outfit. The stamp has a quote written on the brim of the hat by Carrie Fisher: "I don't want life to imitate art. I want life to BE art."

I coloured the image with my markers and glitter pen and added some bling. I then layered the image with some interesting papers and added round paper clips that mimic the design on her face and dress. Lastly I added the word "Life" using a stamp by Stampin Up and the word "Art" with letters from an alphabet set.

Hope you enjoyed the card. Thanks for stopping by.
