About Me

My photo
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!

Try a New Technique

This card was made for an upcoming technique swap at Technique Junkies. I used a technique from their August/September issue called blocked background tutorials.

I used a fern unmounted rubber stamp from my stash for the background.  the sentiment is by Inkadinkado and the butterfly is a Provo Craft die cut out of a piece of Encaustic art that I made in my first Encaustic art class.  

Thanks for stopping by.
