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!

Stardust amd Pumpkin - Paper Piecing

This is my second card for the paper piecing challenge at Fitztown.  There is still time to join our this challenge just create your card and enter it here.  
I made this card with an image  from the Stardust and Pumpkin collection from Fitztown.  I first printed and cut out my image in a fine patterned peach paper. My next step was to print and cut out the dress  and hair band in an coordinating green and peach dotted pattern paper. Once I added the dress and hairband  to my image I coloured her wings and hair with my Copic Markers. 
To complete my card I added my image to layers of coordinating papers, added some faux stitching, bling and a flower.
Have a creative day.
