About Me

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!

I made this card for a card swap at technique Junkies this week using a technique I found in the last addition of their newsletter.  The technique I used was to colour the image using Dylusions Ink Spray as water colours.  

I stamped by poppies with Stazon Ink onto water colour paper then I sprayed a very small amount of various colours of Dylusion Ink Sprays and a mist of water on a piece of plastic or craft sheet . My next step was to use a small paint brush to colour the poppies. I like the intense colour of the inks. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
