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!

Anything Goes Challenge at Fitztown

This is my project for this week's challenge at Fitztown, Anything Goes.  I used two of the antique cars from Fitztown's antique car collection for my project, you can find these cars here

I made my tag out of upholstery fabric  that I cut out with Tim Holtz's large tag die cut that I glued on to some heavy craft paper to give the project some strength and then I added some stitching.  My next step was to layer my gears, cars and sentiments. The cars and trim of the sentiments were coloured with Copic Markers.  My last step was to add some dark pearls, a jute cord and Diamond Glaze for the headlights. 

There is still time to join in this challenge.  We would love to see your art work.  Just create your project and enter it here
