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!

Whenever Possible Choose Adventure

This is my creation for this weeks Not Just Cards' Challenge.  I used one of our sponsor The Stamping Dragon's image for my Art Journal page.   I thought my gelli print page suited the image and I found this sentiment on Pinterest that seemed to work well with it. 

Products I used for this art journal page are:
  • The Stamping Dragon image - Aimee Goes Steampunk
  • Sentiment from Pinterest - printed on tissue paper
  • Coloured with Copics, glitter, acrylic paint
  • Butterfly by Inkadinkado - stamped on acrylic paper, coloured with acrylic paints, glitter, diamond glaze and white tissue paper
  • Background paper- gelli plate print (stencil, molding paste and assorted acrylic paints)
  • Assorted Die Cuts and bling
I hope you will join us at our new challenge blog.  Pop over to Not Just Cards blog and take a look at the projects our creative design team have created to inspire you.
