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!

321 Challenge at Come and Get It Challenges

Come and Get It Challenges this week has a 321 Challenge 3 embellishments, 2 papers, 1 image. Scrapper’s Delight is one of the sponsors and I fell in love with this  Harlequin 1 Digi.  I think she is beautiful. 

I coloured the image before I made my total plan for the card.  Once I had coloured her I realized that I did not have any patter paper in my stash to go with the colours I had chosen so I decided to make my own pattern paper for the card. I used a diamond stencil for the background and blue acrylic paint.  My second paper was from my stash but did not quite fit my plan so I outlined the diamonds and edges with a blue pen to make them stand out and tie the papers together.  My three embellishments are the stars dye cut out of foil sliver paper. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you pop over to the Come and Get It Challenges blog to see the cards the other designers created to inspire you.
