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!

Doctor, Doctor

CS Designs is having another exciting recycle challenge this week. Anything goes but must be recycling. 

This is what I started with for the project but in the end did not use two of the wooden books and the old silver penny bank.  

This is my completed project. 

This is what I started my project with.

I was excited to use two of CS Design's from their new Vintage images. I coloured my box lettuce green.  I also used copies of some original prescriptions that I found at an antique store in Superior, Arizona this winter.  They were dated 1919 and mostly came from the state of New York.  They were a real find. For the background I used the antique paper bag .

This wooden book that I antiqued originally was part of a set of three that had a wooden teddy bear sitting on it.  The teddy bear was used in another project.  I used Kroma and red acrylic paint to get the aged effect on the book.

I added a wooden knob to the top of the box , added a metal star , more prescriptions and a ink pen.   I love the new vintage images that can now be found in the CS Designs Digital Stamp Store
