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!

Heritage Plaque

I just finished a encaustic wax class and decided to use what I learned on this vintage plaque I was Making.  The digital image from the vintage collection from CS Designs.   I thought the image suited my design of burlap, old lace, and flowers. To check out CS Design's beautiful art work check it out here

This is what I started with.

Here are some closer views.

The white flower was handmade by my friend Paige and I made the pink flowers.  The flowers, burlap, and frame were dipped in bees wax.  I coloured my image with Panpastels and added everything to a wooden cutting board. To complete the project I added a metal heritage tag from my stash.   

I am entering this project in the following challenges:  

2 Creative Chicks - 24 Anything Goes
Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
Rhedd's Creative Spirit - Anything Goes (Mixed Media Altered Art / Mixed Media ONLY)
