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!

Make Your Own Background Challenge

Come and Get It Challenges this week has a make your own background challenge this week. Aurora Wings is one of the sponsors and I fell in love with this  Big Eye Girl w/ Curls Sipping from a Flower Cup digi. 

I coloured my image with my Copic Markers and glitter pen. The back ground was made with my Gelli Plate, acrylic paint and several stencils.  I really like the way the background turned out.  It is nice to be able create the paper to match the image.
