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!

Mix Media Tag

I am this Mix Media Tag  for a tag swap at Inky Fun Stampers this month.  The theme of the swap is to create a tag with a face on it. I used a Prima Cling stamp for the challenge called  .   
I stamped the image on my tag material and coloured her with my Copic Markers. I made a mask and covered the coloured image,  I then proceeded to create a background with acrylic paints, gell plate and several stencils.   Once I had the background o where I liked it I took a charcoal pencil and created a shadow around the image to give it some depth.   I also added some stars to my ladies dress. 

To complete my Tag I added some numbers, lace , sentiment by Stampin Up and a bow.  Hope my partner in the challenge likes my tag.
