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!

60's Splash

 I made this project using a tea box I had been saving in the stash and I thought it would make a good box for my findings. I used many of CS Designs images for the project. I started with the beautiful 60's Splash Art digital image from Chris' Arty Montage Digital Stamps. You can find the image here

This is what I started with to make my project. 

The image reminded me of 60's Art and music so I printed the image on a  music sheet and then added a circle design to the box to mimic the circles in the design that reminded me of old records. I coloured the image with my Copic Markers and Ink Intense pencils.

For the inside lid of the box I layered many of the wonderful sentiments of CS Design. These sentiments can be found at http://cs-designs.blogspot.ca/…/cs-designs-artistic-sentime…

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
