About Me

Okanagan, BC, Canada
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 made this mix media tag for a tag exchange using Prima Dolls.  I used a stencil, Gell Plate and acrylic paints to create the background for the tag then added a coloured doily and lace with ribbon.

The Prima doll was coloured with Copics and some fun scrapbook paper was used to paper piece the dress and boots.  To complete my card I added some pre-made butterflies and ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  I am entering this tage in the following challenges:
