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!

Altered Puzzle Game Piece

Thought I would try something different for this weeks challenge at Come and Get IT Challenges and decided on a altered puzzle piece. The theme of the challenge is to feature a critter and I decided to use this digital  image from All Dressed Up called Pirate Puppy

This was a fun project to make and once I had painted it with gesso I painted the game piece with Acrylic paint. My next step was to add some stamped images from my collection of stamps to create a collage.  I used Distress Ink on the edges of the piece and Copic Markers to colour the images.  To complete the puzzle I added some die cut clouds and a little shell I had made out of shrink plastic. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.   i am entering my project in the following challenges:
