About Me

My photo
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!

Mad Hatter Art Journal Page

The book Alice in Wonderland turned 150 years old this month and I thought it was fitting that I create am art journal page using this great Mad Hatter digital image from SLS Lines, one of our sponsors this month at Not Just Cards


To make my journal page I added several different colours of acrylic paints to my background and used a brayer to mix the colours. I added my Mad Hatter image to the page and colured the image with my Copics, gell pen and a glitter pen.  To complete the journal page I added a coordinating piece of ribbon, washi tape and a sentiment that I created on my computer. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Join us at Not Just Cards this month.  Just create your project and enter it here
