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!

Make Stencil the Star

I was looking around the blog world today looking for a new art journal project and came across Mix Media World's make a Stencil the Star challenge.  I have several stenciled faces and thought I would use this one by Stencil Girl to create my page called Pretty as a Peacock.   

I stenciled my face using  black molding paste. The paper I used for the face was a piece of Gelli paper from my stash that I had created a long time ago.   I loved how this stencil turned out.  My next step was to use some water colour paper and colour the paper randomly with the colours similar to the face then with white acrylic paint I stenciled  using a Circle and Splatter stencil by Crafter's Work Shop.   I also randomly rubber stamped some feathers on the background with a old stamp by PSX. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
