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!

Winter Angel

This is one of my project for this week's challenge at Forever Dark.  I made my canvas art board with the image I used from Poppy Seed Graphics called Winter Angel

To create my art board I first glued squares of thin card board packaging on to my board then I painted it all with white Gesso.  The next step was then to glue snowflakes painted with white Gesso on a random pattern on my board. I used 2 colours of purple ink sprays on my board and some silver acrylic spray paint .   Once I had my bard the way I liked it I then added my image that I had coloured with Copics and glitter. I also used purple flock on  the shawl collar . 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.
