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!

Having Tea in the Woods and Scary Spiders

It is time for an inspirational challenge at Forever Dark this month and this is my project for the challenge. 

I found this wood picture at the thrift store and thought it would make a base for my project. 

I took the wood picture apart and painted a background to accent my digital image that I was using for this month's challenge. The image I used for the project is by Jade Dragonne our sponsor this month.  I also added a moon, fence, raven, bats and some skeleton heads to complete the project. 

This is my second project for this challenge and I used another image from Jade Dragonne , our sponsor this week. 

I coloured my image with copic markers, glitter pen and PanPastels. I added my image to some spider pattern paper from my stash and added a spider  to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us this month at Forever Dark.  Pop over to their challenge blog to see the inspiring projects of the design team.
