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!

Water, Water......

 I am so excited to announce that I am part of The Mirror Crack'd design team.  What a wonderful group of very talented ladies I get to work with.  

For the purpose of defining mix media at The Mirror Crack'd it is a mixture of any of the following and more besides:-

Texture paste, Gesso, inks both spray and from ink pads, embossing powders, paints, chalks, gilding wax, and gilding flakes. Found items such as old keys, buttons (granny's button box is a great place to look for some fabulous old and intricate buttons), zip pulls, zips, recycled cans, bottles, boxes etc.

Our theme this month is water

Splish, splash, splosh!
Water is such an integral part of our lives, the weather, rain, snow or storms. The landscape, the ocean, rivers and waterfalls. In our homes, cooking and cleaning. So many sports involve water, leisure and pleasure!
Show us your inspiration, what will you create?
We are intrigued, will it be a scrap page, a canvas, a card, a 3D project or a tag?

Some of the products I used to make my canvas are:

modeling paste
acrylic paints
spray inks
rubber stamps
digital images
real shells
artificial shells
distress ink
cheese cloth
small alphabet tiles
