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!

Chipboard Challenge at Creative Artiste

Happy New Year Everyone.  Welcome to Creative Artiste's first challenge of 2016.   The theme of the challenge is chipboard and I decided to make this collage canvas for this challenge.

  3. Hi Judy, Wow what an absolute Stunner of a canvas, I adore this and more so as anything to do with boat or sailing brings back memories, and my dad whom I adored was a Fisherman, but alas he died when I was 18 and I miss him so much...
