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!

Mixed Media Challenge

We have a mixed media challenge at Come and Get It challenges this week and this canvas is my project this week. The cute steam punk image is called Sad Teddy Bear and is by one of our sponsors SLS Lines

Our definition of mixed media for this challenge is 

"For this challenge mixed media means creating a card, tag or project using any of the following in addition to the usual stamps, digital images and inks:
Mediums that add texture such as fabric, texture paste, gesso, embossing paste, 
Mediums that give dimension such as die cuts, chipboard, embellishments, recycled material
Mediums used for different techniques and colours such as watercolor, alcohol inks, acrylic paints
Project created using tools such as a gelli plate, stencils etc
In other words a card, tag or project that has at least 2 of the above mediums." 
To make my canvas I used several stencils with molding paste, a selection of inks, die cut gears and  Apothecary bottles by Tim Holtz, acrylic paints, and micro bead.

Thank you for stopping by.  Pop over to the Come and Get it Challenge blog to be inspired by the projects of the design team members have created for you.
