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!

I Don't Like Morning People

I made this art journal page as my June's inspirational project for SLS Lines.  I had fun with this great image called Tired Mom Needs Coffee.   The image can be found here. I just love the expression on her face. This was a fun project. 

SLS Lines

The background was created with a gell plate, several colours of acrylic paint and some textured wallpaper.  The pattern turned out very bold and I toned it down with a thin coat of gesso. I added the circles using a lid for a bottle and acrylic paint.  My image was coloured with Copics and a black charcoal pencil. The sentiment was created on my computer.  

Pop over to the SLS Challenge Blog to see the inspiring creations of the design team.  There is still time to join in the current challenge, Monochrome Challenge, just create your card or project using the current theme and enter it here

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
