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!

Altered Box

Time for another great challenge at Creative Artiste.  The theme of the challenge is anything mixed media goes and I have altered a cellphone box for my project.

Our sponsor this challenge is Scrapmatts.  Scrapmatts has a great collection of media products. 

I used this gear stencil for my box.  It is a perfect stencil for a small box , card or tag.

Closer look

I used molding paste on my stencil and coloured the box with several colours of Inka-Gold.  To complete my box I added several findings, a gear, clock and wings. I also used some gems and starred washi tape. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us in this anything goes mixed media challenge.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring projects of our design team.
