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!

By the Sea I Long to Be

It is July and time for another great challenge ay Eclectic Ellapu this month.  The theme of the challenge is sea side or summer colours. I chose to do a tag book with  sea theme.  I used my large Tim Holts' tag die to cut out my tag book and painted the background with acrylic paints then added real sand and some little shells and pieces of blue stone .  The fish, shells and sea weed are either rubber stamps from my collection or digital stamps.  

Some closer looks 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.
