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!

Butterfly Art Journal

Altered Eclectics is having a mixed media challenge this month and the theme this month is as always anything goes but it must be altered art or mixed media.  No cards, atc etc are not allowed.

I have made any altered butterfly book for this challenge.  I used this book to try  different techniques and ideas that I wanted to try.  All of the pages front and background was created withe a gell plate.  I used materials such as napkins, encaustic wax, inks, cutting dies, sprays, stencils, acrylics, rubber stamps, and texture paste. 

Hope you enjoyed my mixed media adventure.  I had fun making my book.  Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to see the inspiring altered and mixed media projects of our design team. 

I am entering this project in the following challenges:
