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!

Altered Mannequin

Time for another mixed media/ altered challenge at Altered Eclectics. I have chosen to alter a mannequin for this months challenge.  

I used many found pieces for my project including old jewelry, lace, beads, hair barrette,ribbon and old metal belts. 

To get the  antique copper look to my project I used a combination of acrylic paint, Modern Options Sophisticated Finishes of Copper and Patina Green and DecoArt Heavenly Hues of Color Hunter Green.
