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!

Canvas Collage

Time for another great mixed media challenge at Creative Artiste.  I decided this month to do a canvas collage.  Our Sponsor this month is DecoArt. Check out their prize this month then join us in our challenge. 

No automatic alt text available.

To make my canvas I used several DecoArt products including a Andy Skinner stencil called Made to Measure, acrylic gesso and acrylic paints.  Other products used on my canvas were a rubber stamp by Stampington, clock and gear cutting die, designer paper, some metal findings and a Tim Holtz ruler.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to Creative Artiste's blog to be inspired by our talented design team.

  10. Photo Canvas Collage prints are the ideal way to display lots of your stunning images without buying masses of bulky picture frames or cluttering up the house. With the use of smartphones and readily available digital cameras, we have become a nation of amateur photographers, using Instagram to capture our favourite moments. Out of this we now have some incredible photographs we are sure to treasure forever; the problem is there are just too many of them, making the task almost impossible when
    choosing images to display in our homes
