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!

Life is not a matter of .....

Can you belive it is June first and time for another Altered Art/Mixed Media challenge at Altered Eclectics. I decided to do a mixed media canvas this month using a Found Relative photo of Tim Holtz. 

My first step in creating my canvas was to use a few stencils and molding paste to give the project some texture.  My next step was to layer some tissue paper over the texture.  I next used a combination of stains and paint to add more depth.  

My finishing steps were to arrange my photo, tags, papers and findings on my canvas. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Pop over to our challenge blog, Altered Eclectics to be inspired by our talented design team.  Join us this month in this challenge.
