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 Heart Box

Time for another great challenge at Creative Artiste this month. I decided to alter a heart shape box for my project this challenge.  Our sponsor this month is Tando Creative. Tando Creative sells a great number of the products that I used to alter my box.

Image may contain: sky

This is the box that I started with.

I used stencils, molding paste, sprays, inks and acrylic paint on my box.  Once I was happy with the results I added some flowers, gems, doily, butterfly, lace and ribbon. 

Here are some closer looks.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.   Pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team.

  13. This is really lovely, and I love the colours. I think you were very brave covering the original box though, as I rather like that too, and would have been terrified of messing it up, lol!
