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!

Autumn Leaves

It is October 1st and time for another challenge at Eclectic Ellapu and the theme of the challenge is " Autumn". 

I purchased some of Seth Apter's new Baked Texture and decided to use it on my autumn theme card. My large leaves are bunched leaves that I first coloured with distressed inks and stamped them with a sentiment stamp.  Once my inks had dried I used several layers of Baked Texture in the colours of altered page and chunky rust.  

The background paper is coloured with distress inks and stamped with a word stamp. The sentiment on my tag is a stamp from my collection of unmounted stamps  and the maker of this stamp has slipped my mind.   The stamp's sentiment is by John Muir, "The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and ..... "

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Hope you will join our autumn theme challenge this month.
