About Me

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!

Just Because

For this month's project over at Altered Eclectics I created this small canvas using a couple of old sewing patterns. 

My background is sewing pattern paper and some dictionary paper which I coloured with corduroy coloured Distress Inks and added faux stitches. I added a sentiment that I saw on a dress store window one day on holidays.

To add detail to my canvas  I added jute, Crushed Grape Nuvo, a metal computer piece I used for the belt, pearls, lace and a sequins.   

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