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!

Peggy's Cove

Time for another "anything mixed media" challenge at Creative Artiste this month.  

The term “mixed media art” is a broad definition that covers many forms of arts and crafts, including collage, assemblage, altered objects, handmade greeting cards, artist trading cards (ATCs) tags and art journaling  as long as you use different mediums.
The “mixed media” used includes paint, paper, pastes, sprays, powders, textural elements, clay, resins, fabrics, found objects, photos, metal, inks, pencils, markers and pastels to name just a few.

Our sponsor this month is Scrapmatts  Papertole Australia

Scrapmatts has a large selection of chipboard projects, stencils, papertole projects etc.

For this month project I made a mixed media canvas for one of my favourite places we visited during this years summer holidays, Peggy's Cove,  Nova Scotia. 

Peggy's cove is a beautiful fishing village with colourful  historical old homes, lobster traps and the iconic lighthouse.  I loved the pictures that I took that day and had a hard time choosing ones for my project. 

I used our sponsor's Chipboard String Circles on my project.  I also used acrylic paints, inks,  molding paste, Posca pens,finding such as button, lobster, starfish,  and pearls.
