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!

Altered Wine Box

This is what I started with.

For my project this month at Altered Eclectics was to make an altered  box to hold my paint brushes.  This is the old wooden wine holder I used for this project. 

After I sanded the box I painted it with gesso. I added some gears and metal pieces, the words brushes then painted the entire box with shades of copper.  I next added an antiquing solution to give the project a patina.
