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!

Anything but a Card Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

It is an Anything but a Card Challenge this week at Craft Cardmakers
A friend gave me this blue bottle. I loved the design on the bottle and I decided to do an altered bottle for my project. 

 This is the bottle I started with. 

Closer look

I painted my bottle with Gesso and chalk paint, next I used Distressed Ink on the painted areas to add some depth.  I wrapped the bottle with some gold twine and lace and then added this gorgeous vintage bird, nest and eggs image from Graphic Fairy 

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