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!

Heart Full of love

I had fun this week creating this simple wooden heart mixed media wall hanging for Creative Artiste.  For the base of  my heart I used a combinations of crackling paste, a selection of acrylic paints and a stencils. 

Our sponsor this week is Tando Creative


The pearl frame around the heart was done with white Nuvo Crystal drops.  I just broke down and bought several colours and they  are all fun to use. 

The glitter "Love" is a Tim Holtz die cut letters.  To complete the wall hanging I added a lace white butterfly which I added some colour to.
