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!

Anything Festive Challenge

This is the last challenge of the year at Eclectic Ellapu for 2018. The theme is anything Festive.  Instead of a card I chose to make a altered tin pocket  hanger. 

I used digital images for the Santa and the clock are by Arty Pants which I coloured with Distress Inks. I also used glitter paint, origami snowflakes, ribbon,  and sentiment dies. I purchased the tin pocket hangers at a garage sale several years ago on holidays.

This is our last challenge for 2108 and we will be back in February .  Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Creative New Years. 
Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by the projects of our design team.
