About Me

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!

Mixed Media Christmas Ornaments

Time for another great challenge at Altered Eclectics this month.  Altered Eclectics is a mixed media, altered art, upcycling, and recycling blog.  We do not accept paper crafts.  The theme is anything goes.

Since Christmas season is coming up to us quickly I decided to make altered Christmas ornaments.  The plastic balls were found either at a garage sale or in the dollar store.  The products that I used to decorate the balls were gesso, many different inks, crackle paint, gems, beads, and Prima Art stones. 

Closer look. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative month.  Altered Eclectics is taking January off so and I hope you will join us in February.   Remember to pop over to our blog to view the inspiring art work of our design team.
