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!

Art Journal Page

Time for another monthly challenge over at Creative Artiste.  The challenge is always anything mixed media goes and must contain 3 different mixed media projects. Your entry in this challenge can be anything mixed media ATC, Cards, Tags, Layouts, altered art or off-the-page project. To find all the rules for blog see our blog.

For this month I have created a art journal page using a couple of stencils, acrylic paint, pens, rubber stamps, inks and papers. 

After I primes my pages for the project I added some interesting designer paper to the pages then started to stencil my design adding colour and pattern. I also added some old seem binding tape for some more interest. 

It was fun creating my pages.  Thank you for stopping by.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team.
Have a creative week.
