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!

Steam Punk Altered Box

This is my project for May's Altered Eclectics, an Altered Art/Mixed Media Challenge Blog. 

This is the box I started with.

I fell in love along time ago with the stamp art of Chris Stern of CS Designs and have this digital stamp in my collection for many years.  This round box seemed to be the perfect place to use it. 

I coloured the image with Copics and pencil crayons. I used several metal findings as assect on the top of the box.  I used acrylic paint to paint the edge of the box and and lid.  I also used a celestial design stencil on the side of the box. To complete the altered box I added a couple of gears and a clock with wings.
