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!

Altered Flower Container

It is time for another altered art/mixed media challenge at Altered Eclectics

I found this tin container in a free pile at a garage sale and decided to alter the tin and create a door hanger for my front door. 

My Altered Tin 

I sanded my container   and then painted it with gesso and added rice paper by Stamperia.  I loved this pretty garden pattern. I used crackle paint, stain on parts of the container to give the container an antique look. I also added jupe cord on the handle and and brown lace on the bottom of the tin. 

Using a stencil and stencil paste I added the word Beautiful  and then added a metal dragonfly. 

Here are some closer looks

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team.
