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!

Back to School in Colour

The theme of the challenge this month over at Splashy Mix Challenges is "Back to School" this month. 

Here is the moodboard for this challenge.

No photo description available.

I painted my canvas with gesso and used a number stencil to added some random numbers with texture paste. Next I added some colours in acrylic paints,  stenciled some pink hearts and some stamped some swirls. 

The image I used on my project is a digital image from The Paper Shelter. I coloured her with Copics. I thought it was perfect for this themed project. I went through my stash of paper for colours that I could use on the background papers, tags etc. I played with the layers until I found a look that I liked. I also added some wooden letters, school bus, sentiments and a brad. 

Here are some closer looks
