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!

Christmas Canvas

This canvas was made for  our Christmas theme challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and our last challenge of 2019. 

I made this Christmas canvas using several designer papers from Stamperia, it is their Make a Wish Collection. 

To make my canvas I used a snowflake stencil and Ice Effect by Pentart on the paper I used for the base of my 12 by 12 canvas then layered pieces of other papers such as the tree and angel.  The houses were hand drawn on cardboard and layered with papers from the collection. The windows were cut with a die cut and the door was cut by hand.  The snow effect on the houses and tree is a Pentart product called snow paste. I added a twisted ribbon  in Christmas colours. I also used Pentart glitter pen, Nuvo Crystal Drops in white and clear and a  Merry Christmas die cut.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you will join us in this Christmas challenge. Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our creative design team. 

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  See you in 2020.
