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!

Steampunk Man

Time for another great challenge over at Creative Artiste this month.  Our theme is always

"Anything Mixed Media Goes"

Please make sure you use multiple mediums on your  projects.

For this months project I decided to make this Steampunk Man.  I was inspired by a project made in a class I took from my friend Mindy from Pip Art 

My Steampunk man is a rubber stamp by Sheena. The Frame of the picture is 2 square frames, one used in reverse.  I  added a steampunk hat to my man that I drew.  The background paper on the bottom frame is from Stamperia, I also used cord to give the frame more texture. 

Other views of the project

Other products I used for the project are: 

Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Embossing Folder

Rice Paper by Stamperia

Pentart Patina Effects

Pentart Rust Effect

Golden Molding Paste

Gear dies, 


Metal Findings

Hot Air Balloon and other textures by 7 Gypsies

Copic Markers (for colouring the steampunk man)
