- 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!

I made several different backgrounds with the technique, some which I may use in a frame. You never know how they will turn out and it is fun to doodle on them.

Several brands of Alcohol Inks from my stash
An assortment of glass jars and shot glasses
An assortment of Sharpies and Posca Pens for Doodling
New Years Die Cut

This is my canvas I created for this challenge.
The image I used for this challenge is from an old Christmas card.
For the background I added scrap of blue and white scrap designer paper from my stash to the canvas. I wanted an aged look the the project so I tea dyed my flowers and a chiffon table napkin with starts on it. The napkin started out being white chiffon with silver stars. I ended up using the reverse of the napkin because the stars did not take to the tea dying but the stars on the reverse of the napkin did take the colour so I used the reverse for my project.
Some closer looks
I framed the angel image , added gems, flowers (some that I tea dyed), blue ribbon, and some old Christmas decorations. It was a fun canvas to do for this upcoming holiday season.

I have a lot of paint pour canvas from when I was practicing paint pouring and thought I would be fun to use one for my project this week. Paint pouring is fun but I am very slow on mastering the process.
Here are some closer looks to the canvas.
I added a Tim Holtz sentiment to the canvas.
Join us this month for another lovely challenge.
