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!

Professor Owl


Time for another great challenge at Through the Craft Room Door, as always it is an anything Goes Challenge.

Our generous Sponsor this week is ……….

Ike’s Art

The prize this week is …….. $10 voucher for the store

I used one of Ike's images called Professor Owl. 

What a handsome owl he is. 

I colored the image using Primacolor Pencil Crayons and Mineral Oil.  The Designer paper by ShokART  was used for the background along with an altered wooden butterfly, so rubber stamps and gears.   I used Nuvo  Crystal Glace on the owls eyes and pocket watch.  This was a fun card to make.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week. Remember to pop over to Through the Craft Room Door's challenge Blog to be inspired by our talented design team. 

Hope you will join us this week.
