About Me

My photo
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!

Study To You Are Nutty

613 Avenue Create has another Anything Goes Challenge this month and the optional twist is School Days

I used this image from The Paper Shelter called Back to School to create my canvas. 

 My canvas was painted with two blue acrylic paints then the dots were created with a stencil and white acrylic paint. 

The back to school image, bus and pencils were coloured with Copic markers. 
The number stamp is an old Ranger stamp/Dylusions from my stash. 
I added wooden letter, sentiments,and paper layers were added to complete the Back to School collage. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to stop by 613 Avenue Create to be inspired by our creative design team.  Hope you join us this month.
