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!

613 Avenue Create - August Anything Goes 2022

Time for another great challenge over at 613 Avenue Create this month.  The theme of this challenge is anything goes.

Our sponsor this month is Mirtillamente Digital Stamps and Paper.

Our Prize this month is ........

I decided to do a mixed media project for this challenge using out sponsor's image called So'getta Window.   When I look at the digital stamp I thought she looked like she was looking out the window on a hot summer night.  

To create my picture I used  a brick stencil with Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste to create the background which I coloured with several shades of PanPastels.  I liked how the PanPastels  got into the crevasses of the faux bricks to make them appear for real.  I coloured the image with copics, and several colours of gel pens.  The sentiment was created on the computer and I added some die cut leaves.  I edged the leaves and image with walnut stained distressed ink. 

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative week.  Remember to pop over to our challenge blog to be inspired by our talented design team.  Hope you will join us this month.  
I am entering my project in the following Challenges
