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!

Creative Artiste November 2023 Challenge - Anything Goes Mixed Media

We have another great challenge happening over at Creative Artiste, as always the Challenge is anything goes mixed media. 

The term “mixed media art” is a broad definition that covers many forms of arts and crafts, including collage, assemblage, altered objects, handmade greeting cards, artist trading cards (ATCs) tags and art journaling  as long as you use different mediums.

The “mixed media” used includes paint, paper, pastes, sprays, powders, textural elements, clay, resins, fabrics, found objects, photos, metal, inks, pencils, markers and pastels to name just a few.

This is my November project, a page for my Art Journal. 

I used a few different products for my page including, distressed inks, rubber stamps, tea dyed lace, a stencil and scraps from my stash, rice papers and antique/vintage papers from my collection. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a creative month. 

Pop over to our challenge blog to view the creations for our fabulous design team.
