Creative Artiste is a monthly challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. So, as long as you like to use various mediums on your creations, we'd love to see you enter the challenge.

Welcome back to another month's challenge at Creative Artiste - we look forward to seeing what lovely Mixed Media projects you've created this month.  I'm sharing some ATC's on the theme of Spring that were the project for a swap on my own facebook group The Joy of Sets.  We love to swap cards and challenges each month so if you'd like to join in with us come and find us.

I created the backgrounds first with some stencilling, stamping and some texture paste.  This was then overlaid with some papers and flowers from Tapology and some vintage papers from an old book.  I added some cut out butterflies and found some little charms in my stash.  I finished off with some lace and some faux stitching around the edges. 

Here's my April page for my ongoing calendar for 2025. The background was part of a paper from Stampington Magazine - the words April and the quote is from Country living magazine and the stamps are from Tracy Evans. 

I'm adding the ATC's into the following
