Hello from Angie

Hello, I'm Angie.

Generate your own library card


I like playing with collage, mixed media, hand carving rubber stamps, buying rubber stamps, owning more paper than I can ever use, playing with my gelli plates, Sizzix die cutting machine and yeah, I like all that stuff and more.

ATC with hand carved stamp of my Pekingese Daisy Hand carved stamp of my Corgi

I love that mailart has exposed me to many different styles, many different artists, many different perspectives.

I like exchanging naked handmade postcards and I usually do 5 x 7 inches in size. I find that size offers enough space to experiment while still being affordable to mail to someone. I like the postcards naked so the address, postage stamps and other postal markings are part of the piece.

I also make a lot of ATCs. I meet with a local group to exchange ATCs monthly.




I like ...

  • Dogs (I have a Pembroke Corgi and 2 Pekingese)
  • Clowns
  • Zebras
  • Favorite color - orange
  • ATCs made by YOU (I love them)
  • Ephemera

* Life Aquatic with Steve zissou - all of it but especially Claus, the submarine thingy, the ship profile, Eleanor
* Star Trek - DS9 (Kira, Captain Sisko), NG - Enterprise D
* Survivor - Tikis, immunity necklaces and Jeff Probst
* Jason Bourne - Matt Damon as Bourne
* Firefly - Mel, Inara, Jayne, the ship, all of it
* Princes Bride - the movie
* Vanity Faire with Reese Witherspoon
* Spaced - British Television series * Dawn of the Dead (2004), Shaun of the Dead, World War Z, Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead, 28 Days later, 28 weeks later, and most things zombies
* Joseph Cornell assemblages --
* Paul Klee -
* Thylacine or Tasmanian Tiger
* Scion xB - 2nd generation, my car is black
* Bjork - Favorite song is Dull flame of desire that she sings with Anohni Hegarty.
* I enjoy getting hand made pieces. I will love anything you make yourself.

If you look at my Flickr photos or my Flickr favorites you'll get an idea of my eclectic tastes. I'm not easily offended but please don't try (to offend me). I just mean that I'm pretty open minded.

Thank you for a great card and for hosting the swap, Angie. PS: your rooster stamp is way better than the USPS version!

Comment: Thanks for the great package of papers, Angie! I'm going to rip them all up and glue them into my sketch book tonight, I like having a bunch of randomly collaged pages ready for playing with whenever the urge comes. That braille paper though... You're my only source for that!

bbsporty rated for EJ: Security envelope destash on Feb 21, 2017
Comment: Angie, thank you so much for all of the great security envelope papers! I love all of them and there are some that I haven't ever seen before. A special thanks for the zebra atc! I'm so happy to get him! I wish I could give you more hearts!
Watsonc7 rated for CC: Image transfer technique USA on Feb 17, 2017
Comment: Awww Angie, I actually really like your postcard!! It's like a llama ghost, so awesome that you sent me a llama! The collage is awesome too, seriously. I had a pretty hard time with finding a good technique too but I ended up printing on wax paper and rubbing it onto my postcard...I had to carefully seal it and hope it didn't run. I hope you do actually host it again lol, we will all have an understanding of how tricky it is and that something freakish might come out of our attempts...sweet!
Response: Thank you for the kind rating. I've tried this technique so many times and watched videos and read instructionals - it's just not my thing I guess. LOL. Yours (on flickr) turned out great!
