I enjoy doing ATCs, sketching, painting, scrapbooking, altered items, etc. I find art to be extremely relaxing, and I am looking to improve my skill set and broaden my style. Lately I have been experimenting with texture and background techniques. I just got brave enough to experiment with beeswax and am loving it. Next I want to tackle working with thin sheets of metal (copper, etc.) to try embossing and such.
I have done a few ATC swaps thus far, and I enjoy how it sparks my creativity. Ironically, I tend to only do the stuff I want to keep when it's destiny is to be mailed off for a swap, lol. It seriously annoys me when I mail something off I've spent lots of time on only to get nothing in return. However, when the swap is handled correctly, it is SO cool to get some beautiful creative work made by an unknown person.
Harry Potter series, the Twilight series, Anita Blake series by Laurel K Hamilton, Susan Elizabeth Phillips books, etc., etc.
Transparencies (plain or with text/print), rubber stamps and stamp pads, Post Cards, stickers, Note cards, Pens, Markers, Interesting findings (metal, etc.) for collage, instruction books for art technique, alcohol inks, paper, embellishments, Glue dots, Glitter (all colors), Glitter glue, craft paper, seed beads, etc.
I would like some memory glass (can't seem to find any around here) and some thin sheets of metal (copper, etc.) to play around with embossing and heating, etc.
I love Fabreeze Noticeables air fresheners. LOL, I know that's a silly thing to have on a wish list but I love the way they make the house smell and I always seem to be dropping money on them. :)
Fairies, Pin-Up Icons, Fairy Tales, Mythology, Tall Tales, Urban Legends, Dragons, Harry Potter, the Twilight books and characters.
I love crimson red, deep dark purple, and of course pink. :) I love interesting textures and aged/distressed backgrounds. I love interactive, 3-D, or dimensional art. I love femininity and girly things like shoes, make-up, clothes, and shopping. I love to burn candles of all scents except pine (smells yucky to me).
