=========================

Favorite Crafts

I've been painting abstracts and geometric art for many years with acrylics on canvas or wood. I recently started painting with watercolors and absolutely adore it! I am very fond of using metallic paints in either acrylic or watercolor.

Creating ATCs is a favorite of mine and I'm more inclined toward abstract and mixed media art and not cute characters, sentiments, or hearts & love. I create HD/HP, 3D mixed media, collage, embossed, or interactive ATCs mostly and spend a lot of time and energy on my creations and appreciate the same in return.

Paper-crafting is another favorite. I prefer modern & colorful to vintage. Each year I create my own holiday cards and send a homemade ornament or painting with each of the ~35 cards I send out.

Mosaics are another avenue of creative energy. I mosaic using tiles, beads, and stained glass on all kinds of substrates such as glass, wood, Styrofoam, or anything else that would make a strong base.

I've quilted too. I made about 25 quilts and gave most of them away to family members and friends. I think I have 3 that I kept.

I've worked with clay and prefer polymer clay to pottery clay.

Art was always my favorite subject in school.

Just one more thing...

I will NEVER flake on a swap. Please message me or send an email if you haven't received something from me in a timely manner.

Thanks for swapping with me!
