My name is Helene. I am a nemophilist🌲 living on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of Canada. My little family has chickens, bunnies, and a year round food garden. We are avid campers and I truly cherish our time in the woods. When not camping, nature walking or gardening, I am most likely crafting ,making or building something and I am on social media a lot more than I should be. I take photos of everything.
My most favoured crafts include mixed media card making, gelli printing, assemblage, collage, and rubber stamping. I like layering with paints, papers, inks, pens, textured papers, and combining projects.
I like rich, deep, opulent colours and metallic;I use a lot of copper and gold tones in my art, but go through phases of working with one or two preferred colours at a time until I get bored with the combo and switch it up.
I am drawn to darker themes and images and am not into super cutesy/kawaii themes and I really don't like stickers.
I make and trade ATCs, ATCoins, Flipbooks, Skinnys, Twinchies, Inchies, collage cards, geli backgrounds, master cards, collaboration pieces, handcrafted postcards, handmade embellishments, handmade greeting cards and I am always interested in a craft challenge swap.
SOME IMAGES/THEMES I WOULD ENJOY:
skulls, bones, and anatomy
flora and fauna - leaves, trees, forest creatures
suns, moon, stars
bats, birds, butterflies, bugs, insects, and arachnids of all kinds, but especially the beetle and spider species
vintage, victorian, and gothic themes and images
mythical creatures, fairies, gnomes, magical beings......
elements and elemental correspondences
anything handmade by you
First Nation's and Inuit art and themes
themes from the ocean, the sky, and space
Please don't send me:
foam shapes or kid crafts
dollar store or kawaii stickers
cartoon characters, princess, Disney
Please do not send me stickers
Please don't send your current ephemera like yesterday's bus ticket, receipts, labels etc. It will likely just get recycled.
I am an advocate of the environment, equality, the right to women's reproductive health and the right to choose, and I am an ally of First Nation communities whose land I am grateful to live, work, and craft on. I love suns moons and stars
