HELLO! 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 on our urban lot. We are avid campers and I love our time in the woods. When not camping, nature walking or gardening, I am most likely crafting , making or building something. I take photos of everything.
My most favoured crafts include mixed media, gelli printing, assemblage, and collage. I also love stamping. I like layering so some of my swaps can take days to make as I let each layer of paint or ink dry.
Swaps I am looking for are mostly handmade paper swaps and paper and craft supply swaps.
I make and trade ATCs, ATCoins, Flipbooks, Skinnys, Twinchies, Inchies, collage cards, geli backgrounds, master cards, collaboration pieces, handmade embellishments, handmade greeting cards and I am always interested in a craft challenge swap.
I like rich, deep, opulant colours...all colours except pink unless it is minimal. I love metallics and 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. I do not like divisive themes like religion and I dont want to hear about it unless it is earth/nature/goddess based. I am however interested in Hallowe'en and witchy themes.
I really don't like stickers. Keep em away.
SOME IMAGES/THEMES I WOULD ENJOY:
skulls, bones, and anatomy
flora and fauna - leaves, trees, forest creatures
suns, moon, stars
bats, birds, butterflies, bugs
vintage, victorian, and gothic themes
mythical creatures, mythical animals, fairies, gnomes, magical beings......
elements and elemental correspondences
anything handmade by you
First Nation's art and themes (locally we have Coast Salish art which is incredible)
themes from the ocean, the sky, and space
foam shapes or kid crafts
dollar store or kid stickers
I really REALLY don't want stickers
No religious or holiday stuff please, unless I have specifically joined a swap for it
cartoon characters, princess, disney
Please do not send me stickers
I am not interested in your current ephemera like yesterday's bus ticket, receipts, labels etc. It will likely just get recycled. Truly vintage or Tim Holtz style only please.
I am an advocate of the environment, equality, the right to women's reproductive health and the right to choice, and I am an ally of our First Nation communities whose land I am grateful to live, work, and craft on.
