INTERNATIONAL PARTNERS I love getting foreign mailing/stationery envelopes, not the fancy kind, just your everyday ordinary envelope and if you throw in an extra postage stamp (can be used or new) from your country that would make a great goody for me:) THANKS:)***
Married, two furry children of the feline persuasion:) I love to travel, US and Europe (still need to visit Australia), enjoy time at the ocean or in a forest. Not a very good gardener but I love poppies and snapdragons, although of late, impatients have been my flower box choice due to their nearly indestructable constitution:)
Mixed Media, handdrawn art, Art journaling (Sabrina Ward Harrison, Teesha Moore, Danny Gregory), ATCs and anything I can make by hand.
I just recently obtained a 1" button machine...too much fun and MOO cards...love to trade MOO cards. Do you MOO?
I love doing handdrawn art with Sakura Pigma Micron pens (#02,#03,#05) and then using watercolor to add color to the drawings.
Things that have caught my eye recently:
--Any PATTERNED paper (security envelopes, scrapbooking papers, any color combinations, any size - can be scraps or narrow strips of paper you would normally just throw away - for my recycling art projects:)
--Anything hand-drawn or painted
--Color: Olive Green
--Other Things: Round or egg shaped rocks, Odd shaped paperclips (just found some that were word bubbles-like in cartoon strips:), Small stuffies, mini-zines (the ones made from one sheet of paper)
--VINTAGE: Snapshot photos (not the fancy studio-posed ones) just snapshots of people in the past, ESPECIALLY those posing with their pets, Record journals/record keeping books (blank or with writing on the pages), old receipts, cancellation marks, postal marks (like return to sender, first class mail, etc)
--Tea bag tags (not the bag of tea, just the tag with the string attached)
--Religious Items: Catholic prayer cards, rosaries (can be broken or in pieces), saint medallions, prayer books (or pages from), madonna pictures (NOT the singer please:), photocopies of Bible page that has the verse from John 3:16 (New Testament) on it (please don't rip the page out of a perfectly good Bible)
--Letterform lowercase "g"
--The number "3"
--Monkey (especially Fez Monkeys)
--Hand-drawn or hand-painted artwork
--Fabric, embroidered, stitched
--Rubberstamped (love to see what others have)
--Collaged (NOTE: if you use a magazine picture please, please, please don't use it as it was printed, alter it somehow (sandpaper, wash of color, rubberstamp over it, drawn on top) just don't leave it in it's original form, that's plagiarism. I love to see your own artwork:)
--Sabrina Ward Harrison
--Chris Van Allsburg
* Aerosmith* (finally discovered their music -- yes, I lived a cloistered life when I was a teenager -- and went to my FIRST concert July 5, 2012 with my niece:) Steven Tyler is a joy to watch his antics on stage. He's so full of life and brings a smile to my face:) * The Big Bang Theory* (went so far as to purchase all the DVDs and have been watching non stop:)
