I am an art-teacher (teach 59 children), I live in Belgium, my english is not that good but I will do my best. I try to paint 3 evenings a week (big paintings) but I draw every day. I have a lot of filled up little sketchbooks. I love to send en receive original things. Receiving something made from the heart is the best thing I can Imagine. Nothing makes me feel better than making feel good. So I read carefully your profile and put a lot of time to find the perfect swap for you.
-All kind of pencils( also old and used ones) -sharpies (we don't have them here)
-I am a collector of little plastique figures and second hand toys and rubber stamps. I started to carve my own stamps (and I love to receive a hand carved stamp by you)
-Birds, deers tapirs and bears
-Kitschy retro plastic stupid things for fun
-Animal shaped buttons or buttons with figures (no words)
-Note and 'sketchbooks'
-Plastic colorful jewelry (or something happy)
-a pen from your country
-Pictures, even those which are not well taken 'I mean mistakes
-Mark Ryden his art
-Y. Nara his art
Recently I discovered the Japanese Washi tape and I am fond of it!!!
I am searching for a chinese stamp like the one they put on the bottom in red on a painting or artwork
All the colors are my favorite, especially the bright ones. And retro orange and bright olive green, lime green.and mint
It would be nice to have a look at your workspace, so a picture of that is more than welcome
My favorite youth book is 'alleen op de wereld' Alone at the world but I read a lot, so there are many favorite books. I have a lot of illustration books and my own sketch book is always with me.
I like knit work and crocheting and embroidery made by others because I don't have the patience to learn it. Everything to do with paint and ink and old paper things are my favorites too. And I love illustrated envelopes. When I have a black pen or pencil I can be silent for days:-)
Maybe there is someone for a private swap... A handmade crochet/knIting/sew-item for a nice drawing (you can tell me what theme you like or send a picture of your animal and I will try to make an artwork for you). If you are interested please let me know. I would like to share something of my art-discipline for yours
I don't like 3Dhandmade cards and scrapbooking cards but I do like collage, drawings and paintings. Also not so fond of disney characters, hearts and the color gold
did not rate my effort
