I love making things! Tiny things especially! Hand bound books, greeting cards, zines, matchbox shrines and fills, fridge magnets, etc. I collect paper of all kinds and especially love to make & swap scrappy paper packs. (My relaxation!) My style is funky and eclectic and quality production is important to me. When I get an extra minute I sell altered art scrap packs on ebay and also donate funky paper packs to my local artists recycling center (scrapaction.org ...it's the best!) i am a diversity trainer by day and i am trying to incorporate the arts more in my trainings. i love my work!
PAPER LIKES I love all kinds of quality paper, from new to vintage. I love Ephemera of all sorts! and I think I actually prefer old quality over new. I am African-American and any old photos or prints of Brown people (of all ethnicities) would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
In terms of colors I like, earth-tones are a favorite, as are jewel-tones, pastels are least preferred. 60's and 70's prints are nostalgic for me...those were the prints I grew up with & I must admit I have a soft spot in my heart for them! :-)
PAPER DISLIKES Cutsie or country-style prints. (Even though I do like Kawaii. Probably because I love tiny things so much!)
I love rubber stamps--mounted & unmounted alike.
NATURAL stuff a plus, although I do like vintage (1960's and previous) plastic.
I totally love "raw art" or "art brut"...stuff made by self-taught artists. When I grow up (or retire) this is what I want to be. :-) I really love stuff made from recycled materials.
I appreciate things that people make, especially when their heart shows up!
THANKS for swapping with me! xoxo!!
