About Me

I am a mixed media artist near Washington D.C. I share my art on my Instagram accounts (links above). I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I have many interests, but am here for swapping. I like to send quality items and works. I mainly join ATC, mixed media, fb/deco, penpal, and greeting card type swaps.

Hobbies

So, some of my hobbies are martial arts, volleyball, watching youtube crafting/arting videos. I love to look through Pinterest for ideas, and new takes on art/mixed media.

I mainly do mixed media on my ATCs. I love stamped images, stencils, different papers to gelli print on, I LOVE LOVE LOVE gelli printing....if you have not gotten one... DO - you will not regret it!!!

I don't rate off of the extras, so don't fell like you need to send anything other than what the swap calls for. BUT...if you like to send things, like me, I enjoy just a few things.

I like getting thin papers to collage. It can be decorative tissue paper...literally one napkin;), used stamps, papers that have black and white text, old book pages, etc. I love old grocery lists, your kids scrap paper from math or rough drafts...etc. A page of you writing on it however you want, it can be the word love over and over, or whatever.

I love homemade background papers. If you have a gelli plate, you know what to do lol. If you don't have one and don't know what I am talking about...it's really just any paper, like copy paper, somewhat thin, and you just paint, make marks, stamp images or words, then add more paint, you can stencil or whatever you want to do. Don't worry about it looking finished or nice... all these papers will be torn and glued down, then painted and drawn on by me in one of my art journals.

OH, and I enjoy washi samples too....the non slick kind with simple patterns.

AND I love all colors... I actually get a bit bummed sometimes when painting because there are not more colors!! LOL!

ALSO, I love mail art!! The less whitespace, the better!

LASTLY, just so you know, I am usually always generous with my rating so don't feel obligated to do any of this.

Stuff I dislike...

I would rather not get cosmetics, candies, or other non craft related things...UNLESS it is unique to your country (not US).

I don't particularly like regular ATC size decorative paper, unless it is handmade by you of course;)

MAINLY, I just like nicely put together swaps that fit the requirements...lol! I don't rate down for swaps that I think are ugly or don't agree with.
