Favorite Crafts

I've been painting abstracts and geometric art for many years with acrylics on canvas or wood. I recently started painting with watercolors and absolutely adore it! I am very fond of using metallic paints in either acrylic or watercolor.

Creating ATCs is a favorite of mine and I'm more inclined toward abstract and mixed media art and not cute characters, sentiments, or hearts & love. I create HD/HP, 3D mixed media, collage, embossed, or interactive ATCs mostly and spend a lot of time and energy on my creations and appreciate the same in return.

Paper-crafting is another favorite. I prefer modern & colorful to vintage. Each year I create my own holiday cards and send a homemade ornament or painting with each of the ~35 cards I send out.

Mosaics are another avenue of creative energy. I mosaic using tiles, beads, and stained glass on all kinds of substrates such as glass, wood, Styrofoam, or anything else that would make a strong base.

Deco books are super fun and I love seeing books and art from all over the world! I'm still waiting for one of my decos to come home...it can take years from creation to coming home.

I've quilted too. I made about 25 quilts and gave most of them away to family members and friends. I think I have 3 that I kept.

I've worked with clay and prefer polymer clay to pottery clay.

Art was always my favorite subject in school.

Just one more thing...

I will NEVER flake on a swap. Please message me or send an email if you haven't received something from me in a timely manner.

Thanks for swapping with me!
