Me & Art

Hi! Nice to meet you! I'm a 20ish year old women. I'm a child at heart and an old soul, that's what people tell me. I like to mess around and act silly but I also like to be serious and direct when appropriate.

✏️It couldn't be MY profile without a bit dedicated to art 🎨

  • Right now Im loving watercolours I'm waiting to get my hands on some daniel smith paints! Right now I use the Sakura koi set.

-If anyone has any paperblanks micro format journals that you don't use PLEASE send THEM TO ME!!! pleasseeee. They're discontinued now and I absolutely adore them for traveling because any size bigger I will get intomidated to fill. And they covers are beautiful.

  • I liked using acrylic paints, haven't since I finished school though I love cute portable paint brushes (for watercolor or acrylic)

  • I've been scrapbooking quite sporadically for the past 6 years. Rarely because I'm a little picky. I'm trying to get into junk journaling, regular journaling just doesn't have enough visual interest to me..so any scrapbooking/journaling ephemera would come in handy 😁.

  • I've started using alcohol and water based markers.

  • I've been journaling practically my whole life.

  • I Love my micron fine liners.

-is really like to try acrylic markers! I think I'd like them but right now I'm trying to save up. So if you've got an extra one around there 🙋🏻.

  • I've got several sketchbooks but even more journals! I'll probably end up with more but I've been good lately. Each of my journal books have a purpose though. My favorite is a "junk journal" I got as a gift from a swap.

-I also spend way too much time watching artists on YouTube.

-I really like nail art, it's like 10 tiny little canvases, I haven't done any lately though because I get gel nails done. I have eczema and the plastic tips really help to not hurt my skin when I scratch.

Basically anything visual and creative is an outlet for me. Really at this point it's a passion, hobby and basically a necessity. It's hard to go a day without doing anything creative. I often end up doodling on my homework. The couple of years I've also been really into "fashion" I like trying new things and being just a little outside the box on the days I feel like it. But usually keeping a cute, elegant and or fun style. Im currently trying to change up my style to something more casual and slightly grungy, I just don't feel the cute dresses look that nice on my anymore.

I'm so excited to be part of this community, I love letters and hand made things and I like making just as much as I like receiving packages. Being on swapbot a little while, I've discovered that I'm actually a little picky. It takes visible time and effort for me to really get happy with a package or letter. But when you succeed in making me really happy I'll be sure to send you a thank you letter, maybe with a little surprise too.

Me Facts

  • I'm the eldest from 4 kids

  • My parents are from chili and el salvador.

  • I was born in British Columbia

  • I speak English, French and Spanish fluently

  • I'd like to learn Italian and German

  • I love learning and I like school.

  • Currently a Cegep student

-we have a adorable miniature poodle and we had a Westie

-When I was little I wanted to be a private detective

-For now, Im working towards being an architect.

What I like

🖋Theme ideas: ❤️Codes/mystery!!! ❤️ vintage vibes❤️ a package for "royalty" ❤️ Architecture❤️ European ❤️ Miyazaki (studio ghibli) ❤️ Sailor moon❤️ just in case you really Can't decide/think of a theme 😉!

🖊Tea!!! Sweet teas are my favourite but I've liked all the teas I've tried so far (chamomile, green tea, black tea, mango tea, ginger-lemon etc..)

🖊Craft supplies ❤️ Lace, pens, watercolours, travel paint brushes, embelishments and nice paper. My faves are any that have a vintage vibe to them. Or just different/intricate. As I mentioned above, I'm trying to build on my collection of ephemera and journaling details.

🖋Washitape: I love the beige, vintage tooling washitape, my favorite washitape is a beige one with different rock types and their names. I like science themed washi and washi with writing on it.

🖊Postcards Anything clean and crisp, with rich colours. Ideally sceneries. Landscapes and architecture places. I also like inspiring art ones, watercolor or other.I'm building a collection of postcards for my wall. I love reading what's written on them. I prefer them stamped and written on. So pour your heart out!
(Although I like postcards, id prefer some nice notecards). For Disney postcards, i only really like the ones that are the process of making the movies. The artwork behind the finished result, not really a fan of just screenshots from the movies.

🖊If you put time into what you send me, I'll probably love it! It's all in the details.

🖊 Snacks: I like sweets but also salty things. So candy and chocolate but also chips and nuts. My favorite chocolate is black chocolate mixed with something. I love mint tasting foods. And I can eat spicy foods. Im trying to try out some yummy healthier snacks too! I'm allergic to walnuts, not terribly but it'll make my mouth itch.

🖋Letters:Preferably hand written. So this is just a random request that maybe someone will feel like doing. Could you write a letter like one from pride and prejudice, 19th century, formal, fancy, in handwriting with a wax seal only if you feel like it and have time of course😊.

🖋Journals: I really LOVE journals, small side or regular book size, so not too big. I have a collection of around 15 that I've accumulated over the years. They all have something written in them. Although not all of them are full. Currently I have a dream journal, letters I might never send journal and my regular journal plus a couple books for writing ideas or poems or stories. I recently bought a dotted journal from Micheals, but I've told myself i need to finish one journal before starting that one. I don't usually get plain paper unless it's for my Mini travel journals or a sketchbook. For sketchbooks, I'd need a paper that can withstand watercolor. My favorite sketchbook is the artist loft black cover smaller sketchbook, it works very well and it's less than 10$!

🖋Notecards:I'd prefer a notecard over a postcard. cause I'm running out! Anything, I think. Ideally not animals though...basically anything that goes with the general stuff I like that I mention ⬆️. I need

Dislikes
