Name: Sheledriia ( Shel-ley-dree-a)
Drawing: I draw on sketch or computer paper. I like to make ATCs. I've recently picked up doing ZIAs. I use gel pens, dips pens, mechanical pencils, Sharpies, and Micron pens.
Painting: Water color or acrylic. I paint on canvas or wood. I enjoy decorating small boxes this way. I also paint Warhammer 40K minitures.
Carving: I carve both wood and stone. I tend to work with either basswood or soapstone, though I often have a hard time finding soapstone blanks.
Needlepoint: I often make counted or printed cross-stitch samplers when I need to relax. I've made several patterns myself from scratch when a friend has wanted something specific that I was unable to find a pattern for.
Papercrafts: I do quite a lot of Origami. I know about 50 models off the top of my head. I want to expand that to at least 1000 models eventually. I love paper of any type. I also make boxes and have basic book binding skills. One of my favourite projects was a tiny book I made by binding together several origami books. Each origami book was 10 pages and I bound 5 of them together with cloth covered book board covers for a 50 page book that could fit in a match box.
