About Me

Hi there!

My name is Angela, aka Ange and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I share my flat with my totally dependent, furry anxious little four legged friend Mojo. He's not too keen on men, probably why I'm still single! I love all things paper and have just discovered atc's.

I work in childcare and also teach kids scrap booking and card making.

My hope is to make and collect as many atc's as I can without running out of supplies. If you could see my craft room you would discover that this won't be a problem!

Ange :)

Likes

My favourite colour is bright red, closely followed by pink and olive green...these three colours make a great complementary colour scheme!. I like rich colours, especially Tim Holtz distress inks, glimmer mist, metal leaf.

Love everything Tim Holtz!

Old lace, doilies (paper and crotched), ribbons, buttons etc...

I'm crazy about owls and other birds, trees and pansies.

I love vintage style, shabby chic, as well as Art Deco, Art Nouveau and anything Asian.

My favourite artists are Gustav Klimt, Marc Chagall and Alphonse Mucha.

I love receiving original drawings and artwork, including collage.

Please message me if you would like to know more.

Dislikes

This is a list of stuff I prefer not to have on an atc.

*I would appreciate it if you don't send me anything smelly or use smelly mediums such as nail varnish, oil paint etc... on swaps, as I have a very sensitive nose and suffer from headaches caused by strong odours.

Blues/mauve/purple as the only colour scheme. A little bit is ok.

Neutral tones on their own i.e. an atc covered entirely in 10 shades of beige!

Pastels.

Fluoro.

Seaside/beach theme.

Religious themes.

Faeries, wizards, dragons, fantasy...

Halloween

Stickers, esp epoxy.
