¨ I live in wonderful Adelaide, South Australia, home to fantastic festivals and wonderful wines - where it takes 20-30 mins at the most to get anywhere. I am a mother to 3: 2 girls (17 & 10) & a boy (16)
For a quick visual overview of what I like, my pinterest boards are always up to date & accurate!
I do mixed media/scrapbooking, stamping, art journalling, collage, card making, wet-and-needle (dry) felting, some jewellery making. I love ATC's.
motifs/patterns/crafts influenced by Middle Eastern culture/Turkish/Indian/Nepalese...think Turkish/Islamic tiles (LOVE them), Indian motifs, paisley scripts religious iconography, esp non-Christian, eg Hindu gods mythologies from across the world/Joseph Campbell's work having lived in France, I love anything French...the more obscure the better....
I have always been interested in strong women figures in history/art history like:
Queen Elizabeth Ist anything Elizabethan/Henry's 8 wives Frida Kahlo Jeanne d'Arc/French History
I love anything Tim Holtz & Ranger branded things, stamps especially stampers anonymous, Stampotique, Chocolate Baroque, the Octopode Factory
butterflies peacocks native Australian flora and fauna pandas standard poodles (bigger is better!!...lol) seahorses
I love Schitt's Creek, Umbrella Academy, Lucifer
I love also British Comedy - Monty Python esp
I also like & collect:
Paper napkins for collage vintage photos, ephemera old manuscripts/musical scores old children's books from my mothers era - eg '40's
Colours - my absolute favourite is GREEN in any shade/hue
I love ombre / gradients I also love any reds, turquoise & aqua I love monochromatic schemes especially vintage whites & creams
nature colours - dusty red, olives, umbers, browns
vintage dusky pinks only - NOT lolly pink
I prefer Shimmer & shiny rather than glitter & bling eg Twinkling H2O's
I DO NOT like & please do NOT send me:
small pieces of patterned paper &/or cardstock- I have tons!!
Disney & other licensed stuff
Hello Kitty / Kawaii
and PLEASE no magazine cut-outs!!!! I think these are worse than stickers! I have been disappointed recently with some swaps where people have cut out pictures from either junkmail/catalogues or magazines and stuck them on, added a touch of coloured pencil & it's finished. I put a lot more work into my swaps and I expect the same. Thanks
