2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / circus side show mixed media ATC on: September 01, 2013 12:15:19 PM

this is my interpretation of 'circus side show', made a couple of years ago.
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / her kind on: August 29, 2013 09:10:15 AM

this is a 12x12 mixed media piece featuring a line from anne sexton's poetry. the background is layers of paper (scrapbook, old book pages etc), acrylic paint, rubber stamps, stencils, spray paint. i have also used gel pens, paint pens, heat embossing, and charcoal to alter the image and make it my own. it reads:

a woman like that is not afraid* to die, i have been her kind.

i am big on texture, both visual and tactile, and this has both.

feedback welcome, thanks for looking!

*the original poem by sexton used "ashamed" instead of "afraid", but essentially the same/similar meaning.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / what i can't do, you can do better.... on: July 17, 2012 03:22:16 PM
have there ever been swaps where the goal is to get items that you can't craft for yourself? for example, as a mixed media person i may be matched up with someone who sews, but isn't so keen on making wall art. does that make sense?
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / 4x4 mixed media collage on: July 16, 2012 11:23:42 AM
it's been quite some time since i have made art, a year or so. i am a bit rusty, but still so pleased with how this came out!

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / more art/less craft swaps? on: July 16, 2012 09:16:16 AM
do those ever happen? i see a lot of crafty swaps, but the only arty ones i have found are for atc's/chunky pages. are swaps ever done for larger pieces? thanks so much, and apologies in advance if this is an old topic or posted in the wrong spot etc.
