296  Re: Surpise Halloween ATC swap 2012 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by MissingWillow on: September 29, 2012 07:36:58 AM
I had such anxiety over this swap because I've never made or received an ATC before.  Now I think I'm hooked.   Smiley  Here is the card I received form wittmert, she used paint, colored pencil, collage, glitter and french knots.  How clever!

And from jillybeans the most awesome demon lady!  Mwahahahaha

Both sent me ATC backgrounds to play with.  Thank you so much, ladies, I love them!

Here is my beauty from teag!  She was able to include so many textures.  She incorporated my love of horror movies (The Birds) and zombies (the eyeball).  The raven is just perfect!  My poly clay feet arrived intact, thank you so much for those.  This is a swap I do every year, my spooky street is growing... Thank you so much, teag!

I received from SunnyDawn today, check out my awesome vampire!  I really love the drops of blood, did you use tinted glue for that?  I need to steal that idea!  Thanks so much, Dawn!  It's starting to look like Halloween at my house.   Cheesy

Your mixed media pieces are stunning, when did you start using those techniques?

Thank you! It's only been around 5 years that I've been working with so much texture. A friend of mine inspired me by using drywall compound in her paintings to create texture and I absolutely loved it. I really REALLY love texture. I'm very tactile and I have to touch everything. I guess it was a fairly natural transition! Since then, I've incorporated all sorts of goodies to create the look I want. I want people to 'reach out and touch' my art...not just look at it!

What medium to you most like to work with?

My favourite medium. That's a toughie. Um, well in terms of paintings and wall art, I love to work on canvas so, acrylics, watercolour pencils, paint pens, spray paint, pastels, fabric 'puffy' paint...and whatever else I can get my hands on! I am also madly in love with papier mache . I love its versatility. You really can create just about anything with it! Soooo....I guess in short, there isn't  just one medium. I really do love it all!

Tell us what inspires you

Another toughie. I'm so easily inspired. It could be anything at all. But my favourite subject (and it's been this way since I was a little girl doing my fashion drawings) is women. I've always loved to draw and paint women because you can have so much fun with them. You can just go wild with the hair, faces, clothing and colours. I love goddesses, too. I love art that sends positive messages. I like to be 'lifted' by art. I want it to make me feel good.

Do you have any formal art training?

No. No formal art training. I took art all throughout high school, of course, but for post-secondary, I went to film school. I lament that often. Going back to school for fine arts is something I often consider.

Any tips for aspiring artists?

Well when I started to really take painting seriously, my confidence was somewhat lacking. I would get frustrated when I couldn't achieve the look I wanted. But I taught myself that, no matter what, keep on truckin' because it will turn out in the end. And it always did. Always. I really learned to believe in myself throughout this whole process. So, in short, trust in your abilities and your vision. Don't give up. Sometimes the most beautiful creations come from happy mistakes!

What is your favourite piece of your own artwork?

My favourite piece of art that I've created...well, I've done some custom pieces that I absolutely adore. And I love that the recipients loved them as well. Two of my favourites are these ones:



On what other Craftster boards can we find items that you've posted?

Knitting, crochet, polymer clay, ATC, home sweet home, cooking, clothing, toys dolls and playthings, Purses bags and wallets, quilts, occasion and holidays

Here are a few different things I've done:

Polymer clay works:


Fondant cake:


Interior Decorating:


Toys, dolls and playthings:






What is one of your favourite items on Craftster posted by someone else?

Oh boy! That's a can of worms! I am constantly inspired and blown away on this site. It's so hard to narrow it down, but I will if I must!

I ADORE Phizzychick's work. I've loved this piece from the moment I laid eyes on it!


There's also this amazing fairy that I am fortunate enough to own thanks to an organized swap on this awesome site. Bobbiemay has seriously mad skills and I'm so proud to own this!


There's so much more that amazes me here. So much talent that I don't know where to begin. I wish I could include everyone's pieces that I love, but alas, there's just not enough room!
