IT IS ALL ABOUT PAPER HERE AND WHAT YOU PUT ON IT! SMALL SKETCHBOOKS and ATC's ARE MY PASSION.

SEED PACKET AND DRAGONFLY ATC
Two ATC's I made for my swap partners in AMCA. The dragonfly is stamped into hot UTEE and colored with Pearl EX...glitter was sprinkled in to make it even more blingy. I love this technique because it brings out all the detail in the rubber stamp. I ink the stamp in Versamark so it will release easy and give the powder something to bite onto.
Over the many years that I have been creating paper art, my clubs have increased. I began with CCCC crazy for cats card club in the summer of 2002. SBMAC sketchbook mail art club followed in the summer of 2004. I have been the moderator of that club for over five years now. I also belong to TWISTED SISTERS ATC CLUB. Once I began blogging for my little cat Miss Peach, a whole new world opened up as the world suddenly came into my living room. My group AMCA brings ATC's from around the world into my collection. ART brushes away the dust of everyday life for me...to quote a good rubber stamp!In my spare time, I live in a tiny cozy cottage in the desert of Washington with my beloved Dennis and a garden full of cats. I am from Bavaria and even though I am happy here, I miss it very much.
