Ever since I was a little girl I have always enjoyed art.  Even so, since I am an artist, quirky, and a bit overly emotional…I forget about the joy I have in creating it!  I get distracted with something else and it’s usually my ever over empowering emotions or troubled thoughts.  BUT maybe that is what makes a GOOD artist???

I have recently discovered mixed media collage paintings which I have been doing for a couple years now and ATCs ( Artist Trading Cards ).  They are 2.5 x 3.5 inch cards with a cardstock base or other rigid form that are decorated with any form of media.  I will just put a link to a book that will explain it all to you if you are interested in exploring this art form.

and here is an awesome book on mixed media collage painting…
Oh, I need to go to Michael’s to get more supplies!  Any one want to give a STARVING ARTIST a monetary donation?  (Well, I exaggerated…do I really look like I’m starving?)  DONATIONS WELCOME!!!
