  7. My fave mixed media supplies are various tissues, especially those with text. Unique fibers, including threads, yarns and ribbons. Interesting scraps of paper, especially metallic. I also like glitter, especially super fine for a touch of shimmer, not tons of it -less is more in most cases.

  12. I "liked" your excerpt on FB about this give-away. I like paper too much. My favourite technique is probably gluing on paper. I just like collaging all those cool papers down on other papers. I think I need to get out more!!!
