Hi Nat! Glad to be a returning member of Creative Jumpstart! In response to your inquiries:
I am Leslie Ibler and I reside in Illinois. (U.S.A.) I love mixed media, collage, and art journaling, getting my hands messy with all kinds of colors paints, inks, and gel medium. Is there anything more satisfying than peeling dried gel medium off your fingers???? My favorite art medium….I cannot pick just one, for fear of hurting the feelings of all the others. Tools…items from nature-branches, twigs, leaves, and flowers. I also like using rubber geometric patterned trivets, sequin waste, stencils, and stamps. The last thing I created and am working to finish, is a colorful antelope, named Tall Boy per Dina Wakely’s lesson from Wanderlust 2021.
