DT Member Spotlight: Blackdragon...lynx

I had the pleasure of "meeting" Blackdragon through DT Member TerryO. She and TerryO have been friends for quite a bit. When the ATC Swap group was first established at the Village, TerryO posted some of Blackdragon's work. I'm sure it was less than 5 minutes later that I was e-mailing her asking her if she'd like to join us on the DT as well...

Blackdragon has crafted in one way or another all of her life. Her interests lie in the darker side of art -- dragons, fae, magic, demons, devils, vampires, goth fantasy. As she puts it, she is " odd-ball... loves to get messy... loves to try new things... and loves to recycle/upcycle." Her art is testament to her passion.

Serving also as a founding DT member, you will always find Blackdragon at the Village and on the DT. Although not a cardmaker, she does enjoy creating card keepsakes for family and friends as needed. Her creation preferences include Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), altered items, one-off pieces of jewelry, and anything slightly strange and out of the norm. She keeps her tools simple, calling on her Wizard and Tim Holtz dies and her stamp collection of several thousand stamps to work her magic.

In the scrapbooking arena, Blackdragon is a traditonal scrapbook artist. She loves the cut and paste of it all, creating layouts normally in the 8x8 size category. Per Blackdragon, she is technology-challenged and therefore stays firmly rooted in traditional scrapbooking.

In her own words, Blackdragon's "...favorite things to make are anything Poe/The Raven, Halloween/Macabre, as well as jewelry, wall hangings and boxes." Her art is passionate, detailed, and full of depth. Look for Blackdragon at the Village giving us tips and techniques in stamping, inking and all things color. All of her creative avenues will be showcased there. Her work can also be found on her blog -- Black Dragon Designs.

Much love,

  1. Look at my girl all famous! *smile* It's such a pleasure to see Lyn's beautiful work - yep, I'm a big fan! I'm learning so much through these fabulous blog pages - don't know what I'd do if I hadn't met up with the Divas from the village and other places, to name a few! This is a great write up SD!
