Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for May 2010 is
Hello art lovers! My name is Trina Kison and I am a married 25 year old stay-at-home mother to 2 wonderful boyz. I have been an artsy creative gal ever since I was a young child. Art is a passion of mine and I love just sitting down in my craft room and being creative. 12 x 12 layouts, mini albums, cards, tags, canvas, paints, spray inks, mixed media, altered items.... the list could go on and on with all the stuff I love to create & use. I am always trying out new techniques and experimenting. I have just started doing videos on YouTube and have met so many great ladies:http://www.youtube.com/user/LifeIsScrapTastic
