Art Card Giveaway by Tracy Elliot Designs



I'd like to introduce you to my aunt-in-love, Tracy Elliot. She lives in Santa Rosa, CA where she draws, paints, does altered art, makes jewelry, and enjoys scrapbooking. "I have always loved various forms of art. I love to draw, and started when I was very young, I have taken every art class available at our local community collage. I started scrapbooking about 30 years ago and still love it." She has recently opened her own Etsy shop and has dedicated it to showcasing her lovely talents as an artist. She is currently working on a series of Art Trading Cards, which are small pieces of art that can be displayed almost anywhere. Each piece is one of a kind.


Tracy works in a spare bedroom-turned-office. "I am semi-organized most of the time. I have many framed original cartoons drawn for me by famous cartoonists that I love and they inspire me. I also have in my craft room vintage cameras, and toys on shelves that I like to look at to start the creative juices flowing." Her inspirations include Tim Holtz, grunge, altered art, Steampunk, and anything distressed.



She works around her physical ailments, but enjoys the process: "I have Fibromyalgia, so I basically craft when I feel well enough to do so. Sometimes it's a little bit each day... It is first and foremost something I love to do, and if I make a little money doing it, that's a really nice bonus."



What is some advice Tracy offers to other crafters?
"Did you know that you can use Michaels and JoAnne's 40% coupons right off of your phone, and that you can use them more than once? You probably did, but I just learned that. Also, my favorite store Beverly's takes their competitors coupons which is really cool."
