Welcome to the World of Michael Trent, a crazy American artist living in the countryside of Sao Paulo, Brasil. A person in love with paper, stencils, rubber stamps, and markers. The creator of StenDoodle, a technique that merges stencils with doodling. I hope you enjoy your time in my World!
Hey everyone. Been too long since I last posted. Am back in Brasil now - pretty much permanently - and have a lot of projects in the works. Now that ALL of my rubber stamps, papers, inks, markers, etc. are here with me, I will be posting much more often!!
My big announcement today is that I have been asked to be on the design team for Momento Divertido - a company here in Brasil that makes chipboard pieces for the scrapper, stamper, and altered artist. Dani and Fabio, who own the company, have become good friends with us and we've been selling their products here in the store. I was never much of a chipboard user in my work but I love their designs and the ideas really flow here. Their website, if you want to check it out is www.momentodivertido.com.br. My first post to their blog - http://time-momentodivertido.blogspot.com.br/ - will be on September 30th. I will be posting on their blog in Portuguese and here on this blog in English. Hope you stop by to check out what I will be doing.
Other stuff in the works - I will be doing 4 blog posts for my friend Cindy Echtinaw who owns www.stampingscrapping.com and who just came out with her amazing Card Creator dies for Spellbinders. The dates I will be on her blog are October 10th, 17th, 24th, and the 31st. I have a bunch of stuff already done, including some cards, a scrapbook page/frame idea (and I don't even scrap), and some home decor ideas. More ideas flowing. Also started to work with resin. Although it's a Brasilian brand, any resin will work the same way and I will be having some tutorials coming up. Well, that's it for now. Hope you stop back. ~Michael
