Artist Trading Cards are the size of a regular playing card...
2 1/2 by 3 1/2.
You create art on one side, on the other side you place your information and then you swap with other artists.
I am part of an awesome group that swaps 2 ATCs monthly,
Back in February, I posted the Artist Trading Cards
I had received for my birthday month.
I absolutely loved getting such creations
in the mail!
Right now, I'm on a break from making them. Sometimes I have so many passions, I end up with an unrealistic amount of creative outlets.
However, I hope to get back into ATC creating again soon.
I have tons of backgrounds, so it actually wouldn't be that difficult to jump back on the ATC wagon.
Earlier in the year, since I had planned on creating tons of ATCs for my group, I decided to mass produce some.
Well, at least the backgrounds.
Here's what I did.
I took some scrapbooking sheets...
On the blank side I glued regular playing cards.
I could fit 12 per sheet.
Next the real fun begins -
painting and decorating the backgrounds.
I used white gesso, black gesso, acrylic paints, water, paper towels, bubble wrap, foam brushes, bubble painting,
and my fingers.
I loved doing this.
I just simply created 60 ATCs that are ready for their flair.
Here are some ATCs I've created this year.
Here is the 1st ATC I ever created...
and a few more I've done recently.
I love creating Artist Trading Cards.
They are simple, fun, and the best part is....
getting them in the mail.
Peace, Inspiration, & Love,
