Sarah over at La-De-Dah has a regular feature called My Monthly Mojo and for the month of January, she features Artist Trading Cards, the little works of art that are a great way to be creative even when you don't have that much time.
Of course I had to play along since it was making ATCs that got me started on painting bigger pieces and making other projects.
I started making ATCs and then trading them in ATCs for All, where everyone is welcome to join in the fun of trading.
I haven't done any trading recently but Sarah's post inspired me to make some ATCs again.
First, I cut some scrap board to the specified 2½" x 3½" size.
I covered the cards in bookpaper, drew an outline of each girl and gessoed this part.
I colored them with watercolor, colored pencils, copic markers, poster paints, and whatever else I have.
I then added scrap paper, magazine cutouts, stamped images, and other bits and pieces.
I still have a few more to finish (making a lot all at the same time makes it easier for me to part with them). And just to say thank you to my visitors, I'm giving away one of these ATCs on Valentine's day. Let me know in a comment if you would like a chance to own one of these and if you are a follower, let me know in a separate comment for a second chance to join this giveaway.
And if you haven't yet, you might want to join my giveaway for the My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software. Hugs to all of you!
