Artist Trading Cards

Imagine

Imagine

I have been very lazy over these winter holidays and  have come to the conclusion that I need deadlines to function =). Well one way to overcome that hurdle was to join an art group. After much research I have joined an Artist Trading Card group and have just finished my first batch of ATCs using tissue paper and foam!

I strongly urge all of you out there interested in collage and mixed media to try their hand at ATCs. The Artist Trading Card Workshop be Bernie Berlin is an excellent book to get you started, but let me warn you…ATCs are extremely addictive =)…

ATCs measure 3.5 inches by 2 inches…that is their standard size. They are made to be traded with other artists or to be a part of your collection. ATCs are never sold! So making ATCs is like doing art for art’s sake. Joining a group and trading with other srtists is also a great way to learn new techniques and make new friends with the same interests.

Try something new! Make a few ATCs!

  1. I just found your site and find your work very beautiful. I’m a watercolor and pencil artist, but also got into the ATC trap a few years ago, Your right its addicting. I belong to the yahoo group Artist Trading cards and have done a few swaps and individual trades. A lot of fun. lately though I’ve been getting more into mixing fabric and paper and enjoying that too.
