Several months ago I made some Artists Trading Cards, posted a few here, and then put that project aside. That is so Frannish. This weekend I returned to this project. Loretta has convinced me that I have my style and I don't have to constantly compare myself to others.
Shown here are 3 of the cards I made tonight. If you are unfamiliar with the guidelines, the cards are 2.5 x 3.5” and technically they are supposed to be traded at ATC swaps. They are never to be sold. The sky is the limit, I guess. I like the format because I can scan them and put a copy in my journal. They make great writing prompts.
The ATC concept was founded in Switzerland and you can see the ATC history at the Artist Trading Cards site. I just keep making them and have never traded.
Today, while visiting my spiritual director in Culver City, I stopped at Stampin’ From the Heart and Kelley Kilmer, a wonderful mixed media artist, was teaching. And this weekend is the spring Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson sponsored by a Stamp in the Hand. Don’t let the rubber stamp handle get in your way; there are classes, an ATC trade, many dealers of stamps, inks and mixed media supplies, and even classes. It is really fun!
