i heart my atc’s

Okay so the whole reason I switched to this new lovely blog design is because I felt that the last one was too formal. I never would have posted these amazingly beautiful ATC’s I just got from a friend I’ve known since I was baby sleep deprived and scrapbook obsessed (published in simple scrapbooks and oh quite a few other thing yes indeedy).

(are they not beautiful the pictures just can’t show the sheen and depth)

If you aren’t sure what an ATC is it stands for Artist Trading Card. ATC’s are made to be traded. They are the size of a playing card and can be made from anything, paper, found items, traditional artistic elements, anything, they just have to be the size. They are amazingly fun and theraputic and because they are small they are not intimidating and they are so satisfying because you can get one done in just a sitting or two. I did most of mine digital. Anyhoo, I just got three in the mail and I will be sending three back!

thank you Marty!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
