ATCs Revival

 (drawn and watercolored poppies)

I haven't made many Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) in the last year. It's the same with the scrapbooking. I had lost interest. 2 weeks ago though, I found a long forgotten forums board for ATC creators where they trade and do swaps. I thought I would try again at making ATCs. Here are some I've made over the last 2 weeks:

(Excuse most of the pictures. I took initial pictures with my camera phone, fully planning to come back and take pics with my camera before they mailed. That didn't happen. I forgot.)

(more poppies)

(fabric ATCs with Red Lead images)

(more fabric ATCs with Red Lead images)

(drawn and watercolored Laundry ATCs)

(paper collaged/stamped House Map ATCs w/Red Lead images)

(mixed media ATCS w/mica and beeswax added, using Red Lead images)

(handrawn & watercolored Macro fruit ATCs)

Wow! These are such amazing, incredible, beautiful ATCs! You have been busy.

Thanks for sharing the links.

What a fun way to spend art time.

back in the game for sure! what a stunning array of ATC's ... i love the variety of your styles and techniques. I am just getting into ATC's although i did tags for 8 months (catching up on a year long project!) and loved the size for daily exploration & art making.

Yes, thanks for all the yummy inspiration!

Everything you do is absolutely beautiful. OK, my favorite mystery writer is Dean Koontz. I signed up to receive your newsletter, and I think the favorite thing I see in you ETSY shoppe is "She shall be praised" That is amazing. Love it.
I will be back. Thank you for sharing.
