Welcome! To start the blog, I have posted just a few recent ATCs that I have made and traded. I chose these to show the variety of methods that I use in creating ATCs. Some, such as Odie, are entirely hand drawn using Copic Markers.
With others, such as Dory, I draw an image, but then attach it to printed scrapbook paper.
Some ATCs incorporate ephemera, such as cancelled postage stamps or old book pages, as can be seen in the nursing ATC.
The fun with ATCs is that you are only limited by your own imagination and creativity.
The good news is that even when your own creative juices are at a standstill, there are unlimited resources online. With this blog, I will be linking to the sites of other artists’ who share great techniques. I will also be posting pics of ATCs that I receive in trade from other artists around the world. I swap on Swap-bot so you may see some of your art here someday, too!
It is my hope with this blog to share with others the joy I have found in creating ATCs, inspire others to create their own mini works of art, and teach a few interesting techniques for ATC art. Come back often to see what’s new!
