For mine I used WorldWinn Cardstock, Pattern Paper by Bo Bunny, stickers by Carol Lee's Adorn it, and Die Cut sheets by Paper Reflections....
About the ATC..I've gotten quite a few questions so will try to answer them...
1.what is an ATC? ATC stands for Artist Trading Card..some of you asking are in the Deck of Me Challenge it's the same amount of space 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 you can use a card as your base, just cut cardstock down, or buy blank ones to use...the point is just to make some little bit of artsy goodness share with a friend.
2. Is there a prompt or theme...?no...I want you do do whatever you are inspired to do with these tiny little canvases..if you want to make your own theme for all your cards that's fine too..
here are some links for inspiration...
3.Are there rules? I have only one, okay maybe two...1. please if you say you're going to do it, follow through 2. I am asking everyone to put their information somewhere on the card (ie name, address, ssn, blood type, favorite brand of underwear...the usual) JUST KIDDING...really...but I would like you to have your name, email, blog address, and physical address if you want to share...point of this is that I'm making an artadex (rolodex of art..look at me I made a new word!) and so are you!!! If you want to put a photo of yourself on it..whatever you want to do...
4."oh my gosh , I'm so flippin' busy when the crap am I supposed to have these done by? April 30th sound ok? that's about 6 weeks..if not let me know and I can push it back farther...
If I have not emailed you, it is because I don't have your email address....email addresses don't come through on your comments unless you enable this on blogger...I need email addresses so I can send you my physical address so you can send the cards to me. Except for you PAT, you can just walk next door..LOL.. I'm asking that you send me your cards with a self addressed stamped envelope (with the same amount of postage that it took to get your cards to me) This is pretty standard for all swaps. Right now we have 13 participants, if I missed you please let me know.
here are our participants...
Pat (coolest neighbor ever)
Carolyn (yes I've sucked you in..)
Dianna (you can run but you can not hide)
the few others that had questions and hadn't commited yet, please just let me know...and if I accidentally left you off the list please let me know...I'm going to close sign ups on Friday so we can get going. Sound good?! I'm so excited to see what you all do with these!
I woke up today and realized I will be 34 in a little less than a month...and not to sound repetitive but really, when did that happen?...obviously somewhere around the time the girls started searching for my armpits whenever I lay down...and I ask you..what the hell is up with this hair that has decided to take up residence on my upper lip?
Thanks so much for stopping by! I have some serious blog reading/catching up to do...will try to get that going tonight...
