This week, I made my first ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards. My friend, Desiree, organized a swap party with some of her artist friends and invited me as well, even though I'm not really an artist. I had absolutely no idea what to do, so I took a bag of random supplies to the weekly craft day I attend, and pulled these together:
I went for a general fairy tale/literary theme. A '1001 Tales' card, a Harry Potter card, Kuan Yin, Fairy Tale cottage, pirate ship, etc...
The backs I designed in photoshop and paint, and then Mr. Bear cut them out for me on his laser. I sandwiched them all together and stitched them on my machine.
