Small collages – ready to trade!

It’s satisfying to complete a stack of ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards). I’m looking forward to the ones I will get in return. This is for the JAMs meeting, Sunday, October 15th at Artistic Artifacts at 1:00pm. If you’re in the area, come join us.

FROM ARTISTIC ARTIFACTS WEBSITE: JAMs is Judy’s Altered Minds and is open to anyone interested in Altered Art — both fabric and non fabric art. There is a sit fee of $3.00 per person. We start with ATC Trade at 1:00, group meeting and announcements. Then one show and tell item. We try to arrange a demo, informational part of each meeting.

The images I used in the ATC’s are from paperwhimsy.com

 

Here are the backgrounds painted with ink that were used for the ATC’s

 

 

Ready to trade! The meetings are fun, always filled with creative energy, laughter and sharing.

ATC’s for the Artistic Artifacts JAMS meeting


Judy’s Altered Minds JAMS group meets Sunday, June 25, 2017 at 1pm at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria for Artist Trading Cards, then for the general meeting.


The 2.5″ x 3.5″ trading card collages were made by cutting up some of the gel pen drawings I’ve recently made.

Mass production of ATC’s

On the work table are some collages that will be turned into ATC’s Artist Trading Cards for a visit to Artistic Artifacts where artists trade these fun little 2.5″ x 3″ artworks. I’ve sewn together papers, watercolors, fabric and some shiny radiance papers which are then cut down to ATC size.  It’s a good way to ‘mass produce’ a lot of little collages.
