Digital Collage Artist Trading Cards

Every month there is an ATC (Artist Trading Card 2.5″ x 3.5″) trade at Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria. My offering will be 12 small fabric digital collages. On wispy see through organza I printed out a collage which I placed over hand dyed fabric.  They were then stitched with gold metallic thread.

Soon I will be teaching this technique at Artistic Artifacts. The class will be in two parts, beginning with the digital collage aspect. The second class will cover making a print out and selecting fabric for the design.  Details will be posted here as soon as I have the dates!

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.
