First Set of Artist Trading Cards ( ATC )

Happy Middle of the week Everyone!

I hope that the first part of your week was restful, fun, exciting, low key (insert whatever word you want here).   And now, we are halfway to next weekend!  WooooooHOOOOOOO!

I have successfully created 18 ATC (Artist Trading Cards) this week and have begun to swap with other creators.  :)  So far, I’m addicted but haven’t quite decided what medium I enjoy creating in.    I am so intimidated (yet fascinated) by all of the ATCs on YouTube and Pinterest it surprises me that I’m willing to continue at this point.  I just LOVE the idea of trading with others around the world so I can have a collection of OPATCs (my WAY cool acronym for Other People’s Artist Trading Cards).

One of my problems as a CADD (Craft Attention Deficit Disorder) is that I burn HOT and fast when I find something I love to do and find myself bored and ready to move on to something entirely different.  Pretty certain there isn’t a medication I can take to overcome this issue.  :/  Oh well.  Of course the problem with CADD is that I can never truly perfect anything I do.

Here are a few of the ATC cards I completed this week:


I’m pretty fond of them.  :)  I am working with polymer clay and yarn as an alternate medium for the ATCs right now.  I’ll let you know how that goes!

I hope the rest of your week is WONDERFUL!  Thanks for stopping by! ~ Dawnee
