ATC Addiction

Water Colour and Ink

Water Colour and Ink


Oh heaven help me, as if Art Journaling isn't addictive enough, I have discovered the joys of Artist Trading Cards!  What is an Artist Trading Card??  Think baseball cards, like the one's you would collect as a kid, with the gum inside.  Except no gum, well if you wanted to you could send gum, could get messy.  Just saying... They are 2.5" by 3.5" miniature pieces of art that artist from all over the world trade.  It's AMAZING. 
So there is a site, it's like mecca for traders it's called ATC's for All.  Go there, check it out, don't blame me for the addiction, I've got my own problems.    I feel like I've had an artistic epiphany.  Over the last few months, I've found my courage to make, and share my makings... publicly and dang it all, I'm on a roll.  It feels good, really GOOD, to create and explore.  I feel energized, and focused. (Or at least focused on my art :) )
 The above cards are for an ATC swap, the theme was Tim Burton style fairytale characters.  Well, anyone who knows me, and knows me well, knows that I am a Winnie the Pooh fanatic.  He's permanently etched on my body, such is the love I have for the bear.  So, I decided to Burton-ify them.    Eeyore, was a sketch in my sketchbook because heck if I knew if it was even possible that the Bear could be Burtonized.   However, I'm pretty dang happy with them!  I almost don't want to give them away, so I'm glad I at least have Eeyore! 
 
Stay Safe, and Love Yourself,

  2. These are great! And I know just what you mean about the whole ATC business! I have been making them non-stop since July! (And trading most of them, though I *try* to save a few for my Etsy shop!) I'm actually a member of atcsforall and another site, too! Your style is great and you did a terrific job on the Pooh characters. :)
