ATCs

I was really gung ho on making miniatures early in the year but have been taking a breather and gotten back into a different creating format.
I have always enjoyed making collages and making ATCs is a form of that. An ATC is an artistic trading card, ALWAYS 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches. They are always TRADED, never sold. I have participated in a number of swaps over the years making them. I love the format because it is small. You can make an interesting one without worrying about how to fill a big page.

Here is a link to tell you more about them if you wish to start on this very addictive hobby...ATCs

Here are a few of the ones I have made recently for swaps on a group called SWAP BOT. It is a large group of different kinds of swaps and ATCs are just one part of it. I like doing themed swaps because it gives me an idea of how to work. But I love the fact that if 10 people are doing the swap you will get 10 completely different interpretations.
