My ATC Love Affair !!!

In 2005,  I read my first article on a new art thing sweeping the country. It was called Artistic Trading Cards.  Little by little all the art magazines started talking about this new art craft. I was very intrigued. So, I started to play with making these cards on my own.  That soon was not enough.  I looked all around my town for people who might be trading.  No one was trading and the shops had no idea what I was talking about.  So, what must a girl do??? ..... Start her own group.  And I started teaching classes at the local scrapbook shops too. 

Here are a few of my ATC's that I have made. I have made over 1000 cards. Which means I have collected over 1000. I really love all my little treasures. They are from all over the world. They are fast and quick and so much fun. Everyone should try one or two. But, be careful... they are like potato chips..... you might not be able to make just one. :):)

These cards can be made out of any medium you want.

Some of my favorite cards are of course made with my fabric leftovers.

It is this creative persons opinion that everyone should try to make some ATC's. They are a lot of fun.     If anyone is interested in trading with me, let me know. I'm always game when it comes to making and trading these little guys :):)

Hi: It's Marlynne again. I have thought it would be fun to send and receive some ATC's. Tell me how to go about it, and your address and I will try it! Sounds like fun!
