At the artistradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting a Christmas Tree themed ATC swap.  The backgrounds are gelli prints.  The Christmas tree German scrap and Tim Holtz Christmastime ephemera are available at Collage Stuff. I edged the ATC's with a blank ink pad.  Thanks for coming by my blog!

Letter "A" ATC swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the October swap is a letter "A" ATC swap.  I used vintage text for the background.  I used acrylic paints to stencil the background.  The leaves were outlined with a white Pilot pen.  The stamp, Frida and phone image are all available on collage sheets at Collage Stuff.  I used a black German scrap border (Collage Stuff)  to finish the bottom of the ATC.  I glued down a thin mica tile over the Frida image.  I generated the letter "A" and the word "artist" on my PC.  The edges of the ATCs were finished with green paint.  Thanks for coming by to see these ATCs.

Halloween ATC's

I'm hosting a Halloween-themed ATC swap on the artisttradingcards yahoo group.  I used a Collage Stuff collage sheet - Witchy Woman for the main image. I bought the printable background papers at Etsy.  I used a variety of Tim Holtz items - chit chat stickers, mirror stars, and ephemera.  The orange German scrap border is available at Collage Stuff.  Thanks for stopping by to see my art!

Clocks ATC swap on the Artisttradingcards Yahoo Group

I'm hosting a clocks themed artist trading card swap on the artisttradingcards yahoo group.  This is my art for the swap.  I printed some clock transparencies, and used vintage ledger pages for the background. Glossy accents works perfectly for adhering transparencies.  I found the image of the man and the ship in my stash.  The numbers are all from UK bus tickets.  The floral Victorian scrap is available at Collage Stuff and the little Venise piece was something I found in my stash.  I never know what I'm going to find in my art stashes. Thanks for coming by today!

More Calendar Pages

I'm still making March calendar pages for the Collage Stuff 2017 Handmade Calendar Swap.  I got in some new stencils from Stencil Girl and I'm particularly loving the "bullseye" stencil.  I found some white foamy stickers in my stash.  They're perfect because I can color them with paint to match the art. Thanks for coming by today to view my calendar pages!

2017 Handmade Calendar Swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, I'm hosting a handmade calendar swap.  The pages are 4" x 6" and 13 pages must be handmade.  The backgrounds are made with acrylic paints and stencils.  I used Dylusions stamps, a Unity stamp, and a Dina Media stamp.  The images are colored with glaze pens, colored pencils and souffle pens.  Usually I made all of my 13 pages the same, but this time it's looking like they will all be different!  Thanks for stopping by to see some of my calendar pages.
