I went to our local Artist Trading Card group yesterday. It's a small group, only five of us yesterday. I got SO inspired, gained lots of information and felt welcomed.
I wanted to share what my trades were. I really wish I had a better camera as these pics do not show how beautiful the ATCs I received actually are:
|my ATC "believe", watercolor background with ink|
|Rachel Marie's ATC "Black Grass", momotype print|
with Akua inks! Absolutely beautiful!
|Marie Lee's ATC "Lavendar" watercolor.|
The colors are wonderful and soothing. I would
love to have this as a painting in my home!
|"never-ending trail", another one of my Zentangle|
|Susan's beautifully creative paper collage|
with gold sequins and gold ric rac. Isn't this
|my "broken pieces", cut up drawing and sparkles|
|Roberta's ATC made from her own stamp|
"Art enables us to find ourselves
and loose ourselves
at the same time."
Isn't that cool?
I made an ATC album back in February to store the cards I receive.
Now I have more cards to start filling it up! I am looking forward to going back every month. Two of the girls have been trading ATCs through a site called atcsforall.com. I'm going to check it out later.
The last ATC trade I pictured here was from Roberta (E. Roberta Altshuler). She is an incredible, well known artist and also has taught all over. She has even been featured on the Carol Duvall show! Roberta has her own original rubber stamp line (and more) over at www.ERAgraphics.com. Throughout the years she has designed thousands of rubber stamps. The ATC above was created from one of her ATC stamps. Tomorrow's post is all about Roberta since I want to give her more than just a blurb at the end of today's post! In the meantime, check out her site and look around!
Have a Super Special Sunday!!!!
