ATC madness

Linn is here! Hurrah! She arrived on Thursday. Saturday was the Artist Trading Card (ATC) workshop. Although it only had 6 participants we had fun and were productive in the way that only small groups can be. We unlocked our creativity and our glue sticks/spray/etc. Linn had brought lots of stuff - fabrics including some wonderful sheers, threads - iron on and others, sequins - all types and some sequin waste, beads, paints, crayons, and and and.... It made the creativity easy.

We made individual cards rather than a whole sheet at a time. We had card blanks (watercolor paper) and separate labels to apply. We started with the crayons that are watercolors. It was a great way to jump in with both feet and create a background. The class was very diverse and our cards were very different - even if we used the same materials.

As time went on cards acquired names. I created and finished 4 and then began a series In the picture (which does not do justice to the texturedness of the cards) they are:
summer spring
autumn winter
Fire 1 Fire 2 - these are in process

Running around for turkey day and family gathering. Hope everyone's day is full of good food and good cheer!
