I've just completed 27 ATCs for my first ever Artfest ATC Book swap. I mass produced 27 completely different pieces of art in the course of 2 days! The swap is due this Friday, and I just sent it off this morning...we'll see if I make the deadline. :) It was fun and waiting til the last minute reminded me of all those late nights spent writing stories or finishing up art projects in college (and high school...and middle school...and elementary school--do you see the pattern?) :) I made six of the ATCs WAY ahead of time...it was just the last 21 I did in two days. It was pretty simple after I got a basic "pattern" down. Each card has a main image of a woman or girl on a funky background (pre-printed scrap paper--I applaud those artists who craft their own backgrounds from scratch!), a butterfly, a torn scrap of vintage sheet music, and a postage stamp-shaped image in the corner. I also added a scrap of funky fiber/yarn/ribbon to one edge, but I took the pictures before I decided to add it, so just use your creative imagination. ;) Here's a few of my favorites (although, I must admit, I was very happy with all of them! It was hard to part with them, but I will get an entire book full of 27 ATCs from other artists around the country (and globe?) who love art and all things ARTFEST.
