ATC or APS??
I remember the first time I saw Artist Trading Cards (ATC's). I couldn’t quite figure out what they were – or why folks made them. The more I became involved with scrapbooking, and coincidentally the more money I spent, the more intrigued I became with ATC’s. I still had no idea what you did with them once you had them, but what the heck – I wasn't interested in making any so I put them on the back burner, along with altered paint sticks.
You know where I’m going, right? A few swaps later I had no choice but to buy the 7 Gypsies ATC Carousel to house the ATC’s I had collected.
I currently have 44 ATC's and am adding one more to my collection. I am swapping with Michelle, my very talented friend in NZ. We decided that our theme was Parisian writers and I chose to honor Colette, a true Bohemian of the era.
Always controversial, Colette was a beautiful woman who lived a very colorful life. I tried to make the photo look as if it was found in a Paris flea market. I used one of my favorite Colette quotes and added a big rose in her hair.
If anyone out there wants to trade cards with me, just let me know – there’s still room on my merry-go-round for a few more cards. If not cards, how about an altered paint stick swap?
