What is an ATC?

What is an ATC?

This damned ATC thing has me hooked well and truely!

When I signed up for this swap, which is called, by the way, "What is an ATC?", I was very new to these little mind-sized bites of art making. That was the criteria for the swap. Since then I have made quite a number of them using some old media and some new. I think about the next swap all day and try to think of unusual interpretations of the theme, as in the last one shown here. I can spend a couple of hours in the evening making a series of cards to go out in the mail the next day. They are small enough to play with on my knee.

I am slowly gathering my own little collection of ATCs made by others in return for swaps. I have even contacted a couple of like-minded souls who want to do private swaps with me, away from the formality of Swap-bot. It's a different way of communicating with and getting to know new friends across the world.

This 3 editions of cards maintain my liking for simplicity. I have pasted down a couple of pieces of nice paper. The butterfly comes from one of Dover books CDs of copyright free graphics and is printed on laserjet overhead plastic. To finish off, the little dragonfly was punched out of some silver card.

BTW ... to answer the question "What is an ATC?" you would be best to go to the Art in Your Pocket article on the Cedar Seed web site.
