Di, who left a kind comment on juno Dulcet: ATC Selections wants to know what an ATC is. Good question, Di!
ATCs are Artists Trading Cards, little pieces of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5″. They can be in any medium and may originally have been circulated to demonstrate different techniques. They are usually swapped or exchanged but are related to ACEOs, which are Art Cards, Editions, and Originals, which are typically sold. There’s a good article on Wikipedia about them here.
I just learned about these recently myself through my friend Limar who has an art blog, On a Separate Note. Through her I have become interested in taking part in the various challenges and it is so much fun! Coming from 12×12″ digiscrap design like us, Di, it is a real change of perspective but a welcome one to me.
For anyone who wants to give it a try, have a look at the links in my sidebar and in Limar’s as a starting point. You’ll soon be discovering your own 😉
