Some Artist Trading Card Resources

Textile Artist Trading Card with using selvages or selvedges
My June 2016 Artist Trading Card under construction!

As I know people always have concerns about putting together their Artist Trading Cards, I thought I’d pull together some links to some of the posts that I’ve written and that guest swappers have written over the years. Other sources of inspiration are the Very Berry ATC Swap Flickr Group (please do load your pics there if you are a Flickr user), and did you see my film on YouTube?

ATC Top Tips

Tips from Bekki on sizing and design.

Labelling at Artist Trading Card

Mini-tutorial by me on using Transfer Artist Paper to label the back of your card.

 

ATCs and the creative process

Some fab thoughts from Catherine on bringing your ideas together.

ATC construction ideas

Some practical ideas for creating the shape of your ATC from Carley.

Finding your ATC inspiration

A great post about bringing your ideas together by Susan, including a pic of Ryan Gosling to distract you..

Making your own printed fabric for your ATC

Mini-tutorial by me about how to print our own unique piece of fabric for your ATC – you can print the back too. I think this is my favourite way to present the info on the back of the ATC. Remember, you need to include the title (in this case you could use the theme, ‘Small Things’, your name, the date, and means of contact – email, IG name, etc.).

Another way to construct your ATC

Mini-tutorial by me showing another way of putting an ATC together, layer by layer.

When your ATC goes missing

Staying philosophical if the worst happens… a post about the post by me.

 

And finally – do keep in touch with me during the swap, and feel free to come to me with any questions you might have. Thanks so much for swapping along!
