Ever since I got back into snail mailing nearly a year ago, I’ve been hearing the term ”ATC” being thrown about without really knowing what it meant. It wasn’t until recently that I bothered to look in up. What I found was that basically, an ATC is a 2.5” by 3.5” piece of art that you trade with others ( Artist trading card). I was fairly into the idea of small art ( it’s fun but it’s not so big that your motivation or inspiration has time to dwindle away!) and gave it a go on a postcard sized piece. Today however, I decided to finally give an ATC a go, I had already cut a bunch of card stock for it so why not?
Here it is!
It took me a few minutes of staring at the tiny blank card feeling stumped before I could see what I wanted to do on it, but I think it turned out quite well in the end! I am actually really happy with it 🙂 This ATC thing is really fun!! Now I think I might just have to do a gnome themed one for Sincerely Kates mail art contest as it combines 2 things I really like; Gnomes and Contests! Actually 3 things..because now I really really like ATCs too! 🙂
