1-4-1 ATCs received

I have been trading 1-4-1 ATCs with individuals both locally and overseas, most are blind trades especially from overseas where you don't know what you are getting.

Eva's ATCS (Australia) check out her Website for more lovely ATCs

ATCs I received from various Australian Artists

I received this one when I was very new to ATCs, it was sent by a lovely lady called Jocelyn Munro who is a New Zealander,she is a mixed media artist and this ATC has all sorts of stuff on it like mesh, sand, fibres etc, its is a work of art.

Shoebox ATC Party's

This concept started with Suzanne at Pennywisearts and was called a Shoebox Party, you'll have to join the online group to find out all the wonderful shennaningins about it.

Basically a shoebox party consists of making a project in kit form and containing all the bits and bobs in a shoebox. Each particpant takes a shoebox project and a good number is about 12 people, each person makes a finished piece of artwork from every box.

There can be a lot of fun, eating and creating at a shoebox party. I had my first shoebox party in June of 2005 and have enjoyed attending many over the course of time.

These are some of the shoebox ATCs I have particpated in, in Australia so far:

My traded ATCs

These are some of my atcs that I have created so far and traded either 1-4-1 or in swaps. In the beginning they were very flat, no embellishments, just using tchniques, they were also very vibrant. Slowly they are evolving and becoming 3D, opps there is a nudie one in there .

I had to use utee to cover up the frame as I had made a mistake and forgot to decorate it before I stuck the frame to the picture, you will see utee on the acetate inside the frame and it looks quite good, again something that happened unintentionally but turned out really nice.

These are magnet bookmark ATCs

This is an ATC purse I made, it was an online class for a card purse at PennyWiseArts Group but seeing as I was doing ATCs I opted to shrink my measurements and made an ATC purse instead. The purse fits 3 bulky ATCs or more of the flat ones. The ribbon I recycled from an easter chocolate I never ate--honest--it sat on my kitchen counter top for a year, I didn't want to undo the packaging until one day I just needed that ribbon.
