Artists trading cards and Red

Yesterday I did two things that influenced how I spent today,I dyed a bedspread red and found out all about ATC'S.ATC's have to be an exact size and cannot be bought or sold, you can decorate them as you like then when they are finished you can swap them with other people .

I was so pleased with the bright red of the bedspread that was a grubby flea market buy last weekend that I had the colour red in my head all day. I wanted to photograph the red roses in the garden but it rained and rained instead I wore my red shoes and red top then when I began to try and make the ATC'S I found myself choosing red. I might add some words ( if I can find the right ones)tomorrow.Then I must find out how to discover ATC makers and do a swap.I think that may be the difficult bit!!!


  1. Hi Gill, loving your ATCs, you get so much texture into them. As for swapping them I participate in swaps on
    It's an artist site just for women. See what you think, but beware, it can be addictive :)

  2. Hi Gill,Great ATC's love the doll face,
