Paper and Pots

So recently my local arts group, EVA, had a tutorial on ATCs. ATCs are artist trading cards for anyone who may not know. I have made two sets so far and really like the look of them. I enjoy making them, as well. We did a Rockabilly theme last month. I am not all that into Rockabilly so I did a Sailor Jerry tattoo series. We also did butterflies in June. I would like to keep working on these and maybe exchange with people in other countries. Not sure how to go about doing that, but eventually I will search the web and see if I can find international exchanges.

My husband and I got a potter's wheel while we were in Nebraska. I have always had my jewelry and he has music, so now we have found a common hobby. He took classes in college and I have always liked the idea of throwing pots. I had a toy potter's wheel when I was in third grade. You could make real pots out of clay, but it was definitely a kiddie version. I was telling my husband about it and then found a photo of me with the wheel last night. Too funny!

  1. I had never heard of ATCs, sounds like a great idea! I love the ones you've posted, especially the Sailor Jerry series - I'm sure if you posted in the ETC or promotions forums on Etsy loads of other artists would like to exchange cards with you. How big are they?

  2. They are 2.5" X 3.5". The same size as sports trading cards and a deck of playing cards. They are a lot of fun to make. We will see if others in my local group start making more of them. If not, perhaps I will check etc on etsy. Thanks for the sugestion.
