Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

ATC Challenge: Queen of Sharpies:)

I’ve known about ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) but had never made one or received one.  I have to admit, I didn’t think too much about them…mostly, because I always hesitate to call myself an artist.  I would consider myself a lover of art…of all things creative really…in all the forms one can create. Art, Music, Food, Photography….the written word.  As my kids have slowly “left the nest” I am finding more time to discover just what it is I love to create most.  I am enjoying the journey.  Because of an amazing group of artists I connect with, I have my first opportunity to participate in an ATC Swap. It is based on a theme to honor our fellow artist and teacher Joanne Sharpe:)

It’s a smaller more detailed version of the  Journal page from my last post.

The cards are small…2 1/2 X 3 1/2.

At first, I was worried about creating detail in something so small…

But once I got started, I loved doing it!

It’s hard to tell (in this shot) that the Crown and Heart are actually  3 Dimensional.  I used Glossy Accents by Inkssentials.
