32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / More ATC's: handdrawn BUGS on: February 08, 2011 12:49:02 AM
I proudly present my latest series of ATC's, figuring handdrawn bugs!

I used a pencil (refill), coloured pencils (Karisma, by Sanford) and ink (fineliner 0.2mm), on cardstock.
I spent two hours on each card.

I was inspired by a book about bugs, but I guess you could say I mutated the bugs (enlarged their bodies, shortened their long legs, to make them better fit the cards).





As always, coloured pencil drawings are hard to scan (or photograph). But after some Photoshopping they look almost as good as in real life.

I would love to know what you think of them (and which one is your favorite).
Thanks!

33  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / 12 more ATC's (colourful silhouettes) on: February 03, 2011 10:27:52 AM
I made these ATC's by tearing coloured strips of paper from magazine pages, glueing them onto a piece of paper, cutting out a silhouette and glueing that onto cardstock.
You might want to try it one day. It is cheap and fun!




They were hard to scan. In real life the colours are a bit different and less pixely.
I would love to know what you think of them and which one is your favorite.
Thanks!

34  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC's 25, 26 and 27 (fabric leaves) on: February 02, 2011 11:26:15 AM
Another series of three ATC's.
I used cotton fabric for the leaves and drew the branches with ink.
They were done on pastel drawing paper.



The yellow/ochre in the last one is actually a shiny gold colour.

I would like to know what you think of them.
Thanks!

35  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC's 22, 23 and 24 (fabric flowers) on: February 01, 2011 02:36:10 AM
Three more ATC's: flowers made out of cotton fabric, and little white stickers, on ochre coloured pastel drawing paper.


I hope you like them.

36  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Neckwarmer (with tutorial) on: January 29, 2011 04:19:38 AM
I made this neckwarmer for Marc on his request (I made him two neckwarmers before, but he wanted one that was tighter around his neck, so that is why I added the button closure and knitted it horizontal instead of vertical this time).




Tutorial:
I used acrylic yarn on 4mm needles.
Knit 2 / pearl 2, over 60 stitches.
After 46 cm (18 inch) I switched colours.
In the 7th row of the second colour I made 4 button holes (by tying off 3 stitches, which I casted back on in the next row).
Added on 2 febr.: it is probably better to make your button holes only 2 stitches wide (I had to sew them in with sewing thread, when Marc noticed that they became too wide).
After 5,5 cm (2.16 inch) of the second colour I finished off.
Then I sewed four large buttons to the other end of the neckwarmer, appr. 1,5 cm (0.6 inch) from the edge.

I hope you like it.

37  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / New series of ATC's (abstract art) on: January 26, 2011 01:57:42 AM
Within a short time I seem to have gotten addicted to making ATC's.
So I proudly present a new series!
I made a monotype/monoprint, by painting on a glass plate and then pressing it onto sturdy white paper (you can only make one print this way, hence the name).
I used acrylic paint (whereas monotypes are often done with ink) and after it dried, I cut up my artwork into 9 seperate ATC's.
I hope you like them.



I would love to know what you think of them!
And which one is your favorite?
Thanks!

38  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC's 10, 11 and 12 on: January 25, 2011 01:00:26 AM
These ATC's were made by scanning a vintage image of a little girl, printing it and then cutting and pasting it (in layers) on enforced craft paper.



Scanning an already scanned picture did not do justice to the pictures. They look better in real life.

I'd love to know what you think of them!

39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC's 7, 8 and 9 on: January 22, 2011 11:18:44 AM
As you may have noticed, I like to make things in series of three.
So, here are three new ATC's I made:



The base of these ATC's is pastel drawing paper, in three different colours (enforced with sturdy paper on the back).
I drew an oakleaf on a page of a vintage French schoolbook, cut it out, and decorated it with ink. Then I pasted it to the pastel drawing paper.

Tip: I have a box full of molds/patterns I made out of recycled cardboard (piza boxes, cerial boxes, etc.). Whenever I need to repeat a certain shape, I make a cardboard pattern/mold for it and keep it, even after the project is done.
This autumn I collected and dried some oak leaves in various shapes and sizes and then drew them over on cardboard to make a nice set of molds. They come in easy for card making, ATC making, making felt figures, etc.
Every time we pack a box of old paper to be collected with our garbage, I take out any piece of cardboard that can be reused and store them in a see through box.

Okay, I'd love to get your comments on my new series of ATC's!
Thanks!

40  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC's 4, 5 and 6 on: January 18, 2011 01:01:02 AM
I made three more ATC's.
They are drawn with ink on thick smooth paper.
I really challenged my fibromyalgia with these three... (yep, I'm stubborn).



I would love to know what you think of them (and which one is your favorite).
Thanks!
