2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Make _ _ _ _, not war! on: February 04, 2007 06:27:28 AM

An earlier discussion about posting this & what I'm hoping to say starts round the middle of p.3 of: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145448.0

And, um, happy valentines!

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATCs made in groups (picture-heavy) on: January 11, 2007 07:02:02 PM
I thought I'd post a couple of examples of cards made in groups -- those below were made by two friends and me. Sorry they're so big, I'm still figuring out how to use the photo edit software so please pm me if you can help me shrink them more.

In the first bunch we each had certain materials that we could add onto cards as they went around the table, which led to:

Kitties Are Hiking

Kitty Flies

Juice Kitten

Kitty Has a Nightmare:

...and in these, we took turns quickly adding images made out of only a pair of dots, scissors, and black marker:

(The pictures above include an alien eye, tea & cookies viewed from above, peace broken & bleeding, a chocolate-covered cherry, a lava lamp, and an eight-ball.)

We begin with Angelina Jolie:

Moving on to Brad Pitt:

and finishing with -- who else? -- Madonna:

[I see from some other posts that the six- and eight-legged were in the collective craftster conscience in the last week! Bzzzz...I mean, bizarre!]
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Same materials, fun different outcomes on: November 29, 2006 07:50:36 PM
Shugrbee & me used the same Japanese paper, magazine jeans ad, ad for coffee, and bookmark for New York University to make our cards independently.

Here's what I made. The caption for the 2nd one says "Try as he might the white man could not fit in. The little hut in the 6th one is on fire (so it is about earth, water, air and fire). In the 8th one the cactus revolutionaries are speaking their own nonsense, I mean cactus, language.

And after, we got to trade. Shugrbee gave me her 5th & 8th ones which are nice & floaty.

(this is my very 1st posted project!)
