Until recently, I never felt confident enough to give ATCs a go, but now I have and am rather pleased with the results. Here are some that I am rather proud of:

The themes were (L-R): Random fact, stained glass and location
In particular this one:

I am tempted to go and take some painting lessons to make them look a bit more real.

Oh and a question for anyone who can help me, I wrote on the back of the above beach scene 1/1 thinking I'd only be making the one because it was an Acrylic theme and I chose to paint a beach, but now I'm doing another beach themed one with Acrylic paint - does the series etc thing matter or can I just say 1/1 again? Even though I may in the future choose to do a few more beach themed ones because I quite like how it turned out.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.

Great first ATCS! I love the little facts you have on them, but the stained glass is my favourite.

Numbering your ATCs is up to you - I know most I receive are not numbered. I would only put 1/8, 2/8 etc on cards if I made a series that was then distributed to different Craftsters during a swap. Otherwise there is really no way of knowing if you'll make another of the same theme at some later date. It's up to you, but I think 1/1 is fine! Smiley

very nice!  i think my fave is the random fact Smiley

i only number mine if i am doing something where i make them all the same (we used to do a local swap and would make say 10 of the same design -- 1 per person)

Thanks for your words, I really enjoy doing atcs.

Thank you also for confirming my thoughts, I did think it would be stupid numbering it if I don't know if I'm making more.

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
