31  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Cat ATC's (collage) on: March 03, 2011 02:26:07 AM
For this series of ATC's I cut a cat out of a box of catfood, scanned it and resized the picture in Photoshop.
The backgrounds are made from luxury papers (the last two of them have glitters, but that doesn't really show up in the scans).



I hope you like them.
Kind regards,
BeaG

I made three more ATC's, using retro wallpaper, a vintage French bookpage, satin ribbon and a little blingy flower.



I hope you like them.

35  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!

36  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!

37  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!

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.

39  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.

40  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!
