ATCs for AJC

Welcome to Acronyms R Us.

Tangie of the Art Journal Caravan (2014 signups available now) (it will be the last year) announced an ATC swap open to AJC members. Since I've only ever seen digital work from most of the caravanners, I thought it sounded like fun, plus I like making ATCs, so I signed up.

You had to make 12 of them, alike or different so I got out my ATC box full of backgrounds, partially completed ATCs, ATC stamps, ATC sleeves, etc, and dug around. I found enough partial ones to swap with just an afternoon's work in finishing them off. Some were pretty much done but I added doodling or stamps to perk them up a little.

I'll get 10 in return in a couple weeks and it'll be fun to see them.

Looking at the pictures I just uploaded, they're quite a mixed bag of techniques, materials, and time periods. Everything from vintage ledger paper to last week's magazines.


  1. These are all wonderful -- after our white swap, maybe we should do ATCs for a few rounds. Just a thought.

  2. Thanks for the info! LOVE the cards, too.

  3. I was just going to say I loved your ATC's and then I saw Connie's comment...I think we should have some private swaps in 2014. And thanks for the super cool SF map collage card. Got it yesterday and I love it. I had just mailed something out to you earlier in the day...

  4. Love them. Nice to use up the scraps, huh?

  5. what a great bunch of cards. I especially like the one with the statue of the head and the gold coin.

  6. Cool Leslie - try doing some postage stamp folks next time LOL....

  7. I've been looking at your blog through out the year and have admired the art goodness you've shared here.Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and look forward to seeing you in 2014 through the blog!

    happy holidays.
