Artist Trading Cards

 Every other month, a group of friends makes ATCs for each other. These days when in-person meetings are still rare, it's a way to stay in touch. It's an excuse to do something creative, on a small scale and in a very small series. One person might experiment with a new art supply or some bits of fabric remaining from a larger project. Another may pull out paints or rubber stamps that have languished, unused for a while. It’s good to have a deadline. There is no set theme, but in February, my own choices often reflect memories of elementary school valentines, cut out and embellished with paper lace. You can never go wrong if it includes a heart.
