My First ATC's for Winter Solstice, 2004
I did not keep any of the cards from my first trade from 2004 for myself, but I did scan each one of them into my computer. Using a crow stencil with black arcrylic paint on torn pieces of bark paper, I made 9 cards on a sheet of card stock. Burning the edges of the bark-paper image, I positioned each crow on top of magazine collage papers. As a final touch, I glued a small Balinese gambling card on each one. As I looked at each card, a name came to mind. Starting with today's blog, I will post these early images between now and the upcoming ATC Playshop on January 18, 2011, in Lyons, Colorado.
