Last year I re-discovered the website swap-bot.com, a great website for swapping. I also discovered swapping one of my new favorite things: ATC’s–artist trading cards. It’s like little pieces of art and even better, they’re easy to store. They fit in baseball sleeves so I have a great album set up for my collection, which I’ll have to share!

I love creating ATC’s because you get to share your art with others, and sometimes you get the challenge of creating art you wouldn’t have necessarily thought of. This is one of those challenges. The challenge for this swap was to make an ATC using only straight lines. I pulled out a ruler, some colored pens and make an ATC!

And man, what a challenge it was! I don’t consider myself “artistic,” despite the meaning of ATC, I consider myself crafty, so to make something from scratching like this with just pens and a blank piece of paper. It’s so intimidating! I do like what I ended up with, though, and I hope my partner likes it, too.

  1. I think your take was very creative. Mine, on the hand, may go into File 13.

  2. Very nice interpretation of the challenge. 🙂
