Do you ever get in a creative slump?

Hi all! It's me, Rita and whenever I get into a little slump I try to do something totally different than what I've been doing lately. ATC's are great for this purpose. You can use any type of medium and be really creative with them. They are very small so they are also quick and they are a great size to try new techniques! These acrylic  ATC card shapes are perfect for this! You might be asking yourself ...

 What is an ATC? ATC stands for Altered Trading Card, a miniature work of art meant to trade ideally in person; on the back is the signature, date, and number (if it is part of an edition)

What size is an ATC? 2 ½ X 3 ½ inch or 64 X 89 mm

You can see that this is a small simple size, a great way to try something new! For these cards I was trying to tell about myself without using words.For the first card you can tell that I love music, and I believe in God. On the the next card you can see that I love the color orange and vintage like items. I also love words and reading. The third one seems self explanitory but if you look closely you will see that the surface has been change, some areas are rough and some are smooth, it represents that I have changed because if the family and friends I have and for that I am truly grateful.

I hope you are inspired to try some ATC's! Thanks for looking!
