February Challenge #1: ATCs

This week, let's make some ATCs! An ATC, or artist trading card, is a small piece of art measuring 2-1/2" x 3-1/2". Other than the size, there really are no other rules -- anything goes! For the base of the card, you can choose from a variety of materials -- cardstock, watercolor paper, cardboard, fabric, or whatever else you might have on hand. Then paint it, collage it, sew it, embellish it, you name it! Post your ATCs on your blog then share your link with us by leaving a comment or sending us an email.

I followed the link from Misty's blog. This sounds interesting. I'm not sure if I'm doing it right but I placed a link to "Inspire Me Thursday" on my blog.

perhaps this is my chance
to step out of my comfort zone
a little...

as i write this i can feel my
inner critic muttering...
"yeah, but tell them to be
gentle with you cause you will
most like suck"

shut up inner critic.
