... did I ever tell you that my first foray into the world of all things "altered" was the humble ATC? Many moons ago there was a forum called Topaz and I was a member. On the forum there was a little section dedicated to peeps who wanted to make and trade ATC's. What's an ATC? Well, for the uninitiated, I have to decree a warning... they are highly addictive for starters! They are little handmade works of art that are swapped - never bought or paid for - between artists and crafters. Now, a few of my forum buddies were making ATC's and I decided I wanted a bit of that.. so I joined in. The measurements are so easy to remember too - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" - the size of a normal playing card. I made my first ATC and was SO enamoured, I made another 9 to go with it. And then I got all excited and made over 100 for forum members, so each member of the forum had their very own ATC with their forum name on. And it still makes me smile that so many of the old forum members come to see me at demo's and in class and always say "I still have that ATC you made me" Why am I waffling on about ATC's? Well, it is my honour to be Guest Designer for ATC's with An Attitude this week. To see the blog, please click HERE.
That there is a little masterboard I made last year - Joanne, who is co-ordinating the Guest Designer thing asked if she could use that as my design because it shows a different thing you can do with ATC's. So there you have it. I do love making ATC's and I think I shall make some today to celebrate how fab and cool they really are. Thanks for looking... TTFN
