This is me,a wife, Mum, stylist to my star like clients and whatever else I can have a go at. Living in Nova Scotia as a British ex-pat has it challenges and rewards so this is an account of my ecclectic magpie soup.

The ATC.

A good friend of mine has introduced me to the ATC.Which to be honest I had know idea what she was talking about and felt to lame to ask but eventually did and found it meant Artist Trading cards.I know I am by no means an artist I was intrigued at this art form. It is steeped in it own history and has been around for quite some time and is basically your art/craft on a 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 size card or card stock and is traded but is not done for monetary gain.
It was quite difficult actually trying to express yourself on such a tiny space and was a challenge in itself. My friend told me about this site she was following http://challengesfromtheattic.blogspot.com.Here was the challenge.To produce 3 cards that expressed "All About Me" This is what I did, my first ATC`s..

Last but not least...

I`m quite happy with the results and now I think I`ll play around with this medium a little more maybe one day grow up to be an artist....


  1. I love how they are all unique from each other, yet each one is totally you! Great job on them!

  2. Thanks Jasmine I appreciate your comments I must admit it was harder than I thought it would be.

  3. These are all awesome! I'll enter you three times since you made three ATC's. If you want to email me, you & I can do a swap. Then you could do a swap with Jasmine. Also, I decided on mine to save one for myself being the first I've ever done... the beginning of my collection! Make sure you write your name on the back so everyone will alway know who it artist was on it!
