This weekend I have been playing in another Art-a-Thon and Challenge at ATCsForAll.com. It runs through July 6th. The challenge is somewhat of an artsy scavenger hunt. You are given a list of themes, supplies, and challenges to make art & earn points for completing the various tasks.
For example, The ATC (artist trading card) shown above earned me 5 points! I made the card for a combination of tasks: theme: cute monster, theme: bikini, craft: make paper flowers and use in your creation, and also a point for posting at least 1 finished project for the day.
Here are some more ATCs I made this weekend:
Hand drawn zebra - Indian ink and colored pencils. (theme: zoo, also theme: monochromatic). I love the way this turned out.
Doodle fish - Indian ink pen and marker. (theme: zentangle animal, also use markers, and I posted a "show and tell" about my process to make this card).
Skele-shrooms - Printed paper and fiber embedded paper collage with a sticker, magazine cut-outs, hand drawn mushrooms colored with ink and sparkly gel pens, and some detailing with Indian ink pen and paint pen. (theme: skeleton, theme: mushroom and butterfly, use magazine cut-outs).
There is also fast and wild trading going on. I have traded most of my cards already (you get points for that,too). At the end, prizes are awarded for the top scorers. But, who needs prizes? It's just a lot of fun to play with all the artists!
