Lets Face It Challenge for July.
'Lets Make Cards' magazine issue 16 is on sale today and we as a club are featured in it. We have invited it's readers to get together with us on this months challenge, the theme being.... 'Lets Face It'...... here are 3 examples for those who do not know about Artist Trading Cards...ATC's for short.Each of these ATC's measure 2.5'' x 3.5'' and can be achieved by using ANY medium you like to work with, be it stamping, paints, crayons, pen n ink even recycled bits from a magazine/newspaper are just a few examples to choose from.
This challenge is open from to-day 4th July (American Independence Day) until Thursday the 31st July.
We ask that you make 5 ATC's on this months theme (they can either be all the same or each one different...the choice is yours). Keeping one for your own collection you send in the other 4 to me (address in LMC) including a SAE with a LARGE letter 1st class stamp on it and they will be swapped with our members and guests, on this occasion Age 14 and over may enter into the swap.
However if we get enough interest in 5-13 yrs wanting to do be involved we can organise a swap for them too...PLEASE email me at the address in the header above before sending them in and if we have enough young people wishing to take part we can make an ATC swap for that age group using the same theme.
Over the next week we will show more examples of what could be seen as ' Lets Face It ' ATC's but at the end of the day it is how you perceive it.
More information on the swap and free draw for those who take part will be posted here throughout the week, please keep popping back so as not to miss anything.
Most of all enjoy creating your tiny works of art and please scroll down to the next post and see our fab blog candy give away.
