Monthly ATC Challenge for September

1 Sep

Are you all ready for the September monthly ATC challenge? I will post the pics of ATCs for August in a few days. There were some that were mailed in that I haven’t yet received, and since it is a holiday weekend here, I will wait until after the holiday to do that post. But that doesn’t mean we can’t start in with the September challenge.

School Challenge

A few of you sent in both August and September together, so that is fabulous, as I already have a few for this month in hand! The September challenge is SCHOOL. Since it is back to school for many people this time of year, I thought it might be a fun theme. You can interpret it any way you like and use any medium you like. For those who don’t know – ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. An ATC is 2.5″ x 3.5″, and is just a tiny work of art that you create. These are always traded or given away. You should put your name and the title of your card and the date on the back, and any other information you think is needed. The front is for your art. There are many kids of ATCs, using paper, fabric, metal, clay, etc. All mediums are acceptable. Here and here are some samples for you to look at. Here are the ones submitted last month.

So your theme for September is SCHOOL. You only have to create one ATC for this challenge. All skill levels are welcome to join in the fun (last month we had some young children who participated). Please have your ATC submitted to me by the end of the month 9/30/12. You can drop them off at my place, or mail them to me (the address is at the bottom of the page). This is a WTA – Winner Take All – challenge. Everybody who sends an ATC receives one chance to win. If you send more than one ATC to me, you get an extra chance for each one. I will use to select a winner. The winner will receive ALL of the ATCs submitted to me. Please feel free to invite your friends and family to participate as well. The more the merrier, right?

October theme will be PINK – in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So start thinking about what you would like to create for the theme PINK.
