Monthly ATC Challenge – Dance

1 Jan


Welcome to a new year. There is something about starting a new year that inspires us and invigorates us! I love it!

And welcome to a new monthly ATC challenge as well. The December challenge didn’t get a lot of participants, which was to be expected with the holidays and all. I will be announcing the winner in a few days, of the Dec challenge – TIME – and sharing photos of all the participants. Perhaps there will still be a couple more ATCs in the mail this week. 🙂

The January ATC challenge is DANCE. Dance into the New Year! Sounds fun doesn’t it?

ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. A little bitty piece of art created by you. Here are the rules guidelines for the challenge.

  • your ATC needs to be 2.5″ x 3.5″
  • you can use any medium you like (paper, fabric, metal, clay, etc)
  • you can use any technique you like (a great way to try something new)
  • art work is on the front
  • your personal info is on the back (name, location, contact info, date, title)
  • all skill levels welcome
  • this is a WTA – winner take all – so one person will ‘win’ all of the ATCs submitted
  • submit one ATC (you get one chance to win with each ATC submitted – if you submit more than one you get extra chances – but make them different since once person will win all of them)
  • you can’t win if you don’t enter 🙂
  • deadline is Jan 31st – you can drop it off if you are local or mail it to the address below

I’d like it if you could include your city, state and country on the back side of your ATC. We have several Int’l participants and I know they would love it if they knew where you were from (if they win the ATCs). Another idea is to include your email or blog address as well. It’s not necessary, but nice for the winner to have in case they would like to contact you.

I hope you will join the fun of the monthly ATC challenge. It is a great opportunity to try something new and play with  mixed media techniques. You only need to make one ATC, so it is really easy to complete. Get your friends to join the fun too. The more the merrier.

So the Jan theme is DANCE and I know there will be a lot of great entries for this theme. For those of you who like to plan ahead, the Feb theme is HEARTS. I know it seems a bit predictable for Feb and Valentines Day, but a lot of people like working with hearts as a theme. Have fun!

    I am sorry I didn’t manage to participate in December ATC swap, but hopefully that will improve. 🙂 I like the themes you give us. Very inspiring. I must start making my ATCs fast! xo!

      No worries. You will do them when you have time. I also thought giving 2 months worth of topics at a time was good for those of you who are Intl, so you could send two at once (save on postage and also the timing of the mail service :)).
