June ATC Challenge – EYES

1 Jun


Are you ready for the June ATC challenge?   June is all about EYES.  The windows to our soul and to our heart. The way we see the world around us.




What will you do with the theme of EYES? Will you explore your own eyes? Somebody else’s eyes? A quote about eyes? Are maybe you’ll explore SEEING or BLINDNESS or CRYING or WINKING……A lot of options for you. I look forward to seeing what you do!

Will you draw or paint your eyes? Use photographs or magazine images?

What about animal eyes? Or mystical critters like my dragon eye? What do you see in those eyes?

 I look forward to SEEING what you send me. 🙂


I’ll be posting the May Mother Nature ATCs soon. Be sure to check back to see them and find out if you are a winner.

For those of you who want to work ahead, the July ATC challenge theme will be BIRDS! I know we have done this theme before but it was one of the more popular themes and I’m sure everyone will enjoy doing it again.



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 (if we get more than 20 entries, there will be 2 winners – if we get more than 30 entries, there will be 3 winners, and so on)
  • 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 one person will win all of them :))
  • you can’t win if you don’t enter 🙂
  • deadline is June 30th – 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 as well as people from all over the USA, and I know they would love it if they knew where you were from. We don’t all know each other personally, so the info you provide is greatly appreciated. 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 love this monthly challenge and I am always grateful to those of you who submit entries. Tell your friends too. The more the merrier for this challenge, as we have extra winners with more entries. And really, everyone is welcome to join the fun no matter what skill level you are at. 🙂 It is a great way to practice new stuff.


Have fun and I look forward to seeing your Mother Nature ATCs!!!!!!

    I have to hurry and make them quickly! I actually thought I missed a deadline for the Yeys ATCs, but I think I will be able to make them and send them on time. With painting the walls in our home, it will be a challenge but I will do it. I have to! 🙂
