ATC Trade

The South Bay Art Association (SBAA) organized an ATC (artists trading card) event at our monthly meeting. I did these cards by first using my Gelli plate to print papers and then doing designs on them in ink. There were about 25-30 people trading cards at the event.

For these I used a permanent ink.

For this one I used my Elegant Writer pen that bleeds.

Here are some of the treasures that I received in the trading.

I am down in Myrtle Beach attending a workshop on painting figures with Ted Nuttal. The workshop starts tomorrow. This may be one of the painting I work on.


  1. I like the gelli plate background combined with the ink sketches. You got a lot of really cool cards in the exchange too.

  2. Love the gelli plate pieces Joan! So pretty! The trading of cards is such a great idea! Great sketch too - will make a fantastic painting!
    Have enjoyed scrolling through your blog. Love the painting you did as a gift for your husband's nephew.

  3. Love everything you create Joan! I am out here checking out your blog! Keep them coming Buddy!

  4. Dear Joan these ATCs are super. Love your drawing that you may use in the workshop. Just know you will be enjoying every moment. Hugs!

  5. These are so pretty Joan! And the cards you received are wonderful as well :)

  6. Thanks so much everyone! I appreciate all your comments.
