Overview

Create and swap mini works of art!

The simple act of sharing 2½ x 3½ pieces of art, known as Artist Trading Cards, knows no boundaries and brings like-souls together like no other form of communication can. Unique statements, passionate emotions and favorite interests can all be expressed in these miniature works of art that are always traded, never sold.

Artist Trading Cards Workshop will not only teach you how to create your own cards, combining one or more of the 25+ techniques demonstrated in step-by-step photos, it will also share the ins and outs of trading, finding and organizing card swaps and how to trade with others across the miles or even the continents.

Discover ways to create colorful collage backgrounds, make cards from fabric, incorporate painting, stamping, phone book pages, tissue paper, string, stencils and much more—all is revealed in step-by-step photos, but that's not all. You'll also:

  • Learn the ins and outs of trading—where to look, what to swap.
  • Find creative ways to store the cards you'll soon be collecting.
  • Be inspired by the cards from 60 talented contributors and over 200 beautiful cards.

I gave this book to a friend as a gift and she loves it. She has been active in a guild making Artist Trading cards for years and still found this book has a lot to offer.
