Sneak peek - new handmade artists cards!

These miniature collage pieces have been in the making for a long time. They incorporate digital media as well as 3D embellishments (pendants, brads, fabric flowers, crystals and stickers.) They also include found anonymous quotes which centre around the theme of stillness and silence.
I must say, they are SO much fun to create and highly addictive! I can see myself cutting, glueing,  sticking and sewing to all hours of the night!!! – a total escape from my 'real' job. What I didn't realise is that just as much time goes into making these miniatures as it does with larger pieces. The artist's style, design and use of colour are all still contained, except in a much smaller format.

And these art cards are small !!! – 2.5" x 3.5" (6.4 cm x 8.9 cm) – no bigger than a playing card. This is the standard size of an ATC (artist trading card), sometimes also referred to as an ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals). And yes, these cards are sold or traded all over the world - by artists, enthusiasts and collectors. This may just turn into a lifelong pursuit for me!

These can be found in my Etsy shop under the section ATCs.
