100 Days Project

CJ: 100 days of ATCs

I am going to create an ATC (Artist Trading Card - 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm)) for every day of the project. These will be completed by utilising papers, offcuts, scraps and ephemera I have already bought or made. I will also endeavour to use products throughout the 100 days, that I have bought but never used. I'm trying to make use of the bits and bobs that I already have rather than buying new.
Each day I will create an ATC about whatever inspires me from the mixed media I am using. It may have a meaning to the day, or just be something that I like the look of from the papers, rubber stamps, ephemera etc that I pick.

Day 1:

Mid Winter Christmas

Today we had a mid winter Christmas at work so I used that as my theme for the day. I found it really hard to do utilising the bits and bobs from my box. I wasn't inspired. I wanted to pull all my stuff out and make it, but the point of this project is to use the offcuts and bits I already have sitting there.

The ATC was hard to photograph to show it off properly as I'd covered it with a fine glitter mesh, but it looks like black spots in parts on the photo. The background is a rubber stamp that was coloured in with markers. The 'flower' was a previously stamped and embossed offcut.
