Happy Mix-Ability day! How fun to celebrate our 200th challenge together. That's something to be thankful for!
It's a great time of year for mass production... it's time to start stocking up on tags and gift cards for the holidays! Artist Trading Cards or ATCs are a great multi-purpose size, and they're easy to create in bulk. By starting with a full sheet background, all the work is done at once, but each card will be unique. Here's how to do it:
My challenge is to create a full 8-1/2" x 11" background - you can collage, brush, splash or brayer paint, stamp, sponge, gel print, decoupage, or whatever you wish - just make sure you can cut through all the layers when you're done. When you finish, cut the sheet into 10 trading cards, following this template:
Embellish as you like! Remember, for your project to truly qualify as mixed media, you need to use at least 2 different types of art media. You can click HERE for a list of supplies you could choose from.
Please remember to put in the correct keyword (MIX200) when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos. Then come back to this thread and paste a link to the card in your gallery so we can all ooh and ahhh! Go forth and create!
