"Hope" Atc Collage-

This was the first collaborative ATC project I did. About a year ago, I came up with the idea of creating an art piece for our church.  I wanted an activity that anyone could contribute to whether they considered themselves an artist or not. 

So this is the fun part, there are a few rules. The cards are 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, like a baseball card.  Usually, 2 artists would agree to trade either cards they have already finished, or to create cards and a specific theme and then exchange. For this, all the cards were organized into a frame together and displayed at our church.

The overall theme was HOPE. Some were done at a ladies overnighter, some in a kids sunday school class, and some independantly.  They are done in a variety of materials, scrapbook paper, watercolors, stickers, stamps, colored pencils, digital art...Some contain a word, poetry, scripture, quotes, lyrics, or just an image.  This frame holds 26 cards, and was about 12 inches by 18 inches. 

The individuality of each card is what makes it so interesting to look at. For the ATCS4ACC project, I would like to work with a theme of warrior/ survivor/Live. it is open to interperitation, but it should be positive, and appropriate for a family setting.
