About Me

From School Teaching to Art and Craft Representative I have learned that I love to teach Art & Craft and see the joy that discovering their creativity brings to people's faces. I live in Queensland Australia & love the laid back lifestyle and the crazy Aussie sense of humour.

I share my art and craft adventures, products and knowledge on my blogs creativedoodlingwithjudy.blogspot.com & celticknotswithjudy.blogspot.com

My favourite trend? Teaching those who think they have no artistic or creative ability to discover they have.

ATC ONLINE SWAP 1 - Radiating Lines

ATC Online Swap 1
Radiating Lines

I have decided to add a fortnightly ATC Online Swap on the alternate week to the Celtic Challenge. 

Trading Card Size
An Artist Trading Card is 2.5" x 3.5" or 64mm x 89mm.

I was involved in a ATC Swap recently and although I enjoyed getting everyones lovely artwork it cost me $45 to send out the ATC's to the people involved. Being on a pension, I cannot afford that on a regular basis, but would love to be involved in swapping. 

How to swap.
I propose to set up the opportunity for people to email their finished work to me. I will post it onto my blog so that others can admire it, and copy it, if they wish. Do not send anything if you are not prepared for others to copy and paste to their computer to print out for themselves.

Name you ATC's
Please ensure you put your name in the email so that other will know who did the artwork. You can also put where in the world you are from as an added interest if you wish.

ATC Swap Times
Today is Friday 7th June. You will have until the 20th June to send me your work for this swap. I will load it onto this post as I receive it, for others to view and copy. To have it posted you need to send it to atcswapwithjudy@gmail.com

Please send your design in jpeg or png format as I am no expert is using different formats and find these easy to upload to blogger.

The theme of this ATC Swap will be 'Radiating Lines'.

Draw lines radiating out from any point on the card you wish, and then decorate. You can do it in one or multiple colours.

This card I sent in the recent swap. 

You can use my outline and decorate it differently or come up with your own 'radiating line' design to send.
