Leaves are Falling ATC 0008

I recently purchased a book from Jerry's Artarama on how to create artist trading cards (ATCs) and the different mediums and methods for doing so. The book is titled "artist Trading card workshop" by Bernie Berlin. This book is beautifully illustrated, has easy to understand directions with illustrations, and also provides a section on how to make ATC storage ideas.

This book has 128 pages with 250 full color illustrations. Bernie Berlin is a world renowned ATC artist and his ATCs are the rage among all types of creatives. Readers can peruse a spectrum of techniques such as collage, painting, metal working, stamping, and more for making these types of cards as well as albums for storing them. The book also has sections including Ultra-Cards, how-to for Collecting and swapping cards, as well as a gallery of ATCs done by Bernie Berlin and other ATC artists.

My "Leaves are Falling ATC 0008" was done using a technique from the book called "Painting on Paper Towel".

Materials Used:
Watercolor 90 lb Paper
Paper Towel
Scrapbook Paper
Modge Podge
Printed out saying

To keep up with my most recent ATCs you can visit me at Mixed Media Workshops or ATCs for All!
