Arts in the Cards was a godsend for me. It allowed me to be creative in a different way than writing and to be a part of a group since I spend most of my days the last five months alone in front of my computer. The last challenge was Reduce, Recycle, Reuse. Here are my ATCs (artist trading cards, 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches). Enjoy!
Every project allows us to learn something about ourselves. When I got out my box of saved items, I began to see a theme to my obsessions.
Here is a list of items used:
Tissue paper, Trick or Treat bag, dye catcher cloth, envelope, catalog pieces. Korean dog treat label and a part from a gift bag
Spice flier, postcard, Starbucks coffee sleeve, dye catcher cloth, gift bag and a stamp
Atlas page (sent to me as gift wrap), tissue paper, postcard piece, flash card, apricot label (plastic), Trick or Treat bag, stamp and catalog piece
Tissue paper, Trick or Treat bag, JC Penny's shopping bag and catalog parts
Atlas page, wrapping paper, ribbon, airline menu, candy wrapper, envelope part and a stamp
Atlas page, ribbon, airline menu, candy wrapper, gift box part and a stamp
Dye catchers cloth, postcard, placemat, flash card and the inside of an envelope
Trick or Treat bag, tissue paper, envelopes, dye catcher cloth, Korean dog treat label and a part of a placemat

I think I was successful with recycling and reusing. Didn't reduce my box of saved treasures by much, but I sure had fun.
