Hey hey good people Tamiko here! I am an avid Instagram user! I have truly enjoyed seeing artist trading coins, which is a very similar to the artist trading cards (ATCs), but circular!! The concept is new to me! The inspiration is endless! If you already make ATCs you know you can use pretty much anything you like a substrate/base for it and well the same applies to artist trading coins!! Check these out!!
- Helmar's Super Tac Eva Glue
- gelli prints or scrap papers
- Circle stencil/compass/punch or jar
Luckily I had recently purchased stencil to create circles. I find that is the easiest way for me. So I drew circles with the stencil and pencils. I chose to create 12, although I am sure I cut out much more then that! (smile) I then used Super Tac glue to the circles and adhered them to patterned papers or gelli printed papers from my stash.
Once they were all dry I again cut circles and used the Super Tac Glue to add embellishments and text! Voila!! I think they came out very cute for my first time, don't you!! Make some and let's trade!!! (smile)
