Yesterday, I did a quick stop at my local art store, and found this new rack of Strathmore Artist Trading card blanks. Artist Trading Cards (ATC's) are minature (2.5" x 3.5") artworks that people create and trade with other ATC artists. ATC's are not meant to be sold, but ACEO's are. (Art Cards Editions and Originals)
While I personally don't participate in the ATC/ACEO movement, I just couldn't pass up these tiny packages of paper. They came in Smooth Bristol. Bristol Vellum, Acrylic, Textured, Watercolor. Illustration Board, Textured and Canvas Paper. I decided to be a big spender and pick up one of the Assorted Packs for $2.49. If nothing else, it's a great way to sample the different papers that Strathmore has to offer.
You can buy them online here. And here is a link to the Strathmore Great Holiday ATC Swap.
