Song Lyric ATCs

I'm not sure how January zipped by so quickly! Here are some Artist Trading Cards that I made for the Milwaukee ATC group's January theme "Song Lyrics."

For some, the backgrounds were "serendipity collage" made with torn vintage song sheets, colorful origami and scrapbook paper glued randomly to a background card and stenciled & stamped with chalk inks. Others used the ATC-sized "Grungy Bingo Cards" from Ten Two Studios. The vintage photos are from the new Homespun Hearts collage sheet. They all have such solemn expressions, don't they? :D

Hi, I'm so excited to have found your blog. Reference two ten studio. I live in Plymouth, WI and I do not know a soul in my area north of Milwaukee that is an artist of our kind. I do Collage, altered art and much more that I dabble at. I'm a self taught artist sort of speaking Ha HA anyway I try. I would love to connect with you sometime. Your art work is beautiful. Smiles, Carol Mae

Hi Carol Mae: Thanks for stopping by! Our upcoming Milwaukee ATC meeting info is here if you ever want to drive down.
Have you checked what's going on at the Kohler Art Center in Sheboygan or the Cedarburg Cultural Center? Also the Assemblage Studio in DePere!

Wow, Carolyn - fantastic cards - I love how you combined Beatles lyrics with Victorian images! Only you could do that, you know. :D I'm VERY sorry I missed the meeting, but I can't wait for February! :D

Oh, and Carol Mae? I live in Fond du Lac! :D There are a lot of artists such as yourself up our way. In fact, I just passed through Plymouth yesterday on my way to an estate sale in Sheboygan. So take heart in knowing that are many of us north of Milwaukee. :D I would HIGHLY recommend coming to a Milwaukee ATC meeting sometime - it's so much fun and Carolyn is a great leader!

Carolyn, these are awesome! Now the old song "It's my party" is in my mind. I'll be humming it all day! Love that bingo card! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Thanks, Mel & Terri - and I apologize to Terri for any earworms (but not Mel because her ATCs get earworms stuck in my head all the time :D)
