Addicted to ATCs

By: Chris Herrmann, Artistic Guide

Okay, now my secret is out. I am an ATC addict. Wow, now I feel much better! Seriously, I really looooove creating ATCs, so you can imagine my happiness when I discovered  a fantastic book all about making them. The book is called Artist Trading Card Workshop by Bernie Berlin. If you are into making ATCs, this is the book for you.  The book goes into the history of ATCs, then moves on to the creating using things like dimensional resin to watercolors. I really enjoyed working with this book and I tried just about every project. Here is one I particularly enjoyed and I hope you do too.
