ATC CARDS




It seems I am running out of things to paint on! I found these heavyweight ATC cards in my art supplies the other day and decided to paint a few. They are fun to work on. I have never really collected these, but they are a really cute way to collect art. How do people display them? I'd love to hear some ideas. They are 2.5"X3.5"--I will be putting them on Ebay soon. I just ordered a bunch of canvas panels from Dick Blick, so I should be set soon. I haven't been able to find a good source for the stretched canvases. I usually get them from Cheap Joe's online but they haven't had a sale lately. None of the stores around here carry very much selection of the the smaller sizes. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Those are all so cute! I have a few ACEOs and didn't know how to display them until I came across a mat for ACEOs that fits in a 5x7 frame. It made it way easier for me to display them as I was having horrible trouble finding frames!

I love these and have thought many times about collecting them. Yours are fabulous. I sure could use a good source for canvas, quality ones for a good price.
Blessings to you and I'll check out your auction. Let us know when they are on.

Hi Cris. Your ACEO's are cute. I have a few, that I have collected. I think they are great for the office or cubicle. They have these wires that have clips that can be strewn across a cubicle or wall that hold about 4 pictures. That would be a good idea.

for canvas, I alternate between canvasplace.com, dickblick.com (their own house brand canvas, the others aren't cheap), and the twice-yearly penny sale at aaron bros. canvasplace is my fall back when no one is running a good sale; superior quality, and I've talked him out of shipping costs before.

Lovely folk art!

Love the atc's they are so cute!
I display mine in sets of four in a frame and make my own mat/aperture for them.
