2018-05-26; Craft day with Maggi — ATC; Artist Trading Coins


One day this past week I had my friend Maggi over for lunch and a craft afternoon. This is one of the projects that we tried…an ATC. Not an artist trading card this time but an artist trading coin. Working in the round format was interesting!

I kept the size to 2.5″ so that if whoever receives these wanted to put them into a pocket sleeve, it would fit. Here are Maggi’s samples:

On my 1st coin, I collaged found items from a craft magazine that my friend Chrissy gave me.

On my 2nd coin I tried sponging, stenciling and stamping.

On the back of my coins I added this hand painted edging, my name and the title.

    What a great idea! I haven’t done ATCs for a while and love this spin! You are so lucky to be able to get together w/Maggi – I’ve “known” her for many years from some Asian stamps lists we’ve been on together!

    I just found you through a Google search of artist trading coins. I love yours. I’m in the UK and only made one thus far

      Oops… but plan to make lots more. I think these may have started in the US…?
      Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I had never heard of them before. They were fun to make but thinking of what to put on the back was the hard part for me 🙂
