Inspirational Phrases for ATCs and Mixed Media
Filed under: General, Creativity, Inspiration, Art Journal, Creative Every Day, ATCs
Posted by: Mary @ 1:30 pm

After some brainstorming this week, I came up with a list of inspirational phrases to use on ATCs and in other mixed media work. These words were randomly added to the ATC trades that I have been working on, using my gel pens. Adding inspirational words to an ATC or mixed media piece can give your art focus and another layer of interest. It is great fun to play with words and see what turn of phrase can evolve. Here are my inspirational phrases set into one of my art journals. Feel free to borrow a phrase or change it around to enhance your own work. You can also find many quotes on Bartleby.com.

Art Retreat ATC Trades

Here are the ATC trades (2.5″ x 3.5″ artist trading cards) I have been working on for Art Is… You, The East Coast Art Retreat. I painted different colored backgrounds with water color washes and then added a moon-like circle cut from scrapbooking paper with a 1″ paper punch. Next I will be adding inspirational words to each card using my gel pens. A simple, elegant, and fun way to express myself and leave a reminder after meeting new friends.
