May ATC Challenge!

I’ve decided that I want to challenge myself to make a piece of art each day in May. While I am working on my junk journals and other projects, sometimes you just need to feel a sense of accomplishment. ATCs, or Artist Trading Cards, are a great way to acheive that!

They are the same size as a playing card, so 2.5″ x 3.5″ and you can do one side, or both. Whatever way makes you happy! They are easy to complete in a reasonable amount of time, and then they can be swapped with other artists, or kept and used in other art, or just admired on their own!

To that end, I came up with my own list of prompts. That being said, the art doesn’t have to be related to the prompt – its just a good way to get started. If you want to join in, please do! Feel free to share it around as well – use #ATCmay18 as your hashtag so we can all see what amazing things you are doing.


Here’s the list of the days:

  1. Night
  2. Ocean
  3. Colonial
  4. Time
  5. Magic
  6. Believe
  7. Waterfall
  8. Castle
  9. Purple
  10. Hot
  11. Comfort
  12. Dream
  13. Space
  14. Love
  15. Steampunk
  16. Dark
  17. Blue Skies
  18. Forest
  19. Cool
  20. Bloom
  21. Mountain
  22. Together
  23. Grow
  24. Holiday
  25. Create
  26. Explore
  27. Red, White, & Blue
  28. In Memoriam
  29. Camp
  30. Tower
  31. Flow

If anyone is interested in swapping ATCs, please leave a comment on this post and we’ll see what we can come up with! It would be great fun!
