So the crafting world has a new craze… Artist Trading coins! And of course I’m loving this new little canvas to art away on a mini round scale!
I made my first ones a couple of weeks ago (here is the post about them) and now find I am making more and more of them … just because! So I thought why not set up a Facebook swap group and see if others are interested in this too. Turns out I am not alone!
So the Artist Trading Coins UK swap group was born. The rules are make three coins each month to a theme (May’s theme is light and dark), send them to me with an SAE and I will send you three back from different artists. Sound like fun? If you fancy joining pop along to the group and ask to join!
So have I made mine for the month of May? Of course not… but here are some of the coins I have been making!
I added paint using a gelli plate and stencils to mountboard then cut them out using a die.
I then added doodling, stamping, splatters of paint and some black paint edging and then found some printed collage images and started layering them up.
Next I added sentiment and more doodling. Then I added Versamark and clear embossing over the whole coin and this gave it a fab finish.
I love how these came out…
