My Very First Postage Stamp Athon


On the weekend I was introduced to a wonderful concept known as a A-thon which is where you make ATC's or other tradable Mail Art to a set theme or style.  It runs for a set period of time during which people come and go when they have spare creative time, make items and trade with others.

The past weekend I joined in what is known as a Postage Stamp A-thon where you create ATC's using/around Postage Stamps.  You can make people, using a stamp with a face and then collage/paint/draw their bodies etc, or you can simply create a scene to tie in with your stamp.

Here are some that I made and traded for others over the weekend.  I am finding these so enjoyable and relatively quick and easy to make.


  
Some of these cards are on their way to the US whilst others are making their way to Finland and the Netherlands.  There were a number of participants over the weekend all of whom had so many different ideas and techniques to share,  Everyone was so friendly and it really was an inspiring event.  I look forward to participating in more of these in the New Year.

Here also is a couple of normal ATC's I made in the last few days aswell.
