Autumn & Halloween Artist Trading Coins

what are artist trading coins and how to make them

So – you know that I love to dip my Toes into new Things all the Time – and when I stumbled across Artist Trading Coins on Instagram they instantly caught my Attention – because a) I love small Crafty Projects (not always but every now and then to spice it up) and b) you know that I love everything “swappable” and “mailable” (Pocketletters? Artist Trading Cards? Flipbooks? Inchies? You name it – I’ve probably done it … ) … so … I tried my Hands on some cute little Artist Trading Coins and picked a Halloween & Autumn Theme for them … you can watch the Process in the following Video if you like ….

But first of all some Basic Info if you’ve (like me) been living under a Rock for the past Months and have never heard of Artist Trading Coins … so … what are Artist Trading Coins and how do you make them?!? Basically they’re very similar to Artist Trading Cards – they’re tiny Works of handmade Art that you can swap / trade with other Artists and collect … they just have a different Shape and Size … they’re circle shaped (hence Coin) and 2.5 Inch in Diameter … and that’s actually all you need to know – other than those Specifications – you can go wild and crazy with Paper, Paint, Ink, Stamps, Embellies, Texture … the Sky’s the Limit … so … are you ready?!?

 

And here’s a closer Look at the Results … I definitely had lots of fun making them and I am pretty sure that those will be the first ones I made but definitely not the last ones …
