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 have 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 have (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 are tiny Works of handmade Art that you can swap / trade with other Artists and collect . . . they just have a different Shape and Size . . . they are circle shaped (hence Coin) and 2.5 Inch in Diameter . . . and that is 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 is the Limit. So . . . are you ready?!?

And here is 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 . . .
