Found Poetry Artist Trading Cards

Found Poetry Artist Trading Cards (ATCs)
Found Poetry Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are the artistic blending of ATCs and the random expression of found poetry. When combined, these two art forms result in funny, imaginative, and quirky ATCs.

In Found Poetry ATCs, we’ll

  • create inspired phrases from randomly chosen words
  • create polymer “paper” using liquid polymer clay
  • embed the phrases, add color and images to the polymer “paper”
  • attach the polymer “paper” to a substrate, and
  • add additional embellishments for a truly inspired artist trading card
