OK, I'm in. Have always struggled with imaginary stuff, so should be an interesting challenge.

Do you think this type of work qualifies for this project? I still have one day to delete it from the Novembre ATC project.

Re: Project Discussion: ATC-from imagination

Yes Anney, this lovely card would be right at home in the imagination ATC.

As I said in the November ATC, this new ATC-imagination is for flights of imagination, fantasy and abstraction.

Set your mind free.

The main thing is that this ATC project is not for copies of real life things (people, animals, nature) so that it is different to those ATC projects.

Now we can choose to put our cards in the thread that seems most appropriate for its genre.

Now I need to make some....

I'm in.
Don't often do abstract - but does collage count as imagination/abstract?

I'll keep this project in mind when I do something really different.

Re: Project Discussion: ATC-from imagination

Yes, codzoned, collage counts as imagination work...as long as the image doesn't primarily intend to copy reality.

i.e., the image should say something fantasy-related. Not just straight reporting.

Wacky is great!! Fanciful. Try something you've never considered before.

This is a great idea stumpy! With 90% of my art being created from my imagination and the other 10 % from (bad) photos I have taken, I will eventually make time to submit some more atc's here.
Thank you for taking the time and effort to start this up. BP

Glad to see you are in, Black Pearl, and look forward to your new ATCs.

Gotta get busy if I want to trade.

This is just brilliant Anney. I love it. Looking forward to trading you for it too!!

I love dragons and fairy stuff so the more of this the merrier!!

I've never done any of this kind of thing myself.

Re: Project Discussion: ATC-from imagination

Just a thought for card-makers...think collage, do something Monty-pythonish.

Or how about those mix-and-match animal story books???
i.e., head of lion, body of elephant, legs of giraffe, etc.....


They might be translatable into ATCs.

Re: Project Discussion: ATC-from imagination

Stumptailmonkey, thanks for creating this project. This has managed to inspire a couple of ideas in me. And the best thing about it is ... nothing has to look realistic. Whew. Hopefully more ideas will be rolling out shortly.

I admire this one. Its a wonderfully imaginative ATC.

Maygoblin, I find 'no-set-plan' works best for this type of card too!!
