My ATC Mixup 1 and ATC Mixup 2, each 9" x 12" and containing 9 images, are sized just right for making Artsit Trading Cards, but I've used them in a variety of ways, including bookmarks, gift-tags, greeting card covers, dangling ornaments, even refrigerator magnets!
These 18 images offer something for everyone.
The art sample below is destined to decorate the side of a white paper gift-bag. It's printed with Desert Blooms from ATC Mixup 1, on a background of glossy black cardstock that had first been spattered with metallic bronze and blue acrylic paints.
From the hint of desert above, it can be a quick easy trip to Antarctica --
Penguin, from ATC Mixup 2, was inspired by my original 6" x 6" mask Penguin Family, which looks like this:

Other ATC-sized designs of mine have been inspired by my earlier-released stencils and masks. Among them --
Above: Ornamental Iron Curls from ATC Mixup 2 was used to print the central image with red interference acrylic paint on glossy black cardstock. This design was inspired by my 6" x 6" mask Ornamental Iron Curls, which is shown below and which was used to create the print that serves as the background above. Glued together, they're now on the cover of a 6" x 6" greeting card.
Another way, of course, to combine the new ATC versions with their namesake originals, is to make one print using them both....
Above: the ATC-sized Mikki's Flowers mask from ATC Mixup 2 was printed on the same paper that I'd already printed with my 6" x 6" Mikki's Flowers mask, which also comes as a stencil:

Note: Altho the new ATC-sized masks and stencils resemble the older larger versions, they are not exact duplicates. In the case of Mikki's Flowers, for example, I changed the size, number and arrangement of the flowers.
Below are two prints made with ATC-sized Mikki's Flowers by itself. Both were printed atop flower photos from old picture calendar pages.
