View Full Version : Join us for the June 5 7 Collage-a-thon!

Pages : [1] 2

06-03-2009, 12:31 PM
Everyone is welcome!

Start time (in your time zone – start when your clock says 5:00 pm) June 5 at 5:00 pm
End time (in your time zone) June 7, 2009 - 11:59 pm

WHAT’S A COLLAGE-A-THON? It’s a marathon collage weekend done over the same day and time in each time zone. It’s kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies and collage ATC’s, and this thread is our play room.
It’s open to EVERYONE, and is open themed. The only requirement is that you have collaged somewhere on your ATC.

HOW IT WORKS: At 5:00 on June 5 (your time zone) you start to collage your ATC’s (prepping ahead of time is encouraged), then upload to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading ensues. At 11:59 on June 7 (your time zone) you’re done collaging… however you may continue to trade as long as you like.

OPTIONAL THEME & CHALLENGE: (key word is optional... do whatever floats your boat as long as it's collage)
THEME: Travel
CHALLENGE: Have three or more layers on your cards. (i.e. paint, collaged items, rubber stamps, embossing, inks, pens, colored pencils, pastels, beeswax, melted crayons…)
Sample 1 by HHC has vintage book page, paper napkin, soft gloss gel, white poster paint pen, blue & yellow glaze pens, ink tint on edge. That's five "layers"...
Sample 2 by sniisk, has three overlapping papers, quote label, postage stamps, diecut, tag, brad, button...

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a card you must have, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade. Please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread.

WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST? And you will… consider clicking the You Rock button and leave it there.

LOVE TO CHATTER? Please feel free to chat among yourselves, however we do request you back it up with LOTS of posts with cards.  It makes it hard for those with little time to play to easily find the eye candy and we want to make it as easy as possible for folks to trade.

NOTE: loading from your gallery is preferred by some of us because
(1) your art is larger to see for those with bad vision,
(2) we can look in your gallery to see everything that is available in one place
(3) it is easier to mark cards "traded" in your gallery once there are pages and pages of cards in this wonderful thread.

From your atcsforall.com gallery: It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
1) Go to your picture in your gallery & click the picture to bring up the page where people leave comments
2) Right click on the picture to bring up the menu
3) Click on properties at the bottom of the menu - this brings up another box with the info on your picture
4) Copy the Location. I think there is an actual Copy Image Location to click on, or highlight the "location" and copy (right click, click copy or Ctrl C)
5) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
6) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) into the window that pops up and and hit ok - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box
7) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/large/1_foxglove_fairy.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. I try to use medium ... find the word large or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

Can't wait! Still two days at work.

06-03-2009, 12:44 PM
I'm excited too! Should be fun times... :D

06-03-2009, 02:28 PM
Great theme and challenge for this one.

06-03-2009, 06:38 PM
I've subscribed to this thread so I won't forget. I'm trying to get some backgrounds done in advance so I'll be able to start collaging on Friday or Saturday. It's been several months since I was in a CAT.

06-03-2009, 09:54 PM
Looks like I'll be doing backgrounds tomorrow evening as well..........

06-04-2009, 12:16 AM
I still have some backgrounds left over from the melted crayon and gesso swaps that I can use plus I still have a stash of dyed paper towels to use. Hope that will help with finishing enough cards to swap.

06-04-2009, 12:21 AM
I have a variety of backgrounds left over from various projects, and I'm searching for travel images to have at the ready.

06-04-2009, 10:32 AM
Less than 24 hours...

06-04-2009, 02:34 PM
That's right, you will get to kick it off ahead of HHC and me.

06-04-2009, 02:39 PM
I can make cards with Poetboy. We are living in the same timezone. And the the UK people are joining us after two hours. But it will take soooo long before the east coast and finally the west coast can start. But, if Char is playing, she will start much earlier than me.

I think it's quite easy to communicate with all of you even when we are living so far away from each other.

06-04-2009, 02:46 PM
This will be my first anything-a-thon, and I'm excited to join you all!

Welcome Rogue Gal! So nice to get new players.

06-05-2009, 12:04 AM
It's getting close...

06-05-2009, 12:10 AM
Oh, I should totally be able to play in this, I have hubby home all the time now to help with the kiddos! I just have to get some commissions finished yet.

06-05-2009, 05:39 AM
Char, are you having extra holidays?

06-05-2009, 05:54 AM
yes Monday is a holiday..:D

06-05-2009, 06:40 AM
Not fair! I need to be working 7.30am on Monday. But I have an extra holiday on Friday, when I'm going to the UK artfest :).

Still two hours working...

06-05-2009, 06:54 AM
Amazing to think it is time for you guys to start soon...and it is not even 4 in the morning here! LOL.

06-05-2009, 07:00 AM
I am ready with only 10 hours to go! And it's raining cats and dogs here so my garden isn't calling me away from my ATCs!

06-05-2009, 07:03 AM
Hello - sniisk very kindly pointed me in this direction - I am fairly new to the forums - but may try to join in if no one minds - though I may not get much done!!

Woot! The fun has begun! :D Pretty cards, Char! I'm hoping to play, but I have a day at the office ahead of me first. I'll be popping in to see what everyone is doing.

06-05-2009, 09:07 AM
ok here is my last for the night.....

06-05-2009, 09:14 AM
Welcome Manxie. You may be surprised at how quickly you can work after you see all the great cards that are available during the CAT. HHC has written a great set of directions on how to post pictures to the thread (from your gallery or computer) that you may want to review before you get started if you don't already know how to do that.

Hello - sniisk very kindly pointed me in this direction - I am fairly new to the forums - but may try to join in if no one minds - though I may not get much done!!

06-05-2009, 09:15 AM
Great cards, Char!

06-05-2009, 09:30 AM
I agree and am so jealous of the other side of the world! Of course we'll get to play longer on Sunday but I am anxious to start!

06-05-2009, 09:53 AM
Good morning! Char, fabulous cards!

06-05-2009, 10:22 AM
Oh dear, oh dear, what to do???? Already burned my cooking this morning just while trying to catch up on the 2 pages of this thread already posted....and still have hours to go before it starts for me!
Got thrown off "husband's" computer, so have to go buy my own...but also got laid off from job so need to get on Craig's List to sell something to get money....but will still be back here because I am so greedy when I see all the great cards being posted, just gotta have some, gotta have some....oh dear, oh dear....Sniisk, why did you send me a notice of this "a-thon", you should know I just couldn't pass it by!!!

06-05-2009, 10:25 AM
I think I'll print some collage images for inspiration. And maybe some 'backs' for cards too!

06-05-2009, 11:01 AM
It's 6pm here and I have started to create something. Now I need to eat something or I won't eat anything before tomorrow morning :).

Good start Char!

06-05-2009, 12:15 PM
I just finished my first three cards and now Ill do the same as Sanna - eat something ;)

06-05-2009, 01:05 PM
Sue, you don't need to wait that it's 5 pm before you can ask for the trade. I'm sure everyone can find many beautiful cards from you gallery later today or tomorrow ;).

06-05-2009, 01:20 PM
If all goes according to plan, I'll be playing along with the rest of yous.
You all have started this CAT off with some beautiful art! I can't wait to get started. It's a little after noon here and I have a lot to do before I can begin collaging at 5. I shall return though.

06-05-2009, 01:46 PM
Wow, I go try to feel better and there are all these great cards by Evalila and Sniisk when I get back.

06-05-2009, 02:08 PM

06-05-2009, 03:00 PM
Beautiful cards, Char, Evalila and sniisk! Still recovering from a stomach flu here but hoping I'll be feeling well enough to play tomorrow.

06-05-2009, 03:16 PM
It was too busy day at work today and I feel very tired. It's not much ovet 10 pm here but I think that I need to go to sleep quite soon. But it's a new day tomorrow and much time to continue my card project. Can't wait to see all the cards made during the night when I wake up. I need to wake up early and then I maybe can talk a little bit before most of you are going to sleep :).

06-05-2009, 03:34 PM
Good night everyone! Make many beautiful cards when I'm sleeping. And good morning Char, I know you are waking up soon.

06-05-2009, 04:54 PM
Seven minutes and it's a go for those of us on the East Coast! Get your glue sticks ready!

06-05-2009, 05:05 PM
Okay, it's past 5:00 PM on the east coast already. Create, post and trade, folks! Not sure if I will post anything today, but I'm hoping to feel better and actually have cards to trade by tomorrow.

06-05-2009, 05:12 PM
good morning all..:D:D

06-05-2009, 06:22 PM
It is 20 minutes after 5 in Kansas and I have four in the process already. Various stages of doneness. I'm waiting on the first one to dry so I scan it and show you all my masterpieces! lol yeah right!

Good Morning, Char!

06-05-2009, 06:24 PM
O.K. got 8 cards to post....4 for CAT, 2 for swaps that I finished this afternoon before the 5 p.m. start time and 2 that were "half done" and finished. Need to let the glue dry and get a meal for my guys and will post later.

Good morning Char!

Just Ducky
06-05-2009, 06:48 PM

Just Ducky
06-05-2009, 06:55 PM
oh goodie... we got a couple new C.A.T.ers... welcome aboard Rouge Gal and Manxie
just grap glue. paint, paper and what ever and jump in... it's fun...

06-05-2009, 07:08 PM
well I have had my breakfast...just having a quick peek here..then i will quickly get dressed and start playing..:D:D

06-05-2009, 07:19 PM
Some very nice cards in this thread! You all are creating like wildfire tonight.

It's going to be a bit before the glue is dry enough to scan the fish and the cactus so you all will just have to wait on those. But I've got a zebra and some play time for you all. Shoot me off a PM if anyone is interested. I have another in the works as well, and will post it with the two I'm waiting on.

play time-- security envelope insides, an interactive dot to dot toy from a Cracker Jack box, a brass chevron from a uniform, Free Spin!, and gold plastic coin wiht a jester on it...all attached to a blank made from a Blue's Clue's Game Box

tradedZebras-- The scan is a bit blurry because of the depth. Security envelope insides, picture of a baby zebra, three chipboard circles painted black w/ sharpies, white sequin stars, micro beads and a chipboard word from a kids' Scrabble Game--sentences instead of letters! ... and again, all attached to a blank made from a Blue's Clue's Game box

06-05-2009, 07:28 PM
Okay... it's about 40 minutes until 5 here on the west coast of USA. I'm trying to clear a spot on my messy art table, gathering the images I clipped and backgrounds I have already done and getting a stack of envelopes.

Just a hint for the newer CAT folks, sometimes the trading gets fast and furious, so I keep a note pad by my computer to jot down the trades, and when I've finalized the trade, I pop the card in an envelope and write the persons user name on the inside flap. I can keep better track of what I've traded that way. I got this great idea from someone else, and I can't remember who. (If you're reading this, speak up and take credit!) It works for me. :D

06-05-2009, 07:30 PM
Fun cards especially the zebra. I like the idea of recycling the game boxes for the base too.

06-05-2009, 07:31 PM
My first four cards.http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/3438/medium/1_Undersea.jpg

06-05-2009, 07:37 PM
I love the Zebra card Donna..:)

06-05-2009, 08:01 PM
Thanks for the accolades on the zebra all! I wasn't real crazy about him myself...but that just goes to show I don't always know what I'm talkin about!

Game boxes make very sturdy bases for ATCs and Chunky pages.

I will have three more cards for you in a little while. I'm waiting on glue to dry.

I really like your undersea/crab card, sueatbwp. Very nice!

06-05-2009, 08:08 PM
Whoo hoo! It is 5 o'clock here, finally! I am going to try to get a few cards made before I have to go to work tonight!
Lots of beautiful cards out there!

06-05-2009, 08:10 PM
Wow--that crab is wonderful sueatbwp! As a cancer, I have always loved those creatures!

And that zebra, dmnh--SUPER!

06-05-2009, 08:42 PM
HEY! Again, I didn't know about this CAT!

Just got back from vacation and have been "jet-lagged" for a few days...

But, I have some cards in the works and will be posting soon!!

06-05-2009, 08:51 PM
The crab is actually a piece of jewelry from the Danbury Mint catelogue....of course I don't actually OWN it.

It is all attached to stiff card from the game I don't remember the name for too. I'ts sealed with acrylic glaze. Char has first dibs on this one.

dmnh--if you need Char's address, just ask me and I will share it with you....she's just pretending to live in Australia...she REALLY lives in Washington state!

06-05-2009, 10:03 PM
lol..hands off......:P:P

06-05-2009, 10:08 PM
LOL no fighting over the zebra ladies....not lady-like at all!

If you all are wanting zebras for this CAT, I can oblige. Just let me know you all want more zebras and I'll see what my herd has to offer when I work them over.
Right now, I have to go to my sister's house cause I've been summoned. I shall return though.
Char, the purple zebra is yours.

06-05-2009, 10:10 PM

people who don't do them- will never get it Sanna. Best to just let them wonder and continue to enjoy yourself!

Great cards here everyone. Might get some time later- but housecleaning is calling now- I have been ignoring it too long!

06-06-2009, 10:34 AM
Good morning! What a lot of gorgeous cards! I'm off to answer pms and will be back.:D

06-06-2009, 10:55 AM
Sniisk, loved your Mostly Purple I, and wonder about your brother "what is there to not get?"
Sounds like he might be a very "practical" person!

My grandson has asked me to post two of his cards he made for our local swaps when he was 6 and 7 years old....he just had a short visit to France and wants to get French/Paris travel cards. Anyone willing? He says to also say his favorite color is green.

Connor, "hard" has real candy piece. (scanned crooked, but card is straight!)
Connor, "metallic" has key that swivels to choose selection.

06-06-2009, 11:05 AM
My brother is just jealous because he can't walk and he see me enjoying just staying at one place and making cards. He said that I couldn't even notice if my leg was broken :). And it's true! I could still make ATCs :laugh:.

06-06-2009, 11:08 AM

sniisk--A babysitter? Marcie is my youngest! I just have other kids, a dog, a house, a yard, laundry, grocery shopping...I usually have to set aside a day or an evening to do atcs! I literally have to schedule it in to my week!

Maybe a home aid then :). It takes about half an hour to clean our house (just a little apartment) and I need to do laundry just once a week. Not too much time for them. More time to make ATCs. But We don't have children, yet.

But I'm working full time and usually can't do anything in the evenings after my 10 hours working days.

06-06-2009, 01:15 PM

Well, I tried making a couple yesterday...and wasn't at all happy with them. So, now I am home from work and am planning on some sleep. When I wake up, I will try again to get creative, before having to work again. Gotta get SOMETHING to come out decent so I can get in on these beautiful cards!

06-06-2009, 03:26 PM
I just want to say looking at all the lovely collaged cards makes me wish I could collage.

I have tried just don't have the eye for it.

Manxie, your cards are wonferful! There are instruction "how to add a picture" in the first post of this thread. But it's of course OK to upload the cards just to the gallery.

06-06-2009, 03:50 PM
The posts in your gallery look fine. Check the first post. HHC has directions on how to add pictures from your gallery into a post.

06-06-2009, 04:38 PM
adifferentstory, you don't need to use the theme. I have always thought that it is something you can use if you don't have any idea what to do.

06-06-2009, 04:55 PM
My intentions didn't go according to plan and instead of 2 hours gone, it has been many many more....and I've nothing to show you at the moment. I have three zebras drying though. I'm going to give the theme of travel a go next.
You all have produced some gorgeous artwork while I was asleep or otherwise occupied. I need to send out some PMs while the zebras are drying. Excellent work you all!

I'll be back with zebras in tow shortly.

Having a short break to do some mundane, boring things like washing and eating lunch - my next few cards are ready to assemble when I get back

06-07-2009, 12:24 AM
lovely cards jonquil....

06-07-2009, 12:26 AM
I spent the entire day in my art studio...not making ATCs but FINALLY starting to unpack some of my supplies. I begin to see the light and can barely wait to get going with some ATCs and CATs...heck, I'd be happy just having time to use my prismas on paper at this point.


06-07-2009, 12:44 AM
I'm waiting on two ATCs to finish drying so I can scan them. I should be back before too much time elapses.
You all are still creating masterpieces!!! My muse has taken a veer off into left field with the travel theme. One of them coming up and no more! I'm not sure where my muse has gone with the other two....off into the wild blue yonder I think!
I shall return with some things to look at soon.

06-07-2009, 12:47 AM
Well, My plans to make something went haywire. Had a bit of arguing here--so, took some benadryl before I went to sleep to be sure to sleep...and slept the day away! It is already nearly 10PM! I slept almost 10 hours! How in the world did that happen? LOL

So, I have about an hour before I have to get ready for work. Maybe I can get at least one card made--FINALLY!

Wish me luck!

You guys have made some AWESOME and BEAUTIFUL and oh, so TEMPTING cards! Send some of that motivation and talent over here to the West Coast when you have reached your time deadlines in the rest of the world!

06-07-2009, 01:13 AM
Good morning. So much has happened when I was sleeping. Need to send some PMs, get a breakfast and make some more cards.

06-07-2009, 01:14 AM
but we are 1 hour behind you I think :)

You are 2 hours behind. But it's not much compared to USA or Australia.

06-07-2009, 01:14 AM

Oh Sanna :unsure: I thought you made cards in your sleep..:D:D

06-07-2009, 01:33 AM
I was maybe dreaming about making cards but there wasn't anything ready when I woke up :unsure:.

06-07-2009, 01:38 AM
lol..I look forward to seeing your creations for today..:D

06-07-2009, 01:45 AM
This is all for me tonight. Three new ones and "Play Time" is still available too.

29 Cents- That's a 22k gold replica of a 29 cent US Stamp. It is in a little plastic holder attached to the card with paper strips. There is also some security envelope insides, sequin stars, brass doodads (not sure just what they are for originally), gold paper seal, length of gold ribbon, blue circle sequin, gold circle sequins, and a little gold doodad all attached to recycled food box. The glue wasn't quite dry when I scanned it but it will dry clear and you won't see it then.

Planes- security envelope insides, white paper, airplane cutout from a brochure and a plastic doodad that says 'planes'. It's attached to chipboard from a game I can't remember the name of.

tradedWhat About You?- magazine cutout, 2 different blue squares of cardstock, paper strip from the top of a bag of dog food dusted with blue glitter, blue and white mulberry papers, drywall screen tape, wooden dragonfly and clear sticker corner pcs. Its all attached to the same chipboard from the game I can't remember the name of too.

tradedPlay Time-

If you are interested in any of these, please shoot me off a PM. I'll be awake for a few more hours but you'll not be getting anymore cards from me tonight.
More to come tomorrow!

06-07-2009, 02:06 AM

we're trying to inspire you Sanna..:D:D

06-07-2009, 04:01 AM
I need some advice from those of you that use gel medium and pen in their collage. I've always used a sharpie when using pen and then adding a coat or two of gel medium. I recently bought some of the duel tip black (fine/ultra fine). I've just done some drawing and then added a coat of matt gel medium and the pen has smudged. What permanent pens do you use?

06-07-2009, 04:10 AM
Three more. Something totally different this time.

Wow, the background on the elephant is simply gorgeous--and the rhino ain't half bad either! LOL.
I am sitting here at work, and brought along some stamps and text pages...so, am making some things I can hopefully use to make some cards when I get home! For some reason, I always forget about stamping ON the text pages...and then wonder how to get that layered look! Hopefully some of mine will come out on paper, like they are in my head! LOL.

06-07-2009, 05:50 AM
I'm loving the elephant and rhino too.

I admire anyone who can stamp well. I have tons of stamps but rarely use them as I tend to mess up far more than are good LOL I really should practice more.

06-07-2009, 05:51 AM

O.K. Tam.....I think I understood what you said. My favorite saying is "Tomorrow begins Today!" at least I think that's what you said......

06-07-2009, 09:16 AM
LOL--sounds good to me!

Seems like, the cards made by the "West Coasters" on Sunday don't trade much, cause most of the rest of the world has moved on! At least, it seems that way.

Since I am planning to do the most of my cards today, I hope there is someone left to trade with!

Hence my crazy post to remind people not to forget us poor West Coast time laggers! LOL

06-07-2009, 09:18 AM
I, on the east coast, am done "creating" cards and am working in the garden creating beauty of another kind. But I promise to check in every so often. I don't think we've traded yet Tam and I will look forward to seeing what you make.

06-07-2009, 09:28 AM
It will still be 3 hours or so before I get home from work....and THEN I can start creating! We will see how many I can get done before the sleep monster takes over! LOL....But, even after I wake up, it will only be evening time, and I can make more after I am awake. So, I still have MANY more hours to try to create something of value!

06-07-2009, 09:34 AM
well tomorrow (Monday) is a public holiday in Aus...so i will be checking this thread tomorrow for sure...but now it is getting close to midnite..so I think it is time to get some zzzz's

06-07-2009, 09:34 AM
I'm late in joining the CAT - had to go to work unexpectedly. Anyway, I hope to get a few more cards done today before the fun is over.

06-07-2009, 10:45 AM
checking in from the garden....lovely cards as I've come to expect from you all! Can't wait to see Tamarantulas later today!

06-07-2009, 11:09 AM
I have been working all weekend and then had two date nights in a row with my handsome husband ... (dinner and a movie or CAT? ... massage or CAT? ... ) okay ... I gave in to the love of my life and spent the time with him! Now I'm off to work again in an hour and am hoping to maybe get to make a couple cards when I get home tonight ... I also have a faerie-arium ("fairy under glass") that I have to make by Wednesday that I haven't started ... It would be nice to be independently wealthy and just get to stay home and play with my art ... (but then again, how boring would that be?! Lack of human interaction would eventually get to me) ANYWAY!!! I'm rambling!! I could have made a damn card by now!!! I had prepared some backgrounds for this weekend ... what am I doing?! To the bat cave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

06-07-2009, 11:15 AM
I'd choose date night over CAT anytime! Relax, this is supposed to be fun - not pressure.

06-07-2009, 11:22 AM
I would choose the date too!
Just uploaded to my gallery - thanks for looking everyone.

06-07-2009, 12:11 PM
I have a couple left in my gallery if anyone wants to trade. I'm not sure if i'll get anymore done tonight as I feel pretty crook right now.

It would be nice to be independently wealthy and just get to stay home and play with my art ... (but then again, how boring would that be?! Lack of human interaction would eventually get to me)

I had to give up work because of my disabilities. I'm housebound now if no one can take me out so I have very little real life human contact. Apart from my husband, son and mum. I think when you don't or can't work you find other things to compensate with it such as my art, jewellery making and online friends. Without these I think life wouldn't bear thinking about.

06-07-2009, 12:20 PM
