View Full Version : Come Play in our “All-Types-of-Art” a-Thon Weekend!

Pages : [1] 2 3

It’s a Party! And it’s open to Everyone!

Especially those of us who were unable to be in Indy for the AFA gathering this weekend, or missed the UK Artfest last weekend.

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm on Friday June 19, and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm June 21, 2009. Or whenever we decide to stop playing.

It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art 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 this thread is our play room.

This weekend we will :
1) Create art: ATC’s, chunky pages, inchies, twinchies, charms, skinny pages, journal pages, rollos, gothic arches, post cards... (what am I forgetting?)
2) Trade art - if you wish.
3) Trade goody bags… just fill a bag with some fun arty things or ephemera, and post your offer and see who wants to trade. (posting pictures of the contents is optional)
4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
5) Wearing tiaras and drinking wine/baileys/beer/cocktails is totally optional. LOL!

Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE, and it is open themed. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

HOW IT WORKS: At 12:00 noon on June 19 (your time zone) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading and chatting ensues. At 11:59 on June 21 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to trade as long as you like. Well, and if we want to keep playing… ;)

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art or goody bag 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. It can get way too confusing.

Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!

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

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 gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) 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)
5) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/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 small or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

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 your art "traded" in your gallery once there are pages and pages of cards in this wonderful thread.

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.

From a flickr or photobucket account:

If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me or post your questions to the thread. We have a lot of experienced art-a-thoners who are more than willing to help those of you new to this craziness. :D

Are you ready? LET’S START THIS PARTY! 28046

Whoo Hoo HHC! Will be checking in and saying hi!

06-17-2009, 11:10 AM
I wish I'm here on Sunday afternoon :).

06-17-2009, 11:16 AM
Thanks HHC :)

06-17-2009, 11:29 AM
So glad we are starting at 12 noon on Friday (instead of 5 pm)!

06-17-2009, 12:01 PM
Well I made a bunch of backgrounds yesterday, cut out a bunch of mona lisa stuff, and right now I'm rubbing off the backs on some tape transfer I did with scotch tape over rows of music notes. I don't know what I'll do this weekend but I've been busy!

06-17-2009, 12:25 PM
I thought an early start was warranted. :D

06-17-2009, 02:31 PM
I hope I have time to get some art done but I will be checking in to see what you all are up to!

06-17-2009, 02:42 PM
I have a holiday on Friday and can start at 12! But, I can't upload any pictures until on Sunday :(.

06-17-2009, 02:48 PM
See you at 12 then Sniisk! This will be great fun, I'm looking forward to it. :D

06-17-2009, 02:51 PM
Can not wait to come here and see all the wonderful art that will be made.Would love to join in but not sure I will have the time over the weekend.I will be back to check out the art works though.

06-17-2009, 02:54 PM
If our mobile phones work well in the middle of the forrest, I can read the thread but if not, then I'll be back on Sunday.

06-17-2009, 04:19 PM
wheee! Can't wait until noon on Friday!

06-17-2009, 04:27 PM
I am checking in - ready to party - only 29 and a bit hours to go for me

06-17-2009, 04:28 PM
So glad we are starting at 12 noon on Friday (instead of 5 pm)!

I will be getting ready for work at this time & not home til 10pm when i will prob be too shattered to even think bout creating art, but i will be able to join on Sat evening & all day Sunday.
WooHoo !!! I can't wait. x

06-17-2009, 04:55 PM
Checking in.. Don't know how much work I'll get done for the weekend (I have a meeting of Creative Artists that will take up most of Saturday), but I will do the best I can. My tiara is all shined up, my pencils all sharpened and my brushes all clean and on the ready, so we'll see...

06-17-2009, 05:54 PM
This is going to be fun!

06-17-2009, 05:59 PM
This is my first "a-thon" but I'm going to give it a whirl. LOL - I'm not very fast at creating so I don't know how much I'll get done but I'll give it my best shot.

06-17-2009, 06:19 PM
I promised myself I am NOT going to play till I meet previous obligations--so, tomorrow is catch-up day....then, I will be READY TO PLAY on Friday! That is my plan..and I am sticking to it! LOL

Rain Pebble
06-17-2009, 06:58 PM
i'll play for sure. it sounds like something id really enjoy.

06-17-2009, 07:47 PM
glad to see some new faces - welcome to the party

06-17-2009, 07:59 PM
I'm getting ready tonight! Last night I cleaned out my "throw it in the draw you might want it sometime..." drawer and now I'm ready to go. Just need to make some backgrounds......let's see....gesso? torn paper? peeling paint? masking tape?......

06-17-2009, 08:24 PM
sueatbwp, use all of the above! LOL!

06-17-2009, 08:26 PM
I'm re-working my tiara. I'm going to a solstice party Saturday evening, and want to wear it there also. Can't get the flowers to stay the way I wanted them... What to do, what to do!

06-17-2009, 10:14 PM
Solstice Party???????? I wanna go I wanna go!!!

We'll just do one here ... :O)

Just Ducky
06-18-2009, 01:49 AM
well that's it.... now Ducky is really quacked... he wants a tiara like Helen... but he won't take that darn flying hat off... stupid duck...
I will slip some of Jeans baileys in his pool tonight .... he will be in good shape by Friday high noon... it's PARty Time... with some creating on the side...

06-18-2009, 06:59 AM
I am hoping to join the party too :D
I will still be at work Friday 12 noon - but I can read & reply to thread - just can't create til I get home :(
I have done some sorting though - I have made up some goody bags - all quite small items cos of postage costs - so hope they will be OK, and prepped some ATC background sheets as well as sorting out a nice pile of blanks. I learned from the last CAT - get envies ready too!! I think it was Chardonnay1965's tip - so thanks!

06-18-2009, 07:12 AM
Is it Friday yet???????

06-18-2009, 10:50 AM
Ducky Dear, the art starts tomorrow.....Start the Bailey's today. Be prepared.

06-18-2009, 10:56 AM
I think i'll definetely play a little this weekend with you all!

06-18-2009, 12:12 PM
Have I told you all how much I enjoy you? :D

06-18-2009, 12:43 PM
Ooh ... less than 24 hours to go, here.
I don't have a tiara, but I do have ideas :idea:

06-18-2009, 01:02 PM
I have a plain white paper crown I could decorate, but that is time I could be doing other art, so maybe I'll just wear a bunch a beads or something to feel festive.

I have done a lot of work on my gallery this week deleting things and making room for the new. I have a thread in my signature for an ATC Clearance that is going well at getting new homes for some of cards. Also I don't know if any of you have noticed the new thread I set up in the forum... PIF: MMH With 2 Hand Drawn Portrait Twinchies (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=10513)

06-18-2009, 01:54 PM
I will be around to watch this All-Types-of-Art a thon but don't think I can stitch fast enough to play the trading part.

Make and post lots of art ladies and gents so I have lots of eye candy to look at while resting my eyes from stitching.

06-18-2009, 02:00 PM
xstitcher I know cross stitching takes a looong time I used to do it to. Could you get some cross stitch paper and maybe just do little sayings in cross stitch? I was just thinking that might be faster nd allow you to make some things for trades.

I know they used to have perferated "paper" to cross stich on, it was stiff and didn't need hemming on the edges.

06-18-2009, 02:01 PM
Only 25 more hours to go!

06-18-2009, 02:02 PM
Now where did I put my tiara.... :unsure:

06-18-2009, 04:24 PM
It is 6.22 am on Friday so I only have a few hours to wait - won't be able to do a lot till I get home from work but am ready to go - *checks supplies, ticking off each on. backgrounds - check, goodie bags - check, images and other collage items - check, baileys - check, tiara - check!!! All ready see you soon

06-18-2009, 04:35 PM
It's still only 9.30ish on Thursday here. I will be working tomoro til 9pm then doing the monthly grocery shop (Must remember Bailey's) so by the time i get finished it will be time to go to bed.
Saturday, i start work at 7am but finish at 2 so all evening & all day Sunday is my play time. Woohoo.

06-18-2009, 10:05 PM
I got some neat punchies in the mail today. Maybe some of them will find their way onto A-TART art. Maybe not.

06-18-2009, 11:30 PM
Woo-hoo it's after 12 noon here in Oz - I have a couple more hours at work and then it's home time. I am just giving you the heads up that I have 6 goodie bags for swapping - will post pics when I get home - you don;t have to swap like for like - I'm easy (so to speak):twitcy:

06-18-2009, 11:34 PM
Cool! I'm working on a few goody bags too... :D

06-18-2009, 11:34 PM
Almost midnight here on the east coast of the USA....that means Jonquil must have started! Can't wait until morning to see what's been created so far.

06-18-2009, 11:38 PM

06-19-2009, 09:03 AM

06-19-2009, 09:10 AM
grr this is almost killing me. we have to wait until noon right on friday before we can start. i just woke up its 7.10 am. I am worried by noon my time ( mountain time) things are going to start disappearing on me and being snatched up !!!! but i'm sure i'll find something i like... and also have room to let everyone else share to ha ha

06-19-2009, 09:25 AM
I am itching to play too - and though its long past 12 noon - I am still at work -oops -shouldn't really be on here - but there are a couple of perks to being in charge of the network! :)

06-19-2009, 09:28 AM
grr this is almost killing me. we have to wait until noon right on friday before we can start. i just woke up its 7.10 am.

if you see something you like just pm the the person and ask if they will hold it for you...that's what others do..:D

06-19-2009, 09:35 AM
I have already traded with Jonquil and it's not noon yet.....so I guess it's a pending trade. I'm not beyond asking for something even though I'm not "officially" started ATARTing.....just make it a pending trade!

Rain Pebble
06-19-2009, 09:41 AM
Chunky page - tudor queen was for a swap.. but then the person it was for no longer participated. it is now up for trade if anyone may want it. pm me if interested


Of course if anyone is interested it will be a pending trade until it is officially noon here .

I also have the worried woman atc if anyone wants it


06-19-2009, 09:42 AM
Chardonnay has it right "if you see something you like just pm the the person and ask if they will hold it for you." So don't be shy if you see something you like.

Good morning everyone! Lovely cards so far. I actually work until 2:30 but will be here as soon as I can.

06-19-2009, 10:01 AM
good morning. it's about 10 am here ... I'm going to start making stuff & will be back to trade later. I hope some of you are up for unusual trades (charms, beads, etc..). If not, that's ok. I will post pictures and have fun anyhow. see ya' later.

06-19-2009, 10:14 AM
2 more fom me...

06-19-2009, 10:15 AM
Please note: While we may REQUEST a trade for someone's art that has been posted before our noontime, we do not post OUR trades before our noon.

Also, the a-thon is for art the we make DURING the weekend.

Other trades are perfectly alright, but only art that made during this weekend should be posted in this thread.

It's okay to mention that I have such and such in my gallery, but please don't post those to the thread.

Does that make sense?

06-19-2009, 10:16 AM
good morning. it's about 10 am here ... I'm going to start making stuff & will be back to trade later. I hope some of you are up for unusual trades (charms, beads, etc..). If not, that's ok. I will post pictures and have fun anyhow. see ya' later.

It's an all art weekend... I'm sure you'll get takers. :D

06-19-2009, 10:19 AM
well it is after midnight here in Aus..so i am off to bed.....so if ya like the 4 cards i have posted or any in my gallery just pm..and I'll get back to ya when i wake up..Nite all..hugggzz

06-19-2009, 10:29 AM
HHC ok thanks for the heads up.. im new to all this but i'll catch on pretty quick.
i know now not to post until noon.............which is cool gives me a few hrs to get it altogether but the album i posted and the atc i made last night for today. so will it count ?

06-19-2009, 11:02 AM
Morning everyone! It's 11am and counting here in NJ. (This is worse than waiting for the ball to drop on New Year's Eve!)

06-19-2009, 12:06 PM
It is 9 am Friday, my time....so I still have 3 hours to finish my "other obligations", then I should be able to get a bit of play time in between kids, and work!

Want to try some dominoes...maybe even some scrabble pieces? Will have to see what tells me that it wants to come out to play!

06-19-2009, 12:08 PM
I'm cutting inchies and then look out! :jiggy:

Super work, all. Are these our TART cards? LOLOL

06-19-2009, 12:43 PM
I've spent the afternoon making needle-felted backgrounds, going to embellish them now.

Rain Pebble
06-19-2009, 12:52 PM
its almost 11 am. only one more hr to go lol

06-19-2009, 12:56 PM
two hours for me. I have to get to the post office today, and hubby is taking me out to dinner since it is his last night before going on a 10 day shift. But hey I'll have plenty of time for art after he leaves ;)

06-19-2009, 01:19 PM

06-19-2009, 01:49 PM
looking really good gals... just did the weekly grocery thingy.. and now going to go and do something... after... I have coffee and get my mood going right... someone remind me
not to shop on Friday....

06-19-2009, 03:37 PM
Hurray...it's past noon on the West Coast! I sorted images this morning....now, a quick lunch and to Art!

06-19-2009, 03:46 PM
Just changed my mood to museless....it is eluding me today! Tried 3 cards which will be gesso'd over and begun again. I have three others that are acceptable and are drying. I'll post later.
meanwhile....I also have 3 grab-bags with images, papers and fibers that are up for grabs....no trade needed or we can just wait and see what the weekend brings. But the first three people to pm me will get a bag! PM an address and interests - i'll add stuff if I have anything you might be looking for.
Going out to the garden to see if that will inspire me!

06-19-2009, 04:01 PM
WOW, I haven't even got out the door to the garden yet! Sorry, all three bags have been asked for........if I get time I'll make a few more - heaven knows I need to organize and just keep the things I really believe I will use and not every piece of paper that catches my eye!

06-19-2009, 04:04 PM

06-19-2009, 04:22 PM
Well I managed to get my first 3 ATCs uploaded to my gallery - though the pics are not brilliant as the light is fading - so sorry! I will try for better ones tomorrow. I also have 3 goody bags on offer - and will post pics in the morning. ;)

06-19-2009, 04:32 PM
Well, I've got 3 tabs open, trying to get links to the pix in my gallery--can't wait to see what confusion I create out of this (perhaps my best creation of the day!).

At any rate, if my computer abilities, fail, the first 4 images in my gallery are up for grabs if anyone is interested!





crossing my fingers....

06-19-2009, 04:34 PM
yep, didn't think that would work. When I right click, I don't get the option to "copy image location", but only "copy" or "copy shortcut"; I'd appreciate any advice!

Hey complicious, this is the easiest way that I've found to get images into your post:

To Link an Image from your computer into a Post:

1. Click Go Advanced instead of Post Quick reply
2. When new screen opens, scroll down to the Manage Attachments Button
3. click on it, a new screen will open

4. Click on Browse to find the picture you wish to attach on your computer, then click Upload
5. The File will upload and show a little icon
(Or add an address from a URL File and then click Upload)

6. Click on the paper clip
and your image will be added to your post.
You can then preview your post or click Submit Reply

Hi everybody! Happy a TART-a-thon!

Here are the things I made today:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/323/large/1_09JUNcharms.jpg (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=84593)
(click through to my gallery for more info about the charms)

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/323/large/1_09JUNinchies.jpg (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=84594)

I am willing to trade items individually or together as sets.

I will trade for supplies OR finished art.

*I would like to especially trade for:
- beads (seed beads, small beads, shaped beads - no ponys)
- tiny things that can be used on art dolls and art quilts
... (beads, buttons, tiny toys, game pieces, prima-type flowers, etc...)
*I also collect inchies, handmade charms, atcs, matchbox shrines, chunky pages, postage stamps, postcards, art dolls
*Themes I particularly enjoy are: cats, Halloween (light or dark), nature (birds, trees, etc..), and oddities

PM me to set up trades. I will be posting a variety of goodies this weekend as the muses influence me to create.

very simple flower twinchies. but i am drawn to the colors and they would look nice made in to a greeting card or something if someone wanted to use them ( which would be okto)

please pm me if interested. thanks

06-19-2009, 06:56 PM
Hey you guys! Fabulous art going on here! I just got home, have to run to the store for stuff hubby forgot this afternoon, and will be back soon....

I make alot of paper bag albums/scrapbooks.. this particular one is in blacks, pink and white some of my favorite colors. its very girly and would be perfect if you wanted to use it for a journal also. Various pull out tabs to add the little extra notes/photos etc.
It consists of around 16 pages including front and back cover.


if you have any specific questions please let me know. I hope this was ok to post here. it is still considered art.

06-19-2009, 07:03 PM
So, I started working on altered dominoes--since I had some--and I realized that I don't have a clue what to do with them! LOL.

Any ideas? Are there any tutorials somewhere? I would like to salvage these and do something to fix them up....but not sure what!


Rain Pebble
06-19-2009, 07:19 PM
tamrantula you can turn altered dominoes in to necklace. i have one here at the house.
Those are very pretty great job

I'm so proud of you all with your lovely work! Wonderful, just wonderful!

06-19-2009, 08:27 PM
Everybody is getting all kinds of things done and all I got done were six inchies...I'll keep at it!

06-19-2009, 08:31 PM
Beautiful inchies, Jean! Very delicate.

I've finished two more atcs and I'm calling it a night. I might play around with altering some scrabble tiles later...haven't tried that before

06-19-2009, 08:37 PM
Pretty inchies, Jean!

Well, today has been a great one in terms of inspiration...first I made this Chicken Family chunky page...


Then I made these collages...Dragon, Lighthouse (Traded) and Poison (Traded)...

So far all I've gotten done today is 5 loads of laundry and cleaned my bathroom.

But I've got some backgrounds done and will get to work after I take a quick shower!

06-19-2009, 08:52 PM
wOW, you gals rock. Really neat, MRJean and Jean, there's nothing in the world like a "fruit inchie".....for itty bitty appetites. Love your work gal....and.....the whole blasted crew is really fired up. I'm poking along in the slow lane.......

06-19-2009, 09:02 PM
Well, I am beginning to think it is time to stick to ATCs and stop trying out new stuff! LOL

I was trying to make my first art doll--but smeared the whole face, darn it!


Here it is, anyway...to prove I really was doing SOMETHING! LOL

Now, off to try a few ATCs.

06-19-2009, 09:13 PM
Here are the ATCs I've done so far. Like Tam, I'm sticking to what I do best....ATCs.

Ok, I'm losing time here drooling over everyone's work. Maybe we should have a MAKINGartathon and then the following weekend, a 24-hour TRADINGartathon frenzy! I'm not really serious - sounds like a lot of work - but I am spending so much time here my Bailey's has lost its chill and my sandwich got hard! LOL

I think I'll try twinchies next.

06-19-2009, 09:17 PM
Maybe not. I just realized I cut my watercolour paper into 20 pieces that are **3** inches square instead of two! *banging head on keyboard*

06-19-2009, 09:27 PM
Ok. I finally realized I could cut them down to 2x2 and have 1-inch pieces for inchies.

Now my question is ... why are my 2x2 squares fine, but the 1-inch pieces all different widths???? *banging head*

This *is* the Cut-a-Thon, right? argh.

06-19-2009, 09:34 PM
Jean I think you need more Bailey's..:D

06-19-2009, 09:36 PM
measure twice, cut once....twice,...3 times....LOL

06-19-2009, 09:44 PM
lol..I don't know about everyone else here..but sometimes I think a little bribery is a good thing...normally today we do our grocery shopping....but as i wanted to play and we didn't needa real lot..I said to Mum if ya go alone today I will give ya some money to buy more of your books..:D...my Mum knows a good deal when she she's it..lol..It'll probably cost me about $60 but I don't care..lol..best thing is I get to play and the real bonus iswith new books to read she won't wanna use the comp..:D

06-19-2009, 09:54 PM

I managed to create a few zentangles. Inspired by my friends in the Zentangles with a Twist social group.

My tiara fell off while I was doing the 4th one, so it messed up a bit,but you can see it anyway. All are available.

I like the idea of a MAKINGartathon and then the following weekend, a 24-hour TRADINGartathon frenzy. The idea of making stuff, letting it dry, scanning it, and posting it while trying to look at everyone else's stuff overwhelms me!

I will be making art at a friends tomorrow and will try to post it later though.

06-19-2009, 10:48 PM

You all are having just way too much fun!
I would have been here sooner but I had a man to see, a ballgame to attend and some switching around of vehicles so I could go see the man and the ballgame. Our team won! Yeah!!! They are 6 and 2 for the season now.
I'm fixing to get over to my painting table and see what kind of mess I can add to the mess that's still there from last weekend's CAT. Just means I won't have to drag anything out!
You all have set the bar high! I think Chunky pages are first on my list. I shall return afterwhile to show you what I came up with!

Just Ducky

Good morning!
There has been a lot going on here while I was sleeping. Great stuff everyone!!:D

It´s 5 am and I´m still half asleep :sleep: Guess it´s best to take a shower and grab a cup of coffee, maybe then I´ll be able to decide what I´ll do today.

06-19-2009, 11:06 PM
ROFL It was an oriental girl in leather but it gave me something else to alter a Mona for the Original set of six Inchies I did for the Inchie PAT. I am making Mona inchies this weekend to ... like these but not Exactly the same since each is hand made...


06-19-2009, 11:07 PM
Wow! Char/Linda! I am famous! LOL

Actually, my ATCs didn't turn out...so, I am off to bed for a nap before work...maybe I will get some made tomorrow--hopefully!

I gotta get one of those Twinchies Linda....gotta make some for trade. I have never made a twinchie before.

06-19-2009, 11:25 PM
I'm off to bed. Got four more ATCs made but are drying. Will post in the morning. I agree with....whomever....a makeathon and then a trade-a-thon! I'm only doing ATCs because:
that's what I know
they are "faster" than the other things I make (memory boxes and shadow boxes and assemblages)......
Nighty night!
Ducky.....catch you tomorrow hopefully!

Just Ducky
06-19-2009, 11:26 PM
ok... did a few ATCs this time.. but think I will try some more tags tomorrow...

I have four chunky pages in stages of drying at the moment. I am going to do some drawn ATCs while the chunky pages are drying. You probably won't see any chunky pages till much later...lots of drying time with them...but ATCs don't take drying time so give me an hour or so and I'll have something for you all to look at.
The bar is still raised quite high! Very nice artwork you all are doing tonight/today.

When you all do Chunky pages for this type thing are they cut 4" x 4" or 4 1/2" x 4"???

I'm thinking of starting a Halloween theme chunky book.

I guess I better post so I can subscribe to the thread and keep up with the goings on. I've made a trade for a goody bag so far, and I'm working on my first inchies and twinchies. Probably post some in the morning. They are all going to be hand drawn multi-colored abstracts. See you all in the a.m.

I may make a couple tags this weekend too. That I'm not new to at all. Been doing tags with old friends for about 3 years.

So I did my first ever inchies. And here they are.;) all traded except #6. See my gallery

Red Fish- mixed meda --- lots of layers here too. No danglies yet either... text page painted gold with acrylic ink, red nylon head scarf, eyelash yarn, god thread, bronze colored nylon ribbon, red plastic netting from an onion bag, fake pearl beads, yellow cording.

Sweet dreams Char

06-20-2009, 10:23 AM
OK, of course. I forgot that I was working all day Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening - and my son's birthday is Sunday.... so I started ahead of time, and have been working on some new and some unfinished Prayer flags, some kimono cards I had laid out ready to go, and some other stuff. Almost ready to post some to the thread, but I have to go take the b'day cake out of the oven...(do cakes count????) and get ready to go to work.
See ya'll later tonight!

06-20-2009, 10:44 AM
Can't wait! Not too late tonight I hope :twitcy:

06-20-2009, 10:53 AM
So many beaustiful cards here! I'll upload my ATCs and rolos after one hour. Need to find camera first.

06-20-2009, 11:32 AM
Hello sniisk *waves* good to see you made it:)

06-20-2009, 11:44 AM
Evalila I like that fishy card.

I wanted to let everyone know that I do not have to trade like for like... meaning I don't have to trade twinchie for twinchie, atc for atc, ect, IF you want to trade for something I made and you want to offer something else just make an offer.

That said I mentioned before that I am thinking of starting a Halloween chunky book. I think it would be awsome if a picture of you in costume was on it front or back somewhere to, but it isn't necassary. If anyone wants to make me a page...

I looked through the art supplies I have here. My best yarns are at the trailer, but I have some fibers and stuff to work with. My Halloween is at the trailer but I do have a skelly rubberstamp and can do something Halloween, DOTD or like the APC's in my gallery on a chunky with that. I can do flower/garden theme, Kitty theme, Vintage theme, Baby theme, Christmas, Santa theme, Snowman/winter (not necassarly Christmas) theme,

06-20-2009, 12:01 PM
Here are my first pictures. Three rolos.

I love art but my favorite type of art is done using the computer. i very much enjoy graphic design. when i have completed my criminal justice degree i am going to school for art and design something.. haven't quite decided yet.

anyway this particular design is for writing paper and it has envelopes to match. But i can also print out small enough to use as a background for atc.
if anyone is interested please pm me letting me know of your requirements.
I will happily trade for atcs, twinchies, whatever you may have avaialble.

typically it comes in 10 sheets, or 10 sheets with matching envelopes and then the same thing but in 20.
this is one of my many designs from willow tree studios.

06-20-2009, 12:06 PM
Good morning everyone! Some fabulous art over my night. :D I'll get some more tea in me and be back soon... I'm working on fairies for the summer solstice party I'm going to tonight, but will have some extras for here too. Hope you all like fairies.

06-20-2009, 12:11 PM
I love fairies!!!!!!

Rain Pebble
06-20-2009, 12:13 PM

Again these designs are 10 sheets, or 10 sheets with matching envelopes and then the same thing but in 20.

Morning Dove please! :jiggy:

06-20-2009, 02:27 PM
Ibus and Sniisk I just PM'd you! The cards you requested are yours.

FYI - I will be making more spirelli cards - a bunch just traded.

Acacia.rose - I am definately interested in your brown bag art - I've been eyeing it since you posted it. Trying to think what I have that is worthy of the trade. I'm PMing you now.

06-20-2009, 02:46 PM
Snisk I have one rolo in my rolo gallery that has not traded and I could make more this weekend.

06-20-2009, 03:00 PM
So here's some cards I've finished... Ack! Had a few that didn't work. Hate it when that happens. :D Mallow Fairy and Foxglove Fairy are using pictures of flowers from my garden. Others use paper napkins in the background.

Foxglove fairy is a repeat of one I traded a while ago. It's one of the ones I'm using for the party tonight, so thought I'd include it.

06-20-2009, 03:02 PM
Cool art you guys. I have to run out for a bit, but will be back soon to see the new lovelies.

06-20-2009, 03:05 PM
Well i finally made it on Saturday evening. It's 8pm here & i have only just started. I may only be able to make it for an hour or two here & there tho.
I have 5 little books for altering/scrapbooking memories etc for a trade if anyone is interested.
Will post some goodie bags soon.
Not yet made ATC's but hope to make a few before i go to bed.
Please excuse my shadow right across the pics. Hope it doesn't spoil the view. LOL. x

It is so much fun to see so many different art forms!
I'm at work today...did bring my pens...maybe I'll get a chance to create some zens.

I did put together goody bags at home (no pics, but think beads, paper, napkins, arty oddities) in Red,Yellow,Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Gray, Black and White!

Also, in the themes of BIRDS and CATS (Traded) (with lots of collage images, napkins, some cool beads)!

06-20-2009, 03:43 PM
I'm still waiting for to see more inchies :). I haven't ever made any but maybe I will, some day.

06-20-2009, 03:47 PM
Everybody is so inspired today! I did my first ever twinchies (including a brave attempt to put my whimsey art I workshop coloring practice to work). I'd be interested to trade, either for other twinchies or other art; let me know.

I think I'm throwing inchies overboard for twinchies! I had no idea. lol

06-20-2009, 03:50 PM
mrubyjean that cats goodie bag sounds interesting! If I can tempt you into a trade for it.

06-20-2009, 03:54 PM
Sniisk, your "Rabbit" is a real winner. If it is still around for a trade, Ring-My-Bell.
