View Full Version : Itís the July 24 - 26 Collage-a-thon!

And itís open to everyone!

Start time (in your time zone Ė start when your clock says 5:00 pm) July 24 at 5:00 pm
End time (in your time zone) July 26, 2009 - 11:59 pm

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

AND WHAT IS COLLAGE? A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of art made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
For the purpose of this a-thon, collage is the combining of materials to create art, be that paper, fabric, beads, paint, metalÖ any combination of materials in an assemblage manner is considered collage.

HOW THE COLLAGE-A-THON WORKS: At 5:00 on July 24 (your time zone) you start to collage your ATCís (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 July 26 (your time zone) youíre done collagingÖ however you may continue to trade as long as you like.

OPTIONAL CHALLENGE: (key word is optional... do whatever floats your boat as long as it's some type of collage)
Challenge: Use three or more media on your cards. (i.e. paint, collaged items, fibers, beads, rubber stamps, embossing, inks, pens, colored pencils, pastels, beeswax, melted crayonsÖ)

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 willÖ 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.

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD:

NOTE: loading from your gallery is preferred by some 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: Itís 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.

An easier way with my browser(Firefox) Go to your gallery, find the picture you want to post, right click to get a menu, click on Copy Image Location, then proceed with steps 5-7s. The image will be small, you can adjust the size if you'd like.

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

I don't think a challenge is really needed. But, on the other hand, it does inspire some folks ... (how is THAT for a non-answer?!)

sueatbwp
07-22-2009, 07:29 PM
I usually use at least 2 media in my backgrounds so adding collage elements makes 3. I say keep the challenge as you did state it was optional.

I am so excited! This is my first ever "...."-a-thon!!!!!! I have been preparing my craft room for a weekend of collaging!

I went today to pick up some new supplies for this weekend... Of course, I had to try them out beforehand! How many cards does one generally get finished in a weekend?

The only concern I have is that I can not post pictures into a thread becaue I am a newbie and I don't have enough comments in the forums. Hopefully I will be able to get enough by Friday!:unsure:

I'll try to participate as much as I can although I'll be in Bloomington this weekend. I do have a craft room at my boyfriend's home, but it isn't nearly as well stocked as my one at home. Also, he always tells me there isn't much going on during the summer (it's a college town), but he always seems to find stuff to fill up the weekends.

Holy stick 'em Batman!!! That's a lot of glue!! You crack me up!!! ... or is that ... you quack me up?

We are having a last minute visitor tomorrow night( OK, I'm glad, but not liking the timing!) After 25 years of marriage, this is the FIRST time anyone from my husband's family (with the exception of his parents who have passed away) has come to see our home or spend the night. Hell, they'll drive right through our town and not even call. And they are a "close" family .... don't get it ... I just don't get it... we are fun people! Ask HHC!! She'll tell you! We're good people!

sorry ... I'm on my pain meds again and I'm rambling .... ANYWAY!! Looks like it may be Saturday night before I can get to collaging ... and I've been prepping ... alright ... I'll go to bed and leave you alone for now ... no more emailing on pain meds for me!!! (I think I'm lying when I say that) :twitcy:

My husband is visiting his parents 400 miles away from us. I couldn't go there now because I don't have a holiday anymore. Good timing this time!

Wow off to a great start. I'm lurking but I have to wake my muse up.

I Have been having computer issues since Thursday last week. Everyday except Sunday and yesterday I have spent multiple hours on the phone with one tech person after another. HP called me today and spent a couple more hours, I finally hit overload and was near tears. Many of you have heard me say it before, I love this site, I love the online game (EQ) my husband and I have played for 8 years now, BUT I HATE COMPUTERS!

Whew had to get that off my chest.... going to grab some coffee and supplies and try to wake my muse up.

I started to list the moods people have here in our CAT thread. Interesting. There are 5 persons "collaging"! Wow, it's much :). Three are "creative", it's even better. One is "yeehaw", sounds good because we know she is collaging too. One is "magical", can be, I know the magic of the art :). One is "sunshine", OK me too, but I'm still more collaging. One is "happy", of course because we have a CAT. One is "cold", hope this doesn't make it less fun weekend. One is "flirty", what are you doing there? One is "cheerful", sounds good. One is "bahahaha!" and it makes me a bit scared. One is "relaxed" and it sounds good too. But what about three "tired", one "mellow", one "stressed", one "busy", one "bashful" and one "crappy" and one "museless"? How can we help them? And what are we going to do for one who is "drawing"?!?

Oh, such lovely cards! This flirty girl could just have easily been marked museless last night...I TRIED to make cards, cut out some images, shuffled 'em around...nothing.

Hopefully today will be better because I so love these a-thons!

... as to the rest it's been quite warm (90's) and sunny. Whole family was out at my parents house last weekend, as they were pouring a new concrete floor in Dad's shop. And I will have my grandpuppy for a few hours today, as the friend who was watching her while my daughter is out of town has other plans today. Just "regular life" stuff, huh?

I'm really hoping that I can devote most of this weekend to the a-thon and various other projects in progress...

Good morning! Wow! It took me awhile to catch up. Cool ATCs peoples! Went through a cup of tea while browsing. ;)

Tarasue21, check the first post in the thread for a couple of options to post your cards.

I just got out my beeswax. It usually gets my muse started. :)

Oh, and I'm one of those "collaging" moods... because, well, I'm collaging. LOL!

Wow, some really beautiful cards have been posted! I stared at everything on my table last night, and ended up organising beads as I had noooo inspiration. Been out today in lovely sunshine and feel revived, so that, alongwith all the lovely cards you lot have finished (I can't believe how many!) I may, just, get something collaged!....

HHC
07-25-2009, 11:56 AM
I made some stamped "collages". Not sure if one would consider these collages. Maybe the one with the stamp?

Nice cards! The one with a stamp added is considered collage. The first post has a definition of what is considered collage during this a-thon.

Please post only collage to the thread. You are free to mention you have new cards in your gallery. :wub:

sniisk -- I forgot to change my mood. I was ornery yesterday because I was in the garden weeding after 5 days of rain. Our city Garden Walk is today and we are part of it. I'd much rather be collaging......

well most are... made for Martha Stewart ... think I got them at Walmarts... must be since that is the only store around here... but knowing how Walmart works... they probably don't have them now... almost like a yard sale... buy it now, cause it won't be there the next time...

Beautiful cards everyone! I'm excited to hopefully get a few cards done tonight. First order of business is washing the ten tons of spackle dust that has landed in my hair while sanding an expanse of sheetrock in my upstairs that just never seems to end.

my first four - used four colors of paint splashed about on the background - looks just green on the scanner but there is blue, green, yellow with bronze - rubberstamped text then images with book text.

Hey kiddies! You are all making fabulous cards.
I bought some fun paper at the sale... they had cookies too. Got the groceries all put away, and now down to creating.

Also just want to remind folks: if you wish to make a trade, please pm the person. Not all of us read through the entire thread (looking for eye candy, don't you know...) so a pm guarantees your request is not missed, and avoids any hard feelings. Thanks!
