Robby, try in your photo program, look for resize button. I use 'pixels' not inches and use 250 for my longer side...hope this helps. If you can resize it in your program, you can delete the image by editing your post and then either reupload the smaller one or eles repost it. Hope this helps!

The iguana is new to me--just getting him today!
The people who gave him to us, have had him for a year--not by choice! They were very happy to find him a new home!
I don't know anything about the poeple who had him before that.

If you hold your hands at your waist, palms facing toward each other--that is about how big he is, without his tail! So, a big boy!

HHC
08-30-2009, 12:16 AM
Okay, your challenge for tonight is to
1) use something recycled from your mail as part of your art work and
2) make that piece of recycled material the focal point or theme of the art piece you're creating.

Your recycled piece can be part of a credit card offer letter, a picture or words from an ad or magazine, a stamp from some mail you received, a piece of a greeting card you've received... it just needs to be recycled from a piece of mail you've received.

Will that work as a challenge? ;)

When I was a kid we had a couple of smaller iguanas they didn't have a cage, they spent most of their time on top of the curtains... LOL

Then in the 8th grade I had a science teacher who had a huge iguana in a big special buit glass cage. I remember one day we came to class and there was a big trashcan turned upside down, with a bunch of books stacked on top and a sign saying IT'S IN HERE! :biglaugh: I still wonder how he got all the tail and everything under the can without hurting the iguana if he was so afraid of it.:twitcy:

Unfortunately I have not done anything today either. Instead of going to the studio when I shut down earlier I took a shower then a nice Long nap. I have been browsing the site, my e-mails, and some catalogs the rest of the time. I only have some hand drawing stuff here in the house to work on so I don't know what I'll get done tonight, but I am rested up.

Maybe tomorrow I'll be more productive.:skeptical:

Wow! Some really beautiful art's been posted (it's taken me ages to catch up all the thread posts!)

My main aim for the all-types-of art-a-thon was to practice collage - I often get stuck composing but I enjoy the process so would like to improve, in particular trying out different background techniques, transferring images to fabric using gel medium (not always successful!) and different finishing techniques - I've never coated any of my collages, and that has been interesting too. I even managed to get a set finished for a swap and a couple I owed out.

I'm loving the idea of the altered playing cards you all have been doing, I think I'll need to look for some this afternoon when I go to the shops!

My offerings, do pm if you want to trade. (all are in my gallery)

08-30-2009, 08:51 AM
Gina-B I LOVE the boat card :D would ask for it in trade but I don't know if I have the energy to create much at the moment!

sniisk- I have traded inchies from 1-6 at a time :) no it doesn't matter if they are not the same subject although you might get people asking for 3 or four at a time.... whatever you fancy trading really

Here is some of the stuff I have been working on:

Top set is for the Outsider Art swap if people like them and the bottom set is Butterfly inchies for Robin. Will try and work on some stuff for trading here but I can't promise anything as I am suffering (and highly contagious!) from flu....

I'm here... Reading the thread. Good morning.

I don't know why the forum didn't let me log in earlier. I have tried to do it almost an Ihour.

I never log out - just close the window and the next time you click on, you won't have to re-enter all your info again. I save tabs on my browser so all I have to do is click and voila! I'm in!

sniisk
08-30-2009, 11:31 AM
I can make some more cards today but it's 6.30 pm here. And I have still some parrot cards coming because Martha didn't get her card yet. Sorry, my fault, I made a mistake :(.

Oh, but when I shut down my computer, it log out everywhere. It's a safety reason because I'm also working with this computer.

Ibus
08-30-2009, 11:46 AM
Sniisk, next to the log in details is a little box labelled 'Remember me' tick this, then when you switch on your computer and go to AFA it will automatically log you in. It's what I do, cos I have to switch off my computer when I'm finished with it.

sniisk
08-30-2009, 11:49 AM
Ibus, I have tried it, but it didn't work. I think the point of logging out everywhere is exactly that nobody can try to keep me logged in anywhere if the computer is shut down.

Thanks sniisk, I keep the "remember me" checked, but even so there are times I get the timed out notice also....really notice it happens at about same time so figure it is a rush hour type thing and just keep trying....
I am hoping to do my first hosting of swap very soon and it will be a tea bag folding type thing, so I am keeping track of all those who have said they like it! and will send notice when I get started....:jiggy::yes:

I slept in today too - but then that's not too unusual for me lately (lol). I've got 11 cards about 99.9% complete - they all need a bit of something - don't know what - waiting on muse, who evidently is going to sleep all day (lol). I may pay my mom & dad a visit in a little while so I may not get them uploaded until later on this evening. But hoping to get them here in time.

Blue Puzzle Piece for Ibus http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/259/large/1_Blue_Puzzle_for_Ibus.jpg OK It may have put glitter on my scanner but I had to share this. I want one!

The scanner doesn't work well with dimensional stuff, but I love the way this came out. The background is shades of blue acrylic paint and Perfect Pearls powder.

Just for the record... if you have created something before midnight, and aren't able to post it until Monday morning... that's absolutely alright. And if it's a couple of minutes after when you finish, the art-a-thon police aren't going to give you a ticket. (I think... :unsure:)

However.. if you finish three hours after, or work on it Monday morning, and then post to this thread, you'll run the risk of having your art supplies confiscated, so beware. :policeman:

LOLOL!

And as long as there are pieces of art available to trade, you may keep on trading, regardless of the time. :wub:

I have a tip for those of you that feel you never have enough made to trade for the things you want. If you work on stocking up your available gallery ahead of the a-thon there will be more options for people to trade with you. I often pick older cards when someone asks me for a trade if I something I like in their gallery.
