It’s another “All-Types-of-Art” a-Thon Weekend!

Come play with us this weekend! Create art using any medium, in any size, shape or form, post your creation on this thread, trade if you wish, chat, have fun!

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm on Friday August 28, 2009 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm August 30, 2009. Or whenever we decide to stop playing.

JUST WHAT IS THIS ART-A-THON?
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, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, 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) HAVE FUN!


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 August 28 (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 August 30 (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.

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE 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 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 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:

NEW TO A-THONS?
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.

Let’s get started creating!

hehehe...doesn't take much....you obviously cant cram to much on it..so I think color is the key!

sniisk
08-28-2009, 02:34 PM
OK, the colours will be important. If I don't like my inchies, I'll put then in ATCs and then they are not inchies anymore :).

KESagers
08-28-2009, 02:38 PM
Sniisk I make my inchies pretty plain - not too much on them. JanisElain gets a lot of texture and dimension on hers. I think everybody's style is different.

sniisk
08-28-2009, 02:43 PM
I have my first ever inchie ready. I can't take a picture anymore today because it's so dark here and sun is not shining so late anymore. But there will be a apicture tomorrow.

sniisk
08-28-2009, 02:49 PM
Sorry to say but I'm too tired to stay here. It's only 10 pm here but I haven't slept well this week and I need to go to sleep now. But I'm coming back in the morning.

Good night everyone and make a lot of art :).

Here is the next batch. Just Ducky has inspired me to get back to my teabag folding so here are 3 ATC's with Kite Fold medallions. The tiles are my original kaleidoscopes which were created from my fathers' original photos. (The background is the original photo.) Please know that these are photo weight cards - not heavy weight. Also while I only have 2 of each for trade right now these cards are NOT unlimited - I will be making more in the future. Please PM me if you want to trade.

UPDATE: Still have 2 Pink Dogwood left to trade

It's a bit addictive isn't it? I do this sort of thing while I watch tv. :twitcy: I'm making some inchie sized medallions but it's taking me forever so I don't think I'll have them ready for the art-a-thon but eventually I'll get them done.

I haven't checked in yet, but I've been busy: completed 5 found poetry cards for that swap (I'll share the gallery or thread link later); 4 water photo cards; and planned out 4 cards using a map, all for swaps I'm in.

Now, here's what I have for the thread:

I've got my Roses cards done (just had to put the backs on) and managed one for here, it's drying so will scan it tomorrow. Two others ready to put the beeswax and layers on, but I'm not playing with beeswax at this time of the morning!

OK - here are my digital offerings for the art-a-thon. These prints will be offered on an unlimited basis during the art-a-thon and then they will no longer be offered as a digital print. (You may see the image incorporated into a card in another form but it will not be offered as a print.) The ATC is printed on quality photo paper and that is the weight of the card. The original photos are my fathers' but the Kaleidoscope is all my creation. Please PM me if you would like to trade.

I have been busy on a different project...here is a peek! Pictures are terrible, but you should at least be able to get an idea!

I need to make 20 things for goodie bags for a Oz festival in a couple weeks. This is my idea....kind of like a worry stone.

I did work on playing with layers on ATCs--made 2 that are really not good--and one that is in process that I like.

So here are the two I don't like...not sure what I am going to do with them....take them apart and start over, probably!

OK - so now that the party is roaring to life I gotta get some shut eye! I'll check in tomorrow when I get up (hopefully late as it is the weekend) and see what mayhem took place while I slept. Happy crafting everyone!

PS Tamrantula - I like the 2 that you don't like. Have my eye on the one with the pink dude! Never fails - make something you don't like and some one else will want it!

Okay... here's a challenge.
Pick out a background that's already made...
Then go through your pre-cut images... pull out an uneven number and stick them down without thinking too much about it.
Add any embellishments it seems to call for and then show us what you've created.

Some wonderful art posted - very inspiring, I hope to be able to trade if I get anything completed!

I did manage to get some backgrounds done last nite, trying out some techniques I haven't played with before. A few have been allocated to a swap I've joined.

But alas, the hoover calls, I must vacuum all the cat and dog hair before I create...

Hello all, I can't play this weekend unfortunately but thought I'd get in a quick peek. Many of you knew that I was living with my Dad as his personal assistant/care giver. Dad passed away on August 14th and I am still dealing with the aftermath of the services, family visits etc. On a brighter note, in the same week, my youngest son returned to the US from his deployment AND my oldest son had his first child, a healthy baby girl. So as you can see I have a lot on my plate right now. I'll be back once my world sets itself back up!

My first Art-a-thon upload of the day! Die cuts were made from card stock I colored with alcohol inks. They were over-stamped and then assembled. I have 2 sets of 4 for a total of 8 to trade. Please PM me if your are interested.

Kathi, so lovely inchies! I hope to make many new inchies because there seems to be many of them in the thread :).

Maybe I'll leave twinchies this time and try them when we have next ATART.

Oh my you have been busy bunnies while I was sleeping- although I have to say I do feel better for a rest and now I am inspired to create and my desk is nearly clean enough too!

Just have to move a few things more and I will get started- the cat is fed so she wont bug me and I am ready to go!

I am home from work--but need to get some sleep. Not sure what my day will bring, cause I am getting my new pet today! It is an adult iguana! WHOO HOO!

Maybe I can take pics and make some cards with them!

Anyway, heading off to bed to get a few hours of sleep before the arrival time!

Hopefully, I will make time to get some things made later in the day~!

where did i put my other tin of gouache paints?????

Its probably by the patio door on top of the plastic bin for dogfood, where I left a stack of cards last night and it took me an hour to find!!!!!:twitcy:

super wow ya all.... lots happening since I signed out last nite... gonna take me an hour to go back and get caught up....
oh Ibus... love what I seeing....

I so sorry but I think poor Ducky has crashed in a heap these last couple weeks and really struggling to get some new stuff going... no reason for this that I can put up as an excuse... just one of them darn down times I guess...
but.... we will get the feathers preemed and waddling in a short....
now I gotta go see all the great things you gals been doing...

I made some more inchies but because it's again too dark here, I need to take the picture in the morning. There are two too similar inchies in my first inchie post and I'm going to make new sets to fix the problem.

08-29-2009, 03:04 PM
OK, it's again 10 pm and because of this week and all what happened, I'm ready to go to sleep. Need to read the PMs first but then it's time to say good night. More inchies coming tomorrow, more ATCs coming tomorrow and if I have time, I'll make a rolo too.

If someone finds something to trade from my available cards, just send a PM :).

More Art-a-thon teabag cards. The cool collaged swirly backgrounds are from Just Ducky. She sent me a bunch that she made and I scanned them and have been inspired by them. The tea bag tiles are made from my original kaleidoscopes and the fortunes are from cookies.:D Please PM me if you are interested in a trade.

WOW So many lovelies in these 12 pages! It took me over an hour to catch up.

I had a pusy day yesterday, I did work some on the wood shelf I'm making (pic in my gallery) and started on your Blue Puzzle piece Ibus.

I'm going out of town in a couple of weeks to see my son and we are taking a 4 night cruise to Ensenada, mexico. It was $309 per person (window room). It would cost me a lot more than that for four days in a motel, meals out and trying to figure out something to do other than sitting in a motel room or restaurant. It is his first cruise I hope he likes it.

Anyways my point being is I don't know if I'll do much in the way of trading goodies, but I will be working and the swap and trades I already owe, and see if my muse strays...

Great work! I feel exhausted after just looking at the 7 pages of this thread added since I last looked. Like Linda, I'm working on a puzzle piece for Ibus, just auditioning collage elements right now (though I think the background needs 2 more layers). I'll try to link the found poetry cards I made yesterday and here are inchies I made for littlelila and TWINCHIES that are available: those are Lumiere hand painted on watercolor wash background

Been busy working on some inchies. They are drying and then I'll upload.

Ducky - I'm using tiles that are 1.5 cm to get that size medalions with the kite fold. There is another fold I've been doing and it makes a medalion small enough for an inchie - they take forever though so I wont have them ready for this weekend. Boy you are cold there!
