You are all invited to come play in our Collage-a-thon

Start time (in your time zone at 5:00 pm) October 16 at 5:00 pm.
End time (in your time zone 11:59 pm) October 18, 2009 - 11:59 pm. Trading (if you wish) ensues at will throughout the weekend and beyond…

What is 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 are all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies 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.

Just 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, metal… any combination of adhering two or more materials together is considered collage.

This weekend is all about creating art and having fun, even if you only finish one piece during the weekend.

OPTIONAL CHALLENGE: (NOT a requirement!)
Theme Challenge: Cards depicting The Day of the Dead / El Día de los Muertos /All Souls' Day
Technique Challenge: Create cards with three or more layers and use three or more different media on your cards. (i.e. paint, collaged items, vintage text, paper napkins, fibers, beads, rubber stamps, embossing, inks, pens, colored pencils, pastels, beeswax, melted crayons…)

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? Remember you can click the “You Rock” button and leave your admiration there too!

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 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... find the word large or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want. (I usually leave it small.)

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:

Any questions? Just post to the thread or send me a pm. Let’s get this party started! :D

Okay I am going to play BUT - I can't do a lot because I have an out of town guest coming from the US this weekend and I need to keep the place clean! Expect to see 2-6 collages from me. If I manage more than that, I will be very very surprised!

Hopefully someday I will be able to do some sort of "a-thon" and actually spend the whole weekend doing them (unlikely - HA!)

Hugs,

Doreen Taylor

I hope to be able to play at least a bit.
My husband´s grandaunt had a crippling stroke. It was her second one and unfortunately the doctor´s don´t think she will survive it this time. All we can do is keep on waiting ...:(

Thanks for the reminder PM, HHC. I'm sure I'll be able to get a few cards done on Saturday. I always enjoy CATs.

Glad to see you all here! I actually don't work this weekend other than Friday until 7:30, (yippee!) so will be able to devote more time to collaging. :D

Evalila, sending thoughts and prayers to your family.

Yahoo!!!! I've been finishing my swap commitments, clipping ephemera and prepping some backgrounds so I can play when I'm not working! Yippee ... I wonder if I should just be sick *cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze* on Saturday? hmmmmm how sneaky can I be:mask:

Evalila, sending good wishes to you all

Thanks for the heads up on this. I am hoping to play at some point, but do have to work again this weekend, so kinda doubt it. I knew Oct would be crazy, but I'm now starting to have ATC withdrawal....

I've been looking forward to a "thon" for some time now! Weekend may be a little busy, but I should be able to devote some quality time to the CAT!

Helen thank you so much for the reminder! I'm not sure what this weekend will have in store for me. I only did 6 cards last weekend at the ZAT, I haven't been doing a lot of art lately but I have all kinds of fun collage goodies so I sure will try to join the fun this weekend!

Evalia, sending healing prayers to her, and all who love her.

Ooh, I hope to play a bit...I'll be working on our house all weekend but should be able to carve out some time to collage. :cute:

Thanks to you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. :notworthy:

Guess I´ll play as much as possible - need some distraction.

Doreen Taylor
10-16-2009, 07:45 AM
I am going to try something I have never done tonight - I am going to be collaging hand drawn elements with background papers and ephemera. :skeptical:

This could be a disaster! LOL!

If it is, just pretend you don't know me! :wacko:

sniisk
10-16-2009, 09:19 AM
Is this the official CAT thread? Can I post my pics etc. here? It's time to start after 40 minutes here :). I need to make something to eat before it.

Evalila
10-16-2009, 09:28 AM
I guess it is, sniisk. HHC posted all the usual informations in the first post of this thread.
I have about 1 hour 35 minutes left until I can start.

sniisk
10-16-2009, 09:53 AM
That's why I thought this could be it. Let's make this be it :).

:spinny: A little over 2 hours until I can start *gnash*. I wish I were home from work NOW!

Good morning!
This IS the official CAT thread, Sniisk, so post away when it's time.

Hi eveyone, I made these cards but am in a real jam. I have a slight strain in my right arm which is causing me discomfort......blah blah blah, LOL. So, I thought, what can I do that would not be to stressful on the arm? So, I stamped and glued and glittered and by the time I finished, the work was too bulky, so.....I used black electrical tape to hold everything together but now I'm finding the tape isn't holding. AArggghhhh! Please can someone suggest another way to keep the cards together. The main problem is that the glitter is too thick so that the glue isn't able to hold the papers together. If the cards remain in my folder, the electrical tape doesn't move but I feel this is inferior work to swap. Help!

Well, I fed the cats so the kitten would take a nap and not think she could help me with art....The dog is asleep on my bed where he doesn't belong but he left me alone as well so I let him stay there!
I've given myself the challenge of using only what is in the little tin on my painting table. I put only scraps and images I don't know what else to do with in that tin.
Here are the first two made from the tin of scraps. There will be more!

If anyone is interested, please shoot me off a PM and we'll work something out for a trade! Thanks for looking!

Here are three more from me. I have six in the process in one stage or another....the next batch will all be fishes.

TRADED money cat 1- play money (both plastic and paper), dry wall tape (bows), googly eyes, wire whiskers
TRADED money cat 2 - vey same as money cat 1 except this one has copper wire whiskers
TRAED traveling cat- map, magazine cutout, rickrack, glass leaf, orchard paper, wire whiskers and googly eyes

all three are mounted on thick chipboard from a game

a couple of them scanned wonky but they are all the correct size and all fit nicely in a protective sleeve even though they do have some depth to them. Also the glue is not quite dry and that does show in the scans. When you get them though, you won't see that white glue, it will be clear by then.

If anyone is interested...shoot me off a pm! The first two I posted are still available as well. I'll update the posts when I trade.

Thank you for the information. I found that I could only delete those that had boxes next to them (very few) and my oldest ones I couldn't delete. I researched and ran across this thread that deals with the situation. I figure I'd post the link here because many of us who do CATs SATs and other -ATs probably could use this info also.

They are all made with pretty much the same materials:
various fibers and ribbon, glitter, netting from a lemon bag, pink netting with gold glitter dots, ironed easter grass, googly eyes. all are attached to thick cardstock that came from cards for a game I can't remember the name of. They are thick but still fit in a protective sleeve.

TRADED alton p. fish
belle fish
TRADED carlton fish
TRADED lorinda fish
TRADED mick fish

more to come:

rhonda fish

TRADED credit cat- wallpaper,googly eyes, cardstock, wire whiskers, gold thread and a plastic useless credit card that came as junk mail (your name here type) all attached to that thick cardstock from that game I can't remember the name of.

If anyone is interested, please shoot me off a PM!
Thanks for looking!

Forgot to say I was very impatient with that glue drying and it isn't all dry on the fishes but it will dry clear and wont be noticable at all!

My latest one is in my gallery. That's all for tonight. Why? Because I am getting ill. I think I might be coming down with a really bad cold. I am sneezing a lot and I feel exhausted. It started getting really bad after I got home from the wedding. :-(

I will upload it to this thread tomorrow, but right now I just need to get some sleep. Sorry I wimped out on you all today. :-(
