MID-WEEK CAT (Collage-a-thon) Feb 3rd--Feb 5th
Mid-Week CAT (collage-a-thon)

And it’s open to everyone!

Start time (in your time zone – start when your clock says 5:00 pm) Wednesday February 3, 2010 at 5:00 pm
End time (in your time zone) Friday Feb 5th, 2010 - 11:59 pm

A-thons typically happen throughout a weekend--but, there are some of us who work weekends and that makes it more of a challenge to participate. So, this event will be Wed through Friday....but is open to ALL.


WHAT’S A COLLAGE-A-THON? It’s a marathon collage event done over the same day and time in each time zone. It’s kind of like we were all together to play with our art supplies and collage ATC’s, 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.

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, metal… any combination of materials in an assemblage manner is considered collage.

HOW THE COLLAGE-A-THON WORKS: At 5:00 on Wednesday, Feb 3rd (your time zone) you start to collage your ATC’s (prepping ahead of time is encouraged), then upload to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the event. Trading ensues. At 11:59 on Feb 5th (your time zone) you’re done collaging… however you may continue to trade as long as you like.


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 will… 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.

OPTIONAL DAILY THEMES:

Wednesday--At least 4 layers on a card! (Beeswax, napkin, rubber stamping, collage, inkwork, paint, found images, etc)

Thursday--Some type of text on your card--text page, dictionary or phone book pages, found poetry, word or two, text thought bubbles, etc

Friday--Since Valentines day is coming up....how about something related to valentines day--hearts, cupid, love, chocolate, doves, black hearts for anti-valentines! LOL Use your imagination!


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: 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.

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.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO CREATE AND TRADE ALL KINDS OF COLLAGE ATCs--MELTED CRAYON BACKGROUND, BEESWAX BACKGROUNDS, FOUND POETRY, WHERE EVER YOUR IMAGINATION LEADS YOU...ALSO INCHIES, TWINCHIES, RINCHIES,--MAKE AN AGREEMENT BETWEEN TRADERS!

02-02-2010, 06:48 PM
I just had a blast making 2 sheets of "fancy paper" to use for backgrounds.
The one pictured below is made with torn dress pattern, rubber stamping, and some cool paper mesh that I used like punchinella, on 8.5X11 white card stock. When it dried, I drew the 10 card template on the back and cut them out.
I made a black and white one too!
PS: I made a 300dpi scan of the full paper and I will send it to anyone if you PM your e-mail address.

Lynnelise
02-02-2010, 09:33 PM
Oh Wow....
I spent all day thinking today was the first day of the CAT, until I just saw Char's post from Australia that she was still WAITING to begin!!!
I'll just have to hold my horses until tomorrow night. (Maybe I'll do laundry tonight...)

I meant that I am cutting up magazines, etc. so that I have a big pile of stuff! Is this not ok? This is my first "a-thon" and I wasn't sure how to really do it.

Chardonnay1965
02-03-2010, 12:24 AM

Chardonnay1965
02-03-2010, 12:25 AM

oh great... Themes... and I not ready for any of them... been fixing up backgrounds and gathering stuff... but will see if I can come close to some kind-a-theme... somewhere...

dina54
02-03-2010, 12:57 AM
yep it is fine to do prep work...dina love your background..what is Punchinella??

That's the piece of stuff that is left over when sequins are cut out. Apparently you can buy sheets of it. If you roll ink over it you get a cool polka dotted texture.

dina54
02-03-2010, 12:58 AM
Oh, BTW, if you want the fancy paper scan, you have to send me your e-mail address. I can't figure out how to attach a file through the site's e-mail

I am working nights durning the first part of this....but I am going to try and prepare, and take my supplies to work so I can play too!! Sound like fun!!

Tamrantula
02-03-2010, 02:23 AM
I worked a 12 hour shift last night, then came home and crashed! LOL

Now, I am getting ready to go to work again!

Dina--LOVE that background idea! Can't wait to see what you make with them!

Char--love your enthusiasm! Is it time, there, yet? About 10:20 PM Tues night, here.

Ducky--no worries on theme...just an option! I am shivering in anticipation for what the duck will bring to the table! LOL

Tammy (2-LOL) Yes, Yes, Yes...Pre-thon prep is encouraged...cut and prepare all you want! Make backgrounds, make cookies and pour those drinks...oh, yeah...don't forget that babysitter, pet sitter and hubby sitter! LOL

Tamrantula
02-03-2010, 02:27 AM
Lynelise--sorry, one more day for us poor a-thon-ers on this side of the globe...but, that means we get to drool over thier awesome art and to steal all "their" ideas! LOL

Now, bluelotusflower--no fair honing on Dina's goodies...don't you know she is obligated to send them to the hostess of the a-thon???? Tis only fair, right?

ginabee--jump right in, the collage water is warming up!

bharper--I work nights, too...am working tonight, and am planning to take stuff to cut up with me! We will be cut-a-thon-ing, together in spirit! LOL

theweavershand--sorry you have to work, but glad you can join in on Wed! You make such pretty cards!

AKmamaof2--I don't know how you can take all the suspense...you are even an hour later than ME--and we are usually the very last! Might have to try making something special for the Alaskan Queen to drool over! LOL

Tamrantula
02-03-2010, 02:29 AM
I will be checking in tonight from work--I won't be able to see all the art, since some sites are blocked...but, if you have them in your gallery, I will be able to peek!

Tamrantula
02-03-2010, 07:13 AM

I need time to finish work, get home and sleep a while.....so I can be refreshed enough to make cards that don't need to be thrown into the round file in the corner!

Tamrantula
02-03-2010, 09:06 AM

Trading goes on all during that timeframe...whenever someone posts a card that you like...you can PM them! Trading does get fast and furious sometimes! LOL

So it's just after 8 AM Wed. here in Alaska and even though I am the last to get to "start" the CAT, I do get to keep creating whilst the rest of you have to quit! neener neener:P What is that saying.... Saving the best for last or something! :biglaugh:

Can I make a suggestion? Could everyone who posts a CAT card to the gallery put "CAT" or Collage-A-Thon before the title? It's way easier to find cards that way.

Well I'm ready to get in my comfy messy paint clothes- and tiara of course!! (don't have the feathered boa anymore - kids shreaded it.) I was an Iditarod Fairy before having children, and I had quite the ensemble of boas, heels, altered prom dresses with dog bisquits, crowns, etc. Maybe I'll dig out some old pictures and alter them tonight. Gonna go get a glass of wine ready and assume the position in my creative zone!! see you back here in a bit.

I NEVER sleep this long. The day I WANT to wake up early, I slept like a log!

LOL!! I Love the confetti -its everywhere here! Or is that the scraps of paper and bits on the floor??? SO here's what I've accomplished this evening. I think Tamrantula and I were sharing the same muse with our birdies with crowns. I was playing with bird ladies all evening. I think I'm hooked on them. :)

OOPs - forgot to actually attach the photos. The cards are much more vibrant in person. I just didn't feel like dealing with the scanner tonight so I used the camera. I might keep "shopaholic" - haven't decided yet.... she was my first bird lady... you know.:)

Whoopsie! I almost missed this collage-a-thon! I kept thinking there was something I was forgetting ...

Terrific cards so far everyone! I'll be back when I have something to trade. Is anyone doing inchies this time around? Just curious ...

Tamrantula
02-04-2010, 12:11 PM
Inchies, twinchies and rinchies are all fine...just make sure you mark them as such so traders know what they are getting!

You don't have to trade inchies for inchies...just agree between the traders what you feel is a fair trade.

Tamrantula - I just noticed that our birds are even both yellow. That's eary - we were sharing a muse. I am hooked on these little birds and will probablly play with more today. I picked up a How to Raise Parakeet book at the thrift store recently and have been cutting them out like a mad woman! :) Love the themes - I am having fun with layers and text! :) Now to go drink more tea....

Hey Tamrantula... torn text page technique is gluing down text page/phone book page, taking masking tape and laying across card, then lifting up - which brings some of the paper with it. Then tint with distress inks, or paint a light cover of acrylic paint and wipe it off. The torn area accepts the color differently than the non-torn. It's kinda cool. :)

*runs into the room, handing out envelopes and pens to all the CAT players*

Here is a suggestion I stole from someone during an earlier CAT (Char, maybe??):

When you agree to a trade, mark the person's name on an envelope and put the card into it. You may have to go back later to finish the backing or whatever...but, at least you have a start on staying organized with what goes to who. Sometimes the trading gets fast and furious, and it helps to have a system as you go!

Dina! That is the coolest chunky ever! What do you use for the "card" part of a chunky?

Ok, so sitting and eating some Dove Chunks, I found that they had "Promise Messages" inside the wrapper. How cool was that. Well, the following cards reflect how cool with the sayings and then using the pretty orange wrappers on the 3rd one.

Also, card #1 is my official 100th card made. Yay!

OK these are dry enough to upload now - the rest have to dry overnight but I've got a whole bunch to upload tomorrow.

These cards are so dimensional that they are not scanning well. The cool background paper was a extra gift from a fellow trader - THANK YOU! The silver and gold shoes are die cuts. They really do look much better in real life.
