It’s the February All Types of Art a-Thon Weekend!

Co-hosted by Sniisk and HHC. 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 (noon) on Friday Feb 26, 2010 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday Feb 28, 2010

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, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, gothic arches, post cards – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create.
And we'll be collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting...
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!)

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 Friday Feb 26 (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 Sunday Feb 28 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to chat and trade as long as you like.

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… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.

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_SAT_Autumn_Redwing.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 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.

From a flickr or photobucket account:

If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm Sniisk or myself, 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.

Ready? Set? CREATE!!!

02-25-2010, 12:47 AM
Starting noon your time, we can start playing... yippee!

02-25-2010, 09:53 AM
Sounds fun! Thanks for hosting, HHC and sniisk!

02-25-2010, 12:52 PM
Sigh - I don't think I'll be able to start on time. The snow is falling and they say it's not going to stop until noon tomorrow. Then the shoveling begins. It's a conspiracy I say!:arghh:

02-25-2010, 01:01 PM
Well... if you're snowed in, what's a girl to do but create art? :)

02-25-2010, 01:09 PM
Well, I don't get off work for snow so art will have to wait...itching to create so hopefully I'll finish a bunch for swaps and have some time for extras :)

02-25-2010, 01:23 PM
I have a holiday tomorrow :jiggy:. 16 and half hours...

02-25-2010, 02:44 PM
crazy day tomorrow but saturday and sunday are clear so i'll be here with bells on!

02-25-2010, 03:42 PM
I have a holiday tomorrow :jiggy:. 16 and half hours...

Yay for holidays! :)

02-25-2010, 05:35 PM
Well... if you're snowed in, what's a girl to do but create art? :)

Yep, that's the only positive thing about the snowstorms. :twitcy:

02-25-2010, 06:52 PM
So far no snow to shovel - hope springs eternal! Been working on some backgrounds and cleaning up the craft room a bit. Gettin' ready!

02-25-2010, 08:58 PM
It's snowing here, KESagers. Hope the storm misses you. I think it is tracking further north this time around. :(

02-25-2010, 10:01 PM
jeez, i only have one more hour, then it's noon on friday here. Go Japan! Hmmm, what shall i make??
Any suggestions from anybody?

02-25-2010, 10:03 PM
Can I join in? I haven't done organized art in the longest time so I can't really promise much quantity (or quality for that matter). But this will be the first weekend I'm not horribly swamped by work and I want to do something more fulfilling than wasting it browsing the internets!

02-25-2010, 11:10 PM
Checking in and counting the hours!

02-25-2010, 11:18 PM

02-25-2010, 11:53 PM
Winter storm watch here in NE Ohio through tomorrow night. It may delay my getting home from work tomorrow, but I will start as soon as I'm able!
I'll mostly be working on rolos.

02-26-2010, 02:00 AM
Well Ive had 5 hours here is Aussie and I started this art a thon with a few hours dedicated to crafting, Ive made some gift cards for another swap and some ATCs for here, will post pics later :)

02-26-2010, 02:45 AM
Good morning! Three hours and it's noon here :).

02-26-2010, 03:01 AM
ok, it's already 4 in the afternoon here in japan, so between taking care of my son and preparing dinner, I made my first card for the figure swap. I'll be working on some things else soon.
oh, and I am going to make a goody bag. would anybody like to trade for it? I'll accept ATCs or other art as well as a bag trade.

02-26-2010, 03:04 AM
Mariecato, good start!

02-26-2010, 03:27 AM
thanks sniisk! this is my first "a-thon", so I'm kind of happy about it. I'm going to try to throw in a card for trade in this weekend.

02-26-2010, 03:51 AM
It's just 10 am here. I have good time to clean the house amd then I can spend rest of the day just creating :).

02-26-2010, 04:05 AM

It is just after noon in the land of Kansas! You all have got this atart off to a wonderful start with the pretties you've presented. I have no pretties to present right now, but will offer a small box covered in silver foil tape, filled with goodies. The picture will give you an idea of the fare inside.
Here's a list of the contents:
Silver foil tape covered box is a Marlboro box 3 1/2 x 2 1/4 x 7/8 inches
9 colors of crewel embroidery thread in (roughly) 1 yd lengths wrapped around a wooden dowel
6 recycled chipboard twinchie blanks
25 little pictures for collaging- could be any subject! 25 is a rough guesstimate-there may be more
75-100 pcs of paper with word/s == I didn't actually count how many went in the little envelope
some tiny sea shells in an inchie envelope
2 Smiles To Go sayings
4 square stickers

I will trade this box for 2 ATCs or a chunky page....I like elephants.
If anyone is looking for something specific in the supply department, please ask. I have more stuff than one person could use in three lifetimes! My junk is vast and varied. Please ask!
There will be more little boxes coming (different from this one) and I intend to do some art sometime this weekend as well.
Shoot me off a PM if you're interested. Thanks!

02-26-2010, 02:24 PM
Great cards peoples! And a box of goodies too. :)

02-26-2010, 02:27 PM
I worked on some backgrounds, and now am off to work. Bleh!

02-26-2010, 02:28 PM
it'll be good ... white light is surrounding you!!

02-26-2010, 02:39 PM
Had a quick lunch and then got busy. Here are my Kaleidoscopes for the ATART. (Rolos coming next)

These Kaleidoscopes are available for trade this weekend during the ATART in unlimited numbers. After the ATART is over they will be retired. You may see a similar Kaleidoscope in the future or see this one used in a different way but this particular image will not be traded as an ATC again. Please PM me for a trade.


02-26-2010, 02:51 PM
It is snowing like crazy once again here in SE Ohio (blah!, yukk!, poopy!!) so I am headed up to my art lair to CrEaTe!!:jiggy:

I'm going to try to make a few bracelets to trade for HD/HP cards, microscope lens pendants or other like jewelry and will post as soon as I get them done!;)

02-26-2010, 03:08 PM
These Kaleidoscope Rolos are available for trade this weekend during the ATART in unlimited numbers. After the ATART is over they will be retired with the exception of any rolo that hasn’t trade. An untraded rolo will be offered after the ATART as a limited edition of one. You may see a similar Kaleidoscope in the future or see this one used in a different way but this particular image will not be traded as a rolo again. When you PM me for a trade please let me know if you want it flat or circular.

In the meantime, if anyone sees ANYTHING in my availables that they'd like to trade for I'm up for it! ;)

Oh my goodness, look at all the action happening here already. :) Splitting time between housework and art play...

I have a couple of things drying right now. Not sure I'm happy with them.

But you all are doing great!!!!

Help!!! If I traded one of my cards, how do I change it in my gallery to ATC for Trade to ATC traded so it doesn't look like it's available anymore??

02-26-2010, 07:17 PM
Alana click on your card as if to view it and in the upper right corner you'll see a choice to "Edit", click on that then change the status of your card. Hit continue and go through to re-save the edit.

Here's a bit of silly fun from me

P.S. Cat #2...his eyes look funny because the eyes are actually those 'page bubbles' that are cat eye shaped, so the flash made them 'glare'

"Wait, WAIT!!!! Is everyone going to bed? I just got here!!!" :wideeyed:she cries as she dashes into the ATART forum, snow dripping from her hair.

"I'm ready to play!!! Oh, .... yeah,... I guess I have to go MAKE something first before I can trade..... never mind." :embarrassed:She slinks away to her craft room. As she turns the corner, she whispers, " nighty night, Joss and Tinka. hope I didn't wake you... ssssshhhhhhh":wubclub:

I'm making rolos. If anyone has a particular request, pm me!!.

02-26-2010, 08:57 PM

I've been working on these guys. What do you all think????
These guys aren't for trade. I wanted to show you what I'd done though.
All the little pieces are junk from small appliances and copper wire that came out of a vacuum sweeper motor. The glue isn't quite dry on the standing one but it will be clear when it is dry.

Winding down here for the day. Have a good night everyone - see you tomorrow!

02-27-2010, 12:44 AM
Oh my gosh! You have all been wonderfully busy creating! I'm impressed with all the art!

I'm home from work, fed and hoping to have enough energy to actually create something tonight.

02-27-2010, 12:52 AM
Good night all. Tomorrow is an early day for shoveling. :swoon:

02-27-2010, 12:55 AM
I've been to my sister's house next door for fried chicken and coloring.
Before my nephew showed up to fetch me, I was in the process of making another art doll. This one is for trade if anyone is interested. I see this one as 'not yet done'. It would be fun to dress this naked baby up, I think. But no time for me to do it. So if you feel the inclination-it's yours. We'll figure out something in trade.
I made these two ATCs after fried chicken.
Both are for trade.
I'm whooped! I'm going to bed. I'll be back in the morning to answer any PMs and to check out the eye candy that arrived while I was sleeping!
Happy Dreams Everybody!

Good night, bluelotusflower!
Sorry about all the snow everyone is getting. We have had absolutely none this year, so you are getting a bit of ours, I guess.

Wow Jules I haven't had a Lemon Drop in years, that sounds quite yummy!

Good morning! I´m up and back again. Don´t know how much time I´ll have to play today as my sister and her hubby are coming over today. But I´ll do as much as possible :huh:

02-27-2010, 04:26 AM
I made one rolo yesterday. Because the back side is so simple, it fits quite well in a flat and a circular rolodex. If you look very close, there are some very little letters on the back side and it fits only in a flat rolodex.

here are some more, can anyone tell me why some of these wont upload to my gallery, they keep giving me an error saying they are the wrong type of file????? they are jpg

02-27-2010, 05:07 AM
neca84, the size of your cards isn't too big. Can you try to change the names and then upload again? Just test if there was some kind of name conflict.

02-27-2010, 05:13 AM
I changed the names but they still wouldnt upload, this is the error

Sorry, neca84: Bad File - No File or File is too Large or of the Wrong MIME Type

the butterflies card uploaded but the other 2 didnt and the same thing happened with my 2 wordsworth cards grrrrrrr

02-27-2010, 05:20 AM
Because I don't know how this forum works I can't help much. It can't be the size because the butterfly cards uploaded and it was the largest file. And we can say you have a file :). Then it has to be the last choise "the Wrong MIME Type". You can try to use a file name without spaces (it should change the situation but you can try) or make a copy from your image and try to upload a copy not an original image. I had similar problems some months ago but it was just some hours and then my images worked again.

02-27-2010, 05:48 AM
I can't beleive I didn't know this was on... and now that I do why am I still at my computer and not my craft desk? Looks like I'll only have Sunday to create art now but hopefully I'll get something done to share with you all.

02-27-2010, 05:56 AM

I knew there would be a lot of gorgeous art posted this morning when I got back here! I wasn't disappointed! Beautiful work, everyone!

I have been making more art dolls this morning. These guys still look 'not yet done' to me. I suppose they could be left 'as is' and still be considered an art doll but I really think they need some clothes or something! I'm offering these 'as is' though and if anyone wants on, shoot me off a PM. All 4 four of these are for trade. Just tell me which beer brand you like the most!
Thanks for looking!

Available art moved

To Thine Own Self Be True - dragonfly. I liked the Covet quote, and thought it fitting since dragonflies have a short life span. Then I thought of the Shakespeare quote and you get the answer.
this is a postcard - not for trade.
flower is for project 365 - day 58 but it is available for trade.

02-27-2010, 04:56 PM
A couple more:

Wow, what a crowd. I wasn't able to get started on this yesterday but today's plan is to alternate between drawing and reading for school - let's see how well that works out.

Here's the first one (sorry for the cruddy scan, all I have is a camera at the moment):


02-27-2010, 06:02 PM
I have family in town but I'm working on a few cards. This is in my Gallery now.

02-27-2010, 06:05 PM
just had a look around, what fantastic art floating about, wow, a real feast for the eyeballs.

02-27-2010, 06:07 PM
Here are a couple more fruits and sunflowers.

02-27-2010, 06:48 PM
Great stuff posted!! I need to get faster!!! I took a long run this morning and it wioed me out until now...but here is one anyway!

02-27-2010, 06:49 PM
Wow! There is some incredible art going on! I'm just checking in on my lunch half hour, won't be home until around 7pm. Can't wait to get playing though.
I'll take a picture of the washer necklace I made for today's demo, and show you that I did create something today. :)

02-27-2010, 06:49 PM
Keep up the fabulous art, everyone!

02-27-2010, 06:52 PM
Just got back from a jewelry party. Bought me a new faux pearl bracelet to wear at my son's wedding in April. Nice diversion from home but glad to be back so I can create some more art.
I don't have anything to show you all at the moment. I came along to oogle all the goodies you have all shown! And what a treasure trove of goodness there is in this thread!
I've made a pot of coffee and I'm ready to get busy again. This is so much fun!

There will be a few more bottle cap art dolls coming along shortly.

02-27-2010, 07:01 PM

Gah! I was up late last night arting and watching the initial earthquake coverage - didn't get to sleep until 3:30, and as a result I slept in way too late. But now I'm fed and showered, had some tea, and the critters are taken care of. Need to answer some PMs and then it's time to play! You are all creating such fabulous stuff - I must make more so I can trade!

In the meantime, here is one I finished late last night:

40397 - ATART #11

02-27-2010, 07:40 PM
I have the following rolos available for trade. If you would like to trade rolos 1:1, let me know whether your rolodex is circular or flat and I will complete the back.



Off to make some more!

02-27-2010, 07:47 PM
Wonderful stuff! I am enjoying all of the eye candy.

02-27-2010, 07:50 PM

After canning spaghetti sauce and making homemade salsa, I finally managed to get time to draw. Its for a swap, but I did some art! LOL

Anyway, here is what I've done so far. Tho I did manage to finish off a couple of other cards for swaps that I had started earlier.

Another fabric card...the image is one of my watercolors that I scanned and printed on fabric.

Anyone else going to check out the portrait drawing chat? It starts in just over 1/2 hour! :) I think the chat classes are great!

02-27-2010, 09:29 PM
BEAUTIFUL Joyflower!!

How do you get your fabric in the printer with out it jamming?

02-27-2010, 09:36 PM
Thanks Mary! :) I bought a package of the fabric sheets designed for printing. They have a paper layer attached to the back that you peel off before sewing. They were in the quilting area, to be used for puting photos on quilts and such. Really fun!

02-27-2010, 09:40 PM
Oh Wow!!! I love it! Thanks Cheryl. That is so cool.

02-27-2010, 09:50 PM
I hope you like the Dacshunds

another post card I made earlier today. I've got some other stuff drying but I feel I am lacking a muse today. Gonna take a break and see if I can't get in the groove later.


02-27-2010, 10:00 PM
So cute Cre8tive, I'm sure she'll love it! I love them too...I remember when my doxie was a puppy! So sweet..........

I've been to my sister's house for the last few hours. Ate some cornish hen, rice and stuffing. Then we all colored for awhile. I did the ATC you see here.
I worked on art dolls this afternoon and have two completed ones to show for it. The steampunk one isn't for trade. The red plastic cap one is for trade.

You all been creating up a storm since I went away. Beauty abounds in these pages!
If any of you are interested in an art doll, some inchies or an ATC or two shoot me off a PM. I'm fixing to head to bed. It's been a busy day for me. I'll answer PMs early in the morning. Nighty night!
Happy creating!

02-28-2010, 12:04 AM

How pretty! I wish I could have seen your demo!

02-28-2010, 12:22 AM
Very pretty, Helen! Can you tell us how it's done?

Here's what I just created because of tonight's chat class. I need a lot more practice, but feel a bit more confident.
**After posting the first image I went back and added more color...pretty big difference!
