This a-thon is open to all.. this is an open themed a-thon..so you can collage, paint, draw stamp etc,,even uses several techs..you can also make anything..ie. ATC's rolo's chunky pages... whatever your muse helps you to create..then post it here and trade..:D:D
just grab your munchies and drinks and join in the fun....
the Duck and I plan to have fun playing over the weekend and hope lot's of you come to play with us....

Just for fun here are some challenges...(you don't have to do these if you don't wish)

On Friday: create Easter Themed art
On Sat: texured or melted crayon backgrounds... ( for texture you could use serviettes, Texture paste, crackle paint or medium etc.)

I'll add to the challenges once I have chatted to the Duck..:)

Here are my first 2 cards - I thought that on Friday the theme was Easter eggs, so that is what I made
The colours on the 2nd egg are not true as the strips used to make it have holographic patterns which my scanner REALLY doesn't like (but they are so pretty in real life LOL)

Just Ducky

OK I'll try this again~! I lost the entire post when I tried this a moment ago....I think it's time to call it a day and hit the hay!
You all started this a-thon off with a bang and some great artwork as well!

I have six little books to offer for trade. I'll trade them for 2 ATCs, a chunky page, an elephant postcard or something else you might have to trade.

I have three with US Maps for the covers. Kansas (the only one with a bookmark and the one with the least amount of pages, it was the first one I made right after midnight.), Georgia and Arkansas.
I have three black security envelope covers. No choice on those...they all look alike with the exception of the type of paper. All six of them have Russian Text on the spine covers.
All are blank with at least 10 pages. Paper might be manilla paper, penmanship paper, graph paper, plain copy paper or orchard paper.
They are about 1/4 inch smaller than an ATC. Perfect size to toss in your purse to record all that important info you gather! You could even art them up a bit more to personalize them to suit your tastes.
Shoot me off a PM if you are interested in any of these, please. Thanks for looking~!

I will be making art dolls tomorrow. Good night for now though!

Tinka - I love the yellow frame on your card. Is it one punch or did you have to punch the corners and then cut the edges to join them up? The whole card is gorgeous, I am sure your relatives will love it.

Hi Donna, the corners of the yellow frame are punched and than folded. It's a special punch to make a frame like this.

Thank you for your kind comment and you too Chardonnay!

OK, it's Dutch. I thought it but I wasn't sure because I haven't seen that language anywhere earlier. It's weird to inderstand something I shoudn't understand :err:. Easter Days is Påskdagar in Swedish.

Very nice work you all are doing on this fine Good Friday!
I have yet to make any art dolls today. My brother took me to lunch, then visiting so my afternoon wasn't spent at home where the art doll making supplies are kept. I did however take some ATC blanks and a few markers with me to go to lunch (only blues and oranges, though one of those blue ones is more green and another more purple than blue and a red one snuck in there as well) and I produced 8 cards to trade.
If anyone is interested in any of these, please shoot me off a PM and I'll get back with you as soon as I can.

woowooo! finally a weekend! this has been the busiest, most stressful 1.5 weeks i've had in years, so i really hope i get to spend half of the weekend sleeping and half of it making stuff.
so far today i finished a photo project for my step-grandparents' 50th anniversary, which will be paired with a needlepoint i'd made of the same photo (that was a much bigger project), in 2 frames hinged together. they're both ATC-sized, but definitely not being traded! the words on the photo are the chorus of "their" song, "My Special Angel" by Bobby Vinton.

looking for advice - I made a card which turned out to look a bit more religious than I had intended. I like it but I'm not sure if cards which could be interpretted as having a religious theme are ok to post. any comments??

Hey...burrito and peanut butter cup - sure sounds good to me. (I grew up in California and the food in PA just isn't the same. When I visited my son in CA last year, one day we had Mexican food for breakfast (breakfast burrito), lunch (tacos), and dinner (fajitas))

I'm having a great time doing these acrylics. Can you believe they're mine? I'm learning - quite different from my usual pale watercolors....
