We'll have the All Types of Art a-Thon Weekend on May 21-23.

Co-hosted by Chardonnay1965 and sniisk. 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 May 21, 2010 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday May 23, 2010

Itís a marathon create-your-favorite-art weekend, done over the same day and time in each time zone.
Itís 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: ATCís, chunky pages, 4x4ís, 4x6ís, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rolos, gothic arches, post cards Ė 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, thatís absolutely okay!)

Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE, and it is OPEN THEMED. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm Chardonnay or myself, or post your questions to the thread.

Anyone going to play?

P.S. This is just a count down thread. Our official thread is coming later.

I think I may play along. I had a lot of fun on the ZAT.

Sounds great! Maybe it will give me inspiration to work on some cards I owe and complete others that are in limbo. Thanks for being our host once again, Sniisk! I always marvel at how many cards you make AND answer questions AND mentor folks during the entire weekend. You're amazing! :yes:

05-17-2010, 10:09 AM
You're amazing! :yes:

I'm just a bit too addicted :).

I should have some of my swaps out of the way by then and hope to play for part of the weekend at least.

Oh MY APOLOGIES! Forgive me, Chardonnay! :shocked: Sorry for not including you in my thank yous for hosting this event. You and Just Ducky did a fabulous job with a similar event about a month back. :yes:

Yes - we would be lost without both Chardonnay and Sniisk! And everyone else who does these weekends for us that are so much fun. Kudos all around to those that make this site what it is. Thanks for the reminder, Bluelotusflower, of how deserving they are of our thanks.

Is it Friday yet? :err:

05-19-2010, 02:52 PM
I wish it could be :). Still two days at work until I can start creating again. And I realized today we'll have an exam in the evening on Friday. And I should be the supervisor. Great... I need to take a pen and paper to the exam hall so I can draw something when I have to sit there. I think it's not allowed to take all my collage stuff there...

05-19-2010, 11:58 PM
Yes..thank you to our hosts...I am planning on joining in on the fun!

05-20-2010, 06:58 AM
Whoo-hoo! I plan to join in as well. Not sure what I will be creating this weekend ... but I'm sure it will be lots of fun!

All new people are very welcome :)!

IF all goes according to plan, I'll be playing right along side you all. I have some goodie bags I'll be offering, ATCs and perhaps a chunky page or two as well.
I'm ready for it be Friday NOW!

05-20-2010, 01:36 PM
I'll be glad to trade a chunky page or two but I have themes and do not want to collect stray pages of other themes... :unsure: Maybe some of you will just want to set up a trade with me?

Here are my books ... (4x4 I will bind in the top left corner)

1. Ocean, Love underwater scenes, and or Mermaids
2. Halloween Witches and or Funky Witches Brew Recipies (ie: eye of newt, spider legs, bat wings, etc...)
3. 6-Word Memoirs as described in this archieved swap (http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8903&highlight=word)

05-20-2010, 01:38 PM
I think I'm making only ATCs this time. But also other than collage cards :).
