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

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


JUST WHAT IS THIS ART-A-THON?
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, rolos, 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!)
5) HAVE FUN!


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 May 21 (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 May 23 (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.

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 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.

NEW TO A-THONS?

yeah ... I need to do that too. I'm always slow with the art ... I may want to trade some unusual stuff this time ... I got a button making machine for my birthday & I am already a button making freak! I may do some mini art and make it into buttons ... I may make some charms or art dolls or crazy fabulous stuff. hmmm ... I wonder ...

Well it's after midnight (Thursday) here and I have been doing art all day. I am working on swap cards and the By The Sea chunky pages. Including one for the Hostest, and one to keep I need 7 Chunky pages. I think I painted 8 backgrounds. And have 3 of the main images drawn and painted.

I better get some sleep, see you all tomorrow.

Just a bit over an hour and it's noon here. I will be at home after 5 pm but because the last 3 hours are just "sitting and doing nothing" (I'm an exam supervisor then), I think I can make some cards at the same time.

Chardonnay, stitch markers are used to mark the "right" side, stitches for later use, pattern repeats, etc. in knitting and crochet. I make knitting ones that have loops to place on the knitting needles, and the crochet ones resemble earrings. If you look at the Stitch Markers (http://www.etsy.com/sections_contents.php?section_id=5402968) section of my Etsy shop, you can see some of what I've made in the past.

I have almost four hours yet, then I can start my Art-a-Thon stuff. My kids are excited because I told them we're going to do some Zentangles for our weekly "artists' party."

No art from me yet. There will probably be art from me before the ATART is finished but right now I have 3 little tins to offer for trade.

gift card tin 2 5/8 x 4 1/4 x 5/8 inches already prepared for altering (I gave them a good burning yesterday) (6.5 x 11 x 1.5 centimeters)

inside the tin:
7 plastic 3D critters all of them about an inch tall or so
10 glass or stone beads
4 acrylic green leaf beads
metal disk 2 1/4 inch across
pc of nylon screen
3 orange plastic sticks
polymer clay blue candy cane
4 trivia game cards
3 spelling cards
3 miniature cards of various types
1 card from a commodity trading board game

not all the cards in the tins are the same but are from the sources stated

I'd like to trade these for art. If you'd like one, pm me and we'll work out what the trade will involve. I will trade internationally.

I see some mighty fine art appearing in this thread already and the games have just begun!

I have more goodies to offer and will get some pictures up in a bit.

all tins are traded

Linda4atc

dmnh
05-21-2010, 03:10 PM
You burn the paint off the tins. I threw them in the wood burning stove out in the garage and then sanded them with a scotch pad (like you use when doing dishes). You can sand the paint off of them, but it's much easier to just throw them in a fire.

I have roughly 4 million things in my stash. For all I know, could be 40 million things....let's just say I have a BUNCH of stuff! If you're looking for something in particular that is out of the ordinary please don't hesitate to ask. I just may have what you're looking for. I don't have a lot of 'traditional' art supplies but I have tons of stuff most folks don't associate with art.

No pictures needed for this stuff, but it's for offer as well.

rolodex cards 5 x 3 inches
ATC blanks
Inchie blanks
Twinchie blanks
Beer coasters 4 x 4
recycled chipboard 4 x 4
ATC size envelopes made from magazine pages and other sources

Tissue paper in various colors and patterns cut to roughly 6 - 8 inch squares.

beads
I have beads galore! Ask, if you need beads, I may have what you need!

I'll trade for art and I will trade internationally. PM me if you're interested in any of this stuff or if you're in need of stuff not mentioned.

I really need to destash and I'd rather have art than stuff. Help me get rid of some stuff, please! :)

wow! lots of beautiful stuff here already!

here I am already having drama: :eek:
I had just gotten out my supplies & started working on my first ATC .... it was storming a bit here in Atlanta. When the rain let up, I heard some unusual water noises - weird dripping and sounds like water in the walls ... then it started intensifying ... (can you see where this is going?) All of a sudden, I'm having a rain shower in my bedroom and bathroom! Water coming out of the ceiling light fixture and through the ceiling, through the walls, every place it can find to come out ... I ran out of buckets and pans I had so many drips. uugh! Turns out a water pipe burst in the apartment above me & nobody was home.

Anyhow, I had to spend the whole afternoon moving stuff around & trying to keep the damage to a minimum. (I was very fast & creative & so no major damage to my possessions.) So I have no art to trade, today. Better luck tomorrow. (I think I will do some watercolors.)

No art from me yet. There will probably be art from me before the ATART is finished but right now I have 3 little tins to offer for trade.

gift card tin 2 5/8 x 4 1/4 x 5/8 inches already prepared for altering (I gave them a good burning yesterday) (6.5 x 11 x 1.5 centimeters)

inside the tin:
7 plastic 3D critters all of them about an inch tall or so
10 glass or stone beads
4 acrylic green leaf beads
metal disk 2 1/4 inch across
pc of nylon screen
3 orange plastic sticks
polymer clay blue candy cane
4 trivia game cards
3 spelling cards
3 miniature cards of various types
1 card from a commodity trading board game

not all the cards in the tins are the same but are from the sources stated

I'd like to trade these for art. If you'd like one, pm me and we'll work out what the trade will involve. I will trade internationally.

I see some mighty fine art appearing in this thread already and the games have just begun!

I have more goodies to offer and will get some pictures up in a bit.

1 tin is TRADED 2 still available
I've PM'd you DMNH :)

Hi ev1 - it's been a long time since I've done one of these. I'll post some goodies soon.

Some gorgeous art happening here this weekend!

I have a matchbox shrine to offer this time. I spent last evening at my sister's house teaching her and her boyfriend how to make these little devils. It was a fun time had by all! We usually make inchies or ATCs but I decided it was time they branched out a bit!

This matchbox is a bit larger than the standard 32 count box. Not bigger by much though. Inside is a cancelled postage stamp, a lizard charm, a wooden stick wrapped with foil tape, a glue plastic gem, glass leaf bead, turquoise bead and a square glass bead, a glass doughnut bead and the inside is lined with green wallpaper. On the outside is a collage picture of two little girls, three chipboard disks, vellum paper and plain white paper. The danglies and hanger are plastic wrapped wire, copper wire, a glass doughnut bead, a wooden star and a little brass bell. It tinkles when you move it...kinda like a mini wind chime.

If you are interested in this matchbox shrine, PM me and we'll figure out what to trade for it. I'm looking to trade for art. I really don't need anymore stuff.

3 old plastic (maybe celluloid?) polka dot beads approx 1/2 inch
3 quotes (all quotes are different and all are written in lavendar color ink)
1 metal letter or number (approx 1/2 inch)

1 wooden scrabble tile
1 plastic upwords game letter tile

I will trade these for art. And I will trade internationally.
If you see something on the list of what is in these three tins but you dont want the whole shebang, please ask. I have multiples of everything but the majhonng tiles. I will work something out with you.
If you are looking for anything in particular, please ask! I have a ton of supplies! A TON! Help me get rid of some of this stuff and add to my art collection! :)

Everyone's art is just wonderful!

I'm taking a bit of a break. Teaching my kids how to do Zentangles. They are also just coloring some stuff as well.

I'm working on a Zen Bear ATC, and then plan on doing a couple of Knittin' Kittens.

Created for the ATART this weekend. These are hand made tissue paper flowers. Took a little longer than expected but they were fun to make. The layers of tissue paper are brayered with ink, then the fowers are die cut and each layer has to be pulled apart. The flowers are attached with a decorative brad in the center. I'll trade a flower for an ATC or other similar piece of art. ATART participants get first dibs on these and for now I am not able to take special requests as these take a bit of time and energy to create. Please PM me if you are interested.

it's this weird stuff watercolorists use to block off areas they don't want to paint. It's a liquid that dries into something rubbery. It protects the surface underneath. You paint it on, wait for it to dry. Then paint over it. Once the painting is dry you rub it off.

I already have a couple more planned.... I made the mermaid for myself, her tail wraps around to the back. The little dominos have two holes going through them from side to side, I think so they can be strung as a bracelet. I'm not sure where I got them but I only have a few, I wish I had more. I am going to make a necklace out of them.The dragonfly is for friend.
