Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Monday July 12, 2010 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Thursday July 15, 2010

What all can we do: 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!

All mediums are welcome: collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting... Goody bag trades are also welcome.

And of course we can trade :).

OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS A-THON:

Monday: Marker pen and book page text, book page text and marker pen somewhere on it

Tuesday: Stamping, anything stamped

Wednesday: "Winged things" which could include birds, butterflies, angels, fairies, girls with wings, button fairies or what ever you can imagine

Thursday: Something that moves, for example brads, flaps, windows that open

Remember this a-thon is open to EVERYONE. Challenges are entirely optional. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

What IS an ART-A-THON?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art days, done over the same day and time in each time zone.
It’s kind of like we were all together for some days to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.

HOW IT WORKS: Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting ensues. When it ends (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/296/small/1_64.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:

NEW TO A-THONS?
If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me or Just Ducky, 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.

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

Kristin,
So am I. Trying to get my desk cleaned off so I can see the surface.

Usually there is stuff all around the edges that has been there since the beginning of time and a big orange cat in the middle of it all which leaves me with about 6 square inches to work. Not this time! Of course by the time the ATART is over I'll be back to where I started.:twitcy:

I.d like to start rolos, but the thing to store them in is quite expensive. I don't have any cards either. Just a thought I quess.

KESagers
07-10-2010, 05:01 PM
Sniisk hosts the official rolo thread so she can give you great advice on this. I just use a 3x5 template for mine because the regular cards are too thin.

beeps
07-10-2010, 05:15 PM
i was thinking about doing business cards as an alternative to rolos. cause i like to be difficult. and maybe cause i have several for other things laying around.

jill - that's a good idea about using old cards. OHHH!! i have those around. some are pretty paper on one side also, so double score!

Just Ducky
07-10-2010, 10:33 PM
RECYCle..... got this idea from KESagers.... kleenix boxes and other brands.. they make great (front) background papers... just buy the tissue box you think pretty and start blowing your nose more....:twitcy:

beeps
07-10-2010, 10:48 PM
lol ducky that is great!!

most of my insides are boca burger boxes and kashi cereal. yikes! glued some paper do that.... unless someone wants a cereal themed page!

You can try to find some examples from this forum. There should be some thread about all these items. I haven't made any skinny pages or charms but the list tries to mention everything you can find from this forum.

ideas...hmmm...

I am always about layers...I love the depth of many layered cards!

Or...how about "winged things" which could include birds, butterflies, angels, fairies, girls with wings, button fairies, etc...so many possibilities!

How about something to coincide with my Monthly challenge in the art discussions forum. Marker pen and book page text. Where whatever you make has to have book page text and marker pen somewhere on it. Participants here could post pics of what they have done over there too.

waiting for the time to move, trying to get my table cleared off. ducky, you are right about the tissue boxes. i have tons of those cut. i have tons of card backgrounds made ahead. when my pain levels get too bad to sleep, i find cutting atc's very relaxing.
so i have tons ready to go. some suitable for stamping. some for collaging. so i am just waiting for noon on monday.
sanna, thanks as always for the heads up.

A found poetry challenge would also be fun . . . but then again, they all are. Just excited to see what they are :)

Bobby... wow you sure are ahead of most of us... but you cold and me ? still HOT here.

great ideas being put out for challanges... sometimes it's good to have a challange as it will give us an idea of where to go... kinda like a kick start..

so, like winterchild, this Duck could use a butt kick... let some feathers fly...

Good to see you had a safe journey home Sanna. That was a long drive. It's feels quite chilly here at the moment.

I am prepared LOL I decided on a background I wanted to make and as it had modelling paste on it it needed to be pre-done. It also has vintage book text on it, then dry brushed with acrylic paints, the highlighted with some luna lights paint and then viva precious metal colour. Now I have 4hrs tio decided what to put on the backgrounds LOL I'll probably still be sat here tomorrow scratching my head LOL

Great cards so far!

Didn´t get to make anything artsy today. I spent several hours with my MIL shopping and drinking ice coffee :) Don´t know if I´ll be able to do anything today - I´m soooo tired now. After a thunderstorm and some rain it finally "cooled" down from about 100 degrees Fahrenheit to 85 degrees - but still it´s very humid :(

I have a few little books ready to be sewn together so I will have some books to trade sometime during this ATART. I will also be doing some ATCs and possibly a postcard or two and a few chunky pages.

this morning is taken up with errands in town but this afternoon, if I can keep my eyes open, I'll be making some art!

Wow you guys! Apparently NJ isn't the only hot spot in the world - we were over 100 degrees with high humidity several days last week and there was big fear that the power grid would fail but it didn't and the AC kept working and now we are back down into the 90's. Sniisk that is just too hot to be without air conditioning! Evalila do you have AC? We are prone to hot and humid summers so most everyone here has AC - it can be too dangerous without it. Ya'll need to come across the pond and craft with me. :)

Time for me to start here! Great art so far everyone!

07-12-2010, 12:33 PM
KESagers we are on the same heat wave. sadly, i don't have AC. at my apartment, we have a window unit in my best friend's room (got it mostly to keep the cats from cooking) and my sweetie's apartment has nothing. tried to put the window unit in the bedroom... hauled up from basement, cut hand on metal thing on back... got it in the window and realized there was no outlet near the window. OYYYYE!!!

i wanna do some chunky pages. anyone wanna play chunkies with me during ATART? i'm making a "cat and mouse" themed book (cat pages, mouse pages, or cat and mouse pages). i can make you a page for your themed book. i've been doing a lot of handdrawn+mixed media stuff lately but can do handdrawn only if you like that. if you wanna arrange something, PM me :)

until then, i am gonna try to get the first half of this chapter i'm working on written. almost done! about 10-15 pages or so to go and then i can edit/clean up and get it to my "boss"! i like writing but i like making art even more :)

We have usually 1-5 this kind of dayn per year here in Finland. Now we have had over 10 during the past few weeks and it's getting hotter and hotter every day. It should be a bit cooler on next Monday or Tuesday.

Well, I'm a) used to the extreme heat living in south Texas nearly all my life and b) it's not as hot here right now, which is bizarre. We've had an unusually cool & wet summer. Of course for us a 'cool' summer is one where it's 90 every day instead of 100...

Hot here in FL too, but not as bad as a lot of you are getting.
Here's my first contribution. The background is the 'clean-up paper towel' from my last Alcohol Ink attempt. I like the towel better than the AI cards I did.
There's a slight pen line around the edge and a rubber stamped image.

I´ve bought myself a journal book some time ago and thought I could start art journaling today LOL This is my first page, maybe not that artsy, some lettering and doodling, a little collage, but it was fun just to let go and play. I´m working on the second page, the background is already done.

how do I always manage to lose the item I want to play with? I cut out some dragonflies at my friends last week, thinking they would be perfect for this. Now they are MIA, although I've found everything else I had when I went there . . .

slow start for me today as always. not nearly as prepared for this as i was for the last one so ill need to organize my art table before getting started. hoping i can get some things created. chaos reigns...in my mind...my house...my life...right now. makes it so hard to focus and create.

as for hot. we know all about hot here in central Texas. A/C is a must. you simply cant live here without it, literally. this summer has been a blessing so far though. last summer we broke records and had more than 90 straight days over 100 and no rain. this year...lots of rain and...knock on wood...no 100s yet this year which for us is very uncommon.

ok...off to try to get organized and hopefully get something worth trading made.

Sparkle-traded, Wish-traded, Joy-traded

Text background from a yard sale book, heat embossed using Red Dragon powder, die-cut colored with black Prisma marker and gold metalic rub-on.

My tip: Often I will pre-cut several die cuts at once and use plain old white card stock. Then when I need an embellishment I can color it with markers whatever color I need. My favorite marker for this is Prisma but any marker will work just fine.

it is 12 noon west-coast u.s., so i'm ready to play! i have this week off, and it's too hot to go anywhere so i may as well keep working on art. i really should be working on learning the skills of my new career path, but it's also too hot to think! not too hot for a nap, though...that might be the direction today takes...:sleep:

from the posts i'm seeing here and on other arts/crafts sites, it sounds like there's a huge amount of people all around the northern hemisphere doing art semi-nude (out of necessity) this month...which makes me think there should be a skivvy-athon! XD

today i'm experimenting with Translucent Liquid Sculpey for the first time, and playing with the book-page-and-marker challenge. won't likely have anything completed to trade today, but i'll work on it!

Forgot Shimama's nose lastnight on my first bookmark(to color it), since it's monday today i wont include it in this.

But let me know, got alot of ideas, and can make any themed cards/bookmarks.

Also trying Plastic Canvas finally! And got alot of needlepoint and beading supplies the otherday!! Neverdone needlepoint, but wonder if i can remember how to make Beadies still. Would be fun todo again, but no Starmie keychains! lol That one patteren was alot of work, and time so i don't think i'll do it again unless i get alot better and much much much faster!

Probably get in beading again after this though.

You can check my mostly traded gallery for an idea of my work too.

Here are mine for the day and challenge. The flowers are on swedish text covered with alcohol inks. The flowers were drawn petal by petal on a separate piece then cut and glued. The centers are eyelets.

The dragonfly is scrapbooking papers, the remnants of a dragonfly cutout, an eyelet, and lion fur yarn.

so words and marker... great idea... I be back short for show and tell....

Hi all. Catching up on this thread at last. It's already 9 PM of day one of ArtAThon and I haven't even done one thing. But the thon will last a few days and perhaps I can do some yet.

I have bunches of backgrounds made up and for some reason, whenever I go to create I usually start with a plain blank and never think to use any of those teriffic backgrounds. It's almost like I'm hoarding them for something special, and WHAT'S more special than ART anyway?

The weather here has been in the high 90s, but we're used to it and lately we've had cooler temps than you guys up north.

Meanwhile, I'm going to try making some art to post. I haven't been doing much art lately, especially the last month when I developed inflamation on the retnias of my eyes. Doc called it UVitis. It has affected my vision and I'm needed two pairs of glasses PLUS a heavy duty magnifier to work on anything - especially the computer. I think it's beginning to get a LITTLE better, but if it doesn't improve in a few more weeks it might mean cateract surgery. Doc hesitates to do that because I have only one good eye and if the surgery should go wrong, I could be blind and we don't want that. So, if you'd say a little prayer that my vision improves and even gets back to normal soon, I'd sure appreciate it.

Morning everyone.... I hated to let everyone know that we got a little relief here yesterday form the extreme heat... upper 70's and lovely.... short lived however as it's right back up there and going higher the farther we get into the week. Maybe that break will continue to the east and give everyone else a break. Here is my first ever chunky page/(semi journal page). It is french newspaper text, gel medium, gesso, stamps, watercolor pencil, oil pastel and markers. The back is collaged tissue and stamping. I think that I managed to get the first three days of challenges all into one page! LOL! Marker pen with book page text, stamping and winged things. :) Off to work on a few more....
Oh I forgot, the dangles can be attached or not.... Just didn't put them on for the scan.

Not been able to keep up with my gallery and forgot to put two in traded and someone wanted them. It's up to date now. The kettle blew up on me. Spent ages looking for the spare one.

jo those cats are CUTE!! are they ATC size or chunky pages or ?? they look square to me

loteria decks have 54 cards, each numbered and with a "item" or person on it. so, card 1 is the roster card. some people make alternative decks on other themes (such as fashion). i know the swap that is going on you can do traditional deck in your own creative style or you can be creative and make up your own cards.

Well I have been busy today. I did something kind of fun. For the PAT group I'm in we picked a theme and a color for our cards. I decided to make two cards for each member to choose from. So I have made 2 purple hair/wigs, 2 purple pidgeons, and 2 purple dogs and a purple prarie dog as a joke. Three of these cards are going for the PAT but the extras will be available for trade.

If anyone sees one they like drop me a pm and if it becaomes and available card I'll let you know.... I still have Pink Poodles to do after I upload the Pidgeons...
