The official Chunky Book a Thon (CBAT) thread!

The Nutshell of the THON: :D
-Start Friday, end Sunday
-Make 4x4 chunkies on the them of "Summertime" to trade. Keep the left 1/2" of the page FREE of chunky things so the recipient can bind it.
-Arrange trades, have fun
-Mail within 2 weeks (or communicate)
-Ask questions if you have them - we were all newbs at this one time or another!

The Plan: This weekend, we will create and trade pages on the theme of Summertime to trade. By the end of the weekend, hopefully you will have enough trades to make/start/finish up your very own chunky book on the summertime theme!

Start at 12 noon in your time zone on Friday and go until the end of the day on Sunday. After the thon is over, you can continue to post items created during the thon and finish trades.

What to make: Chunkies are 4x4 inch pages that you put together very much like an ATC. They can be drawn, painted, stamped and glued... whatever your heart desires! Chunkies can also sport thick embellishments, like jewels, buttons, threads, charms, and the like.

Page construction: Please make sturdy pages - a sheet of cardstock works for an ATC but is too thin for a chunky. Your page should be *as thick* as two sheets of cardstock glued together. Many have suggeted using 140 pound watercolor paper or simular weight. The page should be able to support itself and be stable for binding into a book (that is, won't rip out of the book). Many of us use tag board or old cereal boxes as a "middle" for our pages, gluing cardstock to the front and back to cover it. Be careful not to make them too thick or they will be hard to bind. Chaoatlanta suggests 1/8" is a good size for page thickness for binding - thick and stable but able to have holes punched for binding.

Decorate your page backs. They don't need to be fancy but they should not be left undone. You can glue a pretty paper to the back if you are running out of steam. Don't forget to sign and date your pages on the back. Include your AFA username.

Post your creations in your gallery and/or in the thread. Let us "ohhh" and "aww" over what you made... and perhaps learn some new tricks while we are at it!

Want to trade? Send the member a PM to arrange the trade. This helps to keep things organized.

Mailing: Mail your pages within 2 weeks of the end of the thon. If something comes up in life, let your trade buddies know. Thicker chunkies and those with chunky embellishments may need a padded mailer. All pages should be mailed in a protective cover (plastic wrap or a sandwich bag work well). Please ensure you have enough postage to cover mailing your page - in the US, mail that doesn't "bend" is up charges, as are envies that are lumpy. I recommend taking your trades to the post office to be safe.


Binding/Displaying pages: There are a couple threads Chaoatlanta posted that can give your some ideas for what to do with your awesome new chunky pages
Chunky books: displaying and binding (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6518)
OriginalYouth thread with lots of info for binding & displaying chunky pages (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1294)



Some Themes/Ideas (from the first thon thread (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15896))

flowers and birds and bees, the beach and ocean, sunshine, summer outfits, picnics and grilling out - bugs in the summer time, lakes, boating, fishing, sailing, Motorcycles, the pool, Ice cold beverages, decks, wharfs, running through the sprinkler, drive in movies, going to the cabin, family vacations, road trips, Fruit! Lemonade, watermelon, pick-your-own raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, Mowing the lawn, wading pools, Frozen drinks, sunburns, lightning bugs, baseball, various music (lots of examples came up in a recent thon), cicadas, camping, summer camp, summer solstice, fireworks, occasionally the olympics, fans (handheld or electric), old-fashioned airstream trailers/caravans, dragonflies...

Questions? Just ask in the thread. We were all new to chunkies at one time or another. If you have some examples you would like to post, feel free to post them before we get started :)

Yay! It's almost here.

Quick question. I frequently use 140# water color paper as my base, and while it's thinner it's sturdy. Is that going to work for the a-thon?

Evalila

Great! I hope IŽll get to play.

beeps
07-22-2010, 11:35 AM
oh, i think it should be okay. what do others think?

i think my watercolor is #140 - i'll have to check but it is sturdy. i usually work on bristol and if i was doing a chunky on that i would prob glue a sheet to the back.

I'm going to try my best to join in this weekend. Something always crops up though, and this weekend is no exception. Although, it's a Mind, Body & Spirit event i will be going to, so it's a nice distraction. x

I'm good with 140# water color paper! It seems to hold up well in a chunky book.

When I am making chunky books, I like pages that are not thicker than a cereal box - as my binding machine will not punch anything thicker than 1/8". Mat board is usually the limit for thickness.

When I am using the pages for a wall hanging - anything goes! I can always find a way to attach a hanging loop.

I hope to find some time to participate this weekend ... a-thons are so much fun!

i'll update the first post re: paper. sounds like watercolor paper is a great weight for pages! also good to know about not making them too thick so they can be bound. ohh!!

let's see... i have 3.5 hours to go. i woke up thinking it was silly to start thons at noon.... most of us get up and come over and say OHH OHH OHHH waiting! :jiggy:

i'll be on and off today. have plans but my bestie has the day off and we have to do household things booo

Didn't realize the summertime theme was required and not an optional challenge. I'll probably just check out what you guys are doing. Don't think I really have anything on this theme (except for vintage bathing beauties).

I don't have any collections on the summertime theme, either ... but I am collecting whimsical cats and whimsical houses that could be "summerized". ha-ha!

(PS. I am open to making pages on any theme & would love to trade for whimsical cats, whimsical houses, and Halloween pages.)

Evalila - your pages are inspiring!

Love the idea of vintage bathing beauties and cats that have been summerized or maybe combine the two!:twitcy:

I need to finish prepping some backgrounds and clear a space on my table - again! Then I'm ready to rock and roll and it's past noon so I'm legal!

Didn't realize the summertime theme was required and not an optional challenge. I'll probably just check out what you guys are doing. Don't think I really have anything on this theme (except for vintage bathing beauties).

it is a very broad theme... the thought was that people could make/trade pages roughly on theme. some have put up themes they like that are summertime ish (it is a big category). during the last weekend ATART several of us noted that we like making chunkies but were newb. this weekend is a chance to put a whole little book together, getting the feet wet kind of thing.

with the last chunky page thon i read, it seemed like people were making pages but everyone had their own books they collected for - seemed like it didn't work as well as a MMH/swap/etc kind of thing would work. i know linda was going to play and that some of us are making mermaid pages for her :) if you have a theme you collect, you can post and see if anyone wants to trade.

anyone wanting to arrange specific themes off the "summertime" one for trades during the thon are encouraged to do so. the book plan is just trying something new... figure out a way to have a good chunky thon since people can be a little more... picky? (not the right word, but you know what i mean) with more specific themes they like for books in the workds :)

i have dinner plans. bestie and i have have been working on a quilt for most of the afternoon. we found out our buddy is moving in a couple weeks (job) and we were making it for his birthday in nov but want to get it done to give it to him before he goes away.

i have a couple pages in progress over at 1000's house.... maybe i can convince her to come play. i'll have those posted later. mermaid, sea shells, boat and a bee :)

Don't think I really have anything on this theme (except for vintage bathing beauties). Vintage Bathing Beauties.... Hmmm, I think that is an awsome summer theme. I;m even thinking I could possibly start a new book. :unsure: It would give people something other than Mermaids and sea critters to trade me... :D But the Mermaids and sea critters will be my first choice.:twitcy:

Well look at all the lovely art! I just got home from work, and need to clear a spot on my art table (too many projects in progress makes a mess! lol) and will see what I can come up with.

For the record, I collect sunflowers, birds, garden and garden critters (butterflies, frogs...) themes. All can be "summerized". :)

I have been checking in all day & luv all the pages so far. I have been working on & off on pages, but can't seem to come up with anything worthwhile. I will try again tomorrow evening, cos am out during the day, & see if i can come up with anything. I got some backgrounds but have no 'mojo' to make them into anything. I hate mental blocks which i seem to have a lot of lately.
Note to self. "Really must sort out my head". LOL. C u tomorrow guys, it's time for my bed. Sweet dreams. x

inspired by winterchild, who isn't having summer right now, i wonder what kind of results we would get if we created pages based on the opposite season we're experiencing?

robbygirl do you have a hummingbird page from me? i can't remember what i sent you last time! i can make you a page on one of those themes a la summer!

i'm looking mostly for fun/whimsy summer... anything really. this is going to be my first finished book so i'm thinking anything goes!

below are "in progress" pages... they are almost done, need to be blinged out and danglie-fied :) you can see each has a little seed bead dangle i'll attach along with ribbon and whatever. the bee is going to have some flowers (they are kinda in the pic - right above) under the bee. the shell one is sideways (test is in the binding edge).

mermaid is for linda if she likes it. other pages feel free to call dibs on!

here is what i got together last night. again, not all finished, but finished enough so that you know what is going on :) if you like one "as is" let me know, if you like dangles let me know. I'm gonna dangle/bling some later today (need to run around first) so i'll be back i a few

occtopus visit --- lizard! TRADED - both are hand drawn marker
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000012.jpg

butterfly (wings are NOT attached, just the body) -- dog TRADED(has big ant charm ... cause dogs love to eat bugs in the summer!)
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000011.jpg

party birds TRADED if she likes -- picnic (the "fillings" are attached and come out of the basket)
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000010.jpg

dragonfly - TRADED charm will be attached to the page similar to how it is laid on there. i did some mad collage at some point that i found. it is flowers, really pretty and i didn't want to cover it with stuff. made this charm and thought PERFECT!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000016.jpg


also, if anyone has a theme i would be happy to make something. i'm not feeling really creative and found that the pages i've made with someone in mind are really fun :)

if you have feedback on my pages or ideas to improve them (specifically or in the future) i would love to hear them. i've been working on color/value in my work and sometimes i'm at a loss. if you have tips or tricks i'm all ears :wub:

My computer is acting up and stressing me out. bleh! Keeps shutting itself off, so I'm busy making sure everything is backed up so I can do whatever needs to be done to fix it. bleh! :dull:

Since this was an experiment ... I accidentally (oops!) broke a seashell and nearly punctured the bubble during the final assembly ... it is intact and not leaking sand - but I make no promises when it goes through the mail system.

OK I have 4 new ones at some stage of drying and completion. Not sure what I'll add, but since I owe so many people for the mermaids I thought I'd give them a sneak peak so they can call dibs if they want one....;)

OK these are works in Progress... The Crab is actually the inner lining of a blue "crab" napkin, enough showed that I decided to keep it to use as backgrounds. I decided to chalk it, outline it in ink and add bead glitter. the child is a black and white image I colored and added, not sure what else I'll do to it...

The mermaid is a rubberstamped image, yes I'm trading it. :laugh: I have used it many times in many ways and have some in my collection. I drew the plants and added gems (Note the gems at the bottom left are too close for a book binder, sorry) This probably compleye except for dangelies.

The rollerskate girl is salvaged from a card I recieved. Torn paper collage and gliter flakes added so far....

the vintage girl is collaged on a sailboat napkin. The red plaque says Free Spirit. I just added some stickles glitter to her jewelery, and found poetry. It now reads "Anna made a real difference While many went to sleep"

Oksana
07-24-2010, 06:34 PM

Since I don't draw/paint well, I do use some scrapbook elements. I consider collage with or without scrapbooking supplies to be wonderful artwork and these pages take me a lot of time and care. Not sure why there are people who don't wish to trade with me because of that fact, but I hope some of you do!

So with that being said, These are, I think, very creative pages if I do say so myself!

here we go!!

first, some i finished up that are TRADED

http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000017.jpghttp://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000018.jpg

here i have the page backs - not exciting. i used printed papers but don't decorate them. i will fill out my name and whatever when finished with them, maybe draw a little. i did realized that the BRAD BACKS will need to be covered - will likely hand draw a PATCH and glue it on to avoid having other pages damaged by them in the book.

also TRADED
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000019.jpg

Here are the ones I drew last night. They are on HOLD for chaoatlanta and oksana in case they like them

http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/prichunk.jpg

oksana, i'm gonna look at your list again and try a couple more. in my brain i thought you had beach scapes but i'm not sure thinking about it now. Both of these are hand drawn marker, pencil, and gel pen (cat only)

AVAILABLE!!
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000020.jpg - Sea (i finished it!!)
http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e54/baypuppy/S5000010-2.jpg (items are removable from basket - attached with ribbon to page)

Both have handdrawn bits (shells, basket, foodstuffs) on fancy paper backgrounds. Sea also have stamping (the green stuff)

this second page needs help but i'm not sure what to do. please send any suggestions if you have them. i was thinking of putting buttons for the flower centers but the big flower, i think it would be too bulky with the wing. i could glitter or make another image to put in them middle.. i don't know. i have glitter, stamps, hand drawing, various do dads to work with

Hi y'all! Great pages.

I'm on my hubbys computer... mine shut down again while I was working on some images, so it looks like I'll be creating with no way to post them in the short term without going through major gyrations.

Keep on creating!

07-25-2010, 01:32 PM
heh heh, i don't think page backs need to be exciting, but they shouldn't be like "cheerios" or whatever you eat. i think most of my mounted pages are on kashi cereal boxes and boca burger boxes!

i'm off to cat sit for a bit. poor babies are moving and "daddy" had to drive 14 hours to finish up new job stuff so we are gonna give them some snuggle time.

i'll be back with some more pages i hope! i am taking art supplies with me :)

Great chunkies Beeps!

I think I should give fair warning that the backs on mine are not as exciting as the one Beeps is making.:unsure:

In my opinion, the back of the chunky page is as importaint as the front, if it will be in the book, when the back side becomes front after turning. If pages will be in display like a wall hanging, part of a journal page,or even framed, then it is not importain, but then it makes sense to sign them on a front(if it is an original painting, like I do sometimes). But this is just my opinion...

:idea:A Sugestion... Can you find a small beach scene and cut it into a circle for the larde flower center? Then I'd use red Stickles glitter glue (love it) and write over the word Summer, but you can do it with a fine marker if you don't have it.

chao - super cute!! hip hip hurray!

i just did a HD/color pencil scubba diving boy! however, scanner here and computer would take too long to set up so i'll scan them when i get to the other apartment tonight. he's cute, swimming with some sea friends and sea weed. did some gel pen "dots" to put bubbles in the water.

i think next up is a witch page for linda! lol it just sounds like fun to me. we'll see what happens. i think i need a nap first. made some pancakes and for some reason i am now very tired. too much heat and chocolate chips :)

Well ladies I will probably be up till midnight working on pages. I haven't made any yet today. What have done is get out my bead box and spend a lot of time playing with it. I didn't majke any critters but I may make some this week.

About 10 years ago, angain starting today, I would wear beads in my hair. I take a pinch of hair at the bottom of the hairline behind my left ear and attach a jewelry hook, much like I did on this "summer" necklace I just made. Then I make different strands of beads like I show here and place them on the hook. This stays till the hair grows enough, or the hook part comes loose then I just redo it.

as we finish up, i'd be interested in feedback/brain storming about how to do chunky thons that work well for players in the future. i think this weekend was fun, using a loose theme, but it would also be fun to figure out a good way to organize it so that it was easy for people to collect pages on themes they are collecting. maybe something like a MMH/chunkython event? i am thinking about a good way to make this work.

I will get my pages scanned here... might walk to the other apartment and just get them done. also did a little kitty in the grass!

I think a MMH chunky a thon sounds fabulous. Players could sign up ahead of time and give 3 or 4 themes they are collecting. Then maybe you could list them on the 1st post for reference. This way anyone can reference the 1st post and think hey 3 people are collecting Kitties, that seems like a good place to start...etc.

I definitely found it easier to create for people who had put their theme wishes out there this weekend.

Well I think in the fall you could do a Autumn/Halloween CBAT but if you wanted to do a MMH I would suggest taking the Host take the second post and Do a running list of participants themes so we would have one place to look for ideas. But this may end up being a bit of work the first couple of days..:D

An "all types of Chunkies a-Thon" (AT o'CAT) with open themes. Give some daily challenges, but don't stick to a particular theme. Having people mention what they like ahead of time does help. My biggest problem is with the dangly bits .. I just don't like what I end up with, so I don't make the page. I guess I just need to get some cool fibers - that should motivate me!

I've been finishing up some swap cards, so not able to participate except by oogling this weekend. Maybe next time!

If you don't like your Chunky stuff you could do a couple of things... First add what you do have in a removable way and let the recipient know that it would be ok for them to switch if they have something better. Also you could organize a fiber swap and as the host you should end up with a lot of extras as gifts.....:D

07-25-2010, 08:00 PM
okay, great ideas everyone.

i looked thought the last chunkython and the big issue seemed that a) people were just making pages without others themes in mind and/or b) someone made pages for others on their themes BUT they didn't make them pages on their themes so there were no trades.

perhaps something like organizing the first post with what people are collecting/trading and a) people can make pages on common themes that people generally like and/or b) people can arrange for private "makings" over the weekend with partners. i think putting one together where everyone will get pages to their liking and have fun making pages will be a bit more work BUT i think it would pay off well for a chunkython.

i love the idea of a fall chunkython! i see a lot of ATC swaps on halloween themes popping up.

Last two for now ~ boy is on hold for oksana since she called dibs... cat is unclaimed! both are hand drawn (boy - pencil and cat marker+)

Cute!

I just set up my book list. I am kind of picky so I have a lot of requests and do not like retyping it so I save it in the notepad on my control panel.

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


1. Halloween Witches and or Funky Witches Brew Recipies (ie: eye of newt, spider legs, bat wings, etc...)
2. 6-Word Memoirs as described in this archieved swap (http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8903&highlight=word)
3. Vintage Beauties, (not portrait head/shoulder shots) I would like pages with full body vintage images of swimmsuit, sexy/nude, or couples doing something like dancing, not just sitting for the camera. I want the pages to be mixed media and have a vintage look, not a bunch of flowery bights please.
4. (I have alot of these but still love them, so my last choice) Ocean, Love underwater scenes, and or Mermaids

Second, beeps,thank you for this productive weekend. Without that pressure of limited time I would never make 7 chunky pages in 2 days(I still have 2 more WIP..)tHIRD,beeps, thank you for holding that scuba boy for me!I will PM you about the trade!
And the last, posting my #7 finished page:"Sail".Ink pen, watercolor painting on gessoed board. Sealed with matte spray fixative for protection. The back is also decorated, as usually I do.Sorry for pure photo quality. It is actually bright and shiny..:)

You all made some gorgeous chunky pages this weekend!
I got side tracked yesterday and never made it back to offer the two kitty chunky pages I made on Friday. Looks as though this is the extent of my participation in this a-thon. My muse simply refused to play with the theme of summer.
If anyone is interested in either of my kitties, please shoot me off a PM. They are made from vintage upholstery fabric samples. Freehand cut and glued to recycled chipboard. Orange kitty has a green stone for his nose and white kitty's nose is a pc of white fabric painted with pink glitter paint. I was at a loss for the danglies....you got mardi gras plastic stars and green pipe cleaner! The back is dark green with line drawings done in white paint pen along with my info.

Robby, I absolutely LOVE Spot! He will fit nicely in the second elephant chunky book! Thanks so much for making him for me. I'm very glad the chunky starter kit has been useful for you!

If anyone is in need of chunky blanks made from recycled chipboard (food boxes and such), or made from white linen textured cardstock-- please shoot me off a PM and I can fix you right up! We can figure out something in trade.

Beeps thanks so much for hosting this athon. I wish I could have joined in more! Perhaps my muse will be on fire for the next athon.
MMH chunk-a-thon would be great.

It's midnight here and I'm sleep typing this.:sleep: A big "thank you" to our hostess for such a great idea and a great weekend!

It's going to take me awhile to get everything sorted and figure out packaging so that nothing breaks so I am up for any and all last minute trades in the next couple days. I'm happy to add to any existing trades as most of the time it's not going to add to the postage so please PM me if you are interested.:D I think my gallery is up to date and as always I'll keep checking the thread. Thanks to everyone for a fun weekend and I hope everyone has a good week ahead!

linda - your data for me is correct!

it's been a fun weekend everyone. we had a lot of players and a lot of pages get traded! wooo hoo! i can't wait to see some of the books everyone gets together with their pages!

feel free to post your "leftovers" from the weekend to see if anyone likes something they missed. i know i want all my pages to go out! well, i am fond of my kitty-pounce page! i'm gonna be heading to bed... we'll let the west coast USA close up the party :)

and THANK YOU again for the feedback for arranging future chunkythons. I think the MMH kind of set up will work well, along with having some themes/challenges for each day. i thought about doing some but i've been thoning too hard this month :) figured we could "tone it down" a little... ha ha ha!! either way, it is always a pleasure making mad artz with you all and i can't wait to see the awesome pages i traded for :)

Thank you Beeps - you are an awesome chica...

This has been fun and I can't wait to start my first chunky book with my trades. I may or may not make one more before going to bed.

Beeps, I think a Halloween or Fall themed one of these would be cool. If you do a fall theme, it's open to a bit more interpretation and those who want to do Halloween chunkies can! Just my 2 cents.

i learned that a weekend is not enough time for me to do a chunky page! :embarrassed:
I could throw something together but I wouldn't be happy with it, and I'm not going to post/trade something I'm not happy with. The ATC-athons I can do, but I guess going 3-d takes more mental energy. So I'll be on the sidelines for the next chunky-athon, gleaning inspiration and still wondering how you guys manage to work so quickly!

calluna, I had a good idea of what I wanted to do, and still didn't get them finished and posted until late today. Even with my "planning" ahead. LOL!

Maybe for the next one we can get our backgrounds started and images at the ready so the creating part doesn't take as long. At least, that's my goal. :)

I should have 5 more to post tomorrow. The sand takes awhile to dry the way I did it. For sand and those tiny bead glitters I mix it with gel medium and spread it or even better you can mix it in a small bag or a atc sleeve then cut one corner and squeeze it out where yu want it kind of like a frosting bag.

:notworthy:beeps! You rock! It was such fun playing in the CBAT! I will have enough for a little book to start, and will hope to add to it in the future! Just what I needed another addiction! Ha! I would be in for a fall/halloween one.... Keep us posted! Again, Thank You!:D

beeps thanks for hosting the CBAT. It was fun. I won't be able to mail mine out until I get to town to get some padded envelopes. So don't worry they will get to you sooner or later.

yay! i'm glad everyone had a good time. i'll be moving my "untraded and back on the market pages" up soon.

Some orders of BEEP BUSINESS :)

1- i will likely mail later this week/weekend. these will require hitting the post and, well, it is too hot here to take the bus that far. i'll have to get the car (bestie uses it for work).

2 - i will let anyone know if i am running behind on mailing their stuff. i have a couple pages to finish, one to recreate, and one to make.

3 - if anyone wants any of the below pages, let me know! if anyone wants to go 2:2 or add ATCs to their trade also let me know that. if you want to trade some goodies let me know that also. essentially, these need bubble mailers for the most part and DARN IT i would love to use up the space AND postage! pages i'm collecting - cats, mice, summertime :)

2-i look forward to future chunkythons - this was so fun! the seasonal theme seems to work well and i really like the idea of doing it MMH style. maybe future ones can include both. i don't see why it would be an issue. who cares what we make as long as we are having fun! it will take a little more "planning" to get people set up with themes and whatnot, but it will be a lot of fun. also, i'm not going to "call dibs" on hosting CBATS - anyone who feels up to it can go for it without any worries about my feelings :) actually, during the school year it might be better left to someone else to plan. my fall semesters are usually hell for me. but we should aim for something, maybe mid October - early november? that will set us up for several holiday themes, seasonal theme, and all around fun before the holidays get everyone busy.
