08-06-2010, 04:39 PM
Ok guys I hope I have done this right. This is the official thread... I may need help from those of you who are more experienced.. I just wanted to play and share and there are a few of us keen so lets go!! We can kind of make it up as we go along.... anyone want to put out a challenge? I am learning to use colored pencils so am trying to do more drawing but I will do all sorts!! Anyway pitch in and help me get this right pretty please :)

Thanks so much for playing :)

08-06-2010, 04:42 PM
Fun! Fun! Fun! I'm going to go get some backgrounds made. The Halloween themes I'm collecting are: Bats, Cats, Spiders, Pumpkins and Candy.:)

Are we doing ATCs only or anything goes?

08-06-2010, 04:52 PM
Whoopeee..... we'are playing...!! Anything you like long as its a bit dark and spooky!!!! I will try and make you some things for your collection.... I love Bats.. I made a cat for one of the swaps but could do more... maybe I should post what I've made so far for the swaps... there are some in my gallery!! I think Day of the Dead stuff could come into it too as its the same kind of holiday!!

08-06-2010, 04:56 PM
Oh cool! I can't wait to see what you create!

08-06-2010, 05:02 PM
OK here are a couple for the Happy Halloween swap... hope they're happy enough!!

08-06-2010, 05:04 PM
The colours haven't scanned too well... as usual think I need to calibrate my scanner or something!!!

08-06-2010, 05:25 PM
There are more in my gallery too :)

08-06-2010, 06:22 PM
Ok as I started this I am going to give it my all..... I am going to make some encaustic backgrounds to start with today....! Ducky inspired me when she asked me to make some so I have the iron and stuff all out already! Report back soon...hopefully unburned!!

08-06-2010, 06:40 PM
Wish I could pop over and watch you - that's an art form that I'd love to see done in real life.

08-06-2010, 06:53 PM
Well that was huge amounts of fun!!! Now to find some pictures in the wax :)

08-06-2010, 06:55 PM
I wish we could all play together... I have only just started doing it but need to get more wax, its so hard to get stuff like that here in NZ.... I just kind of make it up as I go along... haven't really done any special techniques yet and I only have an iron..no stylus. I have some of the first ones I did in my gallery...

08-06-2010, 06:55 PM
Oh boy! Glad I checked in..I plan to make 4x4 chunky pages (of course), anyone else?
The Halloween themes I'm collecting are trick or treaters, cats, pumpkins, nothing gory/bloody. Probably won't have anything ready until tomorrow morning.

08-06-2010, 07:02 PM
Yay Ginabee!!! I have never made a chunky...maybe I'll make you one..my first!! Are they double sided or just one sided? Tell me what I need to do..like rules of chunky for you!!! can I put things on it....taggles and stuff?

08-06-2010, 07:05 PM
Thanks for the big welcome! Chunky page 4x4", one sided art, back side simply done with paper/paint and your signature/username. Yes, danglies etc. I'm so excited about this THON. Trick or Treat smell my feet give me something good to eat, lol.

08-06-2010, 07:14 PM
Aaaaargh! A Halloween-a-thon?! Be still my spooky heart. If I weren't going out of town, I'd be creeping you all out big time.

Have a BOO-last!

08-06-2010, 07:19 PM
Awwww well we could have another one nuttynanner..lurk with us if you can :)

08-06-2010, 07:32 PM
Hey, I found you all ... I just had a bunch of thunderstorms come blasting by & now I am ready to play.

08-06-2010, 07:33 PM
See we have our halloween avatars out..cool stuff Ginabee!!

08-06-2010, 07:42 PM
Thanks winterchild....gathering some stuff up. Do you want an ATC or chunky?

08-06-2010, 07:51 PM
Oooh.... I never had a chunky.... maybe I should!! I don't mind whichever you prefer... and thanks!!! Gonna see if I can spot some chunkies now see what they are all about....

08-06-2010, 07:52 PM
Yay Chaosatlanta... thats really setting the scene!!! Pouring with rain here..... gonna light the fire and make soup soon :) Among the arting!

08-06-2010, 07:56 PM
I ran off to grab my hat and broom. I need a little magic to get the artsy mojo started.

08-06-2010, 08:04 PM
Ohhh, cute Chaos!

08-06-2010, 08:31 PM
Love your ecaustic art Winterchild! It's beautiful! I'm thinking I might need to wait until our temperatures cool here before I ask to trade you for it. My mailbox has been getting really hot in the sun these days. Such a hot summer in so many places!

Here are my first two. Halloween background paper with various die-cuts and punch art.

Happy Howloween

A Little Batty-traded

08-06-2010, 08:43 PM
Wow.. I love them..the Battys are awesome..... Chaos.. I lurve your avatar.... I think its so cool that we all have our witchy sides on show :) Gonna make some spells :) I have a big pot of leek and potato soup on the bubble.... *YUM*

08-06-2010, 08:45 PM

08-06-2010, 08:59 PM
The skelly one is a spell..... :)

08-06-2010, 09:01 PM
ooh! I'm loving all of the Halloween cards winterchild & Kristin!
I'd better get busy!

08-06-2010, 09:03 PM
Your backgrounds are so cool!

08-06-2010, 09:06 PM
Spooky....and cute!

08-06-2010, 09:39 PM
They are just painted stuff I think, and gel pen and transparencys of photo's I took of my house!! have to go pick up my daughter now in the floods!! back and raring to go soon!!

08-06-2010, 09:51 PM
Just printed off some of my old citrasolv backgrounds in halloween colors. Did one sheet in glossy and one in matte so I'll see what I can do with them tomorrow. I have 2 pumpkin cards with the glue drying - maybe I can upload them before bedtime.

08-06-2010, 11:09 PM
Keep the fires burning and don't let the soup boil over.. :)

08-06-2010, 11:11 PM
did you scan the citrasolve backgrounds? I can't get that stuff here :( I just went into this kind of all sorts store that has the odd craft and fabric thing and found some Crackle Medium....gonna try that for spookiness!!

08-06-2010, 11:40 PM
Yes - once I had gone through all that trouble to make them I scanned the best ones and then with digital manipulation I got some really bright colors. Citrasolv is an orange based cleaner so if you can find a cleaner that is organic and orange based it might be similar enough to work.

Here are 2 more:

Scare Crows #1-traded and #2

Think I need to call it a day.:sleep: I'll pop in tomorrow when I can.

08-06-2010, 11:45 PM
Very cool...you should eneter the Counting Crows swap with these :) I did find some orange based cleaner..cleaner stuff which I purchased at great expense but it had grit stuff in it...!!! The cleaner has to have Limone D (sp???) in it I think to work... found this by trial and error!!

08-07-2010, 12:35 AM
Ack! :swoon: I did not know this was going on!!!!!

I want to play!!! :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

Right now I'm on no sleep...granddaughter was in ER last night and again today...heading to bed but should have some time to play tomorrow and maybe some time on Sunday.

As luck would have it....I just got done trimming a bunch of paper and inking it for a bunch of Halloween chunky pages! Maybe I can get some of them done this weekend to trade with any of your doing Halloween chunkies!!! :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

Just Ducky

We haven't had any rain after June 15 or something...

08-07-2010, 03:09 PM
It has been too hot day here, again. I had a migraine and couldn't do anything. Hope it will be better day tomorrow, but I know it's going to be quite much hotter.

08-07-2010, 03:40 PM
I don't like the heat and certainly don't miss the high humidity we used to get where I lived in England... Where I live in NZ we rarely get that humidity which makes heat so unbearable!! I have always loved winter tho....

08-07-2010, 03:57 PM
Love your cards Chaosatlanta.... :) Got some almost finished.... crackle glaze is proving to be a challenge!

08-07-2010, 04:26 PM

08-07-2010, 10:36 PM
I am so mad. Our Internet was down all day. I only saw this this morning and I was reading the thread and when I went to go to the next page nothing. Looks like you have been creating some great art today. I see if I can get in on this tomorrow. I is hot here, but we need hot as we are in the middle of harvest. I will be luking for this evening.

08-07-2010, 11:01 PM
Ok, here's a chunky I just made. I've been planning this one for awhile now, but am not really happy with it. I think I'm going to re-do it. I don't like the placement of some of the stamps. And not crazy about some of the coloring. Although the coloring looks better in hand...my scanner washed it out a bit.


Just Ducky
08-07-2010, 11:22 PM

08-08-2010, 01:30 AM
I have started the backgrounds for two haunted house chunky pages. Other than that, I'm just having a hard time getting into Halloween. Our summer weather has only been here for a couple of weeks and I'm not ready to let it go and think about fall! LOL :D

08-08-2010, 01:53 AM
I'm working on some vintage halloween ATCs and Chunkies. Theresa I think your chunky is really great! Can't wait to trade with you all tomorrow!

08-08-2010, 03:02 AM

08-08-2010, 03:49 AM

Good Mornin', still waking up!

08-08-2010, 10:18 AM
I'm enjoying all the great work...but had to turn the 'studio' into the 'sewing studio' to work on a Quilt Challenge.
I'm in the process of cutting over 300 BW fabrics to get 1-2"x2" square of each fabric....I have cut lots of Skeleton fabrics...close as I'll get to Halloween right now.

08-08-2010, 10:29 AM

Bah, How did I miss this? Halloween is the best holiday over; one of maybe .. 2 that I actually ever do something for. I do have a hard time getting into the spirit though until September. It's still Summer now to me, and Halloween is for the fall (in my mind anyway.. I'm afraid of burning myself out on one of my favorite things in the world) :) Awesome cards though guys!

08-08-2010, 05:01 PM
We can have another one later Evil Seedlet.... propose a date someone... lets get it on the calendar.... I did this on the spur of the moment because there were so many halloween swaps running :) Thanks for showing up here!!!

Maybe one the weekend before Halloween ? A nice loonngg one from Thursday-Sunday (Oct 21-24th?) with contests/challenges and prizes? That way we'd have tons of prep time for contest/theme ideas and it would be right in the middle of the season for it.

08-08-2010, 05:24 PM
Yeah...sounds good...or maybe 2 weeks before to allow for trades? What do you guys think? Long is gooood... excpet it's gonna be Spring here....blast it LOL!!!!

Evil Seedlet
08-08-2010, 05:30 PM
Oo Yeah, two weeks would be better so people can maybe get their cards before the holiday is over with, heh.

Really fabulous! Hard to believe it's your first!

08-08-2010, 07:12 PM
Great cards and winterchild that's an awesome chunky! Love all the ribbons and you got the theme right on...

Hey Kristin, we posted at the same time, lol.

08-08-2010, 07:17 PM
Great minds . . .

08-08-2010, 07:18 PM
Watch out, WC, they are addicting!

08-08-2010, 07:18 PM
We did it again, lol.

08-08-2010, 07:25 PM
I just woke up from a nap :daydreaming:...Great surprise there winterchild...I'd love to be in on more Halloween a thons. I have a lot more ideas that I didn't get to work on, yet.

08-08-2010, 07:36 PM
Oh but we have to have more... I nned more pages for my Halloween Chunky :)!!!!

08-08-2010, 07:39 PM
I have new alcohol inks that I haven't tried yet! WC, is that what you used on your ATC's background?

08-08-2010, 07:45 PM
I used all kinds of things....the top two are encaustic and the bottom one is a mix of acrylic paint. texturing and god knows what else. Alcohol inls make really cool backgrounds tho... I think I have some somewhere in my gallery!!!

08-08-2010, 07:53 PM
Well, I just noticed this thread....a little late! Maybe next time!

08-08-2010, 07:55 PM
Yay please Skyjules..it was very last minute, but we have made some great art and I have a new addiction to boot!!! Planning a long one, early to mid October!!!

08-08-2010, 08:06 PM
Woo hoo, can't wait for the next go round on Halloween a thon!
WC, I like the effect you get with encaustic wax with the ripples...
Your cards have depth.
Hard to believe you're in Winter and we're baking in the upper 90's here.

08-08-2010, 08:47 PM
these are for a swap i am in but i thought they were fitting to post since i finished them this weekend...

08-08-2010, 09:06 PM
Great chunky house pages! You really cranked them out.

08-08-2010, 09:09 PM
thanks.. might add alittle to them before the hit the mail..

08-08-2010, 09:28 PM
Here are my 2 chunkies:

Black Cat chunky, Going Batty chunky

The cat on the Batty chunky is popped up with foam tape and is holding punch art bat danglies.

Have a few more Halloween ideas for chunkies but I think I'll have to save them for our October marathon since I'm running out of steam.

08-08-2010, 09:34 PM
More loveliness!!! So glad we did this!

08-08-2010, 09:56 PM

At both you can make ATCs or chunky pages or whatever... so that would be a good time to be making and trading Halloween chunky pages too. Just sayin'. :)
