We're holding an impromptu collage-a-thon Aug 20-22... affectionately known as a CAT among die hard collage-a-thoners. It's a party across the time zones of the globe... we're all creating art at the same time. Cool!

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Friday August 20, 2010 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday August 22, 2010

What we'll do this weekend is create art including at least one collaged item. Then post it to the thread and trade as much as you'd like! The only requirement is that you have “collaged” somewhere on your art.

OPTIONAL THEMES:
Friday: Zoo - anything Zoo related
Saturday: Winged Things - all kinds (i.e. birds, dragonflies, butterflies or people or animals where you give them wings)
Sunday: Halloween - vintage is enjoyed by a few of us playing. :)

A COUPLE OF RULES TO ABIDE BY, PLEASE!:
1. Asking for a trade: When you find a piece of art 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.

2. If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!


A couple of FYI's:
*You can compliment via the "you rock" button. (It's a nice warm fuzzy!)
*If you don't know how to post to the thread, look here (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=48351&postcount=7).
*Other questions on posting, etc, look here (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=970)


If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me, 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.

So who's ready to begin?

I can actually still see the top of my art table after the Stamp a thon... a minor miracle! LOL!

Oh I have so many other things I "should" be doing, but I think I'll find myself a quiet spot, some images and a pair of scissors tomorrow!

Miss Iowa
08-18-2010, 10:11 PM
I'm still in the "thinking/idea" stage. I probably won't actually start doing anything until Friday night. I have to work so if you see me here before the evening, chase me away! (I work from home, and it's easy for me to get distracted. LOL)

I've been working on swap cards. Tomarrow will be clean my little desk off (I mean little) Maybe get some more backgrounds ready, find some images, and what ever else I need to do to get ready for this fun weekend. I hope to see lots of people and maybe a few new one also. That would be nice.

I think I mentioned somewhere that I print images on tissue paper for use in beeswax collage. I scored big today when unpacking a box at work with packages of cardstock... several 8 1/2 x 11 tissue pages used between the packages that are perfect for taping to a piece of paper to print on. :spinny: So I'll probably play with that tomorrow evening after work.

sniisk
08-19-2010, 02:28 AM
I'll play all the weekend :). I will start a bit late but will be here at least all Saturday and Sunday. And I still have over 50 backgrounds...

I may work on a couple of swaps I want to do, but haven't signed up for yet. I'd rather get the cards mostly done before signing up. It's less stressful for me that way. LOL!

I'm starting to like these A-THONS too. This will give me a push to try more collage. I cannot see the top of my work table and my supplies are not ready.....but I am starting to feel better...finally...so I'll get some done and have some fun.

Evil Seedlet
08-19-2010, 05:13 PM
I'll try to stop by this weekend :) Will probably do at least a little tomorrow, anyway. Not sure if I'll do much trading though, mostly stamped out again XD

thepozbabe
08-19-2010, 06:05 PM
I have finished most of my swap cards except one that doesn't have due date til Oct, so i can leave that a few more days, and i have been cutting out collage images & trying to work on backgrounds. I always say that i hope to make it for Athons, but something always turns up to take up my time. My intentions are good though, as they are this time, cos i really really want to be here. I will try my best cos i hate not taking part. xx

Just Ducky
08-19-2010, 08:04 PM
lots of prep. work going on I see... and now I got stuff started too... backgrounds.. cut up some images... and on and on... but of coarse when I really get started my background paper will be ALL wrong for the images I got cut and ready...

Are they having a demolition derby? I laugh my butt off at those. :laugh:

Just Ducky
08-19-2010, 11:47 PM
the tractor day.. no pulls...not derby... just lots of Big and very OLd tractors and oh yea.
lots and lots of black smoke... these are all steam engine things... even has a steam choo-choo train and great rides around on it... go check the site... lots of neat pictures...
from days-gone-by.....

Miss Iowa
08-19-2010, 11:54 PM
It looks similar to the Old Threshers Reunion that we have here. Too true about all the smoke they give off! (And it's usually hotter than heck that weekend.)

sniisk
08-20-2010, 02:17 AM
OK, it's Friday here. I worked 14,5 hours yesterday. Today, maybe a bit less. I try to stop around 3 pm :). Then it's time to play.

And we have had two very lovely and cool days here. No wind (and smoke), no rain, only cool weather.

Tractor shows sound nice. We have those every year but only in the country side. Not here in the capital city area.

Playtime started an hour ago, but I didn´t get to play yet - too much to do. And my desk is a mess and I haven´t prepped any backgrounds or even cut any atc blanks yet :shocked:

08-20-2010, 07:33 AM
Good morning! I am SO ready to play!

I'm off at 3:00 today, and hope to start as soon as I get home. I woke up too early, so am playing with backgrounds some more and gathering images. Of course, by the time I start creating they may not be what I want to play with... LOL!

beeps
08-20-2010, 08:38 AM
i'll try to be in later today! it is crunch time for fall semester :( 1 week of freedom left!

i think i have some backgrounds from last time laying around. maybe i'll paint some pages before i head out so they will be ready... or i'll just heat gun them. lol.

Hi all! I won't be home much this CAT because 2 giants are visiting my hometown for 3 days. I already saw the little girl giant walking through the streets today ( and taking a shower). It's a huge theater performance of the French "Royal de Luxe" and great to see. If you want to see the girl giant yourself : here is a link:

In the process of making these I managed to get spray adhesive blown back in my hair. I guess it could be considered an alternate hair spray for us artsy folks but I think I need to go get unstuck cuz the slicked back adhesive look doesn't work for me.

i have a bunch of outlined crows on textured black paper, waiting to be cut out and put to use...they've been sitting there, waiting to be freed, for over a week, and seeing HHC's cards just inspired me to return to them! Unfortunately I need to wait until I get done with work tonight to start.

More on junque journals - for the record, those videos aren't mine; someone on another site directed me to the link so I'm as new to it as everyone else. :) Also, I found a group on flickr for posting pics of pages: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1453067@N25/
