View Full Version : One Day Crow/Raven/Blackbird a-thon

08-23-2010, 12:01 AM
Okay... we're thinking it would be fun to have a one day Crow/Raven/Blackbird a-thon, sometime in the near future.

What we'll do is take that day and create some Crow/Raven/Blackbird themed art. ATC's, 4x4 pages (chunky or not) inchies, twinchies, journal pages... whatever art strikes you on the theme. And whatever media you choose... hand drawn, painted, collaged...

So pick a day from the list so we can determine the best time for all to play.

Wed Sept 1
Monday Sept 6 (labor day in US... and the final day of the Found Poetry a-thon)
Sunday Sept 12
Sunday Sept 19

This poll closes Thursday Aug 26 at 9:02pm Pacific Time, so get your vote in now! :)

Who else thinks this might be fun?

08-23-2010, 03:22 AM
Great idea !! Yes, it might be fun !
Personnally, I need some time to catch the crows where they are !...1st september would be too early, I think...
The 13th or 19th ...anyelse, for me. Voted !

08-23-2010, 07:27 AM
What a great idea HHC, I have been admiring your crows in the gallery! ;)

08-23-2010, 09:43 AM

08-23-2010, 01:55 PM
I voted and the Wednesday is best for me but I'll try to jump in what ever day you have it.:yes:

08-23-2010, 03:36 PM
I voted wednesday. I don't know my schedules too far in advance, but Weds are my day off, so it's the only one I know I could play.

08-23-2010, 07:11 PM
I voted & look forward to a day with black birds.

08-23-2010, 08:00 PM
SO... I don't know how to fix it, but the poll should read Sunday Sept 12... that Sunday is what I meant. :)

08-24-2010, 07:26 AM
My vote made 7 for WEDNESDAY!!!

08-24-2010, 09:52 AM
Well that would be a week away and surely that gives us enough time to collect images... :D

08-24-2010, 09:56 AM
I'm in!!!

08-24-2010, 03:02 PM
No problem for me, ever day you'll decide, I'll try to jump in it !

08-24-2010, 08:04 PM
Anyone else want to make their opinion by voting? :D

I am open for any of the dates... so don't think I will vote for or against any of them...
just name the day, and me and this yellow duck will be ready with some black birdies...
at least I hope so... finding a few images...

08-25-2010, 12:28 PM
Wednesday Sept 1st is ahead by two...

08-25-2010, 12:48 PM
http://smileys.sur-la-toile.com/repository/F%EAtes/Q_DANC%7E1.GIF Okkkkeyyy ! That's allright ...I' m going to catch some crows, now ! Yep !...

08-25-2010, 02:01 PM
Oh no...there is a tie! Come on Wednesday!!!

08-25-2010, 02:37 PM
If there is a tie... can we do two days? :laugh:

08-25-2010, 04:03 PM
Oh yes - I think one day would not be enough!;););)

08-25-2010, 07:05 PM
Fun idea!
I voted for Sunday the 12th (the 19th, I'll be at Mt. Rainier)
Wednesday the first, I work 8 hours and have a cavity filled...so I could look only look at the wonderful birds!

08-25-2010, 07:13 PM
It looks like a three day event to me...:laugh:

08-26-2010, 01:33 PM
The 13th is best for me because I'll be home to create, but any of the other Sundays work if need be. Mid-week (esp for one day only) is bad because I have to work all day and may not get anything done as I tend to just veg once I get home.

08-26-2010, 01:56 PM
We have a new leading date... keep those votes coming in! :)

08-26-2010, 07:30 PM
I am from Chicago and our motto is "vote early and vote often"!

08-27-2010, 06:06 AM
I didn't see this while the voting went on (says poll closed now) would have voted for the 13th :). I'm available the othe dates just not for too
much time. The FPAT is going on during the 6th.

08-27-2010, 09:50 AM
Well... the poll is closed and the Sunday the 12th has 9 points so that will be the official blackbird a-thon. :)

Although I am off on Sept 1st and may be creating some blackbird cards then too. And don't blackbirds lend themselves to Found Poetry as well... ;)

You never know just where you'll be seeing blackbirds in the next few weeks.

08-27-2010, 10:53 PM
Oh goodie...some more a-thon fun coming up.

08-27-2010, 11:35 PM

08-27-2010, 11:36 PM
Do remember the Found Poetry a-thon hosted by RobbyGirl over the USA Labor Day weekend... http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?p=767700#post767700

08-28-2010, 02:17 AM
Looking forward to crows on the 12th ...yay!

08-31-2010, 09:59 PM
well ... bummer... I have the 1st off, but not the 12th .... que sera sera ....

09-01-2010, 01:57 AM
Jaw, so do I. We can have our own Blackbird party. :D

09-01-2010, 11:51 PM
I'll try to remember to slip a black bird or two into my marathoning on Monday.:D

well thanks to KESagers I now have some crow/raven images to play with...
thanks bunches Kristin... and now I playing with my alcohol inks hoping to make
some great background papers for them...

09-02-2010, 12:52 AM
HHC and I will make some quick blackbirds on the 5th! That's a deal!!!! :O)

09-02-2010, 07:54 AM
Does anybody have a copyright free site for blackbird, crow, raven images???

09-05-2010, 10:10 AM
This sounds like just the distraction I need as my eldest daughter returns on that day to Queensland (the other end of Australia from me) after a lovely 2 week visit. She has been living there for 4 years now and visits are rare and precious.

09-07-2010, 02:21 PM
Sounds like fun!

09-07-2010, 02:30 PM
Does anybody have a copyright free site for blackbird, crow, raven images???

Um... not specifically. But I've gathered a lot of images from this site which, I believe, are free to use in your personal art and for resale. You DO need to read her copyright info before using.

09-07-2010, 05:10 PM
Thank you, HHC!

09-07-2010, 07:19 PM
I will try to partake! Since I don't know what I'm doing on the 12th - I will try to get some crows gathered up beforehand.

09-08-2010, 11:25 AM
I'm going to try and play. I didn't have time to play in the FPAT.

09-08-2010, 12:24 PM
Just a reminder that the one day Blackbird a-thon is coming up this Sunday, Sept 12, from midnight Saturday to midnight Sunday! I plan to post the official thread on Friday morning.

well the black birds and crows are gathering together around here getting ready to move south for the winter... and now my crafty table is filling with crow and raven images too...
a super gal here, not wanting to use names cause KESagers is shy that way:huh: she sent me some images last week and I been scanning and making some different sizes and cut-outs.... even did some paint bucket backgrounds so I am itching for our fun DAY...

09-09-2010, 06:52 PM
Ducky - you're so smart - I need to scan and resize some birds, too...

09-10-2010, 11:22 PM
Okay everyone! The official thread is up and here:

I'm closing this thread to avoid confusion.
