We're starting 12:00am Sunday OCT 10(your time zone) and going to 11:59pm Sunday OCT 10 (your time zone). So you need to stay up late Saturday night, start at midnight and go 24 hours until midnight Sunday. Well okay, you can get some sleep in there if you absolutely must.

All Mediums, all types of Art but the general theme is 10, be it the number 10 or 10 items etc.

All you need to do to participate is create some Number 10 themed art. It can be ATC's, 4x4 pages (chunky or not) inchies, twinchies, journal pages... whatever art strikes you on the theme.

And it's whatever media you choose: hand drawn, painted, collage, mixed media...

Make your art, post to the thread (or tell us it's in your gallery) make trades, have fun!


If you wish to make a trade, please pm to make arrangements. Please DO NOT post to the thread, it makes it too confusing.


Compliments are cool, and remember you can do it by clicking the "you rock" button too!


Once you make a trade, please mail within 2 weeks. If you are running late, COMMUNICATE!

Oh gosh, I just asked if there were any more a-thons happening. Unfortunately I'm tied up with work Sunday afternoon and evening. I'll see if I can make one card (not ten!) in the time I have.

OK...."offcially" signing on! Don't TOTALLY understand the "rules" but it sounds like great fun anyway. Never done one of these so any help to understand would be greatly appreciated!:jiggy:

Minnkel, Super simple you have from Midnight to Midnight in your time zone to create as much or as little art related to the theme as you would like. You post your work here in the thread to share and PM with others to trade. The trading during a-thons is generally really rapid so if you see something you like pm quickly :) Have fun and feel free to ask questions as you go! I'm so glad you've joined us but be warned a-thons are extremely addictive!

Ahhhhhh now I get it..... OK, so I can be very very glad there is not a Vikings football game on tomorrow!!! (they play Monday night this week!!) AND....my double comfy chair in my studio makes into a twin bed so in case I crash and burn I don't have far to go for a quick nap! Good thing I'm going out today to take some photos and not tomorrow! Drive time today will probably be with sketch book in hand and brain churning!!

See you guys at midnight CST!!

One last question (well....maybe last)

Can we start making the ATCs now or do we actually have to wait to MAKE them starting at midnight?????

RobbyGirl
10-09-2010, 01:37 PM
Typically we don't start creating until the actual start time but prep work on backgrounds, and cutting out images etc is okay.

In the very special case I'm okay with people actually starting their cards today because 24 hours is a very short a thon and hard to produce work, especially if you're a sloooow creator like me.

So go ahead and get started but don't complete anything or post until midnight in your time zone and remember these special rules are only for this a thon. Other a thons are at the discretion of the host and I don't want to start a chorus of dissent or bad habits...LOL!

So I'm trying to think of themes around "10"... besides 10 black birds (lol) and my brain is too tired to figure any out tonight. I'll work on some backgrounds and see what happens.

Oh! I just had an idea! Now if I can only find what I think I have here somewhere... *she runs off to dig through the collage fodder drawer.*

10-09-2010, 11:23 PM
oh ... almost forgot this... trying to figure out how to get 10 of anything on this tiny card...
was thinking ... this is gonna be easy... now thinking... not as easy as I thought... but working on an idea or 2... make that 10...

My company never showed up so I'm free for the next 24 hours (and then some, probably.) I will need a snooze somewhere in there, but I have blanks, markers and ideas galore in my head...let's see how long the muse sticks around!

I have 15 minutes before this officially begins for me so I'm going to go make a pot of coffee and settle in for a couple hours of drawing time! I shall return!

Less than two hours for me, but I won't make it 'til the clock strikes 12. Actually... shouldn't we be starting at 10:00 instead? Get it? 10? heeheehee!

Okay, I need to get some sleep, apparently. Not that it will particularly improve my wonky humor... :D

minnkel
10-10-2010, 01:20 AM
OK, I'm here! It's been an interesting evening so far. Might tell you about it if I'm still up later and running out of "10" ideas! I have my first ATC ready, just need to set up the camera and get it posted. Do we post to our gallery and then the thumbnail in the thread as usual? Don't have too much fun while I go do the photography thing......!!

Miss Iowa
10-10-2010, 01:41 AM
I don't know if I'll be able to play tomorrow due to many household chores that MUST get done (including raking as many leaves as I can before Monday's pickup), but I was able to throw together one card tonight. I've posted this in my gallery.


Edited: This has been traded.

Very pretty, Miss Iowa!

Alrighty! The muse cooperated so I have 2 ATCs to offer at the moment. You won't find them in my gallery...just here. I went the literal route with the number 10.....
If anyone wants one of these (or anything else in my available gallery if you care to go take a look over there) just shoot me off a PM and I'll get back with you ASAP!

I knew I had a picture looking out my back door of the church across the road! This also happens to be a picture of the car that landed in our back yard 2 winters ago. I don't think the driver was coming out of the church, but the way the car is positioned it looks as if he backed straight out of the church driveway into our yard.

And nearing the end.....the ninth card is done! Title: 10 in Braille

Had heard about this technique on making Braille somewhere that had nothing to do with art. But today it seemed to be calling out to join the party. I made indentations from the backside of the card so you can feel the raised dots on the front side. Then, I used a toothpick and E6000 and just put small "balls" of glue in the indentations on the back of the card. Let it dry and mounted it onto a backing. I also colored the raised dots so they would show up.

And finally at last! .... the TENTH card! Title: Dime Daisies

Inspired by the saying "A Dime A Dozen"and well.....daisies just seem to fit. Kind of a Liza feel from My Fair Lady. AND this one comes with a bonus...a REAL DIME!! Just don't plan to spend it too soon....it is on with E6000!

baaaa haaaa wildholly!! You are certainly living up to your name today. :lol:

Is anyone going to be here for the next couple of hours (central, mountain, pacific time and points west or south)? I finally have all my chores done, ate, took a shower (I know you all appreciate that I did that--whew! LOL!), and am ready to sit down and MAKE SOMETHING. Be back soon.

You all are rocking the 10-10-10 Athon! I did sketch out a two page spread in my art journal this morning, but I have been real busy all afternoon and haven't got to color it yet. I am hoping to at least get it colored and close to finished to share here this evening. Keep on Rocking the Big 10 All!

It has rained at my house since I last posted. I guess the rain brought out the muse cause there was not a thing coming from her there for awhile! It only rained 'about ten drops of rain' when it did rain!

If anyone is interested please shoot me off a PM and I will get back with you!

Here's the one I have finished. Made with decorative Halloween papers. I have ideas for a couple more but took out a few hours for our local art group Halloween Party and then went out for a bit with my hubby.
Here's 10-10-10.

This may be my last card, as my beloved Mad Men starts in 10 minutes and it's not the type of show one can multi-task to. But I do have one more idea that hasn't shown up yet, so maybe I'll get it squeezed in before midnight.

Ten O'Clock Scholar has been posted in my gallery.

This has been traded (twice!)

Special thanks to Robby for hosting! This was a great idea.

Wish I could have posted something, you all seem to have had a great time!! I did get the first few layers of color added to the journal page, but it's not done yet. Maybe I'll get it finished and still post it for you anyway. :)

RobbyGirl
10-11-2010, 01:07 PM
Thank you all again for playing and making such wonderful cards! Thanks to the few I traded with! I'm sorry that I didn't have the time to jump on some of the fabulous cards you all made, I ended up much more distracted yesterday then I expected! There was lots of beautiful work!

A special thanks to our first timers for participating with such enthusiasm!! I think we'll have to do an 11-11-11 a thon!

I apologize but my returns on this will not go out till next Tuesday. We found out this week that our Son has to have surgery unexpectedly and it's thrown us for a bit of a loop. Surgery is on Monday and if all goes well and he is resting quietly on Tuesday I'll get returns out then. I sure appreciate your patience!
