Here we go!


November Chunky Book a Thon!

The Nutshell of the THON:
-Start Friday, end Sunday
-Make 4x4 chunkies on the them of "Fall" or "Winter" 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 Fall and Winter 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 your favorite themes!

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 suggested 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.

Some Themes/Ideas (from the first thon thread)

Fall and Winter season based pages
Fall and winter holidays are popular: Halloween, Christmas

Contest: I will be giving away a "chunky supply" goodie bag... yet to be figured out :wubclub: to someone picked at random (random.com) who plays this weekend! --> Play defined as "made and posted pages in the thread" :)

Themes/Challenges: First is a theme, then a method :)
Friday: Recipe pages --- STAMPING FUN
Saturday: "Present surprises" (flaps/moving bits that reveal surprises on the page) -- CHUNKY LAYERS
Sunday: Winter Holidays -- HAND DRAWN TOUCHES

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

Looking for ideas for theme days - let me know! also, if anyone wants to co-host a day or prize for whatever reason let me know. I thought my workload would be DOWN but turns out that was a mistake! I'll be around this weekend for sure making pages but I can't be as involved as normal :) stupid work...

Beeps you are so organized! All my plans to be ahead of the game went up in smoke and I am way behind on my holiday "to do" list but I'll jump in when I can. Found some deals today at Michaels so you know I can't resist playing this weekend.

I'm sort of in a fall/thanksgiving mood right now but Christmas is right around the corner also. This time of year makes me thinks family recipes/special food also. So - you know me - I collect anything but I'm geared up to do some leaf chunkies - probably start with that. If I have time I'd like to make some Thankgiving chunkies, maybe a recipe chunky or two and then slip into Christmas mode. (All this coming from someone who has to get a million things done this weekend - not the least of which is 20 table favors.:shocked:)

jensaz
11-19-2010, 12:58 AM
I'm gonna try my hardest to play!!! I had a thought for consideration....

How about a "present" chunky challenge.. One that has a flap or flaps that look like a wrapped present, then opens to reveal the gift? Maybe it's something REALLY unusual....

Who can fit a giraffe or a vacation spot in a box other than putting it on a chunky, right?

Just a thought...

KESagers
11-19-2010, 01:00 AM
Hey - that's a great idea! Think I have a picture of it in my mind - do you have a sample?:yes:

I'm hoping to play a bit, although I work all weekend ... unfortunately the "database error" stuff happens during the time I am able to be on. It's really cut down the time I can access the site.

KESagers
11-19-2010, 12:59 PM
Oh Sniisk those are fabulous! Did you draw the animals or are they a stamp?

It's like a minute away from noon here - yippee! I gotta go start my holiday baking and then I'll see what kind of crafting I can get into.

sniisk
11-19-2010, 01:13 PM
They are not stamps, I think, maybe some kind of printed images. I got the in the art supply trade few weeks ago so I don't know the origin of the pictures.

Next some more Christmas pages.

Hand stamped polished stone leaf. There is a yarn tassel on the right side and the leaf will have a sparkly gem in the middle. (The stamp shifted a bit but I liked the bold image it gave so I went with it.)

Hand stamped blown ink leaf. There is a yarn tassel on the right side and the leaf will have a sparkly gem in the middle.

Will trade chunky for chunky.

Wonderful, I will be playing! I received a set of acrylic stamps in bird designs that are too big for ATCs but should be perfect for 4x4s. And I have amassed far too many bases (empty cereal boxes).
I feel like I need some soft white flocking if I'm going to do any winter-themed stuff, and that's something I do not have.

Nice pages so far; I'm sure more are going to be churned out!

Here is my interpretation of todays challenge :)

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/768/large/1_leaf-chunkies.jpg

This is a collection of chunkies that combines today's and yesterday's CBAT challange. The outer pocket contains a print of a vintage holiday greeting and the inside pocket contains a yummy recipe perfect for the holidays.

left to right: Yellow-traded, Gold, Green, Brown, Orange-traded

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A LIGHT WEIGHT CHUNKY. This is a single sheet of heavy double sided paper that is folded in such a way to create the outer and inner pocket. So this is NOT your typical chipboard chunky. You should be able to bind it according to your preference.

Will trade chunky for chunky

nice pages everyone! i have 3 in the words... two i collaged the backgrounds on and i put them in the oven to dry faster :) (gas oven, no heat is about 100F) :)

sucks about the issues .... havent had any yet today but i've been on and off the computer working on stuff. but once the THON ends the trading can continue, as always :) maybe everyone can "move up" what they have left and get some trades done !!

so looks like KESagers, Sniik, and I are doing some goodies. since we have a handful of players everyone will have a good shot at winning a cool prize for playing along. Also, since we have the bird-thon coming up shortly if you and your swap partner both plan to play you can see if they want to hold trades until after next weekend :) save a little postage.

Hey you guys! Cool chunkies! I'm checking in from work during my lunch half hour. I do hope to get something more finished, but no guarantees if my muse will be cooperative when I get home from work.

Cool that there are prizes. I missed that. Gives some extra incentive, for sure. :D

I have made eight or so beeswax chunkies today..they are drying and need dangles. I am now going out to dinner for my son's birthday. I hope that I get back in time to upload them before the site does it's "disconnected" thing at around 10:30 pm (Pacific time)...only last night, it was 9:30 pm (?).
Just sayin...especially for those to whom I owe Chunkies...I may be uploading them tomorrow, but they will be finished tonight.
Thanks!

Helen you are in my thoughts. I am so sorry, it must have been a shock. Martha's right about new doors opening. Well since you're not working if you need a weekend away sometime soon there's always Hood River, I'll art, drink wine and cry with you if you like :yes:

job situation is rough for a lot of people. hopefully something much more awesome come along!

here is my final set for the weekend. i'm beat! i am gonna see about playing in birds next weekend but i have a ton of sewing to do for holiday gifts (i have 6 or 7 quilts in the works). most of these don't have backs and i will likely mail next weekend.

i can make more like the bird one and i have one more tree i cut out. no more puppies. found those in a sticker box :jiggy: i swear i had another page i was working on... likely lost in the 8 inch old dictonary i use to press pages flat when gluing stuff.... ohh, wait, maybe it is in the oven drying :)

HA HA I DID!!

cat with tree - AVAILABLE
i'll scan this later - it is a collaged tree made from bits of ripped paper i painted green (old romance novel) on printed paper. tree has paper/glitter ordiments and there is a sticker (paper sticker, nonglossy, no white edges) of a cat sleeping on a chair. i'll scan tomorrow - i'm beat - but if you wanna call dibs or have me "hold" it for you to see let me know.

aww, shucks everyone! thanks for coming and playing along. i'm quite fond of our chunky weekends!

so i think the THON is over for everyone (if i do my time zone math right!). feel free to move forward pages you still have and to finish arranging trades. Remember to get your pages in the mail in the next week or so - if you are holding for next weekend, let your buddies know. if you need a little more time (and many of us might given how busy many of us are these days!) just let everyone know!

If anyone is interested in doing Gothic Arches that hasn't before I'd be happy to direct you to some templates, that are a lot like Chunkies but with an interesting shape. I'd love to do an Arch A Thon (there are about 12 styles of arches) sometime if anyone would be interested. I'll do a poll when I get back to my trip.

There's a link to the Gothic Arch PIF in my signature line (The style of the arch is called gothic, that's not the style of the art) if you'd like to see some examples.
