Good morning! More fun art!

I'd be up for extending the a-thon, however I'll be out of town and unable to actually post what I create. I wonder if I can take pics and post from my DROID... hmmm

Helen, I bet you can, I do that from my iphone all the time and they aren't that different.

I need to pick up some sandpaper. I'm using some great double stick tape as adhesive so I'm not worried about that, but the few APCs I've played with so far haven't worked well. The problem is that I'm going for a more vintage look with art, so the unsanded parts of the card seem too glossy.

I've have sanded the newer ones. I also use Stazon Saddle Brown to "pounce" on the edges to distress it. Makes them look older and seems to reduce the shine a bit.


Thanks Cynthia and Phoenix! Duh ! I aso did not like the bright White on my vintage corners, tried markers but they did not stick. After reading your post I used some brillo pads on mine and then swiped in some grey and beige inkpads and am so pleased with the effect.

What inks did you use?

sniisk
12-29-2010, 02:45 PM
I have used chalk inks on APCs. They work well.

And I have four APCs drying here :).

Wow, Robin! You've had a time! Thank heavens for the alarm. I'm glad things are going better today.

If you can get your i-phone to upload, surely this one should be able to. I can post to facebook... but no clue how to get it somewhere I can access for posting here. I guess I'll need to go read the instructions. LOL!

All the pics I've been uploading are from my Droid X! I've been using the flikr free app to do it- and then link them later from computer at home. But i bet you can upload the files straight from the phone into the gallery.... haven't tried it yet.

my allergies are killing me so i dont know how much ill get made today. waiting for the Advil to kick in as we speak. ill be around today and a little tomorrow but then we head out of town for the weekend. i wont be able to create but ill keep checking in to see what you all are coming up with.

i use gel medium for my glue and havent had any problems adhering things to the glossy surface of playing cards but if im going to paint or stamp on them i usually sand and do a light coat of gesso first.

I have not had much time to participate in this athon, but today I managed to make a couple of apc's. For these I used napkins and soy wax. First time that I tried this technique so I cannot say how different the results are from using beeswax.

Few more cards today. (I seem to be on a nostalgic kick.) I also finished some swap cards and need to get some things bundled up.

The emory board is a great idea. I've been thinking about trying some sponges and ink, too, and also wondered what tea bags might be like to brown APCs? Maybe sand them and dab them with wet tea bags to get a nice vintage brown?

those are lovely cards
i especially like the #48
does that mean that you have made 50 cards for the thon - so far?
i havent had time to do any cards, but was able to trade the arch i made. maybe tonight will be better. i was stalled last night searching for something to finish a card that has a great base, but i couldnt find anything appropriate to put on it. picky picky picky

sniisk
12-29-2010, 04:59 PM
Yep, 50 cards after the Sunday Decebber 26th at 12.00. But I have to say that almost all ten first cards were half made and for the challenge "ATCs you haven't finished".

Whew! Finally today I'm all caught up on sending out and acknowledging received swaps that didn't get done for the past two weeks! NOW I can really play......PLEASE extend the THON!!

Here are a few I managed to get ready while working on getting swaps completed and out. You know...I had the stuff out anyway!!!

Three of these are gone and only Jack and the Hunter APC is still availabe. I want to do more APCs!!! They are really fun!

here is something off topic that i could use some advice on!

i decided to make a charm quilt tonight. feel like sewing. found this pattern:
http://www.sewmamasew.com/store/media/blog/SMSCharmSquaresBabyQuilt.pdf

and will be using black and white charms from the fabric swaps for the pieced rows. now the question is - what color should i use for the solid sashing/bars between the piece rows? i thought light grey maybe. or i could be wild and do another color. i don't think picking colors is my forte so what do you all think?

(was also thinking of hosting a newbie quilt sewing swap using this pattern... maybe once things settle down some)

After looking through your artist trading cards and the website for the quilt pattern...my suggestions would be either fuschia or turquoise...you use those colors frequently in your ATCs and usually accompanied by white and black.

I usually use red when working with BW and I have used orange for a Black, White and One Color Challenge. My latest BW had red.

Thank you....it's 27" square...has 324 2" squares. At least 275 are different fabrics...then I either had to cut some duplicates or go shopping. It is "quilted" with white (and one red) buttons. Now, I'm cutting 4" squares to make a large one. It will also have some red squares in it as I have done on this one.

wow, that is cool! maybe a dark red like that would be sharp vs. vampire blood red!! i'm thinking of donating it for a fundraiser thingie... if i get it together and get my own shiiiizzznits together in time :)

i'm apart from my art supplies. will go look to see what my roommate has for ATC making. it's too cold to walk to the other apartment to get some stuff :)

I've accomplished something!

Blue Dotee Doll. Beeps has first dibs on this one.
Sewing is NOT one of my strong points! But I think the 'child-like' sewing on this one gives her character! She's made from an old fleece sweatshirt, sewn with multicolored eyelash yarn (what a pain that is to sew with!), her arms and legs are strings of fake pearls. Her eyes are two glass beads. She has a glass ladybug bead sewn to her tummy. She stand about 9 inches tall from the top of her hairy head to her knotted feet. She's filled with fiberfil.

I have two more dotee dolls in my gallery if anyone wants to take a look. I put them in "Other Art".

If you're interested.....shoot me off a PM. I'm off to make another dotee. They're a bit addicting! Doesn't look like I'll be getting any ATCs done today.

DIBS have been called! Blue Dotee is TRADED

ok ... so now I have an APC question... I used alcohol inks the other day and everything was great... messy stuff, but it worked...

tried to do a few more today... nuts... most that I did my inks got on the BACK side of my
playing card... looks ugly... what am I doing wrong... I did get 4 done that didn't run to the backs but sure messed up several others... makes my a bit....#*@#... to say the least...
oh the ones that the ink went to the back were done with Bicycle deck... the ones that didn't run are some off brand name... ( ones in my gallery are ok )

If the ATART is extended, I'll play on Friday and possibly Saturday. My oldest son is supposed to be here with his family on Saturday but I think they will arrive late in the day. Weather gurus are talking about snow for Friday so the son may not show up at all.....regardless what occurs, I can do art!

I've finished another dotee. I like the first one better. I've injured myself making this one so I'm done with dotees.
I have a couple of paper dolls to make now that are already traded.

Keep showing the eye candy, artists!

I think the limit is 200 images for a free account, and 500 for a paid membership account. Someone correct me if I'm wrong! I seem to remember reading that somewhere....

I think that's about right. There are 191 cards in the Gallery, but the size of the cards also impacts how many cards it can accept.

Good morning! You have all been creating and creating! Yesterday I did a lot of background prepping in the journals I'm using for a couple of classes that start after the first of the year, and didn't get much art "finished", but did want to share this arch I've created. It's not for trade.

Good Morning All! I finally have a little time to create this morning...Yippee! I've traded what I've done so far except for these two Alice in Wonderland APC and Raspberry Girl that I am bringing forward to make it easier to keep track. I'm going to work on some IOUs first then hopefully fit in a couple more to trade.

Helen that Arch is Lovely!

I can't believe that today is already the last day of this *thon!! Time flew by so quickly (esp. since I've been busy studing and felt a lil poor due to a bad headcold..)! I've worked om some little things but none are finished yet! Maybe this evening... I'd just so love to trade in a *-thon for once as well LOL!! Ohwell, guess that'll be one of my New Years craft resolutions then!

"Zetti (aka Zettiology) is a folk art style originated by Teesha and Tracy Moore. There's no real definition but there are some common characteristics such as static faces, striped legs, shapes for bodies, bright colours, found images, objects and papers, and lots of pointy hats. I started off drawing some basic line art with a Micron, filled in colours with Primsacolor markers and Sharpies too."

On the Frida cards, "Soul of Frida" is traded. The rest are available.

Am I the only one who is planning to spend New Year's Day bundling up cards? :) We should all take them to the post office on January 2nd and see if we can cause a postal increase worthy of CNN....

WOW the cards are fantasmagorious!
Sanna you have done amazingly many- you are our champion!
Ducky if you need a duck keeper- what do I need - a Joss stick???
Nite nite everyone, will be back tomorrow to sort out all my trades and see where I am when the 'dust settles' (actually wish there was dust here in London, just rain and greyness, fog and cold!)
Happy New Year to those who get there before we do!

Wow, it amazes me all the gorgeous artwork happening in this thread!

I'm working on art today, just not tradable art. I think it would cost a fortune to send the box I'm working on through the mail or I would trade it! It will end up as a birthday present instead though.
Just so you all can see what I'm talking about, this is a picture of the box I made for my friend's Christmas present to go in. The one I'm working on now isn't quite so large but still pretty much the same thing!

It's a handmade box covered with magazine pages that have been rolled into sticks. Not sure if I'll paint the one I'm working on now or not. Haven't got that far yet!

I will be doing some ATCs later as I still need 11 of them to complete the 365 Project for 2010. Better get cracking on that! I'm quickly running out of 2010!

No New Yearīs party for us either. But hubbys parents will come over (or up, they live on the first floor of our house:)) for dinner, so I wonīt have that much time today. But for the rest of the weekend Iīll be able to play. A good opportunity to work on some swap cards:)

I'm glad to see the fun is continuing! I've got three more to post tonight, then I'm going to finish the challenges tomorrow, then I'm just going to keep creating and posting til Sunday, yay!

So here are my first two APCs ever. Yikes! But I'm getting the hang of it, and now think I'm going to do more. Also, I'm posting my "layers" card. I think it is 6 layers, 7 if you include the background (lol). So much fun!

miloccpep - you gave my husband and myself a very frustrating 1/2 hour with your 7 of clubs card. We went through every translating program we own and couldn't find that exact character. It was actually a lot of fun as we discussed what the various components were and which radical we should use as the base, etc. It was great that neither of us ended up 'right'!

I'm astounded by the amount of art that has been produced! I think all of our local hospitals should reserve wings for artaholics so we can go and recover for a day or two after these marathons.
Thanks again to all our hostesses who organized this.

i have zillions of cards left. omg. part of me thinks i made cards people already had! i love the set i made last night - they are all still available. i can also do custom images if there is a theme you like to collect.

can't wait for hand drawn/painted to come up. not totally interested in APC but i am thinking of starting a cat deck. havent see any but if you are interested in trading let me know. i bought a fresh deck and can make any suit.

gonna quilt this afternoon then maybe make some jewelry later. or more ATC/APCs.

Came across some wedding paper today and wanted to use it (it became the background). Here is the card. When I saw how the UTEE looked, I decided to name this one Fading Dreams. And it is appropriate for MN currently. It was warmer for a couple of days (actually 39 one day!) and even the birds were more active...probably hoping it was the spring thaw! But today when I woke up it was 17F and the recent rain has made a skating rink of the street in fron of our house! So the dreams the birds had of spring....well....they are definitely fading today!

When I bought my present house - now almost 8 years ago - I made certain that it was big enough to have a special room designed for my art. I have a 3 floor house and the whole top floor is my studio. Okay, my HQ16 has overtaken the guest room and I still dye in the kitchen:spinny: Maybe I can say, that half of my house is designed for my art.

Well, at some point, my studio in the basement turned into a t.v. room/library. (Long story.) So now my "studio" is really a desk (in that same room) buried in assorted papers and supplies. One of the house projects for 2011, though, is moving my "studio" upstairs to a real room of its own with lots of light and space...and a door I can close! And I'm going to try to really get things organized this time!

Many of you are talking about a "studio". What kind of studios you have? Where they are? Are you working there or only making mail art? I'm curious to hear :).

The summer of 2007, my wonderful husband and I designed and had my studio built just like I wanted it. It is about 18' X 24'. It is my oasis and calm happy place. I don't have a TV or a clock on the wall. It's all about the art!! I have a wet studio space and a closet for storage and batching dying cloth. A lot of wall space for storage and a design wall, but big windows where I sit, with a beautiful Linden tree just outside. It even has in-floor heating and it's own A/C (a necessity since I am usually warmer than anyone else in the house!) Oh and it has a LOCK on the door and a sign that says "do not disturb unless there is blood or body parts!"

Here are a few photos of it when it was built. Last time it was that neat, too!

1) The 1-1/2 chair (which makes into a twin bed) with the ottoman is my place to dream, study, write in my journal, have a cup of something, relax. Behind are IKEA book shelves which are now crammed full! The door goes out to the backyard. To the right is my sewing table.

2) The wet area with sink, washer and dryer. To the left is the closet and to the right are IKEA shelves with lots of boxes for "stuff". In the front is my island where most of my work is done. It has 2 cupboards on each side and the green "cups" hanging on both sides hold a lot of my tools. The island is on rollers so it can be moved around the room. The easel is for my grandchildren when the muse strikes them!

3) This is the corner with my sewing table in the front and looking out the window is my computer and stuff. That is the big Linden tree out the window. I now have blinds on these windows and on the door. To the right is my design wall 8' high and 9' wide (which came in really handy on a recent HUGE project that was 90" long and 33" high!)

This space has been such a very special blessing to me and I do love to share it! Wil and other art friends have been here on several occasions! Anytime any of you are in Minneapolis - you have an open invitation to come by and play! And if you don't mind a fold-out bed.....you could even spend the night!:jiggy:

minnkel - I want a door that locks on my craft room! We had extensions put on the house when the kids were younger and I had always coveted the big room that spreads across the top of the house. Most of the children are gone now and I thought the room was going to be mine but then my husband was posted to China for 2 years.
Now that we are back I discover my craft room has been turned into the 'I don't know where else to put it' room - I can barely move in there!!!
Slowly (so no-one notices) things are 'disappearing' from that room - it WILL be mine!!!! (evil chuckle sounds from behind the black cape)
