View Full Version : Chunkies rock on January 6-9

01-03-2011, 03:26 PM
Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Thursday January 6, 2011 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday January 9, 2011

What can we 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.

And of course we can trade :jiggy:.


Thursday: buttons

Friday: handdrawn/handpainted elements

Saturday: lots of layers

Sunday: dangles and dangles

What IS an A-THON?
It’s a marathon when you can create art (chunky book pages this time), done over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.

When you find a piece of art you would like to trade, 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.

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

And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.


From your atcsforall.com gallery:
It’s easiest to have two windows open.
1) Go to your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl V) into the window that pops up and hit OK - that puts the code into your post for your picture to show up; (you paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box)
5) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_64.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

From your computer:
1. Click POST REPLY at the bottom of the messages screen. Above the message box, click the paperclip next to the smiley face. Then upload as usual. This will upload your picture as a thumbnail.
2. If you go into the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the messages screen, click GO ADVANCED and you will get the paperclip above the message box.

From a flickr or photobucket account:

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

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

I've been wondering if there was going to be CBAT. I will be here when I can.

01-03-2011, 04:17 PM
yay! i'll have time this weekend - doing exam standardizing Th/Fri this week :D

01-03-2011, 08:20 PM
theme ideas:

-- lots of layers
--dangles and dangles

01-03-2011, 10:05 PM
I'm still in a Winter/Christmas mood for sure but thinking about Valentine's day also. ;)

01-04-2011, 12:06 AM
Is this strictly "chunkies with danglies"? or can they be 4x4s without dangles?

01-04-2011, 02:45 AM
Julie, no dangles needed if you don't want to use them.

01-04-2011, 02:46 AM
beeps, I updated the challenges. Thank you.

01-04-2011, 06:09 AM
Don´t know how much time I´ll have, but will try to play!

For the challenges:
What about handdrawn/handpainted elements (the chunky mustn´t be drawn/painted completely, drawings/paintings can be cut out and attached to the chunky as well)?

01-04-2011, 06:16 AM
... and what about buttons? Use at least one button on your chunky.

01-04-2011, 09:37 AM
i like those themes evalila! and i have buttons!

01-04-2011, 12:56 PM
Thanks girls, we have the challenges now. And remember all, the challenges are totally optional.

01-04-2011, 02:13 PM
As usual, I'll at least be following this to see all the fantastic work.

01-05-2011, 12:18 AM
I have just posted all my envelopes for the ATART so now I can start preparing chunky bases. I LOVE the idea of chunkies with buttons - I have so many!!

01-05-2011, 11:11 AM
what page themes are people planning? winter holidays/spring/valentines day?

i'm going assessment reviews Th and Fri and will be doing those all freakin' day :( (at least i get paid $$ and it should be interesting). i'll try to pop in when i can but i'm not sure how much time i'll have to play.

01-05-2011, 11:16 AM
If people want to post their favourite themes here, I can add them to the first post. Then we can see what others are collecting.

01-05-2011, 12:48 PM
I think my preferences will be Winter and Valentines.

01-05-2011, 01:51 PM
Hurray for chunky play! I like Angels, Cats and Valentines.

Art By Camilla
01-05-2011, 02:01 PM
I'm going to work on Christmas and winter themes.


01-05-2011, 02:10 PM
I'll see if I can get inspired and create a few. :)

01-05-2011, 03:06 PM
I think I'll be working on Christmas, Winter, Cats, Valentines (maybe New Years and a recipe chunky or two). LOL - never quite sure what's going to strike my fancy.

Oh yes - I found some cute monster stamps yesterday so Chaosatlanta and I are trading monster pages but if anyone else is intersted I can make more. ;)

01-05-2011, 03:09 PM
I'll be creating whatever hits my fancy. I'm looking through by stash to see what inspires me.

01-05-2011, 04:17 PM
i wish i could play but i just have no time this weekend. i do still have some available in my gallery from the last CBAT. maybe if you all have anything left over after the weekend i can make some trades. have fun!

01-05-2011, 09:04 PM
I am not sure what themes I'll be working on...

01-05-2011, 10:45 PM
my themes: cats (of course!). might do some valentine/holiday pages with cats

esp. interested in FLAT no danglied hd/hp cats that i could hang on the wall (adult style arts !!)

01-06-2011, 04:19 AM
Themes I´m collecting are trees, birds, zetti, monochromatic pages.

Unfortunately I´ll be out of town today, so I won´t have time to play I think :( So I´ll have to jump in tomorrow afternoon.

01-06-2011, 06:20 AM
It's over 12 here :).

01-06-2011, 06:31 AM
Okay, we rescheduled our trip to Cologne.

About 30 minutes to go, then it´s time to play! :jiggy:

01-06-2011, 10:15 AM
Here are my first three chunkies, I haven´t added danglies yet, but will do if you want :)

Is "# 02 Mail Pouch Tobacco" for me ;)?

If you want it ...:)
I´ve just seen that the scan shows something beside his nose that isn´t there on the chunky. Guess it was something on my scanner LOL.

01-06-2011, 12:10 PM
I have something ready here but I'll post them later when I have more to show at the same time. And there's ink everywhere...

01-06-2011, 12:51 PM
Good morning from Western USA. :D A few hours to go, but I'm working on some backgrounds and such.

Great pages, Evalila!

01-06-2011, 01:09 PM
Howdy! Evalila has us off to a good start! I need to do a couple of things and then I can play. ;)

01-06-2011, 02:26 PM

Pretty pages! Like the "beautiful" text - is that a stamp?

01-06-2011, 02:55 PM
It's a stamp.

01-06-2011, 03:21 PM
I embossed some stamped cat images. Sad, but the stamp is so small. Anyway, I'll try to make some cat pages :).

01-06-2011, 03:53 PM
Lovely chunkies, sniisk and Evalila!

I'm working today and tomorrow...so I won't be able to participate until the weekend...but I'll be checking in to look at all the goodies!

01-06-2011, 04:00 PM
Lovely chunky pages!! I made a Hobby Lobby trip, today. Hope to make some chunky's later. Still working on my class art.

01-06-2011, 04:40 PM
I'm too tired to take pics today. Time to say good night now and upload cat pages tomorrow :).

01-06-2011, 06:33 PM
See you tomorrow Sniisk!

In honor of the snow storm coming tomorrow - my first chunky for this weekend's CBAT. I used a medium weight corrugated for the substrate on this - if you need me to punch a binding hole for you please let me know. Will trade chunky for chunky.

01-06-2011, 07:19 PM
you all are super sauce. i'm home for the night, ate dinner. don't have to work tomorrow but will likely go in for a little bit. :) excited to have some chunky times.

01-06-2011, 10:49 PM
It looks like it is off to a good start. I won't get to play until Maybe Friday night or Sat. I have to work on Friday until 7 and Sat until 4 so who know how I will feel when I get home I will sure keep an eye on the art.

01-06-2011, 11:04 PM
For the CBAT challenge of the day. I used a light weight corrugated for the substrate on this - if you need me to punch a binding hole for you please let me know. Will trade chunky for chunky.

Cute As A Button- traded

I have a few started and will hopefully finish them tomorrow. See y'all then!

01-07-2011, 01:14 AM
Beckypurplehaze - nice chunkies! I hope we can trade when I have more to chose from.

Popped in just to check the thread and say "night!"

01-07-2011, 04:27 AM
Beautiful pages Rebecca and Kristin!

01-07-2011, 04:27 AM
Rebecca, are all you pages already traded? You were fast to trade them all.

I finally got 2 finished.

I have a Question. How would I write next to the card that I have uploaded? Can anyone tell me?

01-07-2011, 11:37 AM
Sharlene, they are beautiful!

01-07-2011, 12:10 PM
you can't write next to uploads. the ones with writing next to them are embedded images using the image HTML code button (looks like a yellow box with a mountain/sun in it)

01-07-2011, 02:54 PM
Howdy everyone! Need to go eat some lunch and then I'm going to see what I can come up with today. We have 1 1/2 - 2 inches of snow on the ground. Not too much but it's that nasty heavy wet snow. Not sure if we are going to bother to shovel tonight or not.

01-07-2011, 03:05 PM
I live in northern Bergen County, NJ and we have at least 5" of heavy snow. I hope our electricity doesn't go out with the snow so thick on the wires. Is it spring yet!!!

01-07-2011, 03:15 PM
Puuuuuuuuuh, I spent 1.5 hours out shoveling snow because a car was stuck in the garden. There were five persons to remove the snow etc. I think I need to take a shower :).

And then I can spend a bit more time to make some chunky pages.

01-07-2011, 04:04 PM
You must be tired!

01-07-2011, 04:48 PM
A series of quote kitties for the CBAT this weekend. I used a light weight corrugated for the substrate on these - if you need me to punch a binding hole for you please let me know. Will trade chunky for chunky.

01-07-2011, 04:57 PM
Hope someone is making something when I'm sleeping. I have quite much to do this weekend but something chunky related will still be on my list.

01-07-2011, 05:02 PM
Cute Chunky's! We've been getting ready for a snow/ice storm due Sunday night. I plan to play Sat and Sun..keep on rolling out the chunky's!

01-07-2011, 05:02 PM
Haha, we have a huge garden and four houses (four floors in each house). The road to the houses goes through the garden. And the road is so steep and now so slipery and snowy too. The car was crosswise on the road and couldn't move. We almost carried it away.

OK, I'll bite ---- how did a car get stuck in the garden? I sense a good story here!!! :rolleyes:

01-07-2011, 05:24 PM
Ack! No one told me!

01-07-2011, 09:45 PM
Those are so much fun Lafaver!

We did end up shoveling the little bit of snow we got. Wasn't hard but doesn't take much to make these old bones complain so I gotta go put my feet up but I'll be back in the game tomorrow. :)

01-07-2011, 11:18 PM
Such cute chunky's! I have made two chunky's to trade that are flat, I'll add fibers if you want them.

Morning! (or afternoon I guess I should say.) Slept in and it was good. Teeny tiny snowflakes are falling again. I'll be surprised if they add up to much. Have my fingers crossed that we wont have to shovel again. Started some chunkies last night so I'm hoping I can get in my groove today.

01-08-2011, 12:53 PM

Thanks Kristin, we're stocked up but not used to Snow Storms here in the South!
Pretty Chunky sharlene!

Hope to get a few done. :D

01-08-2011, 04:42 PM
I have fussed with these all day and everything I did just messed up the whole feel of the image so I gave up and went back to my philosophy that less is more. The background image is my father's original photo and the bling is mine.

Please note these are 4 layers of cardstock - not chipboard - so they are a light weight chunky.

Will trade chunky for chunky

Gina...I just looked at your chunky ad! You're looking for vintage nursery rhyme pages?!! :jiggy:

OMG!! I have a book from 1952 of nursery rhymes from France. The colored drawings are very vintage looking. I'll see if I can get an idea for a chunky page for you. If not I'll send you a few pages from the book. I have a couple of things sitting here for you that have been waiting forever for me to mail them. :twitcy:

01-08-2011, 06:11 PM
Ok, I Pm'd you, T! I'm starting on another chunky....

01-08-2011, 09:01 PM
I didn't pay attention when this thread was posted a few days ago. But I've got my stuff together (somewhat) since then and I have this chunky page to offer.

the word LOVE is chipboard letters, the rest of the text is handwritten with sharpie on handmade paper. The base is chipboard. On the back is a teardrop shaped black stone atop white cardstock attached to a square of chipboard painted black. The danglies are black hemp with shapes cut from a vinyl record tied on to it.

If anyone is interested in this chunky, please shoot me off a PM and I will get back with you in a bit.

01-08-2011, 09:09 PM
Cool black and white Dmnh!

I'm going to work on some B&Ws tonight. ;)

I'm having a good evening :). Everything is packed but I still have a lot to do.

01-09-2011, 11:39 AM
Right - I should have said "good morning or evening." I hope you have a good week Sniisk at the University in Latvia. Have classes already started?

01-09-2011, 11:40 AM
No classes yet. I meet the international office and the workers there and my professor etc. Only plannings how to teach etc. Not any lessons until in February.

Hi All, working on finishing chunky.

That's great Sniisk that you have a chance to plan and meet people. :)

I'm off to finish up those chunkies now.

Here's a monster chunky for Chaosatlanta. Inspired by a card in one of my craft magazines. The monsters are stamps so if you want to trade monster chunkies just shoot me a PM.

Monster Love

Now I need to go take pictures of rest - to lumpy to scan. ;)

01-09-2011, 03:00 PM
OK, all my envelopes exept the one for Jill are now sealed and ready. My time to say good night soon :).

01-09-2011, 03:08 PM
Good night Sniisk! I hope you can play with us again when you are home on weekends. ;) Thanks so much for hosting us again!

The 3 hearts on these chunkies are different. Created from one of my original zentangles they were turned into kaleidoscopes and then cut apart to form hearts. (Thought about putting danglies on these but the chunky buttons seemed to be just right so they will be mailed as is.) I have enough hearts to make three of each though the emblishments will vary.


01-09-2011, 03:15 PM
KESagers - love the hearts - I wouldn't mind getting one in trade. I'll be posting at least a couple of more chunkies today.

01-09-2011, 03:30 PM
Fantastic cards everyone! Thanks Sniisk for the great time and safe travels. I have two left in my available mail art gallery.

01-09-2011, 03:31 PM
You got it Janjo33 - PMing you next!

The die-cut on this chunky was colored using Tattered Angels Glam Glitter Paint. (It's more of a dye than a "paint.")

Holiday Red

01-09-2011, 03:36 PM
Just peeking in to see the lovely chunkies ... I have been catching up with my art commitments, so I am art-ing along with you all - but have nothing to trade.

Great stuff!

I've traded all my cards. Thanks to everyone for a great weekend. Unfortunately, I have to clean-up now so I can catch-up on some swaps.

01-09-2011, 07:52 PM
Thanks everyone for making this so much FUN! I'm going offline now to clean up. Thanks especially to Sniisk for hosting.
I'll mail out my trades by next Friday, because of snow/ice event.

Here are my last chunkies for the weekend. A series of cat chunkies using calendar pictures, vintage images and dimesional buttons.

Not sure if this is my last, because there are 3 more hours till midnight :P
The kokeshi doll on the chunky is a print of my own drawing. The background is altered computer art and the other elements are clipart. The dangling came from my mom's stash that I got when she downsized. :D

My gallery is up to date and I'm always game for a last minute trade. ;)

Thanks to Sniisk for hosting another great marathon! It was another fun time. :) I think we have a marathon every weekend this month - too cool! :) Night everyone and have a good start to your week.

01-10-2011, 12:21 AM
You've all been so busy! I worked on a journal page, and didn't get any chunkies done at all. :dull:

With all the kitties and doggies this weekend, I thought I'd share a blog I came across with cool vintage cat and dog images. You should check it out. :)

01-10-2011, 12:22 AM
Thanks for hosting, sniisk! I hope your trip goes well!

01-10-2011, 03:27 AM
There has been a really last minute run :). Hope you had fun because I had even if I didn't create as many pages as I could...

Soon to the airport :).

Yetis Need Love : Made for KESagers : Not Available for Trade
Atlanta is buried under snow and ice. Everything is closed & most of the roads are impassable ... looks like we will be snowed in for a day or two.

Hope everyone is safe & warm.

01-10-2011, 07:23 PM
Yippee! I LOVE it!

01-11-2011, 03:05 AM

Take care Beeps!

Just got back from the PO - everything is mailed.

01-11-2011, 05:17 PM
Hope you feel better Beeps!

No mail service in Atlanta ... the streets are still iced over. I doubt the mail will be running for a couple more days. Thankfully, we haven't had power outages.

01-12-2011, 09:19 PM
Hope you're feeling better, Beeps! Missed you.
We had mail, today. My cat had cabin fever and doesn't want to come in...I know he will 'cause food/me are here.
He was funny walking on the ice/snow for the first time, shaking his back feet.
*********I plan to mail out my chunky trades, tomorrow!********************
