View Full Version : The Mid Feb Collage a-thon Feb 11 – 14...Come Play!

Pages : [1] 2

02-09-2011, 12:28 AM
It’s a Collage-a-thon... affectionately known as a CAT among die hard collage-a-thoners … this weekend, Feb 11 – 14. We’re having a party across the time zones of the globe... we're all creating art at the same time. How fun is that?

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Friday February 11, 2011 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Monday February 14, 2011

What we'll do this weekend is create art including at least one collaged item. Then post it to the thread and trade as much as you'd like! The only requirement is that you have “collaged” somewhere on your art.

Optional Themes:
Friday - Black White and Red
Saturday - All Winged Things - birds, butterflies, bees, cupids, dragonflies, faeries...
Sunday - Hearts
Monday - Valentines

1. Asking for a trade: When you find a piece of art you must have, 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.

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

A couple of FYI's:
*You can compliment via the "you rock" button. (It's a nice warm fuzzy!)
*Questions on posting, etc, look here (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=970)

From your atcsforall.com gallery: It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
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 P) 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.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_SAT_Autumn_Redwing.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:

[I]If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me, 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.

Who wants to play?

02-09-2011, 12:30 AM
Okay... so let's party. We need suggestions for daily themes/challenges.

Since it's valentines weekend, that is an obvious but which day? I LOVE birds... would love to do a bird or winged thing day.

What else?

02-09-2011, 12:40 AM
I hope to play:)

Winged things sounds good to me! What about a mixed media collage day?

02-09-2011, 12:40 AM
If it's collage, I'm in! Although I do like ATCs, I'm hoping to add to my chunky books and the themes I'm looking for are birds, Zetti and black & white:)

02-09-2011, 12:44 AM
yay, Evalila will be here!

smokeysmom, we can collage anything our little hearts desire. Chunky pages sound fun... and I'll probably be doing a few Gothic Arches as well.

02-09-2011, 01:25 AM
I am definitely planning to attend - I will have a late start as I am booked for a shopping day with my middle daughter. . . lots of fun!! :jiggy:

what about a particular colour or topic - eg red/white/black, cool or warm colours, vintage,etc?
OR using a particular shape as the focal point?
OR having a 3D element on the card?

02-09-2011, 01:47 AM
Hmmm...it's midterms week lol. I'll try and do a few since I've been drawing quite a bit and I'm getting tired of it lol.

02-09-2011, 11:45 AM

02-09-2011, 12:00 PM

02-09-2011, 12:19 PM

02-09-2011, 12:40 PM

02-09-2011, 12:47 PM
Perfect challenges!

It's not yet 7pm here but I have rest of the evening free and I'll start to make backgrounds :).

02-09-2011, 01:08 PM
I'll be here. :)

02-09-2011, 01:20 PM
You all collage-a-thoners. I'd love to talk more with you. Come to the chat room :).

02-09-2011, 02:03 PM
i would like to try this, as i love the collage stuff. I am very very new to this site so dont yet know how to trade. I will read up on it before we start and hopefully will be able to participate properly! Sounds like a real blast!

02-09-2011, 02:05 PM
angelmuz, when you see something you'd like to trade, just send a Pm to the person who has made it :).

02-09-2011, 02:40 PM
I'll try to play at least on Friday and possibly some on Monday (though I really need to get going on my first Moley at something faster than a snail pace).

02-09-2011, 02:49 PM
If I can get myself organized I'm going to try some beeswax collage again. :)

02-09-2011, 03:47 PM
Oh this is going to be fun!

And welcome to our newcomer, angelmuz!

02-09-2011, 04:31 PM
Wow. I just discovered we have a chat room. I wonder how long it would have taken me to figure that out without Sanna mentioning it?

(Just laugh at me. That's what I do.)

02-09-2011, 07:38 PM
Garneteve, you get to start before we do! :jiggy: It's always fun to see what folks are creating long before it's time to play in my corner of the world. :)

02-09-2011, 07:57 PM
Ohhh good, definitely I'll be in on the Hearts! Love winged things, too.
I'd better get cracking on backgrounds.

02-09-2011, 08:35 PM
And just remember the themes/challenges are ALWAYS optional. You can do your favorite all weekend if you like, or not do any at all. Just play at what makes you happy!

Rogue Gal
02-09-2011, 11:05 PM
Chat room? :huh:

I just saw that this is going on - I haven't done an A-Thon since the bird one so it's time! I'm trying to wrap up a few things I owe to people, then I can play!

Btw, I love the "winged things" theme!

Just Ducky
02-09-2011, 11:14 PM
oh, I like the challange days... at least now I got something to aim for..

02-10-2011, 12:05 AM

02-10-2011, 12:40 AM

02-10-2011, 02:32 AM

I can't start until late Friday (afternoon road trip with the folks, you know?) So whenever I get home, I'm crafting!! I've got a few ideas rolling around...maybe a few altered puzzle pieces (Zetti style!), a house shaped chunky page, and a few ATCS:)

Lorraine, your cards are wonderful!

Looks like quite a fun party group is gathering to play with you... when our clocks hit 12 noon! :jiggy:

02-11-2011, 02:37 AM
I don't have many background papers but I have a lot of stamps so I'll probably be stamping images and collaging with them. :) I couldn't do the sticker-a-thon either so I'll be making up for it with stickers in these :p. More than 12 hours! Oiy. Oh well. Hopefully when I wake up there will be lots of art to oggle.

02-11-2011, 02:54 AM
13 Hours to go so I'm gesso-ing playing cards to make APCs

02-11-2011, 02:59 AM
4 hours until I can start - at least. Will have to go see my doctor and do grocery shopping first :(

02-11-2011, 07:21 AM
here are my latest 2 cards..

Just pm me if ya wanna trade...

02-11-2011, 07:35 AM
Your cards are wonderful, Lorraine! It's 4:30 a.m. here and I can't sleep because my muse is whispering. Figured I'd check in and get an art fix, then try to get back to sleep. Is it legal to go around my house, changing clocks, so that it's athon time? :)

02-11-2011, 07:47 AM
you could always claim that you were in Aus..lol

02-11-2011, 07:57 AM
There is less than 5 mins to go here in the UK & can you believe i have errands to run. Aaaaarrggh!!! Will be back later to join in & ogle the eye candy. x

02-11-2011, 08:17 AM
Yay for Lorraine, good start!

I came from work early today (OK I have worked over 50 hours this week...). I need a quick lunch and then it's time to play!

02-11-2011, 08:35 AM
Great cards, Lorraine!

I started about an hour ago. Now I´m waiting for my first cards to dry.

02-11-2011, 09:22 AM
Great cards already! Must pour more coffee into my system before I can think of anything. Glad Chardonnay is making such great cards for inspiration. Love the Asian theme! :yes:

02-11-2011, 09:25 AM

Great cards, Lorraine and Evelyn! I can't wait to see what the rest of you have created.

4 1/2 hours before I can start, but I AM working on some exchange gifties for our local journaling group on Sunday.

02-11-2011, 11:42 AM
you could always claim that you were in Aus..lol

Yeah, yeah....I was in Australia! A few more hours here, which is just as well. I've got to do some laundry. But my art table is ready at the stroke of noon!

OH great cards so far! I'm still trying to get in my groove here. Yesterday I found this adorable deck with vintage kitties on it. Every card has the same image front and back.


Right now I have a full deck so if you are looking for a particular card for your set of APCs and want to set up a trade just shoot me a PM and I'll collage a card for you. I'm planning to do a vintage cat collage on these cards but I don't wan't to cover the central image.

02-11-2011, 03:52 PM
I have made a few & will upload tomoro when they're dry. I am enjoying all the art so far. x

First card tonight. Not Wanted on the Voyage (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=207199).

I have another red, black, and white card that I completed last night. Peg o' my Heart (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=207011). (TRADED)

02-12-2011, 12:26 AM

02-12-2011, 12:30 AM
Man, I got nothing done today. Too many other things going on...but tomorrow, for sure:) Love everyone's art!

02-12-2011, 12:37 AM
and I missing the PARTY... between JAWs baileys and stuff and PaintColors happy pills
pass it over her girls... I NEED it bad..

got a Sick MAN in the house, and you know what that means... guess you could say that I "am on call" honey ??? you busy ???? could you ???? gads what wimps men are when they sicky.. but my poor baby/husband sure ain't feeling good, FLU I think... everything hurts...

and look at all the great show and tells... BUT... HHC.... it is Friday, and you got us doing the Friday challange... BLack-white and RED.... so ???? where's ya B-W-R ????

Ok, I'm laughing myself silly here. What is it with sick men? They are quite possibly the most pathetic creatures on Earth. My mom used to tell me that's why women had to have babies. If men had to go through pregnancy and childbirth....

As for me, I'm done for today, but can't wait to see what everyone's created by tomorrow morning!

02-12-2011, 12:48 AM
what exacly is a Costco?? is that like woolies??

It's a big discount warehouse type store... in bulk. And huge. Cool stuff.

Howdy, ya'll! Can I crash this amazing party that's going on here?

No need to crash, bluesy! You're invited and more than welcome here!

Hi all my a-thon friends. I just realized it was a "A-THON" week end! you know I love a-thons. ......did a "old lady fall" on Tues night and not suppose to sit bending R knee for too long, but obviously the doc didn't know about a-thons. Ha!
I have "Happy Pills" .......so I'm a-thoning.....(well, just a little bit, they kinda stingy with the happy pills)

Oh, bummer about the knee! I have a bad knee so can totally sympathize. I didn't get happy pills last time I twisted it, though. Sit with a stool/foot rest and a pillow and prop your leg out in front of you resting on it. That always worked for me. :)

1) I just have Chardonnay... (wine, not Lorraine) would you like a glass?
2) I know just what you mean about men being wimps...
3) Um... I tried a couple BW red, but they suck pretty bad. Apparently not my colors. That doesn't mean some won't show up this weekend. :rolleyes:

Ok, I'm laughing myself silly here. What is it with sick men? They are quite possibly the most pathetic creatures on Earth. My mom used to tell me that's why women had to have babies. If men had to go through pregnancy and childbirth....

Exactly! :D I must clarify that I adore my husband and he is usually quite attentive if I'm whiny about being sick. I just spent last evening taking care of son who had an upset stomach... he's rarely sick, poor guy.

02-12-2011, 01:08 AM

Well... we didn't want to disturb your sleep! You need all your energy to create lovely cards today!

02-12-2011, 01:57 AM
I rally was in a need of good sleep. This week has been too busy. And the next week is not going to be any better...

Yikes - I missed the Friday party! I forgot! How could I forget?! I'll get busy later today (it's 1am and cold and dark in the studio, and I should go back to bed). See what I have to crank out a BWR or two to make up for Friday. Saturday I think is going to be beeswax collage day with all my lovely new swap napkins :)

Save me some Bailey's for my morning coffee when I get back up!


02-12-2011, 02:25 AM
I'm still waiting for the sun rise and the time when I could take the pics.

02-12-2011, 02:31 AM

02-12-2011, 02:44 AM
I'm almost finished with a set, but mucked up one, and had to reprint the image and lost momentum.
It's probably because I've been up since the wee hours. (checking on sick kid) I'm going to turn in, but hope to be up and at 'em first thing in the morning. Hubs alarm is set for 6am. :eek:

Happy creating!

02-12-2011, 03:03 AM
The collage part of this one is subtle but the drawing is done atop a napkin I collaged on to textured chipboard.

I had the day off today but set my alarm so I could get up early and create all day. My muse had other ideas, though. My muse didn't want to do art, she wanted to watch Animal Cops and eat Chinese takeout, and not much else. She allowed me to prep some backgrounds, but that's it. She's been very stubborn. :eek:

I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be inspired to create with you all. I have been checking the thread all day and enjoying your artwork. Keep those beauties coming!

Just finished reading the thread with my morning coffee and seeing what was posted while I slept. I do need to eat something, get dressed and go mail a bill (boo) before the PO closes. Then I hope to get back and maybe do another card or two before Daryl gets in. Great cards everyone. CAT 2 has been traded, but CAT 1 is still available if anyone wants a trade.

02-12-2011, 11:39 AM
GREAT CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!

02-12-2011, 11:54 AM
Oh MY, you all have been cooking up some wonderful eye candy!
It has been a bit since I've played in a CAT. I have a few things to show for my efforts over night.
I worked on the BWR theme for yesterday on the ATCs.
I started the book on Thursday. Cut the covers, the page block and assembled the parts together. I did the collage on the front cover (thin corregated cardboard) about 2 o'clock this morning. It has 100 pages of lavendar, hot pink, orange and white unlined writing paper. It's sewn with pink embroidery thread in the coptic stitch which means it lays flat when open. It is 6x4.5 inches.

If anyone is interested in kitty ATCs or a book just shoot me off a pm and I'll get back with you. Not sure how long till I get some more done.

Well, I have been stuggling with a very old old digital camera here trying to get a decent pic of my CAT cards to no avail.. that camera is trash. I guess count me out since my own good camera is gone to Arizona with my son.:(

Sorry... have fun trading everyone.

02-12-2011, 03:48 PM
I need to say good night. I woke up too early and now I'm too tired to do anything. Maybe some more cards tomorrow.

Have fun creating!

02-12-2011, 04:17 PM
Night, Sanna!

For those having trouble posting in the thread, the easiest way I've found (courtesy of Sanna, actually) is:

Have two windows open, one of your gallery and one of this thread. Right click on the gallery image you want to post and choose "copy image location" and then come to the thread and in the reply box, click on the yellow postcard icon. When it comes up with an http: box, right click, hit paste and then ok. You can put four or five in each post, I think. It sounds complicated, but, once you get the hang of it, it's not.

And now I've got to start scanning. :)

02-12-2011, 04:21 PM
here are two more, CAT 11 and 12

02-12-2011, 04:35 PM




02-12-2011, 04:53 PM
And a few more and then I've got to eat an actual meal. (Got so caught up in athonning that I didn't even realize I was hungry.)





02-12-2011, 05:07 PM
Taking a lunch break so I'm checking in and loving the new cards posted. I'll upload my new ones later. Enjoy the crafting, everyone!

02-12-2011, 05:09 PM
Afternoon everyone!

Finished a long, stressful, extremely BUSY night at work...and came home all in one piece..which is always a good thing!

Took the boys to swimming classes...now, time to answer PM's before I crash and burn--just enough time to sleep before time to go to work again!

No time to art it up today--oh well...such is life!

02-12-2011, 05:10 PM

02-12-2011, 06:41 PM
In case you all are wondering what's taking me so long to get cards posted, I had to finish up some jewelry I've made for Valentine's gifts (they're in my gallery, but not available to trade):)

02-12-2011, 06:42 PM
no Nancy..I was having Breakfast....

02-12-2011, 06:44 PM
Although I am unable to post here due to lack of a working camera today. I have 4 atc's left all different versions of a sun/sunset theme, multiple layers(lots...lol) collage to offer up for trade. That is if anyone is willing to trade without actually seeing these.

Also working on right now a few zetti chunky pages 4x4 collage if anyone would like to chance a trade.

There is so much art here to look at... just lovin it!

02-12-2011, 06:55 PM
Okay... I really need to do some creating. I'll get to rest of the pm's soon. Don't give up on me.

02-12-2011, 07:15 PM
Woo-hoo - I made 3 cards - hope you like my Things with Wings!

Birds 1 and Birds 2 is traded

02-12-2011, 07:30 PM
hi all you awesome a-thoners! I'm trying to learn how to post my pics to this thread, Cynthia gave some real easy directions, but when I try to open "Mid Feb Collage" and then try to open my gallery....the collage window disapears...hmmmmm.
gonna use some real technical jargon here....the windows are the little thingys on my bar at bottem , right?

02-12-2011, 07:36 PM
Here's another way to try: (you won't need to open 2 windows)(just make sure you know where your pics are stored on the computer - I put all my ATCs in a folder right on my desktop)

How to post pictures in a forum

Go to the forum just like you are going to write a message but....
Click on Go Advanced
If you want you can Title your thread response or just type in a message.
Next scroll down to Manage Attachments and click on that.
A Manage Attachments box will pop up - click on Browse and find you scanned or photographed.
(I have a folder right on my desktop so my pics are easier to find.
Click Upload
Close that screen and then Scroll down to Submit Reply.

02-12-2011, 07:40 PM
Do you have two windows open? On my browser each "window" shows as a tab.. and each tab has a title. I click back and forth between the tabs.
Next to the first "tab" is a little plus sign. Click on that and it opens a new window... go to your gallery and "get your image" and then you should be able to click back on the "Mid Feb Collage" tab to move back and forth between them.

Does that make sense or did I answer the wrong question? :D

02-12-2011, 08:27 PM
Anyone having trouble with pics, I love blind trades, too, so feel free to pm me.

With pictures, it may make a difference on pc vs mac or different browsers. (I'm on a pc with Firefox.) I haven't experimented much. I have just enough tech knowledge that, if I'm careful, I can manage not to blow my computer up, and that's good enough for me.

02-12-2011, 08:36 PM
Hey all! I've been sitting here attempting to make chunky's for the first time, and thought I'd come surf the forum and see what everyone else is doing, and look what I found!?!? A Collage-A-Thon. Just what I needed to get my creative juices flowing!
Better late than never! :)

02-12-2011, 08:37 PM
Anyone else making chunky's this weekend? I'd love to trade some!!! Should have some to post soon!

02-12-2011, 08:39 PM
ill make some just so i can trade with you!!

02-12-2011, 08:41 PM
Here are some more from me. Still loving the B/W/R theme but tossed in a butterfly and some hearts so I'm covering several day's themes. :jiggy:

CAT#9 traded
CAT#11 traded

02-12-2011, 08:44 PM
Here's a half-collaged ATC I did today for the "all winged things" theme. I don't think I can handle more than one collage per day xD


02-12-2011, 08:45 PM
Oh Amy that is so sweet of you to do. I'm a chunky virgin (LOL) so I hope I do these right. I've got 4X4's that I've decorated on both sides. But I'm not putting any holes for binding. That way, who ever gets them, can put them together how they want to.
Any advice is welcome. I've been reading up on the HOW TO on the AFA thread. So I think I'm close!

On a purely personal, sad note, today I'm mourning the loss of a dear friend who died last night. It wasn't unexpected, but it is still a shock. I've known her for over 30 years. I just needed to tell someone. :(

02-12-2011, 09:16 PM

02-12-2011, 09:17 PM
