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

A COUPLE OF RULES TO ABIDE BY, PLEASE!:
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)

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD:
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:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2115


[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?

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?

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

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

smokeysmom
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:)

HHC
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.

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?

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!

sniisk
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 :).

GoldenWolf

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).

Oh this is going to be fun!

And welcome to our newcomer, angelmuz!

CynthiaSillitoe
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.)

HHC
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. :)

ginabee
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.

HHC
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

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.

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? :)

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.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/768/medium/1_Vintage-cat-APC.jpg

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.

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

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:

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.

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.

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. :)

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?
HELP

ICraft
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.

HHC
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.
