It’s a Marathon All Types of Art a-thon!

We're getting in some week days for those folks who work weekends... and here's the scoop:

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am (midnight) on Wednesday morning, June 1, 2011, and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday June 5, 2011


This weekend we will :
1) Create art: Artist Trading Cards, Altered Playing Cards, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, Gothic arches, post cards, altered tins – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create.
And we'll be collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting, using postage stamps, creating Found Poetry... you name it!
2) Show what lovely creations you've made
3) Trade art - if you wish.
4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
5) HAVE FUN!


OPTIONAL CHALLENGES/THEMES FOR THE WEEKEND:
Wednesday – Use postage stamps in your art
Thursday – 1) Stickers and/or Punchcraft 2) Layers and more layers
Friday – Blind Contour Drawing
Saturday – Things with Wings
Sunday – Altered photos/tins/books... just alter something!


Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE.
Challenges and themes are ENTIRELY optional. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

ALSO NOTE that your work does not have to be for trade. If you’re working on swaps or your journal, show us whatever you’re working on today.


Here's the "fine print" :rolleyes:

What IS an ART-A-THON?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art weekend, done over the same day and time in each time zone.
It’s kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.

HOW IT WORKS: At 12:01 AM Wednesday June 1 (your time zone) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading and chatting ensues. At 11:59 on Sunday June 5 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to chat and trade as long as you like.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art or goody bag 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.

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!

WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST: And you will… remember you can click the You Rock button and leave it there.

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.
Internet Explorer
1 Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu has “properties” at the bottom.
2) Right click on “properties”, and it will show you Address (URL). Highlight the address/url and copy (Ctrl C).
Then follow steps 3 - 5
Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

Mozella Firefox and Mac Safari (most versions)
1) Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location” (which is about 2/3 down the list for me)
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
Then follow steps 3 - 5

3) Go to your post in the thread and click on 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) Remember that images from the gallery are small, medium or large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Maygar_Posta-traded.jpg [/IMG

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


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:

NEW TO A-THONS?
If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm your host, 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.

Anyone ready to party?

May I suggest "Blind Draws" for one of the days themes!?!?
I noticed that JAW has been doing those lately! (So proud of you Julie!!) :)

Oh, and maybe a "Things with wings" - everyone loves those.

Question: what's a blind draw?

HHC
05-31-2011, 11:43 AM
It's actually Blind Contour Drawing

Blind contour drawing is a method of drawing, popularized in part by Kimon Nicola´des in his book The Natural Way to Draw (1941), which presents itself as an effective training aid or discipline. The student, fixing their eyes on the outline of the model or object, draws the contour very slowly in a steady, continuous line without lifting the pencil or looking at the paper. The student may look at the paper to place an internal feature, but once they begin to draw it, they do not glance down, but follow the same procedure as for the outline

Gina-B
05-31-2011, 12:59 PM
Oh, I did blind drawng in school. Its quite enjoyable actually, once you get over worrying about it!

Some nice challenges there to consider!

I am getting extremely frustrated with this site today - I have been trying to load my first 5 cards since 11am, it is now 3.38pm and I STILL have not been able to load anything!!!!:arghh: This is the first time that I have even been able to get onto any part of the site, I will just keep making cards and try again tomorrow.
VERY frustrating at losing a whole day of the a-thon - thanks for making it longer than usual - I might be able to get on sometime :nah:

I've been there too, citykitten. Not fun. Hope the depression subsides enough for you to create. Art can be very therapeutic, if you can get yourself motivated enough to start.

Good morning to you all! Another a-thon to play in. I hope I can show some pictures every day, but I am creating several quilt tops as well, so I cannot promise this. Here are my first cards for today. I made these for the I spy purple swap but they all have a (printed) stamp on them, so I am showing them here as well:

Oh That's Right! ... Today's challenge is to use Postage Stamps! Hmmm ... Had so much fun making the stamp people that I may just have to create an army of them today too! LOL ...

And a request? I've just uploaded to Mem Support a request for an A-thon gallery, so will everyone *please* put ATART in their description of the cards if they upload to their galleries? This will enable staff to see how many uploads are specifically for the athon and to determine whether there is a real need for a general thon gallery. Thanks!

The idea is to draw something (anything) while looking at it, not at your paper. :)

A few that emerged from the rubble....

06-01-2011, 02:42 PM
Dilys - a chunky is always 4 inches by 4 inches on a sturdy background (like chipboard) and is really chunked up with embellishments that are chunky like: buttons, beads, yarns/tassles, charms. (Think opposite of a flat ATC.) Often the back also has some sort of decoration or it can be completely decorated also. My PO insists that I send something like a chunky in a padded envelope and I have found that is the best protection for all of the embellishments. Since it costs me extra to mail I trade chunky for chunky . . . however . . . I have started making a few chunkies that are thin and flat - no thick embellishements - and can be mailed for regular postage - those I will trade for an ATC but I CLEARLY mention in my description that they are not real chunkies because I don't want anyone to be disappointed when they get it.

Can anyone else think of what I've forgotten?

Oh Jean! How cool to have an "athon" gallery! I usually name them "atart #1" or "psat" or "fpat" .... is that what you mean? The "title" line? ... or in the actual description part? (did I put too much Bailey's in my coffee and get y'all confused? LOL)

KESagers

Yes - I'm not sure also - where should I put ATART - sometimes I don't have room in the title.

Here are 3 "thin" chunkies from me. Very thin and lightweight for a chunky. Also I have keep the embellishments flater than usual - no danglies, charms or thick embellishments - thin fibers may be added apon request. Since this should ship at regular postage I will trade for ATC or chunky

Dilys - a chunky is always 4 inches by 4 inches on a sturdy background (like chipboard) and is really chunked up with embellishments that are chunky like: buttons, beads, yarns/tassles, charms. (Think opposite of a flat ATC.) Often the back also has some sort of decoration or it can be completely decorated also. My PO insists that I send something like a chunky in a padded envelope and I have found that is the best protection for all of the embellishments. Since it costs me extra to mail I trade chunky for chunky . . . however . . . I have started making a few chunkies that are thin and flat - no thick embellishements - and can be mailed for regular postage - those I will trade for an ATC but I CLEARLY mention in my description that they are not real chunkies because I don't want anyone to be disappointed when they get it.

Can anyone else think of what I've forgotten?

The only thing I can think of (and you are VERY thorough) is to leave the left 1/2 inch un-embellished so they can be bound

Of course, Dilys, there is also gothic arches .... LOL ... now we're getting into bigger yet ... or inchies (1"x1") or twinchies (2"x2") or, I believe ... there are also thrinchies! LOL (3x3) ... not to mention ... journal pages, roundies, APCs (altered playing cards), umm ... recipe cards, rolos (rolo-dex address cards) ...

Overwhelmed yet? :biglaugh:

Well, I've barely been able to start today. I swore to myself that I would NOT start until I got the house clean, and I'm just finishing up a bathroom then I can play. (Okay so I am procrastinating on cleaning the bathroom and am checking AFA instead of cleaning the toilet - But really who can blame me!) lol

I have not gotten any art done yet today and I'm starting to panic. I am enjoying what everyone else has accomplished.

Ceejay those are great! Keep doing what you are doing - whatever you create this weekend please post pictures so we can see. If you mark whether something is available to trade or just for show-and-tell then we'll know. (Which is exaclty what you did.) Sometimes the trading is fast and furious - first come first serve - and that's all part of the fun. Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions along the way. :)

Since "not for trade" is allowed ... can we also display other creations ? This is the very first "stained glass window" I MADE ... I even had to modify the pattern (adding background so I had an oval shape, which could then be framed in zinc ... for stability) I'm really proud of this one. I even cut the eyes with a dark shade so he looks like he's guarding the tulip and watching over his shoulder.

I just posted a piece for the Art-a-Thon, but I can't seem to post on this thread. I have a Mac. Is that why the directions aren't working - or am I just technologically challenged? Anyway this is a 6 x 12 piece of mixed media. I am taking an online course with Christy Tomlinson, and this piece is the result of my first day of "class."
