I actually have two days off in a row Tuesday and Wednesday ... therefore, I want to have a play date with my AFA friends!
12:01am Tuesday to 11:59pm Wednesday
June 7 & 8 ... start early ... stay late!!!

Basically ... Any kind of art you want to do, do it. Post for trade, or post just to show. Chat with each other and maybe we'll have snacks too!

Everyone is invited! Bring a friend!

Thanks for letting me know. I just made my first batch of hand-made paper today (well, yesterday, now, here, still today for you in WA) and I've already made 2 ATCs from it. I couldn't wait for it all to flatten so I'm playing with one sheet for now. Here's hoping work doesn't interfere with my VIP (Very Important Play).

I am so in! The athons are a bit fast and furious for me to keep up with...but I'll be in there pitching! *thinking* We'll need snacks...Mouseit's got the Bailey's and chocolate - order extra Baileys! I love it in chocolate milk... I'll bring a nice baked spinach dip and some gourmet coffees for those late nights, too....

Mousie and Owl does that mean we will start tomorrow?

jaw
06-06-2011, 12:55 AM

This is so great! I was a bit disappointed that the ATART ended yesterday as I missed a few days of it due to my vacation and to helping my uncle move house. I only had time to play Saturday evening and Sunday. And now there is a playdate on Tuesday and Wednesday :jiggy: Letmecheck my agenda....

Looks good! Luckily I am self-employed, need to get some work done, but will make time to play. See ya all tomorrow at the party, I love Baileys and chocolate :D

I'll be there. Hopefully, I'll do better than I did for ATART. I think my creative muse flew the coop (wish there was a chicken smiley) last week. I struggled to get 4 cards made for this past Athon. Any particular favorite subjects of yours Julie?

I usually have to work job #2 on weekends and I miss most of the athons. I'll be working job #1 during the day during this, but it is acually easier for me to pop in and say hi during those work times so I'll definitely try to stop by and socialize at least and who knows, maybe my evening will be open enough to actually do some trading as well. Thanks for the invite!

06-06-2011, 08:38 AM

there are no themes or challenges for this ~ I just figured we'd see what inspires us ... afterall, plagiarism is a form of flattery ... right? :biglaugh:As for me, I may do some postage stamp people ... I simply must do something with all the image transfers we made the other night ... and there is always Herman (you can visit him in my gallery) ...
It's going to be tough to focus on work today (since, dear Mouseit, it is Monday here. :cry:)

I will try to stop, but I am not sure I will be able to ... my son is training for a swimming competition in the mornings, and by the time I get back it might already be noon.

But just in case i do not make it. Have fun!

And will there be any chocolate at this party?

What a great idea JAW - a cyber play date! Isn't it sad we don't all live 15 minutes from each other - then we could get together in person all the time? That would be so awesome!! But since we don't live near - this is definitely the next best thing!

jaw
06-06-2011, 03:57 PM
Just checking in from work ... this is so exciting!
Our daughter called this morning to tell us that they finally got a house! Inspections kept taking their prospects away. (Yippee! Thank goddess for that! ) and now the skies part and glorious sun shines upon the land!
Oh! ... better get back to work!

06-06-2011, 04:21 PM

Well, I hope I can just be an early bird, since I cannot be here tomorrow morning.

I have been working on a couple of oil paintings, and one just is driving me crazy. I can't seem to get it right. I was going for an impressionistic feel, but all I have is a major hot mess. I was thinking on disregarding it .... what do you all think?

http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/3783/irisp.jpg

Meanwhile, let me invite you for a drink!

SunTrade ~ What a kick in the butt!!! I loved Quantum Leap! And you can kiss him wherever you want!
I am no oil painter ... I like your painting, but did it become too realistic rather than impressionistic for you? So it isn't either ... ? Is that what is bothering you?
I re-looked at your painting and thought "I wonder what a white gel pen would do?" (you know, like paintmanycolors has embellished on her ATC) then remembered ... duh! it's an oil painting! LOL ...
Wow ... I really am no help ... :twitcy:

I was wondering the same thing. Impressionistic style is very hard to do. It's more like dabs of paint rather than tight detailed painting. It's also allowing the colors to visually mix on your canvas and not premixing them on your palette. Since you're working in oils, you know you can paint over this and continue on. Love the complimentary color palette!

Its really pretty, Sun. I don't do oil's , I think their hard to work with, so I admire anyone that can paint with them.

(Jaw, LoL, you made me giggle, glad you like your hostess gift......now to get all those male dancers outta the helocopter...come on Bubba and Bubba Jr. and Billy Bob...they a little on the hefty side on account of all the budweiser, and they a little muddy, cause they was out tipping cows, but it was all I could get at last moment here in Georgia.)

Thank you guys! is actually not an ATC,, is about 18 x 24! I guess I do need to put it away and pick it up later. Impressionism is harder than realistic for me ... you are right mrubyjean.

I did a portrait of my son playing soccer, and i have been at it for two years, and still hate it. But I took it to his room today and told him I was finished. What would he know, he is only 11! He thinks everything I paint is beautiful!

I am glad I am not the only one that likes Bakula! :rolleyes: Richard Dean Anderson, and him are my favorites! :D

I guess I am going to bed. is 11 here and my hubby is still waiting for me to get off the computer. Have fun!

AHHHHHH! I cannot get a photo to print on photo paper, although it will print on 80# cover paper. What the heck! I've just wasted four large sheets of photo paper and a lot of ink... disgruntled person here! :skeptical:


So... sounds like you all have a fun party going. Perhaps I'll just join in and take it to the copy shop tomorrow. :)

Whew! I came home from work and decided to swap out all the returns for the swap I'm hosting. It's 10:15 and I haven't even eaten dinner yet! Too tired and hungry to make art, but I just wanted to pop in and say hi. I'm enjoying your party atmosphere! Hopefully tomorrow I can play a bit after work.

Carry on! Drink up! Apply paint/pen/paper/glitter/glue/etc. to paper and have a ball!

I was just trying to think of something to get me out of this post-op funk that I've been in and the option that was most appealing to me was actually to crawl back in bed (I'm just soooo tired it's not funny) even thoughI only been up for 1.5h orso. But pulling out the craftsupplies and seeing what all I can come up with ofcourse is a much better plan! So time to brew another cup of tea, and get to crafting. And if you wonder what all that color is on my face... then I somehow still managed to fall asleep right on top of my inks ;)

Maybe, my oven is old and doesn't heat evenly so I'll have to see if one of my friends will let me raid their kitchen, it's a yummy treat but the heating process is crucial. Maybe if I try thinner bacon...Mmmm I'll start experimenting.

Cayenne-Candied Bacon
Recipe courtesy Emeril Lagasse, 2002

Prep Time:10 minInactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time:20 min
Level:
Easy
Serves:
1 pound
Ingredients
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 pound thinly sliced bacon
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil, and position broiler rack on top of pan. Lightly coat the rack with the vegetable oil.

Combine the brown sugar and cayenne in a shallow dish, stirring to mix well. Press 1 side of each slice of bacon firmly into the spiced sugar to coat well. Arrange the slices of bacon on top of the broiler rack in a single layer, sugared-side up. If there is any sugar remaining in the dish, sprinkle it on top of the bacon slices evenly. Bake until the bacon is crisp and the sugar is bubbly, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, then to a plate or serving dish to cool. (Can be made several hours ahead) Serve warm or at room temperature.

:DJaw, I'd be a little wary of using the undersized PCs in a swap. I sent some APCs to Holland once for a swap and they were the type you mentioned. NOT a good idea for the very serious APC collectors..they are very picky about the exact size.

Here's a little Elf owl pen-ink and watercolor ATC I did. Elf owls are so tiny, only 5 1/4" tall.
open for trade.

tell me about it. I learned the hard way how offended(or miffed or whatever)people can get about it. APC's were something that started coming about in popularity while I was "off the scene" for awhile. So I thought since it was an APC it was allowed to be whatever size the playing card that was used. YIKES...was I wrong.

I was afraid of that ... I don't do many APC swaps. I'll just be sure to post the exact size in the description when I make them ...
As for our Play Date .... if it ain't exact ... That's Okay!!!! :jiggy:
I just put a layer of acrylic paint on about 1/2 a deck ... so I am going ahead with it! LOL

OH OH I am here!! Beauty Sleep all done with... But I need to fix my hair.. *pumps hair* Heehee can't be looking dowdy for the strippers! I might take a fancy to one of them! heehee

Whats a APC? I only had one card that was really really off from a trade once and I trimmed it so that I could actually slip it into my plastic sheet....was very upset, but I don't mind generally if they are a little off size so long as they slip in the pocket....

Altered Playing Card. Some are collecting an entire deck. I'm just collecting and don't mind the off sizes - even trying to collect the minis and there is no standard size for them.

Has anyone every done Rolos? (Oo rolos, yummy candy).. but no, the artwork. What are the rules? Is the front supposed to match the back? Do you alter the front and the back? Is there supposed to be an open spot to write? I've seen some with and without.

Jaw- Guinness.. an acquired taste in my opinion, I can't stand the stuff, my husband is a nut about it he says "only another Guinness drinker would get it" He is crazy about ordering it out when it wasn't poured just so. He even went as far to get the harp tattooed on his arm. I think he's just a weirdo. But he is my weirdo. LOL.

Your husband is a wise man! Not only for grabbing on to you, but ... Guinness! .... the nector of the gods ... I absolutely agree with him on the pouring! You don't pour a Guinness, you build it. Some people are "wine snobs" ... is there such a thing as a "beer snob"? ... just give me my Guinness and nobody gets hurt! LOL

I was just passing through and noticed this party going on. Guinness is the best, but only if you get it on draft in Ireland. Here in the states, it doesn't compare. I should know 'cause Lord knows I've tried it in a number of establishments.

A close friend of mine grew up 1/2 mile from the brewery in Ireland ... we went to an Irish Pub with him one time (here in the states) and the bartender was "pouring" a Guinness from the tap ... OMG! It was the funniest thing to see this Irishman go beserk on him! He actually started speaking Gaelic!! LOL ... needless to say, that bartender now knows the proper way to "build a Guinness" :biglaugh:

Finally! I spent 3 hours at the eye doctor--yes, THREE. Apparently I wasn't as important since I wasn't being dilated. All in all a good appt AND no co-pay (doc: "we have a special fund for that." for what--people who wait 3 hours?). And I wasn't the last patient there.

Meatloaf for dinner--and ladies, I make one kick @$$ meatloaf! My husband just came back from SB, so Mocha Frappuccinos for Everyone!!!

Reading this, I am just sooooooo excited to start! But first:

@KittyNL - Is your Jazz-forever stamp ATC for trade? If not, please tell me where you got that stamp!!
@lilthamel and @katrinabean86 - I've never made an APC--and yes, I'm glad I know what that is, too--so maybe I'll play with that. So much to play with.
@Dilys - Gorey cards?!? Oh, that is just toooooo coooool.
@jaw - Yes, there are beer snobs. I don't hang out with those kind of people.

Time now to whip out the M&Ms and brew some loose-leaf Hot Cinnamon Spice tea. One of the handmade papers I made this past weekend used those tea leaves. Even the orange pieces made it in! (@lini - missed you there!)

I've been busy 1) buying new jeans for young man so he doesn't go to Greece in his old work jeans. (ya think he'd have mentioned it, wouldn't ya?) 2) A tiny bit of grocery shopping, and 3) then we took advantage of the gray cooler day (actually a normal day here) to get the rest of the tomatoes in their pots, and plant the rest of the veggies in their permanent homes/pots. All are either in their spot on the deck or in the green house (We do want to actually harvest something so have to give the little fellers a chance!) We made great progress, and I'm tired!

Wine spritzer in hand, I'm ready to create something... :)
