Welcome to the November Chunky Page A-Thon (CPAT)
**Thanks to beeps and sniisk for information from previous Chunky-Page-a-Thons**

What IS an A-THON?
It’s a marathon where we can create art (chunky book pages this time), done over the same time in each time zone.
This thread is going to be our common discussion and display space.

Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 am (just after midnight) on Friday November 25, 2011 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday November 27, 2011

*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, etc.
*Chunkies can also have danglies of all kinds, especially on the right-hand side of the page.
*Keep the left 1/2" of the chunky page FREE of chunky things so the recipient can bind it.
*Decorate your chunky page backs. They don't need to be fancy but they should not be left undone.
You can glue a pretty paper to the back if you are running out of steam.
*Remember to put your username somewhere on the back of your pages.
You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

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.

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, please 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.

Woot! Thanks for hosting, Martha!

11-23-2011, 01:09 AM
With any luck I'll be making some chunkies for this athon. Thankyou Mrubyjane for hosting this and the great instructions.

11-23-2011, 02:08 AM
It's now official! I find chunkies much slower to make than ATCs - but I guess part of that is that I get quite carried away with using all the different layers that are now available to me evil, demented little laugh with hand rubbing

11-23-2011, 02:23 AM
woohoo! Almost party time! :)

Donna, I'm slow whatever I'm creating. LOL!

11-23-2011, 02:37 AM
I hope to go home early on Friday :).

11-23-2011, 04:30 AM
I have never participated in an "A-THON" before but this looks like a good place to start. :D

ohhhhh fun fun!!!!!

11-23-2011, 12:23 PM
Yay! I can't wait to start - this is gonna be fun!!!! :jiggy:

11-23-2011, 01:02 PM
Ducky I just sent you message about your backgrounds curling and this is what I said:

Glue something to the back - the same way you glued to the front and when they dry they should be flat. It has something to do with the fibers in the paper/chipboard and moisture. If you do the same thing to both sides it evens it out. :)

Looking forward to seeing all of the chunky art. Busy week here with the holiday and my hubby's birthday but I'll play if I can. ;)

11-23-2011, 01:56 PM
I've managed to get sick. :( I'm still hoping to play a little, though.

11-23-2011, 02:43 PM
Oh no! I hope you feel better Cynthia!

11-23-2011, 02:51 PM
That's terrible, Cynthia. I hope you feel better.

11-23-2011, 03:23 PM
Thanks. I think I will by this weekend. The plan is to spend today in bed and maybe tomorrow, aside from dinner with family. (I'm very glad I wasn't planning to cook it.) By the weekend, I hope I'll be up for some art. Luckily, I've already done most of my prep.

For danglies, do you use something like cropadiles to punch or is there another trick? I haven't bought a cropadile....yet..I'm thinking of seeing if they show up on favorite art websites in Monday sales. I do have a regular hole punch that I think will work on the cardboard I plan to use, though probably not the coasters.

11-23-2011, 03:27 PM
Cynthia, hope you can get a cropodile...will make life so much easier....and easier on those hands!

11-23-2011, 03:30 PM
Cynthia ~ Here's hoping it's just a quick bug...and you recover quickly!

I finally bought a crop-a-dile! But a hole punch worked for me on most chunkies.
Sometimes, for some danglies, a stapler works. And, on some chunkies, I stabbed a little hole with an exacto knife and used a brad to hold the dangly (and cover the hole) :laugh:

11-23-2011, 08:30 PM
I've wondered if even a needle would work if I put the danglie on a layer of lighter paper (easy to pierce with a needle) and then layered? I've also been thinking I might be able to get some danglies to work by putting down a little double-sided tape, then the thread, and then tape and collage over, but I'll have to experiment to make sure they're really secure. With chunky pages being turned and handled, as opposed to in sleeves, it seems like durability would be good.

Believe me, I will have a crop-a-dile before the January CPAT!

11-23-2011, 08:35 PM
Themes I am collecting: coffee/ coffee mugs, vintage Christmas, Butterfly pages, Owls, Beach themed, and Birds

I've got backgrounds waiting for two of your themes, Vintage Christmas and Owls! ;)

I've been using a plain greeting card type card for chunky bases. I keep them open while working and make a hole with a large needle for my dangly bits. I then glue it closed, so the dangly ends have the added security of being sandwiched and won't unravel or anything dire. I then do the back.

Cynthia, I've used an awl (originally in my sewing kit) to punch holes. It works quite well, although I have a crop-o-dile that I LOVE! :D

11-23-2011, 09:21 PM
Good idea, I must dig out my awl!

11-23-2011, 11:21 PM
Oh my, I am really hoping I can squeeze a bunch of chunkies out this weekend!!! I am obsessed with chunkies!!!

11-24-2011, 10:47 AM
tra la la la la la la la la....doing the chunky dance, which in my case is not difficult as I've gained some weight over the last year.....:laugh:
happy to see some folks chomping at the bit.....working on backgrounds today.

I'm trying to do a Christmas Chunky book, so will be making Chunky Christmas pages:yes:

11-24-2011, 10:52 AM
Tick, tock, tick tock only nine hours to go and I can start!

11-24-2011, 11:38 AM
Don't know if my 'creative mind' will click in or not, but I'll be following to see what all of you are doing.

11-24-2011, 11:44 AM
I sure hope I get to play in this athon.
With work and company I don't know how much I will be able to play.

11-24-2011, 01:36 PM
Good morning!
I think I dreamed about chunky pages last night...wish I could remember it better...maybe it contained some inspiring ideas.

Happy Thanksgiving to US folks!
And Happy Chunky Creating to everyone!
(still 14+ hours away for me, though...)

I did too!!! I woke up today and starting cutting pages!!! I can't wait!!

11-24-2011, 02:43 PM
QUESTION: what if you have like 20 or 30 chunkies done by the end?? How do you post them all without eating up the forum thread? Should a link just be posted to thread of mail art for trade?

11-24-2011, 03:11 PM
You can post them one after another when they are ready. I wouldn't wait the the end of the weekend.

11-24-2011, 06:17 PM
ok thanks

11-24-2011, 08:48 PM
Changed my mind. First two! #1 is 3D, #2 is a sticker on Oriental paper. They don't have dandlies yet, one because I'm tired and am going off to bed and two, because I'm not sure what to put on them. I'll look at them again with fresh eyes tomorrow. In the meantime, if anyone wants them as is, that's fine as well!

I'm gathering materials and cutting paper for backs. I have prepped a few backgrounds and I'll ready to go tomorrow morning.

Great start, Ibus.

11-24-2011, 10:56 PM
Thanksgiving dinner was a blast, company has gone home, I have the James Bond marathon on TV, and ready to start making backgrounds. :jiggy:

Not sure if I will make it to midnight or not, as I was up cooking at the crack of dawn this morn, but I will try!

Ibus, you got us off to a great start! :D

11-25-2011, 12:18 AM
I can barely bend to type on the puter...that last bite of stuffing did me in. I am not sure about the uploading instruction....I am just going to upload into my gallery.

11-25-2011, 12:57 AM
Gonna try to get my chunk on... Okay, I'm a big girl but I laughed at that anyway....:D

Hope to have time to do this. Can't wait to see what y'all come up with!

11-25-2011, 03:04 AM
Oh, almost forgot about this :err:

I have lots on my plate this weekend, but I hope to find some time to make a few chunkies.

11-25-2011, 03:05 AM
Ibus, your chunkies are beautiful, especially love the first one!

11-25-2011, 03:05 AM
I watched a bit of the James Bond marathon, too, Blanche!

Doesn't look like I'll make it to midnight :sad:
but Happy Creating, Everyone! and I'll look forward to checking in in the morning.:D

11-25-2011, 03:06 AM
Great start to the a-thon, Ibus!

11-25-2011, 04:01 AM
I am normally not into chunkies, but it is an a-thon.... and I LOVE a-thons. So chunkies it is :D. Got two backgrounds prepared, I am going for a swim with my mum and sis this morning, but I will be back!

11-25-2011, 08:21 AM
I'm home and ready for crafting!

11-25-2011, 08:58 AM
I'm up and brainstorming... I don't work that fast but I can't wait to get started!
Got a new scanner. I'm gonna go get hubby out of bed and have him hook it up this morning. I don't want to hit any snags this weekend!! :D

Warm Hugs, Carol.

I didn't make it to midnight, *grin*, cheez, the older I get the earlier I go to bed....whats up with that? I thought once the kids were all gone, I could "party" all night if I wanted to.
I'm sitting here with coffee, thinking, thinking, thinking bout chunkys...time to quit sitting and start doing!:yes::yes::yes:...............I've thunk enough already.

11-25-2011, 10:52 AM

11-25-2011, 11:19 AM
I decided to leave CPAT1 as is, no danglies. I added to CPAT2 and have two more. They're all in my gallery.

11-25-2011, 11:27 AM
:jiggy:Wanted to do a little show and tell......this is my Chunky book, its a one ring (upper L.) book, and I love danglies, so theres lots of them....think I'm gonna break it down in to two. (Its too chunkified )
and I wanted to show the front and back cover made by one of our amazing traders.

11-25-2011, 11:30 AM
Good morning, all!
Terrific chunkies, sandy! Wonderful house page, Carol!
And Ibus, that caterpillar is adorable!

I need a strong cup of tea and some inspiration...be back later...hopefully with some creations.

Just put 9 into my gallery. There are a few others available. Not sure how to remove the ones that arent....duh!

11-25-2011, 12:49 PM
These chunkies take me longer to make. Slow going. I should be cleaning my house, but I will do it another time. No fun in cleaning.

11-25-2011, 01:35 PM
I have chunky envy! I've got to get a couple of things done and then I'm off to the studio. Last night I could hardly sleep because I had so many ideas....

11-25-2011, 01:43 PM
Page two of my gallery has three more chunkies....Washed out, Son Flower, and Powerless. Please check these out.

11-25-2011, 01:48 PM
And now I have to say that chunkies are not my favourites to make. I don't know why I don't like any of my creations today. They are too simple, too plain or something. I'll publish rest of them but then I'll do something else.

11-25-2011, 02:12 PM
And here they are.

How nice to enjoy all of the art that's been posted! Early morning so the Geek Squad could come repair the TV - again. Got 2 trees up and decorated while I waited. :) Not sure if I'll get any chunkies made today but I'm inspired by what I've seen already. Wonderful!

11-25-2011, 03:15 PM
Hey Duck...where are your chunkies????

11-25-2011, 03:18 PM
Hi Sue, hope you feel better soon. That's a problematic desease. You can feel OK a while and after few minutes you have some fever. Better to stay in a bed.

11-25-2011, 03:18 PM
Hi Ducky! My husband asked few minutes ago how are you :).

Just Ducky
11-25-2011, 03:20 PM

HI gals... Lilbad... dang gal, you going chunk nuts... you sure putting up some beauties.. see how neat drawing/paiting works for chunky size ???

Sanna.... I am like you, these larger formats are not easy to work with... really a challange... say HI... to your husband..oh and give your puppy a hug for me.. or maybe the other way around... hug to husband and HI to puppy...

11-25-2011, 03:27 PM
Duck, I pm'd you. Also, what is your fav. color?

11-25-2011, 03:29 PM
Sanna.... I am like you, these larger formats are not easy to work with... really a challange... say HI... to your husband..oh and give your puppy a hug for me.. or maybe the other way around... hug to husband and HI to puppy...

Husband sends a hug to you too :laugh:. Puppy is not here because my father is camping all the week and took the dog with him (AGAIN!). But I know they are having fun when they can stay out all the week.

11-25-2011, 03:32 PM
I think I have to say good night. After working 55 hours during the last five days, I'm a bit too tired.

11-25-2011, 03:45 PM
Good night Sanna!
I think your chunkies are lovely...and hope you like them better tomorrow!

11-25-2011, 05:47 PM
Ok, I've definitely caught the chunky bug. My desk is covered in all the heavy embellishments I don't usually let myself use. I've made two. The first one I just have to keep since it's the first, and then the second is available. I'm looking forward to doing more although I'm still figuring this all out.

As far as collecting, I'm so new that it's going to be just seeing something I love.


(Keeping for myself)



11-25-2011, 06:03 PM
Great stuff posted already y'all!!!

Since I've been ill all of this past week and am way behind on coursework, I figured I'd have to skip this a-thon :( BUT it seems I might have some free time this weekend after all. Looking forward getting at least a handful made!

11-25-2011, 06:36 PM
It would help me a lot if you folks would let me know what you are collecting so I can make some and trade with you all! Just sayin'

I'm keeping track at the end of the first post of any chunky themes individuals are collecting. I am watching the thread for when folks mention their favorite themes...so check the first post under "Favorite Themes" if you are looking for theme suggestions!

11-25-2011, 06:59 PM
The other night I created some new kaliedoscopes. Just printed them off - I'm going to try to get them mounted and cut tomorrow so I can maybe play a little. I should check my stash of backgrounds also - might be something waiting to be made. The great art just keeps coming during this marathon!

11-25-2011, 07:00 PM
I am not collecting (yet..) but I love butterflies, birds, dragonflies, coffee themed, oriental/asian, Paris...

I am going to sleep now, it is midnight. I will be back tomorrow!!

11-25-2011, 07:07 PM

This makes me think of where my mother lives in South Africa. :)

11-25-2011, 07:13 PM
Does it? She's an Apache Indian, but reminds me of a Buddha. :)

11-25-2011, 07:34 PM
She reminds me of the flowersellers. No idea if they still sell flowers in the same place or if that's died out. Don't know what the PC term is now, but I knew them as Cape Coloureds. (Mixed race.)

11-25-2011, 08:13 PM
I love the variety of chunky's!
I collect just about anything-trying to branch out from my norm!
I love anything purple, tigers, elephants, orange, and silver.
Not sure if I am making ones that people want!
I can do special requests!

11-25-2011, 08:48 PM
Sue! take care of yourself, that p-monia is nasty stuff.....sending warm wishes your way , with a hot toddy....(boiling water, jigger of bourbon, squeeze fresh lemon, and heaping T. of honey....)
Ducks, youse right again, these here Chunky's take some doing, I forgot.
Heres my only one for today, gonna bust out the watercolors tomorrow and see if I can move a little faster.
Wonderful work ya'll......some I got my eye on, but will be gone before I have nuff' to trade, sigh.

11-25-2011, 08:51 PM
Can I please ask a favour of everybody? When your page is traded, please go and remove it from the A-thon gallery to the Mail Art Traded and for Swops section. It's easy enough to do. Go to the relevant Chunky, up on the right hand side is a Edit button, click on this and you get to choose the category, (Mail art is Up from the Athon one) then continue. All you then need to do is right at the bottom change Available to Traded and you won't get bothered with requests for pages that are already traded! ;)

Was at work today but off tomorrow - woot!

First chunky for this a-thon:

87254 #1

The scan doesn't really show it, but there is very sparkly purple ribbon at the top and bottom, and irridescent flower sequins on the sides (I'll add a small dot of glitter glue in the center of each flower). Fibers can be added on request.

11-25-2011, 09:54 PM

11-25-2011, 10:12 PM
First 3 from me: Scans are blurry from the "chunky" dimensional embellishments. I'm not great at danglies but if you want them I can try. Will trade chunky for chunky

great suggestion Ibus... it helps bunches to look at the A-Thon gallery to see just the available chunkys...

oh and Lilbad, we made our trade, but I sure will take any leftovers off your hands :yes:
but fat chance of you having anything left ...
everyone doing so great... and in answer to what I collect... I collect it all... I like what I see and I see what I like... at any one moment... I never have had a theme, other then ducky cards of coarse...

Gosh, you people are good at these! I spent two hours in the studio and have nothing to show for it....yet. I have lots of good chunky beginnings. I'm hoping tomorrow I can figure out how to turn them into art. One thing I've definitely got to do before next cpat (aside from stock up on fibers, danglies, and get a crop-a-dile) is do some backgrounds. I've gotten spoiled at having a ton of ATC backgrounds on hand. I'm not used to beginning from scratch.

Hey, hey, hey, all of you in chunky land. I guess some trading is going on, or not? No takers on my PMs. Is there something I'm not following? I'd like to do some trading, if not I'll just save them for next time.

hey guys, such beautiful work. i am feeling worse, not better. anyway since my hands are so shaky i won't get to join in this fun. i have, however, listed some of my 4x4's that i have already made. they are in the mail art for trade gallery. would love for all of you to run over & take a look. ducky you are doing lovely work. sanna, your work, as always, is great. thanks for all the good wishes, i appreciate it. hugs to all of you. sue

Digital chunkies. The scans blurred so terribly once I added the central embellishment that I have included an image of the original kaleidoscope so that you can see it is not blurry in real life. These look simple but the art and work is in the digital process. LE of 2. Will trade chunky for chunky.

Love everyones chunks

11-27-2011, 05:37 AM
Hey, hey, hey, all of you in chunky land. I guess some trading is going on, or not? No takers on my PMs. Is there something I'm not following? I'd like to do some trading, if not I'll just save them for next time.

I LOVE to trade

11-27-2011, 05:54 AM
Two new pages.

Goodmorning all, I have finished one chunky I made last night. I glued a napkin image on there, but it was a bit sticky. Put some gel medium over it and it was ready to scan :D

I have quite many available pages in my gallery at the moment. The new pages are in the a-thon gallery but I also have pages in the mail art gallery.

Someone asked, if I trade also for other art. I accept for example supplies in a trade. Not a problem at all.

Lovely butterfly Sanna!

Here is a new butterflies chunky from me:

I'll be offline most of the day today. I'm still making some pages and will upload them in the evening.

11-27-2011, 08:56 AM
Thanks to all those people who made lovely comments about my Chunkies - my confidence is growing (still not keen on dangles though:):skeptical:)
These will be the last Chunkies for me as it is now 10 minutes to midnight on the 27th.

I will keep dropping in tomorrow as I am sure that I will find some more that I want to trade for - goodnight all.

Hey Donna, you could always leave out the danglies if you're not too keen on them and all? My chunkies hardly ever have danglies.. partly because I don't have a whole lot of fibers'n'stuff in my stash, though mainly cause I prefer my chunkies without - they just don't seem to fit my style. Love them on others chunkies though. It all depends on the style and theme of the chunky I guess. I've traded several dangly-free chunkies and recieved both with and without danglies in return. :)

11-27-2011, 10:49 AM
Good Morning to everyone. Great art-I just love the chunkies. I'll be getting to all the PM many of you sent me as soon as I finish uploading 3 more chunkies-
In gallery

11-27-2011, 10:50 AM
Great chunkies Sharlene54!!

11-27-2011, 11:00 AM
Mornin' all ,,,,Donna, I left danglies off my cards (even tho I LOVE danglies) cause some traders like them without....(but I love your danglies, melts my butter :yes: )and your cards are wonderful.
Sharlene, nice cards gal!
Soon as I get moving around a bit, I hope to make more watercolor chunky's. (takes me awhile to get going ; )
I feel that one of the really fun things about Chunky's is that when you get them , you make a BOOK! and I Love that.

11-27-2011, 11:03 AM
Yay the problems with our internet connection have been fixed so I'm back online for real. I'm grateful to be able to read my email and check some webpages through my cellphone, but it's not ideal so I'm very happy to be able to get online from behind my desktop pc again! :) I've just uploaded a few chunkies to the gallery:

The first chunky I worked on yesterday is this one.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/390/small/1_11-179PCAT_1.jpg CPAT#1

I was inspired by Christi Tomlinson's tutorials on her website/youtube, and while I'm okay-ish with the results, there's definitely room for LOADS of improvement!!! Still, I kinda like how it turned out heh. Took me HOURS to create this chunky lol.

And then I made some Christmas/Winter holiday season themed chunkies.

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/390/small/1_11-182CPAT_4.jpg PSAT#3 (similar to #2 which I did upload to the gallery but am keeping myself :))

You know, I've never made a book out of my chunkies yet.. But I definitely should! I'm in process of framing some of the chunkies I recieved in trades and hang them in in our staircase (which has bare and boring walls that need some cheering up), which is also lotsa fun.

11-27-2011, 11:43 AM
the 2 that I have available........................... I will be making a few more.....................

11-27-2011, 12:15 PM
Good morning/afternoon/evening all you chunky making folks!

I am working on the stack of backgrounds I have piled here... should have some to share as soon as I can get awake. Two cups of tea later and I'm still stumbling around in a daze. LOL!

11-27-2011, 12:30 PM

11-27-2011, 01:47 PM
Here are probably my last ones - not sure if I have time today

11-27-2011, 01:48 PM
Nice chunkies ladies! I have a question....has anyone an idea for the best way to mail these little beauties???

11-27-2011, 01:53 PM
I usually wrap each page inside one normal printing paper, tape and seal in well and then put it in an envelope. Then it can't move inside the envelope and should travel safetier.

11-27-2011, 02:01 PM
Do u put bubble wrap around the danglies?

11-27-2011, 02:07 PM
Do u put bubble wrap around the danglies?

Usually not but I don't use much that kind danglies that would require bubble wrapping.

11-27-2011, 02:14 PM
I usually package mine in plastic baggies, then mail the thin ones with fiber danglies in small manila (or greeting card) envelopes and thicker ones (with more fragile danglies) in small bubble wrap envelopes.

11-27-2011, 02:38 PM
Ok, thanks for the hints. I still have a few more chunkies in my athon gallery if anyone wants to take a look!

11-27-2011, 03:09 PM
I think I'm finishing my last page now and then this a-thon is over in Finland. If someone still wants to trade something, just send a PM. I have asked some trades but I think there will be some available. And I still have some older available pages.

11-27-2011, 03:12 PM
Here are my available pages, made during this weekend.

Been busy this morning. Here are mine:

Digital chunkies for the marathon. The kaleidoscopes are original ink backgrounds converted into a digital file and then turned into a kaleidoscope. These look simple but the art and the work is in the digital process. Will trade chunky for chunky.

They really don't look simple! I couldn't make them. Those are your special type of art and specially that's why I love them.

11-27-2011, 03:58 PM
Thank you Sniisk!

The backgrounds are my original photo with a transparency overlay.

Left: Joy to the World Right: Merry Xmas!

My original photo. I know I just used this photo on some cards in the PSAT but I'm so addicted to these butterflies that come to visit us I couldn't resist making some chunkies. LE of 4 Will trade chunky for chunky.

Luckily, things went better today in the studio. :) Just so you know, I've posted the backs of these in my gallery, but I'm not putting them in the thread because it's too confusing (and I'm running out of time.)
