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

WHAT TO MAKE ~
*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.

HOW IT WORKS ~
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.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE ~
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!

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.
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:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2115

NEW TO A-THONS?
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.

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

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, 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.

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

mrubyjean
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:

CynthiaSillitoe
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!

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

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!

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?

You can post them one after another when they are ready. I wouldn't wait the the end of the weekend.

Ibus

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!

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.

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! ;)

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.

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.

Thanks to all those people who made lovely comments about my Chunkies - my confidence is growing (still not keen on dangles though:):skeptical:)

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. :)

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 ; )

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.

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.

Nice chunkies ladies! I have a question....has anyone an idea for the best way to mail these little beauties???

sniisk
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.

lilbad
11-27-2011, 02:01 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.

mrubyjean
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.
