Thursday: APCs &/OR monochrome

Friday: non-ATC &/OR with text

Saturday: non-ATC &/OR things with wings

Sunday: New Year (resolutions, greetings, party, etc) &/OR something new (new technique)

Monday: all the good things in life &/OR something new


This a-thon is open to everyone and every kind levels and types of art.

What IS an A-THON?
It’s a marathon when you can create art, done over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

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.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_64.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 'small' or 's'.

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 me, minnkel, craqftyvox or jensaz, 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.

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

Subsrcibing! Wooo.
so the last athon I was in I heard alot of people talking about preparing. What do you do to prepare for an athon

sniisk
12-21-2011, 12:34 PM
About preparing: First I cut the blanks. Then I try to decide the themes I'm using and find some pictures. If I'm using stamped images, I stamp them beforehand. I organize papers so that I have blue papers in one pile, green papers in another pile etc. If I'm using cancelled postage stamps, I cut them so they are ready to use. Sometimes I paint some papers if I'm going to use painted papers.

At the moment I'm having to pack my stuff up, as it's spread over the dining room table and we need it for dinner Sunday! This time though I'm not just throwing stuff in anywhere, I'm packing it in an orderly manner, so I can find it again!

I had to pack up my stuff too :yes:. I had people over for dinner last Sunday and I do need the table this Sunday, so I am trying not to make a lot of mess... but I really needed to glue something, so I made some inchie backgrounds :D

Good luck Ibus with keeping your stuff organised, my art space has an infestation of Mess-Faeries and continually needs tidying up again!!

I'm getting my paper and others things organized and ready to make ATCs and some chunkies. I like to make backgrounds and make the backs.

I hope to trade with lots of you.

Happy Holidays to all.

Just bought a pack with 8 of my favourite white glue pens, so Im ready to stick to it:D. I also managed to go into the craft store, buy the glue and NOTHING ELSE!!!!!! So there is hope that I may be able to fit my bed into my otherwise craft supplies-filled apartment:D:D:D

Am I the only one who thinks it's outrageous for guests to think they can sit at a table? :D

I've been kind of low energy this week, but I have been working on a few backgrounds. I think I'll mostly be doing atcs and apcs, but maybe some chunkies, too.

Blanche
12-22-2011, 04:40 PM
My 'stuff' has long since been moved from the dining room table out to 'The Shed', my creative workplace. But now the table is covered with Christmasy things.. lol :goofy:
We won't be hosting any meals from here out through the big day, so I guess that 's ok the table is covered.
I will be working on swap cards, ATCs & APCs for trade, and long neglected jewelery. I may make some inchies.
I have re-done a few of the chunkies I made in the CPAT that were't traded and added dangles. I will trade those for ATCs. I have not found a workable way to store them yet, so any suggestions are welcome as I do love them, but have not found space to store a lot of them.

Really looking forward to this a thon!!!!:jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:

Cee......I have an a messy faery infestation too~ their so quick I can never see them moving stuff around, dropping bits and pieces on floor , hiding scissors, and glue sticks.
When they tire of messing up my art space, they mess up the kitchen....silly things.

I doubt I'll be able to resist -- especially on the APC days. I guess we don't have to start our New Year's resolutions until AFTER the athon, right?

12-23-2011, 03:45 PM
really looking forward to this a-thon. hey blanche the best way to store chunkies is to buy a cd storage zip bag on ebay. your chunkies fit beautifully. i say ebay because i can't find anything that works in my local (very small town) walmart.

Oh oh! Im in trouble... My local craft store starts sale on tuesday - it's only 10 min walk... And as if that was not enough, I just got an e-mail from my favourite Danish online craft store; they have everything 20% off till new years..!

So I guess I'll need to find somewhere else to sleep soon - being pushed out by all the craft supplies:D

Merry Christmas all!!

Only 2 more days to scratch of the calendar until the ATART!!


About preparing: First I cut the blanks. Then I try to decide the themes I'm using and find some pictures. If I'm using stamped images, I stamp them beforehand. I organize papers so that I have blue papers in one pile, green papers in another pile etc. If I'm using cancelled postage stamps, I cut them so they are ready to use. Sometimes I paint some papers if I'm going to use painted papers.

That's such a good idea Sniisk, to really prepare for the ATART. Most of the time I think up ideas what to create *while* I'm crafting.. which sometimes results in messing around with my stuff and not being able to come up with anything LOL, so frustrating. Planning ahead and sorting through stuff and getting some things ready to go before a thon is such a good idea, will get the creative juices flowing well in time too!


At the moment I'm having to pack my stuff up, as it's spread over the dining room table and we need it for dinner Sunday! This time though I'm not just throwing stuff in anywhere, I'm packing it in an orderly manner, so I can find it again!

I've been putting of crafting for the past couple of evenings since I didn't want to mess up the kitchen table before the holidays - not that we're hosting anything but the downstairs is nice and tidy and decorated and I didn't want to mess that up LOL. But I think that plan just got tossed out of the window ;) I have about 2 hours left before we're heading to my mums for Christmas brunch.... ! :yes:

Gina and I will help you thoroughly mess it back up on Wednesday Kitty, no worries!! :D

Wow I'm impressed.. that so never happens to me when I need to go to the craftstore to buy just one thing! :laugh: Well done!! So when are you going back for the rest of the fun stuff you saw? ;)

I'm gonna be a bit late; sale starts tuesday and I have just found some surplus money on my budget:D. So crafts store and clothes store; I've lost 16 kg since May so my pants keep sliding down:D. I wont buy too much - clothes that is - as I plan to loose a bit more:)

But I got on with my craft supplies reorganization today - so I'm all ready after the sales raid!

Gee....I thought they had ALL moved to my studio just before Christmas!!!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had wonderful times for Christmas!! I'm planning to at least find my glue sticks tomorrow (Monday) so I'll be ready to go. My studio has been a center for quilts, pointy princess hats and other little goodies for Christmas presents. Now it is a disaster area.....even more than usual!! If I don't get at least SOME cleaning done tomorrow I won't be able to put a whole ATC together on Tuesday! My cutting boards are still on the floor from squaring up the quilt...that is how far behind I am. And my path from the door to my computer is getting smaller by the day (if only I was getting smaller by the day! :confused:)

Sounds like a lot of you are ready to hit the ground running! I'll see you then!!!

2 hours to go until pumpkin time and the start of the ATART if you live east coast of Australia. I think that means anyone in NZ is about good to go. Donnacr (don't want to confuse anyone else by just referring to her as mum :D) was up until 5am this morning finishing a last minute Boxing Day present so I'm not sure if she'll be up bright and early tomorrow or not. I'm also kidnapping her for a few family activities as it's my last day before I fly back home but I'm sure she'll be checking in when ever she gets a chance. I can see the fight for the computer getting ugly. ;)

How is everyone's preparation going?

sniisk
12-26-2011, 11:56 AM
I arrived back home about an hour ago. Now I have some hours time to prepare everyhting and am able to start making ATCs in the morning when I wake up. I don't think I'll be awake when it's midnight here.

These three cards are for the Be Still My Heart Swap. Somehow, the scan did not do any justice to the colors of Yellow and Pink in card 7.

card 6: valentine bear, collage and origami.
card 7: tree of love, collage and origami.
card 8: Blowing you a valentine kiss -origami, collage on background card from sharlene in background swap.

Just got home from Tweede Kerstdag dinner (Boxing Day here is called Second Christmas Day heh) and realized that while we were stuffing ourselves with a lovely gourmet dinner, in Australia the ATART has already long begun!! Great start Miloccpep! :D

2 hours and 45 minutes to go here... watching some tv with the hubs - some time together before he leaves to go to work his first out of 3 nightshifts - but as soon as he's out of the door I'm pulling out my craft supplies and will redo the kitchen into a crafting palace!! I'm realy not trying to get rid of you honey... ;) ATART weeeh!

I'm knackered though so I don't think I'll be able to get much done before crashing into my bed, but at least all will be ready to go for when I get up in the morning!

Moosecastle
12-26-2011, 04:44 PM
I think I'll have to wait till morning as well. I too have been celebrating Second Christmas Day (it's called that in Denmark too) - family and friends gathered and ate and played parcel game and ate:D. So I've got a bit of digesting to do:wub:.

Will check in before I'm of for sale at the crafts store :jiggy:

Good to see there are a few cards up already. Don't forget, if you're stuck for inspiration the optional challenge for day one is Christmas &/OR completing at least one ATC that's been sitting unfinished for far too long.

Hope everyone sleeps well and is ready to go whenever their timezone ticks over to midnight (or once they wake up). :)

20 minutes to midnight and I'm sitting here pondering whether or not to stay up till after midnight so I can start the ATART with some actual art as well, but I'm afraid the bed is going to win over the crafting table as I'm in quite a bit of pain due to a cracked molar and jaw infection.. :( I'll be back in the morning though to aww and ohh over all your lovely creations -- and have fun you States-side folks in an hour or 6 when the ATART is starting on the east coast :)

so glad to see you WeAre138! ive missed you and your wonderful art!

still about 7 hours to go here til we can start. my kids gave me the day off yesterday (best gift ever!) so im cooking Christmas dinner today and then we'll probably go out to see the giant tree in Austin. hopefully i wont be too pooped to clean everything up and pull everything out so i can get to some creating. my mailbox is dying of neglect! hoping to make up for that this week. :D

I'm going out to my night of cards with my girl friends-our Monday night diversion. I'll be home about 11:30. If I'm not to pooped, I'll make a card or two, let them dry and post in the morning.

Maybe, by the time I come home tonight, I'll see some great art from the other side of the world. Happy creating to all. LOL:idea:

I just realised that the athon has been 'legal' here in New Zealand for just over 12 hours and I haven't even got my backgrounds sorted yet. We are preparing for the son and his family to arrive tomorrow and as DIL is allergic to cats (and we have 6!!!) we are having to do an extra special job on the cleaning :D

Hopefully will get a chance later today to make some cards. Happy holidays everyone.

Was awoken by the sound of lotsa glass breaking, so had to make a round through the house to make sure it wasn't any of our window or the cats throwing vases of shelves or anything (though it sounded to be coming from outside so I also to a good peak out of the window, but couldnt spot anything). So as I was awake now anyway, I figured to check in real quick. Great stuff posted already! Shame 5am is a lil early to get up for real and join in on the fun (bet that would surprise the hubby if he found me at the kitchentable crafting upon returning home from his nightshift at 7.30 haha!), but I'll be back in a few hours! :)

Love pic with the bench all surrounded by water. Looks like some kind of city art:D.

As to the swing set; the upper beam looks like it would have snapped soon anyway, so perhaps a good place for that tree to fall?!

How have your woods fared? When Denmark had "The Big Hurricane of 1998" (!) huge areas of pine trees/needle trees snapped like twigs. It looked like shelled war zones!

DISAPPOINTING TIMES 10!!!!

It was only a select group of x-mas items that was on sale.... I was so disappointed I had to buy 2 of their button mixes, so I can amuse myself by sorting through them:D

And the online store that has 20% of everything; the coupon code doesnt work... You have to put your order in between x-mas and new year to get the rebate - but the company is on holiday untill jan 2nd..! Amateurs!!!! :arghh:

So it will be a while before Im in any kind of creating or apprasing mood! I will be back though - promise:wubclub:

I think the woods are quite OK. There was a terrible summer storm two years ago and then we had a lot more damage and many many houses were totally destroyed. And in some parts of Finland it really was like a war zone then. But now I think it's much better result. The biggest damage is that the roads are flooding and it's not possible to walk outside because of the too heavy wind. At least one older man died yerterday when a tree fell down but I hope he was the only one.

I normally post my stuff for the thons in the A-Thon Gallery (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?c=17), then once a card has traded I move it to the 'traded' gallery. During the a-thon I keep up with the thread to drool over all the lovely art posted, and also visit the A-Thon gallery to see all of the other beauties that people have made that weren't posted into the thread. This way there's just one/two places I need to keep up with rather then scout everyones personal available galleries :) Also since this is an ATART so there's not just ATCs but also other stuff like chunkies etc so tis easiest to just have to check one place imho!:) Then a week or some after the a-thon I move any of the available pieces from the a-thon gallery into my personal one.

Beautiful art posted y'all!!

I had hoped to have a few cards available by now as well, but most of my available time so far to day have been consumed by talking to the police.. The glass breaking I heard around 5am that woke me up happened to have been a burglary across the street.. when I went out to run some errands I noticed the broken glass and busted in window. Since it looked like no one was home I decided to call the police to check whether they had recieved a call about the address yet, which they hadn't. So I waited until they arrived, etc. This has been the umptiest (attempt to) break-in on our block lately.. I don't like that thought at all. So I just got back from my errands finally, now gotte get some work done and then I can finally get me some craft time as well!!

I have been working on something a bit bigger than atc's. Attached are pictures of the quilt I have been machine quilting the last couple of days. Size of this baby is around 40"x40" (1 square metre). It is almost finished now. On the picture from the front you see Catrien as well, she has to sample it. The back shows how intense the quilting is. Only the palm trees need a bit more definition. But I am planning to make some atc's today as well :v_spin:

Lovely quilts Wil! And.. is Catrien up for trade as well!!? :yes: She's a beautiful cat!! I <3 cats

Our kitties are always very interested in what I'm working on as well and love to 'help' me (more like: jumping right on top of everything, putting muddy paws on things, sniffling and sometimes wakling straight over my ink pads or glue;)). And ofcourse they need to check the quality of things /nods But while the crafties they play with are often for trade, the kitties are very much to stay with us! :yes:

I have the same thing with my dog. He seems to think he's small enough to sit in my lap if I'm drawing...
He's a collie/spaniel/lab sort of cross so he's slightly big for that. Here's a pic of Charlie getting far too close :P

I mean, we have horrible natural disaters (glad your ok, Sanna, I hated to see the beautiful old trees torn up), two traders with tooth aches, break ins at neighsbor house, (which is enough to scare anyone) I think sick children too, ohmy, and I know I've left someone out, sorry, I have bad case of CRS.

Good morning everyone..or mid-morning here. We all got a late start at our house. Still recuperating from Christmas. Yesterday I had ZERO energy. Felt like I had been run over by a train - the whole day is just a blur. Not sure I was even awake for it! Down side of that is that my glue stick is STILL missing! First priority after checking in here!

It just doesn't pay to sleep during an athon!! Spent the better part of an hour going back through the post and drooling over so much beautiful art!!

Sniisk - OH SO GLAD that you are all OK!! but you might want to change the caption on the last of your pics to "WAS a road" :laugh:

Miloccpep - Had never heard of Ed Emberley so had to google it and what a clever idea! I see a fun project in the future with my 4 year old granddaughter!! Thanks!

Craftyvox - One break-in would scare me! but several??? YUCK!!

thatgeekyartgirl - HATE tooth issues! Hope you can get a dentist to take care of it really soon! Takes the fun out of so much!! But glad you are using ART to distract you!!

Hope everyone is catching up on sleep and art! I'm off to find ye olde glue stick so I can join in on the fun!!

It was so odd.. I had just told the hubby before we went out yesterday for Second Christmas Day Dinner at friends that maybe we should leave the lights on pretending we were at home. Years ago my mums house got burglared on Christmas Day and I guess it stuck with me heh. Hubby told me I was paranoid for no reason and no one would break in to our home (but we still left the lights on hah).. and then half a day later this! :confused:

You're right to be paranoid, Craftyvox. I work in this field and while people like to think lightning wont strike twice, the chances of being the target of a burglary actually increase if there is a successful burglary in your area, especially if it's your place they target first. Some criminals actually use the first break in to scout around to find items they want and check out what kind of security is in place.

Soooo true! And we get to reap the results! I believe artists are a tough bunch to keep from their art!

Decided to get at least one in before I have to go feed the others (husband, son and granddaughter) hmmmmm wonder if they would like to order pizze every night during the ATART????? In the meantime....Christmas leftovers for lunch for a few days I'm afraid! I'll be posting my cards to the athon gallery until they are traded then remove them. I'll also try to keep them updated on this thread as to which ones are available and which are traded.

Well, it's 5am on Day 2 here in Australia. I just can't sleep so I thought I'd pop online and check out the art. There's some good stuff going up and it looks like a fair bit of trading too. I'm catching up with some girlfriends this morning and then flying back home but I'm thinking of squeezing in some landscapes at the end of the day. Good crafting to everyone!

Must be post-christmas slowness.. I know I'm feeling it too haha. And I remember your local pizza place serves pretty good pizza so if Gina&you are game for pizza, I'm game for pizza!! :yes:

I just sat at the kitchen table where I spread out all my lovely craft supplies, but inspiration just didn't want to hit me.. so I came back to the thread to browse by all y'alls ATCs instead! I only been away from the site for a couple of hours max and so many new stuff has been posted! Looks like we're all having fun :)

Luckily indeed this ATART will last into 2012 so plenty of time still to find that can of inspiration back. :idea:

Some criminals actually use the first break in to scout around to find items they want and check out what kind of security is in place.

I spoke to the brother of the neighbor whose house got broken into overnight, and apperently this is the second time in a month they've been burglared. First time the whole house got searched but only one jewelry box taken, this time they've gotten quite a bit more loot it seems. Tis almost as if the first time they just came to scout whether anything of interest was to be grabbed, and then waited for a better oppertunity to come get it! So odd.

Hubs and I have checked all windows to check whether they were properly closed ánd made sure they were all locked (the handles have small locks built in to where they can't be turned to open the window). We might not be able to keep folks from trying to break in, but at least we can make it as hard as possible. He also said he'd feel better if I would actually lock the front door before going to bed (the door can't be opened from the outside even if tis not locked, but locking it puts 3 deadbolts in place for extra security). And I'll just be keeping both the phone and a baseball bat next to my bed just in case! Am not going to let paranoia take over though, I need some proper nights sleep haha! And if I hear anything out of the ordinary, I now know to call the cops right away!

I could always catapult ATCs at them.. wonder whether that'd scare them away?!:P My mounted stamps might hit their target harder though... :goofy:

I don't have anything to trade yet today so I'll just share the pet portrait commission I'm working on. This is Henrie's photo and the Henrie I created from hand torn paper in the first pic. A close up of my work (2nd Pic) and this is Henrie against the canvas I created for him. Now I just have to adhere him and put on several UV protective coats so he'll be ready to ship out.

Wow-RobbyGirl. The pet portraits are impressive. I can't imagine how long it took for you to complete them.

LOL about 15-20 hours all told :) I love doing them though!

With narrower APCs, I just list that they're smaller. You can put them on an atc background, but I like being able to see the back of the playing card.

A few from me today. I lost time as I had to stop and clean my desk a little. Even by my standards, it was a mess!

I wish I was in Holland and could join the Dutch Dames!! Now are you even going to have time to post in here - or will you keep all of your jokes to yourselves?! :D

I do plan on sorta keeping track of the thread, but who knows we might be :chatterbox::chatterbox: so much I forget! :goofy:


Or glue them onto an atc sized card.

That's an idea as well, but then the background goes lost which is part of the fun of APCs I thought kinda?


Amazing art - thankfully this eye candy is not fattening!!! :jiggy:

I know!! :goofy:

Aye that was what I was thinking.. I haven't actually made any APCs yet at all, for the reason that I thought the playing cards had to be ATC size and mine weren't.. but I might give it a try during this ATART, after all tis one of the themes! An APC always shows the number and color/suit of the card in one of the corners right?

Wowsa!!! lovin' the art. Monarch , glad your making chunkies, I think I will too,
Nancy, hon, I gots the "moving slow blues too"......guess it comes with the territory.
so many cards I wanted to comment on, but can't remember who...darn....next time I'm gonna write it down as I scroll thread.
We've got some hot artists on this ATART............Yay!!!:jiggy::jiggy::jiggy:
ah, er, someone said something about "thank goodness art is not fattening, oh dear, in one of my thumbnails you'll see two of my Christmas presents...Bombay India Ink on left, half eaten box of chocolates on right.
I thought they went together................:laugh:
I used the Bombay India inks for the two atc's......I really like the ink, it works like watercolor, in that its nice and transparent....brighter colors than my watercolors, and the ink acts like acrylic ,cause once its down on paper, more water won't smoosh it around.:yes:

1. "Bloom"~~traded
2. "Spring Snow" on hold for Weavershand
3 "art and chocolate ; )

I have been making art today honest, just can't post here for whatever reason. Feel free to look in my gallery if your interested. I have one chunky page done, and some ATCs for a swap. I still have about 4 other chunky pages sketched out and mid way colored.
