View Full Version : New Year Chunky-Page-A-Thon (CPAT): January 6-8, 2012!

01-04-2012, 02:18 PM
Welcome to the New Year Chunky Page A-Thon (CPAT)

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 Thursday midnight) on Friday January 6, 2012 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday January 8, 2012

*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.

OK...let's celebrate the New Year by making Chunky Pages!
Anyone is welcome to participate...info in the first post.
Please let me know if there are any questions.

And I would be glad to keep a *Favorite Themes* list in the first post, like I did for the November CPAT.
Just list theme you are collecting...and I will put them in the first post for easy access!

01-04-2012, 02:36 PM
I'm looking forward to this. I have a few backgrounds made and hope to make a few more ahead of time. I collect everything at this point. :)

01-04-2012, 03:05 PM
While I was making backgrounds for the ATART I made some for this but I need to dig out my craft room - can't create without making a mess!

01-04-2012, 03:09 PM
Never did a chunky book page, would like to try, but I am only there for sunday and did not prepare anything:cry: Grandchildren are dropped at our place, no school and...rubiola! Not one second free....I will check in whenever I can, admiring!

Rogue Gal
01-04-2012, 03:23 PM
Woot! I've been prepping backgrounds like crazy - let's hope my muse lets me play!

01-04-2012, 03:28 PM
Wow, another athon, I love them- they feed my addiction, Hope I get some time to play

01-04-2012, 04:52 PM
Uh-oh! I could be in trouble again! :eek:

01-04-2012, 04:55 PM

Rogue Gal
01-04-2012, 04:58 PM

01-05-2012, 03:45 AM
I've been cutting out card and doing backgrounds and I have even done a couple of backs as I think they are just as important as the fronts. The pressure is on - only 3 hours and 15minutes until Chunky time LOL :D

01-05-2012, 03:46 AM
I might just give it a shot... not fond of chunky but have some nice pics too big for ATCs!

01-05-2012, 07:46 AM
I don't think I will be playing in the athon, all 'arted' out still from last weekend, but I am starting a 'backgrounds' swap, as we all used so many card for the post Xmas atart, so join in if you wanna. Hugs to you all, you are in great hands with MRJ at the helm!

01-05-2012, 09:53 AM

01-05-2012, 11:22 AM

01-05-2012, 11:29 AM

01-05-2012, 03:09 PM

01-05-2012, 03:16 PM
I was looking forward to the chunky-a-thon even more than at ATART, but unless I get really well really fast, I don't think I'll be able to play, but I'll sure be checking out the eyecandy...

01-05-2012, 03:39 PM
Can hardly wait to start.....I have 14 chunky books finished or in progress so know I will find lots in this AThon that I want........I especially need monochromatic, Zetti and orange pages...Am busy today doing backgrounds!!

01-05-2012, 04:45 PM
Wonderful pages, Cathy!

01-05-2012, 04:47 PM
Had some suggestions for some general popular themes for pages ~

* Valentines (maybe a pink, red, lavender, all valentine colors?)
* "Get your Chunk On." which would be lots of danglies etc.
* "Good hot coffee, tea, or hot chocolate for cold days"
* "Don't forget to feed the birdies"
* "Use something left over from the Holidays"

I listed them in the first post, along with participant's favorite themes!

01-05-2012, 04:47 PM
wonderful start girls, I still have most of the Queenly Chunkies left over from ATART, so feel free to raid my gallery!
have got a start on a series of chunkies that are much inspired by a wonderful book I got for Christmas called Paper Couture.. owwiiiee that book is so cool!

01-05-2012, 06:05 PM
I hope to play but not sure whether circumstances will permit.. will see. I have plenty of blanks ready to go!

01-05-2012, 06:07 PM
And ohhh somehow I thought we'd start this Saturday.. so I was quite surprised to see the first Chunkies come in from "down under" already. But it's a Friday start! :D

01-05-2012, 07:16 PM
We have the advantage at the beginning of the swap Craftvox but the other side of the world has the last word LOL. Have been crafting this morning - I am off work until the end of next week so the athons have been a welcome addition to my holidays. I'll post what I have been making after i've had some lunch.:D

01-05-2012, 07:46 PM
I'm going to start some backs this evening and dream about themes while I'm sleeping. Hope to get a few chunkies done after work :( tomorrow!

01-05-2012, 07:49 PM
Happy dreaming, Janjo!

01-05-2012, 09:01 PM
Yay, can't wait!!!

01-05-2012, 09:21 PM
Oooh, so glad I decided to check out the site today. I'm not working tomorrow, so maybe I can play. I need to add some pages to my books! I'll be checking in to see what everyone is doing!!

01-06-2012, 04:47 PM
Ok, I'm all over the map on this. From the sublime to the ridiculous, you choose which is which. (My only explanation to the fish is a strange juxtaposition of stuff on my desk.) I didn't scan backs. They're covered either partially or completely in matching paper and signed.





01-06-2012, 04:50 PM
Thank you Cathy!

Cynthia - Love the fish! Can't stop laughing!:laugh: It's so great when serendipity strikes.

Wonderful art, everyone!

I know that Christmas has come and gone, but I couldn't resist making a few chunkies with these great napkins that I found at an after-Christmas sale. Anything that looks yellow or brown is actually gold (darn scanner), and fibers can be added on request.

Kristin, I'm loving your kittehs - "The sky is falling..." LOL!

Nanner, I love those fishies, especially the one about to chomp down on that worm!

These two pictures are of the same page, but one is scanned before the dimensional flower was added so you can see it less blurry. The flower sequins came out really pale in the scan - they are actually a bright pink.

Isn't this something Sharlene?! The joggers are out in shorts and t-shirts.

Cathy, I hosted a circus chunky swap a few years ago - it was great fun and I'd say we're more than due for a new one so we can add to our books! Let me know if you start it so I can play.

01-07-2012, 06:10 PM
Well I've just written up the Circus swap :goofy: - but I'm debating on whether or not to post it now or wait until after ARTzona. Probably wouldn't take much to convince me to start it now though. tee hee hee - I do love the circus and it is a chunky-athon weekend.... ;)

Collages of Mask, Rabbit, Dragon head, Dragon body,and drama Mama, all on operatic background. After all the hours of hard work, realised width is not quite 4"! :shocked::arghh: Just 1 mark off. Will back w 4"x4" to make up the difference.
okay, here is the story... usually there is an opera to usher in the new year. This year being the Dragon year. I had the symbolic fierce looking mask to scare the rabbit. Poor thing looked scared alright! As you can see, it is headed South w/ ears thrown back!

01-08-2012, 01:01 AM

chunky 9: Shall I?
Collage 4 items - rooster, native woman, native market scene, flower border.
This is a scene of a native 'wet' market where fresh fowls and vegetables are sold. Not so native actually, Singapore too has them. One of the criteria when looking for a house to buy.
Native woman is glued only on lower half, view of full native scene behind her head. The 'Shall I' is a question of whether to buy the rooster for food or as a pet used for fighting. Quite common among Malay natives to have fighting cock as they are termed.

chunky 10: Returning from the sea.
Collage of fishes, scene of fishermen returning with their 'catch'.
Credit: artist Cheng Chong Swee - watercolor 1972 with the same title.

The painting showed native fishermen returning from the sea and getting ready to sell to the fish mongers from the wet market. In Singapore we have the same and there are organised tours bringing locals to the fisheries. I think that's the word. They can also buy fresh catch direct from the fishermen at a much cheaper price!

01-08-2012, 11:29 AM

Great chunkies just keep coming! Thank you to Martha for another fun marathon. I was in the mood for chunkies. ;) My goal this week is to work on getting everything sorted and packaged from the two marathons and get things mailed by the weekend. All of my international trades will require customs forms and a trip to the PO but I have the forms in hand to fill out ahead of time. Thank you to everyone for another fun weekend. Your art always inspires me!

WOW - very impressive volume of work! I just can't crank them out like some of you artists.

In addition to the a-thon, I had to create a PIF chunky this weekend - just sharing 'cause it came out pretty cute.

I'm SO glad folks had fun and got inspired to create chunkies!!

I LOVED looking at all the pages and saw many I would have loved to trade for...but it just wasn't to be for me this weekend. :err:

Thank you so much for hosting Martha. I've had fun creatging.

My plan was to do a mail out tomorrow of my chunkies and ATART art but I had to go to the dentist this morning and what was going to be a filling turned out to be an extraction. It was a stubborn little bugger too. I thought she's never get it out. Result is that now i'm in quite a lot of pain so going to snuggle up on the sofa and feel sorry for myself LOL I'll pack up my art tomorrow and mail Wednesday instead now.

I still have some chunkies left in my gallery if anyone wants to trade and if i've traded with you and you want another let me know.

Same as on New Year's ATART thread. I'm going to need a little time getting these packed and in the mail, but they will get in the mail. :)

01-11-2012, 05:58 AM
My art is all packed up and ready to be mailed. I'm still not feeling good so can't get up the post office so my son will mail it for me tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

01-11-2012, 10:48 AM
Addifferentstory - you are still way ahead of me. I hope you feel better soon.

I spent the morning adding charms to all of my trades and I'm happy with how they turned out. (I'm never very sure of myself when it comes to adding danglies or fibers.) I'll work on getting things protected/packaged next while the fridge repair guy is here. (Hopefully 5th time is the charm.) Still planning on getting things out at the end of this week. :)

Thanks for hosting, martha dear! Thanks for playing, lovely arteests!

Feel better, Lynne. :wubclub:

Last of my trades are going out tomorrow!

01-13-2012, 06:14 AM
All my trades (except Cee-emm's) were posted on Jan 10th - just finishing the trades I made with Cee-emm during the ATART - should be in the mail by Monday.

Thanks for a fantastic CPAT, Martha - just what I needed.:)

01-13-2012, 04:10 PM
Everything got mailed today. You all know I try to put stamps on everything I mail but I had 2 full bags of envelopes that had to be weighed etc and I am a little pressed for time so I'm afriad everything got a meter strip this time. I'll try to do better next time.

This was a lot of fun - 2 big marathons and fabulous trades! :)

01-14-2012, 02:42 AM
All chunkies danglified, wrapped, packaged..ready for the Post Office first thing Monday!
It was great fun!!

01-14-2012, 06:22 AM
All my trades were mailed on Thursday.

01-14-2012, 08:46 AM
Most of my envies have been mailed out this past week, some went out on Monday, some more on Wednesday and there's three more are going out today. There's just two envies waiting to be mailed out still - KESagers and Donnacr, yours will be following shortly, will keep you posted in PM (as I have:)).

My returns are trickling in which is surely brightining up an otherwise rather stressful week!

Oh wait, I just realize this was meant for the ATART thread, as unfortunately I haven't really been able to play in the CPAT this weekend.. But well, I'm sure most of you read both threads! :P
