"EASTER"-a-thon, All-Types-Art-a-thon

sniisk, Sharlene54 and Just Ducky are hosting

The False Start: just start making the cards on Thursday :).
Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Friday morning, April 6, 2012
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Monday evening, April 9, 2012.
Don't want to stop yet? Let's continue on Tuesday!

This weekend we will :
1) Create art of any type to show and tell: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, bookmarks, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, gothic arches, post cards, altered tins – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create.
And we'll be collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, zentangles, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting, using postage stamps, creating Found Poetry, tea bag folding, transparencies... you name it!
2) Show what lovely creations you've made
3) Trade art - if you wish.
4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
5) Feel free to ask questions in the thread


Friday: Weird animals, wings
Saturday: 4 ATC series, APCs
Sunday: Easter, complementary colours
Monday: Spring flowers, something else but no paper
(Themes are ENTIRELY optional. Create whatever is speaking to you today.)

ALSO NOTE that your work does NOT have to be for trade. If you’re working on swaps or a quilt or your journal, show us whatever you’re working on today.

What IS an a-thon?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art, done over the same day and time in each time zone. It’s kind of like we were all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.

HOW IT WORKS: At 12:01 am on Friday, April 6th (your time zone--which is really Midnight on Thursday if you think about it!) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to the A-Thon Gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the event time. Trading and chatting ensues.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art or goody bag you must have, 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.

From your atcsforall.com gallery:
It’s easiest to have two windows open. I can create another "tab" and get to my gallery in one and be in my post reply box in the other.
Internet Explorer
1 Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu has “properties” at the bottom.
2) Right click on “properties”, and it will show you Address (URL). Highlight the address/url and copy (Ctrl C).
Then follow steps 3 - 5

Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

Mozella Firefox
1) Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location” (which is about 2/3 down the list for me)
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
Then follow steps 3 - 5

3) Go to your post in the thread and click on the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
4) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) 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) Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.
[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Maygar_Posta-traded.jpg [/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

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, feel free to pm your host, 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.

04-04-2012, 01:29 PM
I plan to play as much as I can. Have some backgrounds ready and some pieces pulled together.

04-04-2012, 01:42 PM
I know we haven't started yet but I came across something today while roaming the internet and HAD to post it. It is not for trade....no art involved at all (except the expert use of a glue stick and a printer!) It's for Wil.....

Hi everyone, 3 hrs to go for my official start...soooo excited...Thank you Sniisk, Sharlene54 and Just Ducky for hosting. I'm looking forward to a great weekend...I'll Be Back! lol

It's starting on Friday! You cannot start before me :).

04-05-2012, 02:41 AM
Really? Your Easter is starting today? We'll start tomorrow. Or, actually, today evening but very late.

Should we start today? It's OK. I can play today and would love to have more time to play :).

04-05-2012, 03:21 AM
Funny how we all are able to stand tall when it comes to playing ;)

I won´t be able to play before the afternoon, I´m waiting for my MIL so we can do our weekly grocery shopping. BLAH! Unfortunately hubby wants me to cook something, so I have to do the shopping. I would think pizza service during an AThon would do, too. LOL

04-05-2012, 06:09 AM
but it's called Skærtorsdag!

It's exactly the same here. But it's not an official holiday.

04-05-2012, 06:25 AM
I'm allll ready! Has it started yet or should I wait till after (European) midnight?

04-05-2012, 06:32 AM

Gorgeous dangly earrings, Midnite! It's an ART-athon. SO anything goes.

04-05-2012, 02:07 PM
These are ATC-sized, folded greeting cards. On the inside is a little text in German and English ( I was too lazy to scan this **LOL**), the back is just like a regular ATC.

Will trade for ATCs :)

Hey Tinka-upload all the cards you want. Maybe you'll make the first trade.

Monarch-mad for your "Mad Tea Party" card

Jewels-I love zentangles. I wish I could do that.

Nitemare420me-great earrings. I have made some recently. I"ll try to upload 1 or 2 pairs for trade

Evalila-great cards-I always liked pink and green together. Very springlike.

04-05-2012, 02:29 PM
We have had a wonderful start! I made something but because it's very dark here and I don't have good lights, I'll take the pics tomorrow when we have daylight again. I hope we'll have another nice, warn and sunny day tomorrow.

04-05-2012, 02:29 PM
Good night and keep making lovely art :).

04-05-2012, 02:33 PM
Hmm....I'll be painting rocks today and tomorrow for the church sale. Do they count? They're largely the churchy style...:D

04-05-2012, 02:34 PM
Paint + rocks = art. Yes that belongs to ATART :).

04-05-2012, 03:00 PM
Painted rocks is definitely art. I bought a painted rock of a racoon. It is a wonderful.

04-05-2012, 03:25 PM
Wow! fab start! Jewels...I just LOVE the zentangled Kitty! I'm planning on working hard tomorrow on all sorts or things. I have a craft fair in a couple of weeks time and need to build up some stock, so as well as cards for trade, expect to see crystal rings, wooden pendants woollen corsages and maybe some magic wands in the mix!

Wonderful Stuff being posted!

I was working on swap cards, and I just discovered the joy of packing tape transfers! I didn't know that we were starting early though. XD

Dug through my "Tool Box" and found all of those cool green backgrounds that I made for the last a-thon, though never got around to using. Hmmm....I thikn I'm going to dig through my scrap box and see what I can come up with.

04-05-2012, 09:30 PM
Glad to see so many with us today and nite. I was able to finish 2 today. I didn't think I would have any time to art, but I was determined to find the time. Shopping, cooking, my morning walk, doctor's appointment, picking my daughter up from work and I'm asked all the time now that I'm retired, "What do you do all day?"

04-06-2012, 01:16 AM
What a fantastic day I have had - I have had the whole day to do my art - I have another 5 cards made which I will upload soon. I may not have much time for the rest of the weekend so I am doing as much as I can now. I still have some hours left this evening as well. But for now I had better go and make some tea for hubby and me

04-06-2012, 01:22 AM
Some great art already from yous!
I didn't realize the athon was starting early either.
I've been working on paper mache fish this evening. The armatures are now made and I'm experimenting with joint compound on a few. The fish have come to a standstill for a few hours while the JC dries.
I'll have to drag out the markers for some drawing!

Here is what most of the fishes look like right now. They're made from recycled chipboard, tape, a bit of glue and a length of copper wire. All are about 4 inches long.

Right now my muse wants to draw, so here are a couple of drawings to offer for trade:

Evelyn, I don't see pictures or links. The problem can be my slow internet connection.

Thank you, Sanna!

Evelyn, I don't see any pictures either....

Hi Tinka!

I have another ATC to offer for trade. I think it might be time for some sleep. I really thought that orange marker I picked up to color this pig was pink! So, I'm off for some shut-eye if the old body will cooperate. If not, then I'll be back with other weird creatures!

Mornin' Everyone!

I was able to get one card done last night and one this morning, though I don't have the time to get them uploaded as I should be getting ready for work...

I'm trying to pack together a Mini Tool kit to take with me as I have downtime (no breaks though) at work (I've been told to bring something to do for those times.) so I might get one or two more in...maybe. We shall see. XD

Happy Arting Everyone on this Good Friday!

04-06-2012, 07:01 AM
Now they are there!

04-06-2012, 07:03 AM

Hello A-thon'ers! :wubclub:

Good morning everyone. I've been up for hours. One of those night that I just couldn't sleep. To much on my mind. LIFE sometimes gets in the way of sleep.

So, I worked On some winged cards. I'll post later.

Great art from you all.

All is quiet for now. Either cooking, working, or doing something fun like creating cards.

I'm off to fold laundry.

I'm busy making new cards :).

I'm going to have to start getting up earlier this weekend. Takes so long to go through the thread, drool over amazing art, frantically send off PMs to see if they are still available for trade. It wears a girl out!! Then to hope to get some of my own cards done...... So right now I only have a few. Here are the first 4. Since it is an ATART I started out trying some new things. The first two are hand-painted and stamped backgrounds with images printed on transparencies. The second two are APCs where I experimented with embossing ink and a butterfly stamp on the beeswaxed card. It works perfectly btw.....

Solitary Flight
Two in the Garden
Butterfly 1
Yellow Flight

04-06-2012, 10:47 AM
And two more....

King of Flowers
Shadow Bird (because I used the second layer of the napking to leave a slight image over the 6. not sure if you can see it in the photo)

04-06-2012, 10:49 AM
And 2 more Easter cards from me:

Basket of Eggs

04-06-2012, 02:03 PM
Hi Kristin. I was wondering where are you :). Good to see you here.

04-06-2012, 02:25 PM
LOL - I was "chained" to the kitchen yesterday cooking 9 lbs of ribs and 5 pounds of scalloped potatoes. A friend came over for supper and declared everything a success and now I have several meals in the freezer and leftovers in the fridge for the weekend.

Today I can craft. :)

Last marathon several of us tried crackle paint and JanisElain just sent me this link demonstrating how it works:


Sharlene - it should have worked even after the water was added - it's a mystery why it didn't. It helped me to know because I was tempted to thin mine down also but after you posted your experience I didn't.

04-06-2012, 02:57 PM
so much great art so far. I also had some time and managed to make some atcs and my very first chunky. I am grateful for any advise (more embelishment? :unsure:). Hope I can do some more today and the rest of the a-thon :)

birdie ist not for trade, the rest is looking for a new home

My original transparencies. Heat embossed and embellished.

Please note that the embossing causes slight puckering of the plastic and the adehsive is only behind the ebmellishments so the edges do lift up.

I was actually surprised how much I was able to accomplish...I also drew an ATC sized picture of a story I'm collaboratively writing.

The muse just took off, and I had to hang on for dear life...but what a ride! XD

04-06-2012, 08:34 PM
Ahhh don't you LOVE when that happens???:)

...now if I could get my writing muse out of hiding....

04-06-2012, 09:16 PM

...now if I could get my writing muse out of hiding....

My art and writing muses tend to alternate, never being on at the same time.

It's been fun to see all the art. My weekend is still sort of tentatively planned, but I hope to get more time. I also managed to forget a dentist appointment Monday morning, but it shouldn't be bad, and then I can play in the afternoon.

And it's been nice to see spring, at least online. It went and snowed again today, though most of it's melted and it's supposed to warm up, but it was quite a surprise this morning when I glanced out and it looked like a snow globe.

04-06-2012, 09:34 PM
My art and writing muses tend to alternate, never being on at the same time. ...

I have the same trouble. They probably don't play nice together or something. I had it happen once where I was painting, and the story behind it came to life, coming together at the same time (no joke...I'd put one color on, write a few sentences, back and forth for 6 hours until both were complete). But other than that the visual and literary muses seem to mysteriously be elsewhere while the other is taking charge....

Silly muses anyway. XD

Caddy-shack *cough* I mean Cadillac. XD It's kind of funny, when people ask me that in person, having the handy-dandy-hand map is cool, though my wedding/engagement bands kind of land right on the spot of where I'm at. Kind of neat that way. XD

04-06-2012, 10:03 PM
Lots of great art posted since I was last here!

The paper mache fishes will have to be left for another day. It's rainy and cold here. The humidity is way too high for a fast drying time with the fishes. Perhaps tomorrow the sun will come out and it won't be so dreary and wet.

I have two more ATCs to offer. If anyone is interested please shoot me off a PM! Thanks!

04-07-2012, 04:00 AM
Good morning. I almost forgot to come here and then it took ages to read everything. Off to send some PMs :).

04-07-2012, 04:01 AM
You all have been so busy making art when I was sleeping. I hope I manages to give rep points to most of you...

04-07-2012, 04:04 AM
We have lovely sun shine now and it's time to take pics of my last cards I made in the evening. I hope to upload them soon.

We have only +3C here (+37F) but at least it's not too windy day. Yesterday I thought our cabin will fly away... I really hope that the snow will melt soon. There is still 10-20 inches.

04-07-2012, 04:28 AM
Some APCs I made tonight

Please check my gallery to see if the card is still available.
Tinka has first choice but do not hesitate to ask as the one you like may not be what she picks :)

04-07-2012, 04:59 AM
You all are busy little artists tonight! I've been up all night again. Got my days and nights turned around.
My drawing muse left the building for awhile there! The collage muse was here instead. It's a good thing, I suppose, because she really needs some practice. Took me all night to make these three postcards...then the drawing muse showed up again so I could offer up an ATC to trade as well.

The three postcards are made from the stuff I get in the mail from my traders. Envelopes, greeting cards, goodies.

I'll trade postcards for whatever you might have to trade for one.

hedgehog owl postcard
pink stripe postcard
apple pie postcard
blue and orange jug ATC

04-07-2012, 05:09 AM
Good morning folks! It has taken me an age to work through all the posts... there's some fab stuff out there! Cathy1 I am loving the Elton John card!!!
Well so far today all I have managed to do is photograph yesterday's creations. Hopefully (over several posts) I can get them up here for you. All are currently available!

Good morning.
I just got caught up. Time for coffee. I can't do much until I have my morning coffee.
I will need to clean my work area, I can't anything.

Oh, my hubby brought me coffee. I love that first sip.

What wonderful art created while I slept. I hope to do a lot of trading today.

Thanks to everybody for the nice comments about my beeswax cards. It is a little messy, and challenging. When I draw, I usually have some idea how the card will turn out. Beeswax creates its own surprises! I have a number more to upload so watch for them.

04-07-2012, 11:45 AM

Is the Bailey's saying the "handsome" part or that they're traded? lol:)

04-07-2012, 12:17 PM

hahahaha! The Bailey's is saying "go take some aspirin!" ... the Handsome Husband is saying, "those are cool, do you have to trade them?" Therefore, taking some aspirin and putting the ATC on the piano for the day ... he took the bookmark to work.

Paper flowers and die-cut sheep on a recycled notecard background:

Handsome Husband just sent me a text "if you want to trade that card, it's okay ... you can always make another" LOL ... I love that man!!!

04-07-2012, 01:15 PM
Isn't Annika Pippi Longstocking's friend?! Was it Tommy and Annika? .... :)

How do you k now about that story? I'm amazed that you know about that Swedish story. It was my favourite TV program when I was a child. If we don't count Moomins...

04-07-2012, 01:22 PM
I read the books when I was in grade school. I always wanted to be independent like Pippi!! give me some pirate treasure and I'm good to go!!

04-07-2012, 01:23 PM
Didn´t think about Pippi when I named her Annika **LOL** It´s also the name of a friend´s daughter - and she reminded me of her.

04-07-2012, 01:28 PM
I read the books when I was in grade school. I always wanted to be independent like Pippi!! give me some pirate treasure and I'm good to go!!

Her father is a sea captain but can you tell what is her mother? The story is a bit sad but I love the way she is talking about her mother.

I don't remember the story of the mother at all ... hmmm ... I'm thinking kidnapped by pirates LOL - I do remember Villa Villakula (spelling?) ... I wanted to live there!
AND When I was in 2nd grade we actually named our German Shepard dog "Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Macromento Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking Somerton the Third" (Pip for short) That's what you get when you let your kids name a pet!!

04-07-2012, 01:42 PM
Morning...Afternoon...Evening.... all you gals all over this tiny world..

now my question is... JAW, you and handsome husband did "art" together ALL last evening and you got ONE atc and ONE bookmark ???? yep, sounds like Olympia, Washington might be a little short on their suppy of Baileys today...:cute:

oh Pippi, really have to dig into my slow memory, but I almost remember this story, so now I think I will have to take a new look...
more lovely art posted while I slept..

and for our new member... Ewerhoh.... yes, please just start posting more comments here in our Easter thread and you will see your POST number start to add up... I not sure how many you will need... I think 13 or 15.... (Sanna or anyone know the actual number required ? )

04-07-2012, 01:47 PM

In one story she told that her morher is an angel :). She never said that her mother would be died.

I would love to see you asking you dog to come to you when you are shouting it's full name :twitcy::twitcy::twitcy:.

The name in Finnish is Peppi Lotta Sikuriina Rullakartiina Kissanminttu Efraimintytär Pitkätossu. Don't even try to pronunce it...

I think it is 15. But it's easy to see when Ewerhoh starts posting. And she is from Sweden (hello neigbour :)), from the country of Pippi!

04-07-2012, 01:54 PM
Oh my, I´ve started something. :) Now I have the song from the TV show in my mind....

Pippi´s German name is Pippilotta Viktualia Rollgardina Pfefferminz Efraimstochter Langstrumpf..... Trallallalala...
