All-Types-Art-a-thon on Memorial Day's Weekend

dsign49 is hosting and sniisk is co-hosting (if needed)

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Friday morning, May 25, 2012
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Monday evening, May 28, 2012.

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
6) HAVE FUN

OPTIONAL CHALLENGES/THEMES

Friday: Space; stars, planets, aliens, comets, shooting stars, space ships...
Saturday: Ladies accessories; shoes, hats, gloves, fans, etc
Sunday: APC
Monday: Pretain to Memorial Day; flowers, flags
(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, May 25th (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.

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD:
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 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) 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:

NEW TO A-THONS?
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.

I like the suggestion we are getting. Sea creatures does sound like a good one. We haven't had that in a while...Summer ideas are also good ones too. How about Flowers with butterflies, bugs, dragonflies or birds. everyone always likes birds or flying creatures.

I'll try to play! I have family obligations what with my birthday falling on the weekend. AND the b/f being here all three days. Making art should be doable, but taking time to scan and post is the part I have squeeze in.

I like the suggested themes - will see what I can do with those!

I'm hoping to play some this weekend. I need me a good a-thon!

Maybe I could ATART it up on the longhaul plane flight? But I should try and sleep, since it'll help me get into the right timezone.

05-24-2012, 01:37 PM
It has to be already Friday somewhere because it's 8.30pm here :).

I won't be making anything until in the morning. And because my back is OK now, I'll do some garden work tomorrow :).

05-24-2012, 01:45 PM
Thank you for the invite to this ATART! I have company coming for the weekend so I don't know if I'll get to play or not. Going to have a yard sale also so I'm going to be a bit busy. Wish I could get out of the yard sale thing even though others will be doing most of the work. I'd much rather be making art than selling junk!
I'll try to drop in from time to time to admire the eye candy and if I can manage it, I'll do some art also!

I'm always lurking...still can't get into the creating mode, but I'll be here to see all the great work.

Just Ducky
05-24-2012, 02:36 PM
Sanna, now don't go overdueing your "feeling better" back...
and KES... tummy flu, that sucks... hope it's getting settled for you...

oh for you guys that asked... vintage horse pull... guess I should have said, just an ol' fashion horse pull... our tiny village has had this going on for over 40 years I think... farmer/horse guys.... a 2 horse team of really large horses pull a very heavy weight sled..
will try to have show and tell pictures Saturday night... sure are beautiful horses...

now I guess I get my ol' thinkin' cap on and see if I can come up with ideas for atcs...

ITS FRIDAY!!! When can I start? LOL

With a sick husband and a flood at work, a pipe burst it seems and when it rains heavily we get flooded...spent yesterday working a suction machine....I should have plenty of time to fit art in between running around after my husband who is dying.. Oh come on you know how men are...LOL hmm its really got him bad though...

dsign49
05-24-2012, 08:00 PM
Kristin you take care....Please to lurk if your not up to creating art.
Mousit if it is Friday you can start.... Be looking for your art.
My husband has the flu too... Go home from town and he was on the couch covered up.

I thought I was up to parbut found out running aroundtown can play a person out.

Ibus
05-24-2012, 08:03 PM
I can officially start, but I'm off to bed now, will start in the morning. I have backgrounds made :)

Cathy1
05-24-2012, 09:08 PM
It's Friday lunchtime here and I could have started BUT I am at work just waiting to admire any eye candy that appears. And I have a very busy weekend so I may just have to be a lurker and admirer for the weekend . We will see how the time pans out.

Have much fun everyone.

Hello All!

Thanks for the invite!

I've spent most of the day cleaning my apartment with my huzbee...and we actually found FLOOR! LoL! I'm Hosting a Writer's Summit here this weekend and 4 of my college buddies will be up for the weekend. So...Not sure how much I'm going to be able to play. If anything, I'll be ATARTing in my Writing more so than visual. (I also have a to-do list a mile long...but I'm probably the earliest riser. So I might get something done before they wake, arrive and after they leave.) We're really hoping to get a few "Strawberry Jams" in, and I'm just so excited!

Really love Friday's theme! I have a sci-fi story that I'm working on, and it just kicked that into gear. ;)

So...I'll probably be lurking at the very least. Happy Creating!

05-25-2012, 06:48 AM
Just woke up and still have my creative corner to find. (a lot of stuff got stacked in there...).

Also, I have to pick up where my huzbee left off...he didn't do the dishes, take out the trash or clean the kitchen floor (like he said he would). Darn. Can't fault him too badly since he worked hard yesterday.

I also have to run errands (i.e. pay bills, and do the shopping) before everyone arrives. Hopefully I can get it all done and with a little luck get a card or two in. :)

Keep up the awesome work!

Hidden Treasure, I am new to Moo cards, but think they are so fun! Go to Forums, then Misc trading forums and read RogueGals instructions for the Red White and Moo swap...That is all I know about them, but I have lots of ideas swimming about in my head about what I plan to do with mine! exp: put some wire and beads on the top and hang from a large picture frame that is full of ATC cards and today I got the bright idea of hanging them from a lamp shade. I hope you will jump in and make some...You know that I am a fan of your work and know that your Moos would be fantastic!!

Hubby and I are going to be alone this weekend!!! WOOHOO!!!! So I had a bit of time to work on a couple other cards. The theme brought several to mind but only have time for these two today.

A Star To Steer Her By (inspired by the poem Sea Fever by John Masefield)
Another Starry Night (my take on it anyway. I don't think Van Gogh has much to worry about!)

Hi everyone. Been out most of the day. My brother came over and helped me put in the rest of the garden. Whew. What a workout. Not much time today for art.
These are some Abstract Moos from yesterday. Are we supposed to attach a tassel or something to Moos? or just leave them as they are. I noticed Nancy's Moos don't but one I saw in the Ellie-Athon did.

Jewels, those are gorgeous!
Most people just leave the moos as they are...no tassels. Depends on what people want to do with them, I guess.
I'm just a bookmark kind of person so I thought 'moo bookmarks'! I also made a couple into refrigerator magnets, too.

Thank you Dsign49 - still fighting the end of this thing. Sort of uncomfortable and restless tonight - that's why I'm up so late even though I'm bleary eyed. Now that I have visions of great art in my head to distract me I'm going to try to relax and sleep.

I'm sorry, but yesterday it was simply too hot craft! And today probably wont be very crafty either cause I just received 41557.09$ from my pension company. Now I have to wait til tuesday to go to my financial social worker to get it confirmed that the money will not be deducted from my benefits. But I did ask before applying for the insurance and was told they most likely wouldnt be...!

I screamed out loud for 30 seconds and then called all the family - it was 8.30am here on saturday so needless to say I didnt get through to my siblings;) Instead I left a msg on their answering machines: Hi it's Tania. There is a quarter of a million (amount in danish) on my account. Have a nice day.

and of course monday is a holiday!!!!! I havent even gotten a letter yet from the pension company - they just appeared on my netbank!!!

I just begun SMASH'ing two days ago. A crafts journal where I amongst other things begun a top ten of most wanted craft supplies. Number one: the silhouette paper cutter...

here are two quite different chunkies -probably all I will get to make this weekend as I have a million and one things to do and my Mum is in hospital after a heart attack so not a lot of time to craft.

I would like to swap chunky for chunky if possible. The scan colour is not that good - especially Country Kids which is definately darker in colour.

Inspire is an image I have coloured with pastels and chalk, Country kids is a collage.
Both are available.

I also wanted to know the dimensions, so I checked back to page 6 to find the post, which directed me to Rogue Girl's moo swap. I couldn't find the Red White and Moo swap - checked several Misc. Trading forums but all the wrong ones, lol.

So I gave up and did a google search and found this site (http://gabriellemadsen.blogspot.ca/2008/01/art-in-2008.html)which talks about them.

The dimensions are 1.1" x 2.8" or 2.8cm x 7 cm.

Here's a Flickr group dedicated to moos. (http://www.flickr.com/groups/1000172@N21/)

On moos, I figure the way to package them is like an atc sleeve folded and taped maybe? I'm too paranoid to mail them without a plastic sleeve (maybe in part because it's rainy today.) Also, is anyone doing sideways moos? Is such a thing allowed? All the ones I've seen are vertical. Also, am I the only one who is way too a-moosed by saying moooooo while in the studio? (My cat thinks I've lost what's left of my mind.)

Well, Trina just got me into them the other day. She talked me into making some to trade with her and I made them the size she was using. (Not sure mine are the 'legal' dimensions LOL)

Not sure what I will do with them, but I'm thinking they will make fun book marks. I also have a bulletin board in my craft room and one in my closet. I like to post fun things on both of them, so I put some of them there. :)

The printed moo is 1.1" x 2.75" but really, what's .1" in the big scheme of things plus 1" is easier to cut so that's what I did for the moo swap.

Great stuff here!

I agree! Now that Trina got me started on these things I'm regretting dropping out of your swap. They are fast and fun to make!

Just seems like a waste of an envelope, carbon footprint and all that plus over a dollar postage for one little moo.

Nanner, I will take anything your crazy self creates! I think I'll do some skinny birds, cigars, carrots and other tall erect things.

I don't know if these have ever been traded before.... I got them at an office supply store, they are paper with metal frame and a large split ring.... for keys, etc. Super cheap... 1 1/2 inches in diameter but if you paint the paper, you can use rinchies.
The first one is polymer clay, green on one side, antique gold on the other. The second one is collage on one side and stickers on the other. I removed the split ring temporarily so they would scan.

Willing to trade for anything but note that these are quick and easy.... not as much work or effort as an atc or moo....

Polymer Clay Tag Rinchie is TRADED

There is a company called Moo (not sure why) but one of their products are "mini cards", which are half the size of regular business cards.

One of the cool things about this company is that you can have as many different designs printed as you want in your card order!

Check out their mini cards (what everyone here is calling Moo cards) here!

Several years ago printed Moo cards were all the rage for trading at art gatherings and retreats, so 5 or 6 years ago I had a couple hundred printed up of my artwork, both vertical and horizontal. I even did some of my kitty Cleo who had just died and was on my mind a lot. At the time I traded a lot of charms, so it was fun to tuck one of my Moos into the package with the charm. Some artists also punch a hole in the end and attach them to artwork for sale as a little pricetag.

I stopped doing anything with mine for years until grrrdjules posted her Found Poetry Moo swap, and I quickly became obsessed with making them, and obviously a lot of other people did too. I like the size too. I've been using the size that grrrdjules
posted in her swap: 1 X 2.75 inches (easier to cut).

My muse wasn't letting me create art today, but she did allow me to make Moo backgrounds and cut out images, so I'm hoping to Moo it up on Sunday. Mooooooo!

You all have been making some fantastic art! I hope to have something to offer up tomorrow so I can join in the fun!

Sqeak, Squeak, ya'll. (That's my best Texan mouse imitation...) I made some moo's... not sure about the process, feels a little like wrapping a stick of gum? I used mrubyjean's incredible moo she sent during the ellie athon as a "guide", then discovered that my first two are a little big???? So I recut my pattern and made one more. the first 2 are about 1/16 too wide and too long.

I even had a go at a couple myself today and spent the afternoon turning some into fridge magnets with my 9 year old niece who was up visiting to take home with her and to give to her grandmother.

Here a 3 Moo's and an ATC from today. All are available for trade.
