APC-a-thon on July 6-8

sniisk and minnkel (and Wil :)) are hosting

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Friday morning, July 6, 2012
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Sunday evening, July 8, 2012.

NOTE: If you are not using standard ATC size playing cards, mark them clearly. Not everyone is willing to trade wrong size cards.

This weekend we will :
1) Create altered playing cards, any theme, collaging, painting, drawing, zentangles, digital altering, photographs, 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

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, July 6 (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.

Wil and I will be co-co-hosts!!! No doubt one of us will be on the thread at any given moment in the US time zones!! One thing to watch out for however, is that we don't always remember to change the "sender" when we switch back and forth a lot during an athon. so it will always be a mystery as to who is actually posting!!

CynthiaSillitoe
07-04-2012, 05:30 PM
Tomorrow, I'm going to try and get some swaps mailed and out of here, and then I'm so ready for this weekend.

KESagers

We could use some of that.

sniisk
07-06-2012, 03:49 AM
It's been very hot here too. And I've been doing garden work every day all day long. We have lot to do here before this garden is well made. It was in a bad condition when we bought it a year ago.

sniisk
07-06-2012, 03:50 AM
I've made my first APCs. Now hoping that my camera is working somehow. I cannot take good pictures anymore but I hope they will be good enough.

Evalila
07-06-2012, 03:54 AM

sniisk

If you want, feel free to post a list of your missing APCs (if you are collecting specific themes and would like to complete your deck) or the list itself. It helps us to know what people may want :).

My list is behind the link in my signature.

Tinka
07-06-2012, 06:49 AM
Hi Sanna, could you tell me please how to make a link to my APC list like you did? I have no idea! Thank you. ( Allready making new APC's)

Evalila

- Go to your UserCP

- add text like "My APC list"
- highlight text
- click on "Insert link"
- insert URL in the window that opens
- click OK
- Save Signature

Hi maggiebloom,

it looks like you copied the name of your picture, which is at the top of the window that opens.

You need to copy the URL, which is further down and starts with http://...

Ugh. I'm sick and didn't get enough sleep. I don't know if I'll get any made, but it will be fun to watch the art and then maybe I'll get serious tomorrow.

Wil Opio Oguta
07-06-2012, 09:58 AM
Morning all. It is great to see the first cards posted. Keep in mind that if you post them in the gallery, there is a special gallery for athons. Kelly and I first have to do some shopping before we can go into the studio to play.

minnkel
07-06-2012, 10:04 AM
YEAH MAGGIE!!! Welcome welcome. We'll help you get the photo thing sorted out no problem. I'm just so glad you stopped by to play!!! Ahhhh temtation is a wonderful thing!!

As Wil said....we "have" to do a bit of shopping (would have done it sooner but my van had issues - which are now fixed!) Major purchase need -- GLUE STICKS!!!!! Can't very well get very far in an athon without a good supply of those!!! So....you guys create your little hearts out and we will take what i imagine will be HOURS to catch up when we return.

So glad to see all of you here but sad to hear about some who are sick. Not good :nah:. Hope everything gets better and you can come play later! Keep us posted, OK? We worry about you guys.

OK....Gotta get outta here so we can get back quickly!! We'll check back in the minute we hit the studio! You guys behave while we are gone ya hear???? OK....probably not....LOL!!

Later gators!

Beautiful cards, Tinka!

I just tried the link in your signature, looks like it doesnt work. Trying to figure out what went wrong...:skeptical:

sniisk
07-06-2012, 01:13 PM
Tinka, you have an extra http: in your link.

It should look like this:

Great cards everyone!

sniisk
07-06-2012, 01:30 PM
I have, as always, a pile of half made cards on my table. I will finish some of them today and try to upload some pics too.

KESagers
07-06-2012, 01:32 PM
Oh nice cards everyone! A great start already.

I'm still playing around with adhesives to see what works best. The Bycycle cards are coated and I'm finding that most of my adhesives don't work. The super sticky red tape seems to work with anything and I have good luck with that. Gel medium seems to work on a collage APC but then once again nothing else sticks to the top of the gel medium except for the red tape. And of course beeswax is an option - just not when it's a 100 degrees outside. What is everyone else using?

Great cards Evalila!!!!! Want to make some using women on stamps????????????? That's my new deck! I'll reciprocate with whatever you'd like.

I have lots of APCs in my gallery that are wanting to get traded....

Evalila
07-06-2012, 01:43 PM
maggie, the last bracket after the "IMG" is missing.

Evalila
07-06-2012, 01:44 PM
Thank you:) Ill have to look for my women stamps first:D

Evalila
07-06-2012, 01:47 PM
Kristin, I usually use a light coat of (clear) gesso first, then I use gel medium and/or decoupage glue when Im working with napkins or tissue paper.

KESagers
07-06-2012, 01:48 PM
Clear Gesso is some thing I haven't tried yet but I think I have some - somewhere. I'll have to look for it.

Evalila
07-06-2012, 01:49 PM
Looks like Im spamming this thread :laugh:

Forgot two of my cards:

I have been busy today... but not with APCs...

I first went swimming with my mother, then did the shopping, I baked some more tiles for one of my polymer clay tiles panels, I glued the tiles to the panel. I just need to finish it off and then it is ready. Oh yeah and then I carved a stamp for the Coffee swap I am hosting, printed some ATCs with the stamp. Made some prints of the zebra stamp I carved a few week ago, as I had the ink out and all. Then I prepared some envelopes with rubber stamps I sold online and I now need to think where I left my cards. But I will post some APCs today!!

minnkel
07-06-2012, 02:07 PM
WE'RE BAAACK!!!!! And sheesh it is too danged hot to be out again this week....possibly EVER!! Getting into creative mode and then hope to post some stuff. But will check in from time to time to see how all of you guys are doing!!

Hopefully all of you are staying COOOOOOOL!!

KESagers

Rock on Evalila! I know Minnkel - I think the entire United States is melting!

maggiebloom
07-06-2012, 02:26 PM
PICS- Beeswax/napkin collages: YEAH!!!! Thanx Kelly. Whew! I was really feeling pretty dumb. One more question: Is there a separate gallery I should be posting pics to?

6 of hearts is traded.

minnkel
07-06-2012, 02:34 PM
Yep, when you open up your gallery and you click on upload, under Upload File is Category with a drop-down box under that. One of the options (4th from the bottom) is Athon Gallery. Click on Athon Gallery. The rest is just like any gallery upload.

maggiebloom
07-06-2012, 02:35 PM
More cards!

7 of clubs and 6 of hearts are traded

minnkel
07-06-2012, 02:50 PM

Hey Cynthia sweetie!!! Are you feeling any better this afternoon???? Hope you are up and doing great soon!

Hey Cynthia sweetie!!! Are you feeling any better this afternoon???? Hope you are up and doing great soon!

Aw, thanks. :) I am a bit better. Like Sanna, I have partially made cards so far. Nothing else planned this weekend, though, so if I can get some sleep tonight, I hope to get lots done the rest of the athon.

Kristin, I use double stick tape from Vivalasvegastamps.com and it works great!

Kristin, I use double stick tape from Vivalasvegastamps.com and it works great!

Thanks! I just checked it out and it looks like you are using the Miracle tape. I think I might have to give it a try.


BTW I am collecting ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING so if anyone sees something you like please ask for a trade. :)

Whoa! Maggie once you get going you don't slow down do you!! Beautiful cards girl!!

Kristin - I bet Pixiecorpse will be jumping all over those Pooh cards!! way cute!

Time for bed for me I'm afraid. Wil is already in her room for the night. My hubby works until 11 tonight but I'm afraid this might be one night I don't wait up for him. I'm beat. I think the heat has a lot to do with it. We got a lot accomplished out shopping this morning but boy was I ready to get home to the A/C!!

You guys keep rolling along...I'll check in with ya in the A.M.!!

Just popped in to say 'Hi' to all my lovely 'athoner' friends. I love all the APCs here- but won't be playing this time. I have three sets of APCs, with some missing, but no time to do more. School work is just overwhelming these last few weeks of the term. Can't wait till July 20th and 5 weeks of Art Art Art. In the meantime, love what you're all doing an a BIG HI from wet wet London!!

Yes - I still have those backgrounds - I kept waiting for inspiration to strike and it did this weekend. :) They will be gone after this marathon.

Cynthia - I did not seal most of mine. They are just the alcohol inks - nothing else. As I mentioned before I am having trouble finding any adhesive other than the red tape to stick to the coating that comes on the cards but people have given some good tips on that.

Are there rules? I take it you have to show one corner for number and suit - does it have to be upper left?

I think it is not a rule. I usually do this because it has been the easiest way.

I hope it is not a rule...as many of my cards show the number only in the bottom right.
No one seems to complain.:twitcy:

I haven't even noticed where the number and suit is as long as it can be clearly be seen somewhere.

Good Morning, All!

Wow! The cards posted are all fantastic. I have been bitten by the athon bug!
I have updated my APC thread posting for the postage stamp women I am collecting, so if anyone has promised me a card I won't have duplicates - altho the women on the cards are different and amazing! If you are making a card(s) please let me know which one and I'll update the list!

My problem is which do I do - create or administrate???? lol I need a secretary!

pixiecorpse
07-08-2012, 08:20 AM
Create! I think we could all do with a secretary :D

Evalila
07-08-2012, 08:30 AM
Yes, create! I already gave up keeping this thread up-to-date, so if you want to see which cards still are available, you should have a look at my gallery **LOL**

Im waiting for several cards to dry. Especially pixies card. :twitcy: The blood takes ages to dry ....

Hi ladies
You are doing a great job this weekend, I am very jealous, I am digging into IT books to finish my projects for my course, I only had time to do some Doors for goatgirl's swap.
Hope I can do next A-thon.
Contact me if there are any birdies left when you finish.
Congratulations to everybody, cards are great!!

Hey Mags! I owe you 4 cards but can't find your APC list. Most of us have it in our signature which makes it easier to find. I don't remember how to put the link in there but I know someone here will walk you through it.

In the meantime, let me know how to find your APC list and I'll get your cards done and hopefully won't duplicate anyone.

Hehe I was thinking of starting other decks but I want odd things that no one wants to make
I'd love a deck of crows/ravens creepy stuff, early 80s music, 80s film poster types and egypt so if anyone makes any like that I've not started the deck yet obviously

I'll be starting a vacation tomorrow with my husband. We are travelling to North and I need to mail my cards before that. All my envelopes will be in the mail after 14 hours. If I owe you something, please choose cards before that. If you owe me something, no hurry. I can choose cards also when I'm not at home. I have plenty of cards in my gallery now.

More and more wonderful cards! I've been hard at work and here is what I've been doing:

The background of these APCs is a deck with images from the Oregon coast. The cards were collaged with images of Flapper girls modeling bathing suits. I tried to preserve as much of the photo of the coastline as possible since the pictures are so pretty. When asking for a trade please desingnate "Oregon Flapper."

Here are some more cards. The butterfly cards made it to the scanner, but before I could upload them here, Kelly had claimed them. But if you want one of them - or another butterfly card, I can always make you one.
