Halloween and Autumn Themed Art-a-thon (ATART)
Starts at 12AM on Oct 25, 2012 goes till Midnight Nov 1st


Lets get the party going! Everyone is invited. This is an a-thon for all our favorite art. Atcs, inchies, twinchies, altoid tins, tags, moos, chunkies even journal pages (but for these you may want to ask for a size from a person you want to trade with) whatever you want.
Besides Halloween Treats or Spooks, we also have beautiful Fall colors and Thanksgiving to include in our art.

We have several hosts and each are giving two challenge ideas. These challenges are for anytime during the run of the a-thon. It will be fun to see how many of each are made.

Co-hosts and their challenges are... Thank you all. hugs
Linda4atc 1) hand drawn scarecrow atcs 2) Wacky Witches Brew Chunkies (ie: bat wings, eye of newt)
Donnacr (pending)
KESagers 1) black cats and pumpkins 2) chunkies with real Halloween treat recipes
sharlene54 1) Steampunky Halloween Chunkies. 2) tags
mariloupatch Halloween/Autumn distressed backgrounds and only home made stickers
dsign49 1) something to be thankful for like food, family etc 2) Postage stamp on a atc
Just Ducky All Art... inch...twinch...Moo... ATCs player choice in pretty AUTUMN colors, leafs, trees, all that pretty stuff






After you trade your creations they should be moved from the A thon gallery to Traded ATC's or Traded Mail Art (So only available Athon creations are in the athon gallery.)

Here's the "fine print"

What IS an ART-A-THON?
It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art period, done over the same day and time in each time zone.
It’s kind of like we were all together for 5 days to play with our art supplies and this thread is our play room.

HOW IT WORKS: start creating art at the designated time, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the athon. Trading and chatting ensues.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: - When you find a piece of art or creation 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 which 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 below
Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

Mozella Firefox, Google Chrome and Mac Safari (most versions)
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 are small, medium or large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want.

[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.

Sounds like a party to me :jiggy: But I am new at this ATC business and I don't really get what a "moo" is; I figured out the other things -- inchies, chunkies -- just can't get my brain to decipher the MOO code :embarrassed: Help! Cecil! Help!

10-24-2012, 10:34 AM
A Moo's size is 1" on 2.75", and there is also a Tea card, and that has the size of 1.1" on 2.5". I hope I have this correct :>)))
Any questions, shoot...there will be always someone to answer, but most of all have fun, lots of fun.

Linda4atc
10-24-2012, 12:03 PM
Debs anything goes in an ATART. Any media and size art. Some people will use a lot of stamping or stickers as well. The main thing about stickers and collage is to carefully cut away the background and you get a much nicer pieces of art.

marilou
10-24-2012, 12:04 PM
no no no Rita, you are not allowed to go offline, we will have to keep the fort tomorrow morning :>))))

Yea! miloccpep! You got the art party going! I STILL need to complete my steampunk zoo swap cards before I can start on things for this. LOL

I loved the way you ladies posted our chunky collections in the last swap so I am trying to do that in Post #3 for everyone interested. If you want your collections listed I will try to get them added.

Don't forget we have a great list of Challenges to entertain our muses! Challenges are going to run the full a-thon instead of being assign a particular day. If you do something with the challenge in mind, point out that it is a challenge piece just for fun.

I can't leave for even a little while. I missed the beginning-and-what a great start. Welcome to all. I going try some the challenges and the sizes I've never done before.

7 1/2 hours to go. I think it will be a Halloween ATC. I have a women's club dinner to go to in a little while, but when I get back, I'm going to work on my first ATC.

See you on the 25th ~ 12 midnight.

LOL So many people ready to get started. Do you all know the song "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere"? I really don't care if everyone everywhere starts at the same time and go till midnight for the last person (West Coast USA?) LOL

I talked to the Vet and now I have to add another trip into town during the a-thon. I have to take Calicat to the Vet Friday for an antibiotic shot. Couldn't talk them into letting come in today.

So technically i cheated... i have 2 cards & a chunky ready to post already... but in my defense i thought it was the 25th already, lol... also, i work kinda slow. I know alot of yall are gonna be busy stamping, sticking & gluing, but my cards are all 95% HD/HP. It takes me 2+ hrs to complete a card. I'm not very fond of the "Don't start working til midnight" rule... severely limits how much i can participate. :(

Good morning, to all those who are awake, and sleep tight to the others.
I am awake for 1 hour and 1/2, have no coffee yet, as hubby is still asleep and better
not make any noise. Yesterday I made 2 cat stamps, and before I have a handmade witch on a broom and a bat. Takes a lot of time and patience, but great fun. I stamped my stamps on to sturdy paper and will emboss them or use glossy accent to make stickers. My background is ready, I used distress ink from Ranger, fired brick, mustard seed and forest moss, the most beautiful autumn colours.My glossy accent on a ghost dried, so I can scan the chunky's and post them in a while.

Hubby is up and preparing breakfast, so I scanned my first 4 chunky's, dangles or more dangles will be added later, otherwise the scan gets blurry.

111504 Atart 1: there is a shiny copper text, but does not show on the scan, it says: Brush up your brooms, polish your bats, clean your fangs and sparkle your cat

111505 atart 2 handmade ghost sticker

111506 atart 3

111507 atart 4 handmade stamp of cat and witch

Thank you, oddbreed and sharlene54. Morning mrubyjean and lilbad.

monarch, miloccpep, KittyNL, oddbreed, nancy, and Ibus awesome art being shown.

jaw so nice to see you, an a-thon is a perfect welcome back party. Glad you are here utahprairiegirl and debs913. Just pm people when you want to trade. Nobody is required to trade with anyone, but most people are happy to trade with the first person to ask, unless they have requested trades (trade pending) and the other person may need to pick their card first.

Theresagram lets see some stamping lady!:wubclub:

Snow is never good. Snow is the enemy. Just ask my cat who is sulking in the computer chair, preventing me from uploading scans, but better than her griping. (She grew up in Phoenix.)

I do have some art going. House to myself this weekend. The drapes are already pulled. Food for the weekend is on its way, and I'm creating away.....

Good night mariloupatch.

Snow, I could never take snow in Oct., although last fall we had an early snow storm and it was terrible with the leaves still on the trees. Lots of down branches and no power for many families. Now the news is going crazy with this hurricane maybe coming to the east coast of the US.

I finally got 2 finished.

Hello old friends!

First off, I think I have one Halloween chunkie left over that is up for grabs if any one wants it in the A-Thon Gallery

Second, and I know ya'll will think I am crazy for sure, but when I read the first pages of posts in ths thread it reminded me of Ruby in the movie, Cold Mountain (one of my top 10 favorite movies no doubt because of my proximity to the locals in the movie)


Ruby: Number one - shut this door, it's freezing. Number two - shut that door, it's freezing. I'm laying on my back, with my fingers poked in my ears trying to shut out who's got a bag of diamonds and who's carrying a tray. If you want to get three feet up a bull's ass, listen to what sweethearts whisper to each other. Now, if you're going to wimble wimble all night, I'm going to sleep in with him.


hahaha.....everyone posting they love this and that... lol... ok, I'm tired from traveling and working, time to channel all that into some art....(but I still think it's funny that quote came to mind with all the chatter!!!)

I wanted to do the chunky athon, didn't happen. :sad:
oH, so I love autumm, Halloween, spiced cider , apples, pumkins, catching a whif of someones woodstove burning, caramel apples, popcorn balls, funky decorations in peoples yards........and yes, I'll admit it, Halloween brings the promise of Holidays coming up...Thanksgiving, Christmas. I love the yellow of goldenrod, and the yellow butterflys that only come in fall (here in south)

keeping fingers crossed that I'll be able to play in this athon. If I don't play, you all know I'll be reading the thread and cheering you on....such a good group of traders (and its only just started!)

picture is a beautiful tree thats 17' from my front door, its the first thing I see every morning. Well, that and the green dumpster. :huh::yes::laugh:

So much great art has been posted for this marathon already! You guys rock!

Got my flu shot this week. The rest of my family had zero side effects. I usually have a little but this year it really knocked my feet out from under me. Still dragging but at least I can enjoy all this art that is being posted.

As Sharlene said we are now preparing for a possible Hurricane that might join up with the storm that is headed our way from the west. If that happens right over top of us we are told this will be a storm unlike any this state has ever seen. REALLY GREAT RIGHT NOW! So depending on how this forecast shapes up I may be in full disaster preparedness mode this weekend and if it does hit us I'll be without cable until power is restored. Sigh - I hope I get to at least make some art.

Art on everyone!

Oh, Kirstin I have been hearing reports of that storm all day and it sounds frightening..I lived on Galveston Island for 21 years before moving to FL..so they have been a way of life for me...I do not evacuate, just ride them out in hip boots and a hard hat. The difference is, living in a storm zone, emergency management has lots of experience and equiptment and can get things up and running for us quickly...but
Northerners do not have that advantage. Take good care of yourself and I will be sending prayers your way.

Then it should be possible to get them to receivers when it's Christmas time. How does that sound? I could put that in the a-thon calendar quite soon.

And I really wish I could play more now :(. Stupid work...

Lilbad, Monarch...and all of you who posted.....wonderful, remind me to give reps.
Yep, put a note, will do as soon as I am back, hubby calls.

So much great art has been posted for this marathon already! You guys rock!

Got my flu shot this week. The rest of my family had zero side effects. I usually have a little but this year it really knocked my feet out from under me. Still dragging but at least I can enjoy all this art that is being posted.

As Sharlene said we are now preparing for a possible Hurricane that might join up with the storm that is headed our way from the west. If that happens right over top of us we are told this will be a storm unlike any this state has ever seen. REALLY GREAT RIGHT NOW! So depending on how this forecast shapes up I may be in full disaster preparedness mode this weekend and if it does hit us I'll be without cable until power is restored. Sigh - I hope I get to at least make some art.

Art on everyone!

Oh, I hope it shifts and goes out to sea or fizzles out. Stay safe!

I had my first ever flu shot Wednesday. The hospital I work at just made it mandatory. So they gave me the shot and had to monitor me for awhile because I'm allergic to eggs. (Moderate to severe) I had no side effects at all!! :D Sorry you're having them. Feel better!

I am enjoying all the pretties posted thus far in the athon! I'm getting a late start at it all myself.
I have 7 little books to offer for trade. The only ART involved in them is actually sewing them together. I can't take credit for the images on the books. I'll trade a little book for an ATC and the larger one for a chunky or 2 ATCs.
Little books are made from recycled chipboard (cereal box), black construction paper and halloween stickers with googly eyes. They each have 20 pages of manila drawing paper. These are all ATC size, sewn in the pamphlet stitch with metallic purple embroidery thread. The boo book is just to show you all a decent picture of what the little books look like.
Large book is made from a paper napkin fused to cardstock. It has 40 pages of manila drawing paper and is 4.5x4.5 inches square. This one is sewn in the long stitch with orange crochet cotton thread.

If you're interested in a book, please ask for it by name. Shoot me off a PM and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks!

do not have time to read the thread at the moment- will only be able to play a little this w/e-working a Haunted House fri and sat nites.
I still have to run to store for makeup!
if I owe you from last w/e -I have not mailed anything out yet.

can our trades be anything Fall or Halloween, and the challenges are 'extra'???
will check in when I get home from scaring people-do not need a mask for that!!!
I will read all later but-do we post our trades in the ATHON gallery? I have to move my stuff from the Halloween athon to my gallery still.

I sewed more little books yesterday. I don't think anything will get done today though as my eldest son and his little ones will be here later and then we have a Halloween wing ding to attend this evening. I've got to 3yr old-proof the house before they get here!

I will trade the smaller of the books for an ATC and the largest one for a chunky page. Don't be shy! I have one more book done but forgot to take its picture. I'll do that afterwhile.

I have degenerative disc disease. amd my back hurts most all t he time.
so I will get on line when I get up-hopefully soon enuf to get on line and make it back to Wild Wing for the next round!!! Ouch sorry the fun caused you pain. I remember the haunted houses we (the PTA parents) made when my son was in school. I had a couple minutes of my son crying on a cassette tape when he was about 2yrs. I dubbed it over and over to fill a cassette. We stuck it in a trunk and had it playing with bloody rags hanging out of the trunk.:wideeyed:


I have managed to read the first 8 pages but still have to catch up with the rest. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month in Australia and I am just about to walk out the house in my pink pajamas with a shocking pink wig on my way to my sister's house for a Girls' Night In (fund raiser). Here is what I have created so far:
I believe it is Breast Cancer awareness here as well. I think some hospitals give free mammograms to those in need this month, if anyone wants to check into that. I have insurance so I get mine done at the end of November.



hmmm - will try and do some creating tomorrow - am in the throes of making a wall quilt at the moment I remember those days. When my son was growing up my obsession was Fabrics, quilting and costumes instead paints, paper and glue. LOL
