APC-a-thon on November 2-4

sniisk and minnkel and Wil are hosting

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Friday morning, November 2, 2012
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Sunday evening, November 4, 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

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 (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'm here, Do not know how much I'll get made for this a-thon. I really need to get my stuff ready to mail, or at least some of it, and then go do my day of errands in town tomorrow or the next day cause I am low on water. Normally it is a weekly run but I have been to busy :D lol.

Won't be there tomorrow, we made an appointment long time ago, with "old" university friends. Saturday is errand day first, and then I hope to play as well as half of Sunday...if...my daughter does not needs us to help renovating her house :sad:
Fingers crossed

I agree! We think they had to cut power to make certain repairs. From what I can tell most of the state is without Internet but Comcast isn't telling us anything.

Hmmmm I have a pack of playing cards but they are not quite wide enough - they are the right height but are only 2 1/4 inches wide so just putting it out there if you would like to trade they are slightly narrower than the norm. Must be a 'down under' thing.

jonquil
11-02-2012, 03:18 AM

If you cut a correct size card base, glue your playing card on it and then make your APC, it should word. But I really recommend on putting the back and card togerher before creating anything. Then you can hide the borders easier.

No, it's not just a 'down under' thing...most of our regular playing cards are smaller too. It's the POKER decks that are the correct size.
You could always mount your cards on a colorful card stock...but I'm sure as long as you state the size of your cards , there will be people willing to trade.

Here are my first ever APC, it's a collage on a stamped acrylic background.
I can trade them for an other APC, or an ATC or 6 inchies.

Jonquil - the cards are lovely!!!!

Kristin - Glad you are OK! The TV images of the devastation are pretty awful. How r u on the thread w/o Internet?

Here are my first offerings -

Our only connection to the outside world is our iPhones and radio. We just got the phones since they were giving the old ones away for free. Perfect timing. We have not lost cell service but many others have. We feel fortunate to be able to get info and contact family this way. Still on generator waiting for power.

Hi guys, i can't join in with you all cos most of my crafting stash is packed away waiting for a date for a home move. I am enjoying looking at all the eye candy tho. There is some gorgeous art here.
Could you tell me tho what size are your cards. Are they atc size as i can never find that size of cards and would love to altering a pack to swap.

For apc's you need poker cards. They have the proper size of 2,5"x3,5" . Bridge cards are narrower.

I have so many beautiful Bridge size cards. I don't know what to do with them. I bought them before I realized they were a different size.

Wil Opio Oguta
11-04-2012, 10:58 AM
Well you can glue a bridge card on an atc background and start working on it like that. Only make sure that you mention this with the description of the apc. I have several bridge cards in my decks, but I know that not everybody accepts these cards.

Good Morning Wil

Hope you had dreams of all the creative APCs you'll make today!

Here are 2 I dreamt of and woke up early to make!!!

11-04-2012, 11:30 AM
Lovely cards everyone! I have a questions:
Do you cover the back or only put your info?
Is it a rule that some part of the front of the card show - the number and suit?
Do people try to collect entire decks?

Thanks

CynthiaSillitoe
11-04-2012, 11:31 AM
I don't mind narrower cards, even if they're not on cardstock. When I fall in love with art, specifics don't matter. (Though it is good to mention their size.) Ok. I'm going to get something to eat and then head to the studio.....truly inspiring cards today!

maggiebloom
11-04-2012, 11:38 AM
Answer to Janjo:

I use a label to put my info on the back of the card.

Yes, the number and the suit must show - I prefer the upper left side

Yes, Many people collect decks of cards, usually based on a theme e.g. birds, butterflies, etc... except when the deck says Anything Goes!

Hope you'll get bitten by the APC bug! It's a lot of fun and a great community of artists, as you can see on this thread!
