Your Host for this wonderful time of creation will be: donnacr

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am (JUST after midnight) on Thursday March 28, 2013 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Tuesday April 2, 2013

What we can do: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rolos, gothic arches, post cards – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create!

All mediums are welcome: collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting...

All styles are welcome: APCs, zentangles, stamps (postage and rubber), stickers, various colour schemes (b/w, pastels/brights, autumn/winter/spring/summer shades, single colours, etc)

And of course we can trade .

OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS A-THON:

Thursday: Gardens (for Gethsemane)

Friday: use things that are torn - for the whole card or as an element

Saturday: 'hide' something on your card - either by using a cover/door/etc or by cleverly including it in your design (like 'Where's Wally?')

Sunday: eggs and bunnies, celebrations

Monday: add word/words to your card, try a foreign language

Tuesday: monochromatic (ie one colour with all its shades)


This a-thon is open to everyone and every kind of level and types of art.

What IS an ATART?
It’s an All Types of ART marathon where you can create art, made over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

HOW IT WORKS:
Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your Athon gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.
After all the trading is done move your creations OUT of the Athon Gallery and into their correct Galleries - 'Available ATCs' or 'Mail Art'

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE:
When you find a piece of art you would like to trade, 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.
1) Go to your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location”.
2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
3) Go to your post and hit 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) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_64.jpg [/IMG

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

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. Find the word or letters s m l in the address and change it to 'small' or 's'.

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:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/show....php?p=1148669

NEW TO A-THONS? If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me 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.

IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

Are people happy with the suggested challenges?

I didn't even think of Springtime as a theme as we are still stifling under the Summer heat and hoping for a cool, colourful Autumn.

I am looking forward to some beautiful cards and some frenzied trading - CAN"T WAIT!!

The a-thon officially starts here in Australia in just under 3 hours - I won't have time to play until tomorrow evening (hopefully) so here is an 'unofficial' card to give you something cute to look at - the egg does open up as well

Nice card jonquil....LOL
*Sticking my nose in* Looks like I might get a little time to play amongst packing up the house, we are getting new carpet and lino so everything has to be moved out of the house!

I'll be observing and enjoying the art, as usual.

Donnacr
03-27-2013, 10:03 AM
mouseit - what a HUGE job!!:swoon: getting both done at once leaves you nowhere to 'dump the junk'. How long will it take and where will you be living while it is happening?

Donnacr
03-27-2013, 11:13 AM
I have managed to make a few 'legal' gardens for you to relax in while I am asleep - they are EATART #1-5 (as it is now after 2am I will add them to my Gallery tomorrow/today:sleep:) #5 is a chunky lite (ie no danglies)

jonquil - I forgot to say 'Thanks' for starting the ball rolling

I can't wait till everyone else can start too.

My day is pretty full but I will be back in late afternoon with more - I hope to see lots I want to trade for;)

Mouseit
03-27-2013, 08:50 PM
Donna, they tell me it will be only one day...but I am thinking it might be two! LOL
Not sure of the actual date as we are waiting for the "Ordered carpet" to come in.
but its the week of April 10th - 17th sometime.

YIPPPEEEEEEEEEE yep the athon has started and I am sneaking in here to "watch" the art as I have nothing to do at work, no students here today and teacher ouot of school on a "moderation training day" However we DO HAVE HOT CROSSED BUNS... with chokkie chips.

jonquil
03-27-2013, 08:55 PM
I am at work as well - but we do have classes on - however my Extension 1class 'democratically' voted to cancel their class after lunch - they were very persuasive and they were going to be doing individual work on their assessments tasks anyway!!

Gorgeous easter basket, jonquil.
And I LOVE your (earlier posted) egg that opens, but then, anything that opens or moves is my weakness.

I have never played in one of these, so let's see if I can get up to speed.
It just turned midnight here.

I hope to start tomorrow evening. I'm moving in the morning and there is a lot of snow shoveling to do before I can move anything to my "new" house = I'm moving to our summer cabin.

Mouseit
03-28-2013, 08:21 AM
Well I have finished the first one, but its drying I have put some "crackle" on it...LOL So will upload it tomorrow between packing the boxes... Sniisk I know the feeling we have to clear out our house for new carpet... almost as bad as moving!

Good idea Ducky. I'm going to go outside too, put some out corn for the deer and seed for the birds. I've got a couple of woodpeckers out there squabbling about territory. That are putting on quite a show. At least that is what I think they are chatting about.

Ok Here's number 1 now that it is dried... I have given myself the promise that I must pack 1 box of mice before I do another card and as I get done I will come and do a card.. *sigh* or I would not be playing at all....

I'm hoping to have a very crafty long weekend so thought I'd pop back to ATCSforAll for the first time in almost a year to see if there was an Easter ATATHON I could take part in... then I saw who the host was. :( So maybe next year? Just kidding, mum! :P

Everyone's work so far looks great. Hope to be back soon with a couple of pieces to share.

Goodmorning all! I see 'torn' is the theme of the day, that is an easy one for me! I always tear the paper for the backgrounds :biglaugh:, I only use scissors for the image. So, let me get some work out of the way and then I will go back to my craft table (the dinner table...).

Beautiful art, everyone! I'm working on a couple of PIF's this morning, and perhaps some swap cards.
It's a gorgeous sunny day, (so GOOOD for the soul!) and I will probably spend a good portion of it out in the garden. Hubby is building the second raised bed today, and we'll have to head out for some more veggie starts from our favorite local nursery outlet.

Lots of wonderful cards! I always enjoy marathons!

I received a beautiful bouquet of flowers and took some pictures while the flowers were still fresh so this is what I've been working on:

The photos are my original pictures digitally edited, mounted on a card stock background and embellished with small hand stamped images. The digital effects can be hard to see on an ATC sized print but each print is slightly different.

I hope that your Muse and your hands work well together on the art piece for her family - what a wonderful gift.

Being on the other side of the world to most of you girls is becoming very frustrating :mad:- just as I find a beautiful card I want. . . I discover that it traded while I was asleep! I think I will just have to give up sleep for the rest of the Athon (some 'interesting' cards may be the result of that much sleep deprivation:err::idea::sleep:)

Amy, I'm so sorry. Terrible news. But together you and the whole family will survive. No one will be alone.

I got some scary news on Thursday but it wasn't that bad. A truck crashed with my little brothers car on an icy road. The car was destroyed but my brother and her wife survived. Of course they got some damage but they will recover perfectly. The situation was very scary when a truck driver didn't notice them and the truch was coming to the wrong side of the road.

It seems to be a horrible time all around - I'm going to pray for the families who lost someone or had something else happen to them, as well as for the others' safety. :wubclub:


Thank goodness, it's not horrible for me right now; we had my grandmother here for lunch (carrot soup, lamb roast and mousse au chocolat - all delishious) and cake, and I'm invited to visit with an old friend and her family for dinner (OMFG, who's supposed to eat all that!) later today.
It's a very happy Easter day, but I don't think I'll have time to play... :sad:

I made a set of inchies, though! Started them on Friday (torn background), but only finished them last night. Would love to trade them! :wubclub:

I just wanted to share the new challenge over at the Unstampabelles blog since I'm part of their design team. This month it is Anything But a Card, so if you're interested in a chance to win the sticker pack up for grabs we would love to see some ATC/chunky/inchie etc entries. You can create anything you want as long as there is no stamping involved.

I know this Easter I am busy a lot with the packing to have our floors done, but usually I would be ok with the athon. I do think sometimes that they are not advertised enough, so only a few of us know its going on. I usually only know a day or two before they start and sometimes even after they start. There has to be a sure fire way of letting us all know its on.
I would say that a lot of us are probably busy though.

here are the last ones for me. LuvLoz has first pick. would love to make some more trades if anyone is interested.

as for the a-thons...ive missed the last few and this one was hit or miss but i still made some wonderful trades and had a lot of fun creating. there must be a way to get the word out to people when they are coming up. right now you really have to be looking in the right place to know one is coming up and some may not even know where to look.

anyway...

I thought this a-thon would be more popular but at this point we have had exactly the same number of people posting art as we had in the SPAT. Weird. Do we have too many a-thons or are they too long? Or are we just too busy because of other commintments?

I don't think we have too many - I love them and I was lucky this time as hubby went away for 3 days and I only had the cat and chicken to look after!! We have had a few close together but I also think that people have other commitments and things happening in their lives that preclude a lot of participation - keep 'em coming is what I say

Here are my final cards for this Athon:
I forgot to load my final bunnies for Monday (some of them use edging strips with characters on them - does that count as words for Monday's theme?!?)

I have been thinking about people's comments on knowing when various Athons are on - would you all mind if I started a list with your names - 'People to notify when an Athon is happening'?
Then I just have to know that an Athon is happening and I can group PM you all with the details. I'll add to the list with each Athon - suggestions for people who didn't play this time but you think would like to know about the next one would be gratefully accepted.

Donna, I already have my own list of people joining a-thons regularly. When ever I'm hosting, I always send invitations to all those people.

I'd been meaning to play all along, but simply did not have the time. I was at our cabin doing spring cleaning, (like sniisk at hers!) but also visiting relatives, etc. I still enjoyed looking at the cards being posted, and had some napkins with me that I cut to prepare for beeswax collages. After coming back home, I finished my first art last night (4 chunkies with text) and will hopefully get to scan them in an hour or two. There are also some backgrounds waiting for monochromatic challenge, so I hope there'll be some traders around still today!

Just like some others, I had planned to play much more, but then there was so much to do, and when I finally had a day with nothing to do yesterday I made some swap things and then read the rest of the evening.
I really would have liked to play a bit today, but I'll be at a meeting instead (=stuck in the uni building until after dinner :cry:), so I might not get anything more done. :skeptical:
Busy, busy!

Oh I have to say there are really some beautiful art created this week end. I was so busy and never had time to play, but I did stop by to check out how everyone was doing. Donna you always have the most beautiful cards. I don't know have you can make so many all the time.

Kristin was glad to see you were able to play.
Weavershand you were really rocking also.

I do love the a-thon bur this was just one of mu most busiest times this year. So please don't think about not having them. some is always ready to play.

Happy Easter.

Hi everyone. I think it would be great to advertise more for up coming marathons, maybe somehow to those who haven't played before. I have on occasion sent PMs to some traders from prior swaps. That may get the word out.

Anyone can feel free to add me to any list. ;) And I love to hear about swaps even if I can't play.

id love to be on a list. ive always appreciated Sanna's invites and reminders especially. i cant always play or may be able to just play a little. even if i cant play, i love looking in at all the art being made. i definitely dont think we are having too many and actually i think the more we have going on, the more likely some will be able to at least play some.

sharlene54
04-02-2013, 03:41 PM
I also like being notified even if I can't play. If I'm co=hosting, I also try to send out PMs as do others.

In our steampunk thread there has been a discusion about things slowing down all over the forum. I really do think we need to all try to take a few minutes here and there to do little things like give rep hugs and Gallery comments. If you can say same something more than I love it, it is also helpful. Also reach out and share with the friends you are trading when you find an a-thon or a swap you think they might like. There were a lot of other great ideas shared by pixeldog, but that is some of them.

I to go through dry spells here at AFA where I am just doing things elsewhere, but this is my home away away from home and there are some people here that I feel as close to as I do most of my family. At least I talk to them more often, LOL

It would just be a shame if we were to let the site and all it offers to slowly dry up and blow away. And yes, for me too it has been a busy weekend. We were away two days and we came back we decided to rip out the carpeting in the trailer. Matt had a lot to do outside, so I actually did this. My right arm and shoulder are very tender today so not sure what the day brings.

Now I am going to have to go in search of area rugs or other floor coverings. With Calicat around life isn't so simple. She is a very loving old toothless cat that had a very ruff life. My husband rescued her and is willing to do whatever it takes to make the rest of her days good. I don't know if it is just because she is old, or because she lived on the streets so long or if it's because Bart and especially Ash pester her so much that she started going outside the box. (We actually had 4 boxes) What ever it is I am at wits end and I refuse to live in a home/trailer that smells like an old catbox.

We have started taking her back over to my studio trailer and locking her in the kitchen at night. This should help but will be a problem when the tempature gets real cold again. Good thing I am already grey so now I just have to keep from pulling my hair out! LOL

I always try to play in an athon, because I just LOVE them! But sometimes life gets in the way... I was here yesterday, but there was no-one online, I did get some cards done, but no-one to share them with... I was feeling a bit sad.. :cry:

Anyway.... when is the next athon? :jiggy:

04-02-2013, 04:45 PM
Oh I'm sorry I missed you, Kitty (please don't be sad)! It seems Life got in the way of my good intentions to participate this weekend's -athon. There were lots of scheduled and unscheduled events that took my attention--all of it good, of course.

Everyone made such beautiful artwork -- lots of wonderful Easter eye candy. :yes: I love -athons as it is stimulating to know others are creating in the same virtual art room. It gets my Muse going to see what others are producing at the same time as I am. Healthwise, however, it hasn't been a great year. Maybe in another month I will be able to participate more fully in the next artathon. Do let me know!

I think we decided last summer that it worked best to have several athons and hope that everyone gets a chance to play at least once. It does get crazy once summer starts and people travel.

For me, the only days I know will be bad are SeArttle (because I get to go!) but those who can't go might want an athon. I don't think the dates of the Milwaukee event are pinned down yet, but I won't be going to that, so there's another chance. I also noticed that, if my calendar is right, Memorial Day in the U.S. (May 27) is a bank holiday in the UK? If so, that might be a good time.

I'm on AFA several times a day, admiring art, but I haven't been joining swaps or asking for trades as much because I'm just busy getting ready for SeArttle, and then I have a couple of summer projects I expect to be busy with, but don't know when yet. All that makes me leery of offering to host, but I am always willing to play!

I think the athon siggies draw people in, but I'm so lousy at making siggies. Technically, I know how, but....it's always really frustrating.

CynthiaSillitoe
04-02-2013, 05:19 PM
It seems like we also decided last summer that some people have more free time during the week.

Remember the Olympic-a-thon last summer? I'd have to dig it up, but I know some actually managed to post art each day for it.

Most times I forget to go looking in the forums and athon page, and Sniisk always sends me a reminder - thank you!!
I just wish the reminder was sent a week earlier...LOL as most of my plans are then set.

I guess we are all busy people and with doing swaps or hosting it always seems I don't have enough time in the day..... my 2nd love is reading and as this also helps me relax sometimes I just want to do that too.

I do love participating in Athons and will continue to do so if I am able to.

Thanks Donna for hosting this one!!!

Maybe what we need is a way to put athons in a diary type option in our userCP so we know when they are on.

ACK!!!! I turned off my computer and when I turned it back on ALL of my bookmarked sites are gone and even though I stay logged into sites like this, it didn't recognize me and I had to log in again. I tried three times to do a system restore to a different save points but none worked. I really really hate computers!!!!
