FIRST EVER FOODIE-A-THON
MAY 23-26

Your host is me, Native Killette (Kearston) and your cohost is Colourful.Daze (Danette). Feel free to ask us questions!

Start time in your own time zone will be 12:01am, THURSDAY, MAY 23 and end time in your own time zone will be 11:59pm, SUNDAY, MAY 26.

WHAT'S A FOODIE-A-THON?
A foodie-a-thon is similar to other athons except here we're going to make all of our art food themed! And not just food! Any edibles, such as food, drinks, booze etc as well as kitchen appliances & utensils.

WHAT CAN WE MAKE?
Well I'm glad you asked! We can make recipe cards, chunkies, inchies, ATC's, postcards, assemblage art, art dolls, canvases, altered art, felt food, clay miniatures, and any other format you can think of!

Any media or style can be used, feel free to mix it up! There are no restrictions to this athon except the theme must be foodie-centric!

HOW DO WE TRADE?
Participants will post their art to the thread, and if you dig it, PM them and ask for a trade! If someone likes yours, they will tell you too!

Post your art in the ATHON gallery, and after its over, or its traded, move it to the correct section of your gallery.

All trades made during the athon are subject to the two week send out rule! Don't leave people hanging. :D

OPTIONAL CHALLENGES:
These are challenges for each day of the athon, you may follow them, or use them as a prompt, or don't use 'em at all! We don't care, just have fun. :)

THURSDAY: STAMP WITH FOOD!
Cut up a vegetable, or a piece of fruit, or other food (get creative), dip it in some ink or paint and throw it down on some paper. Use it as a focal point or a background. Food that make nice stamps: green peppers, celery, apples, etc.

FRIDAY: ALTERED KITCHEN UTENSILS
Grab a spoon, grab a fork or make like Grrrdjules and grab a masher! We're going to alter some utensils. Paint, collage, shellac, draw on or otherwise mangle any type of kitchen utensil you want! Metal or wooden, it doesn't matter. Make a doll, or paint a tiny chef!

SATURDAY: VEGETARIAN RECIPE CHALLENGE
Keeping it simple, but I figured we would give a shoutout to all of the unsung vegetarians out there! Use your favorite or make up a new vegetarian recipe, and make a recipe card (3x5), chunky, or ATC with it! If you're feeling especially frisky, and want imaginary bonus points, create a whole vegetarian (or vegan!) dinner including appetizer, dessert & cocktail!

SUNDAY: ASSORTED FUN STUFF
1. Create a piece of art, any size, with a chef on it.
2. Create a recipe card or chunky with a cocktail recipe on it.
3. Make a piece that involves actual fake plastic food on it somewhere.
4. Make a regional (your part of the world) dish into a recipe card, chunky, etc.

More challenges may be added before start of athon!

Everybody get ready. ;)

native killette
05-21-2013, 07:28 AM
Glad to hear it mariloupatch!

Evalila-is it metric? I know some people on the site don't convert, and whoever ends up with the recipe has to look it up. But it was nice of you to convert. :D

This punky peach has a grape mohawk - she is a doll made of things we eat; and I can't say how much I am laughing at this grape mohawk. I am still figuring her eyes...
Oh and found this cute little box about the size of atcs-made in Japan for the kitchen. Japanese figures playing traditional instruments like the shamisen made of beans!

Mmmm, you guys are making me hungry (even though we just ate dinner *lol*)!
TF, darling, I might have told you but... your art is so amazing! I even adore the food with faces, something I don't normally like.

And Evelyn, yummy - I used to make those with my grandma. Whenever I was there, I bugged her until she took out her machine thingy that makes shreds out of the potatoes. Only I know them as Kartoffelpuffer... something regional?

VickyZ, lovely cards! I really enjoy the beeswax ones, especially the French chocolate one. (And I need a smiley that has chocolate smudges on the face and licks its lips ;) )

Everyone else: you're doing a super job here! Art on!

See you all tomorrow!

05-23-2013, 04:13 PM

Looks like you gals have been getting things cooking today! Here is my little something that I made this morning. Okay, I don't know really how practical these are but they are foodie themed straight pins made from classic Shrinky Dink plastic. Super fun and easy. Sorry the pic is bad, I couldn't get my camera to focus on these little buggers.

they are making me want a hot dog or a soft pretzel- so they are appetite makers. They are very cute foodies.

Oh those are awesome! Did you bake them with the pins stick in already? I love the pretzel and burger ;)

Charlie Brown
05-23-2013, 09:10 PM
Yep, yep! And I then stuck them into this block of really thick foam and just shot them with my heat gun. Didn't even have to heat up the oven...

05-23-2013, 09:33 PM
Hello everyone...working on a couple ATCs...not promising anything yet :)

native killette
05-23-2013, 09:35 PM
Can't wait to see them Danette!

CB- so the pins stuck okay to the plastic without any glue? That's pretty sweet. Wish I had a heat gun. Would a blow dryer be hot enough?

Charlie Brown
05-23-2013, 09:48 PM
NK, I popped them through the plastic before shrinking them and they melt/shrink around the pin. Not sure if a hair dyer would work, you could always test it out. You can also put them in the oven, stick them in a carrot or potato to hold them upright - don't eat the carrot or tater,of course...but I guess you could cut it up and stamp with it when you're done.

Here's my last post until tomorrow - I still need to glue the bases to them, but wanted to share. Night, night girls! Have fun arting.

Peachy has snails on her grape leaf-


When you started talking about a "grape" mohawk, I kept thinking color, and it took me a day to realize that a grape mohawk was literally a grape mohawk.
But I did find the snails, and the chicken, and the garters, and you (I mean ewe).

I made a bunch of 3" doll rod Boy Scouts when I taught knot tying (Using the 3" body and the arms, which were 1/2 doll rods inserted at right angles to the body,) the boys had a base to tie their knots. I bet I could do a chef guy on the same principle. Where did I leave that hacksaw?

Now ewe are making me laugh! As to the grape color- I have seen many a grape color mohawks. My son with black hair dyed his hair purple and no one noticed- that 15 year fellow was very disappointed.

I got the new version of Elements a few months ago but haven't found my way around the program yet and thought this would give me an excuse to start to do so. It's not at all like the much older version I had been using - little bit of a learning curve to find what I am and am not "allowed" to do.

This is one of my favorite pictures of Calvin. You have seen it before on a series of ATCs - used differently - and I'm sure you will see it again - used differently - but for this marathon it is a straight digital card printed on photo paper and offered unlimited.

Good Morning Everyone!
I didn't realize the foodie-a-thon had already started! You all started it off with a bang with all the great artwork I've seen here! And we have a movie star in our midst! Way cool!

I've been up all night making food. I didn't get around to making any bacon, sorry. Perhaps later today... for the time being I have some eggs, a pancake, a couple of doughnuts and a tiny piece of white bread. Oh and a cherry too! They all have a little button magnet sewn inside of them. If you're hungry, these little morsels will not fill you up! They are all made out of felt, handsewn.
If you're interested, shoot me off a PM.

I'm headed off to city-wide yard sales in about half an hour. I'm hoping to find some bargains!

Mornin'...I mean good afternoon gals! I've been busy this morning. I'm coming to find out that the way I do my recipe cards is not very condusive to quick turnaround athons. I do a lot of gluing and drying in between heavy books - lots of times a few times with the same card :wideeyed:. I'll get some stuff out there for trading yet today though.

I made a whole bunch of homemade printed papers with my gelli plate this morning. I was doing them out in the garage and ran out of space to put the wet prints so I started laying them on the hood of our car.

Charlie Brown

It depends on what kind of work you like to do. I think if you are a collage and multimedia type of artist you will absolutely love it. You have to prepare a bit for it, it's not worth getting it out for one or two pieces. Get it out and go crazy, and then you have the cleanup. It is wonderful for backgrounds.

THURSDAY: STAMP WITH FOOD!
Cut up a vegetable, or a piece of fruit, or other food (get creative), dip it in some ink or paint and throw it down on some paper. Use it as a focal point or a background.

I used a cut carrot for the circles.
It turned out like "Bingo Dauber" circles, which I don't have, so I gotta remember to do this technique with a BIGGER carrot when I need "Bingo Dauber" circles.
