APC-a-thon on October 10th-13th

dsign49 will he hosting. Co-hosts are jonquil and mariloupatch.

CHALLENGES or THEMES (optional)

Thursday...Fall or Autumn colors for background or fall leaves (pertaining to fall)
Friday....Postage stamp on the card
Saturday....Halloween
Sunday....flowers, birds or what every you desire.

Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am on Thursday morning, October 10, 2013
and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm on Sunday evening, October 13, 2013.

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 Thursday (your time zone - which is really Midnight on Wedneday 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:
http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2115

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've been waiting for an APC swap to hopefully move my 2 decks along!!! Thanks for hosting, Ladies!

If anyone has postage stamps with a famous woman or a US president on it I'd be delighted to trade for anything you need to work on completing your decks! My APC wish list is on my profile page.

Looking forward to seeing great stuff posted!!

Ace with New Zealand Silver Fern on reverse

8,9,10 with Adelaide Casino on reverse with hole to show they have been used in the casino. (Hole is not visible from front) but after the cards are used a couple of times as playing cards in the casino they cannot be used again and to stop punters buying up the packs and subsitutuing the cards when playing, a hole is punched through the pack to stop this!!. I only have one pack so when gone I do not have any more.

Checking in & subscribing thread! I'm going away for a craft meet this weekend, but am not sure if I'm able to pack ATC/APC supplies along, as I also need to do some other stuff there. Anyway, I'll pop in to admire the work by you ladies.

Maggie, I'll check my stamp stash at some point, if not for this weekend. I'd love to trade with you again, and of course everyone else who likes to make APCs with stamps of famous women. That's what I'm collecting, too!

Great cards! I need to do a couple of things and then I get to play!

dsign49
10-10-2013, 12:14 PM
Oh no Mouseit so sorry that you got abused. So sad that some people have to be so picky art is art. I don't think they will use them in a real card game. Size does not matter to me the art is what counts.

Jonquil and mariloupatch you have been turning out some fine pieces, I have to bake some bar for Saturday and then I hope to get some cards done.

Cathy love your cards too.

I will be back later.

KESagers
10-10-2013, 01:00 PM
Oh so many great cards already!

Mouseit - I know poker cards are hard to find across the pond - if you ever change your mind and want to play let me know and I'll send you a deck.

BTW - I am interested in all size APCs and I'm hoping to play around with some candy corn mini APCs if I can jump in a play a little. Here's hoping I can get my chores done today. This has been a crazy week.

dsign49
10-10-2013, 02:49 PM
Kristin do get your chores done so you can play dying to see your cand corn cards.

I made some and will post them.

dsign49
10-10-2013, 02:51 PM
These are what I have done. Bars are baked.

10-10-2013, 03:19 PM
Here is my first few. Now the ace I already had, but he is in the same series i am making. The others I just made. All of them have a spade somewhere. And there are four dinosaurs on the four of spades, but one it really little! All are from books and then acrylic painted to give more color (except ace)

angelmuz
10-10-2013, 03:25 PM
Jack of diamonds is hanging upside down and swinging from chandelier, King of Diamonds is standing on his stash outside of castle. All from books, and added lots of glitter.

jonquil
10-10-2013, 03:30 PM
wonderful everyone - I love getting up in the morning and checking out all the creations!!! Everyone has been busy!!!!

angelmuz
10-10-2013, 04:04 PM
And the hearts i made for this whole set.. the jack i had made previously, The king has eaten too many hearts, he has two sparkly hearts for his eye teeth, the two of hearts has two best friends sharing their love. I am gonna take a break and come back and see about doing something different. Can only find so many spades in my books!lol!

jonquil
10-10-2013, 04:05 PM
Here are a couple more from me before I need to go and get ready for work!! Will certainly be checking in during the day

angelmuz
10-10-2013, 04:15 PM
MMM. these are some weird cards i found in my stash. The D stands for what? Dutchess??? The three of similar color tone are from a deck I found a while ago (Junk store dumpster diving) and they are from either japan or china. I am hoping to do something with them... but don't know what yet? If any of you girls wants a card or two from the (oriental) deck let me know... they are kinda different.

jonquil
10-10-2013, 04:22 PM
Would love one from the oriental deck!!!!

jonquil
10-10-2013, 04:23 PM

What fun! Thanks for the invite. It'll have wait until tomorrow though. I'll be back and ready to Art.

FlyingPhoenix
10-10-2013, 07:15 PM
I peeked at the gallery, and found all sorts of APC's so I had to go looking to see if there was an ATHON going on. ;)

Here's hoping I can play, but no guarantees as I've got a long day tomorrow, a wedding on Saturday and family day on Sunday. Might have to take my supplies with me though!

angelmuz
10-10-2013, 07:35 PM
Here are three i made from the oriental pack of cards. The queen of diamonds has paper from a hand painted signed parchment I found (goodwill dumpster) and beading from a hand beaded purse from india (same place) The Jack has very old hand painted paper from china or Japan on its base and the beading from the indian purse elsewhere. The crane card is really beautiful and special.. I have been saving these cranes for some time. Pulled them off of an old vintage box display a couple of years ago. They are made from all feathers. There is feather grass on the bottom of the card and a handmade bullrush from that same piece of art. The card is an asian one and is of swans I think... it is a three of spades. I can't do anything but scan it... so it is a really poor representation of it. It is really cool, but it is chunky.

angelmuz
10-10-2013, 08:06 PM
So girls I am pooped, have been fighting a mild cold, hence why i did nothing but play today... but off to bed early. Will try to get in time again this weekend if possible. I have been removing my cards off as they are traded... don't know how to write traded as everyone else does, but hopefully that will have the same effect. Gnight all

jonquil
10-10-2013, 08:14 PM
look after yourself angelmuz and hopefully you will be up for more creating tomorrow

jonquil
10-10-2013, 10:21 PM
I really don't like the fact that work gets in the way of art!!!! but wait - without work I wouldn't be able to fund the art - better get back to work!!!!

dsign49
10-10-2013, 10:45 PM
angelmuz goodnight...take dare of yourself and hope you feel better tomorrow.
jonquil work seems to get in my way too. I don't work away from home, but you know a housewives work is never done.

I think I will go to bed too. Goodnight all.

Just Ducky
10-10-2013, 11:01 PM
so OK all you APCer's needing some inuput on these slick playing cards...

1. what do you use to stick a cutout image on with ?
2. I see some made with what appears to be transparent (like Jonquil purple card higher up on this page.)
3. is there something I can use to color the card other then that ink stuff ?

so I really really want to try these again BUT... my images seem to snap off the card..
and I like using the Alcohol Ink but the dang stuff always gets on the back of my card. UGH..
oh well... ya know I can't stay away, so gonna gather me some stuff tomorrow after the dreaded grocery shopping trip and see what happens.. click with ya all later...

jonquil
10-10-2013, 11:21 PM
Ducky - I lightly sand the APC before I do anything - it gives it 'tooth' to make stuff adhere to it. I use gel medium as my adhesive for everything. The purple one is coloured with glimmer mist spray - but you could use paint that is a little diluted and sponge it on or even an inkpad and then a light spary with water to disperse the colour - I don't worry about what gets on the back - it adds character!!! and also the label I use with my info and stuff usually covers it up

Hope you will join us :biglaugh::baa::cat::duck:

Just Ducky
10-10-2013, 11:35 PM
Lisa... thank you for the hit up along the side of my thick head... I needed it..:confused:

I knew I was missing something.. SANDing... and I know that.. at least I use to know that. brain cells are leaking I guess... lol

the painting hints help also... OK... I am game to try APC again.. catch with you and fellow FULL DECK players tomorrow... nite nite

Good morning Ladies. I had my coffee (but should have some more, still not fully awake)
let the cleaning lady in (lovely polish girl!) and answered e-mails, put my gallery up-to-date, and finished reading this thread.
Great work all, I won't mention names, then I will not forget anyone, so I mean ALL of you wonderful job. Get better soon Tami, take care of yourself.
Hi Ducky it has been a while, I know you will come up with some wonderful art.

I just looked at all the cards. Wonderful, wonderful, WONDERFUL. I hope I have time to play. Lots to do, redoing the living room and dining room and all the contactors. Exciting to plan, not fun to do. Off to see about window treatments. I rather make APCS. Maybe later.

CynthiaSillitoe
10-11-2013, 01:07 PM
I have to take the :cat: in for her shots. Neither of us are excited about that. I hope to get some time to play this afternoon. If not, tomorrow for sure. After all, the :cat: will be busy ignoring me...

craftyvox
10-11-2013, 04:02 PM
Ohh I just realized there's another a-thon this weekend. APCs! I never made those.. I remember I once bought a pack of playing cards just to use them as backgrounds for APCs to find out they were the wrong size ;) Not sure whether I then tossed them and bought a pack in the proper size that's now in my drawer (unused still lol) or whether it's the original wrong-sized pack. Guess there's only one way to find out...

dsign49
10-11-2013, 04:18 PM
Oh my what beautiful cards.....so much to chose from.
Just Ducky glad you are going to give it a try.....like you I had to go grocery shopping this morning, but it is done until the next time.
Lisa lovely butterflies might have to have on of those.
mariloupacthes beautiful
I have made some too.

dsign you have been busy overnight - hope that everyone else can come and join us.

craftyvox - even if your cards are a little small ( I had that problem originally with the ones that are available in Australia) I attached them to an ATC size piece of card that suited - it leaves a little border - also just let people know they are a different size - I am happy to trade them

jonquil
10-11-2013, 04:52 PM
So it is Saturday and therefore Halloween challenge - have some ideas but breakfast first

Oooohh, an a-thon! :D
Just found jonquil's cards in the gallery and immediately ran over here. :)
I'm sad that I missed the first two days already, but then even if I had known this was running I wouldn't have had time to play Thursday or Friday because I was busy celebrating my birthday. ;) (Left-over cake, anyone?)
BUT now it's weekend which means it's playtime! :D I'll get those playing cards that the lovely KESagers sent me ready and see what happens. :)
But I guess I'll wait till after I slept. ;)

By the way, saying this while I still remember to: angelmuz (I think? Yeah, I guess it was her) had funky cards, among them a queen that had a big D as the "number", and wondered what that means. Here in Germany, the queen is called "Dame" and has a big D, and the... what's J mean? anyway, that one, he's called a "Bube" and had a B. ;) Might be the same in other countries around here?

I have been busy making table decorations for an all day function at church tomorrow and just loaded them in the car. I should be home by 6 PM and finally start on APCS...I am obsessed with collecting Jack cards with men or boys on them. My beloved deceased husbands name was Jack and now I have a new great grandson who was named Jack after him. If anyone would make me one or some I will make you any card number and theme you want. Just PM me........

Oh wow nancy, If I can get to it tomorrow i will for sure try to make you a cool one. Mouseit... join us... i too have been abused for stuff on here, but only once and well, lots of people will stick up for you if you are!! And Prayer, thanks for letting me know that... must be a european queen!! The J on US cards are for Jack, like Knave or Knight in Europe... not really sure why we call him Jack though??? So I made some Steampunk cards for fun tonight. The scanner doesn't do them much justice I am afraid! They are made from found objects, metal goodies, strange papers and empossing powder and inks. THE Bruiser, is the winning wrestler.. he has lots of metal stars, old journal paper, clock hand exclaimation point. THE LOSER His clock has run down and he has a wrench in his socket... poor guy. OLD SHOE, is really dirty and dingy and the old real key was found inside it and is rusted badly so be careful. CAMEO is just that.. with embossed sparkles on frame, metal parts and a beautiful glassy beaded jewelrey attachment.

10-11-2013, 10:19 PM
So next on the auction block... er... getting carried away again.... A six and seven of spades... rreally love these ones, the color is really nice. I used a napkin from good old Germany.. and trust me, much nicer than the dollar store napkins im used to. Don't know how it is made, but its tres chic. Feathers are on these as well. and a found card. I really like them so if no one wants them... I am gonna keep them... ha ha... going once going twice... oh yes and two pretty black and white birdies, which are somewhat plain, and if no one wants them by tomorrow night I may fiddle with them some more... but sometimes I like simple... so we will see

craftyvox - even if your cards are a little small ( I had that problem originally with the ones that are available in Australia) I attached them to an ATC size piece of card that suited - it leaves a little border - also just let people know they are a different size - I am happy to trade them

There's an idea I hadn't thought of! So people won't mind if it's matted on another ATCsized piece of cardstock, as long as the front shows the .. cardthingy (can't think of what it's called in English!). I sorta thought it was also important that the back of an APC was clearly a playing card still... no clue where I got that idea from lol.

craftyvox - it matters to some people - but it seems like most of us playing this time don't mind. The most important thing is to communicate clearly in your description and again when you trade and then there wont be any confusion. I'll send you some poker cards.

I know someone mentioned sanding the cards and it's a great tip - most of the cards here in America are coated and resist most adhesives - the glued or taped item just peels right up if you don't rough up the card. I have had good luck with the super sticky tape that has the red backing.

I'm off to tackle my chores of the day and see if I can get them done in time to make some more APCs. We went to the orchard last weekend and I need to make another batch of applesauce. The apples are so sweet this year no sugar needed! :)

Enjoying all the cards that are being posted!

So when I sat down with the mini cards they were so darn cute I couldn't figure out how to alter them. Instead I made 4 folded folios and put them in the pockets. A departure from the traditional APC but here they are if anyone is interested. If you want a specific set of 4 cards in your pockets let me know and if I can make it happen I will.

Pocket folded folio in the size of a traditional ATC with 2 mini candy corn playing cards in the outer pocket and 2 mini cards in the inner pocket.

4 individual folios available for trade:

Here's what I have:

"Key to my heart" is a bit of a sticker party. ;)
Last weekend my mom and I went to a craft fair and bought so bloody much... :err: I used a background stamp and some of the stickers I bought there on this card (combined with others I still had). Fun!

"Discover" has new silver sticker stuff, too, and I really like how this one turned out! The picture of the woman with the camera is cut out from a brochure about an art exhibition, so it's a proper artwork! Love it. :)

Discover is available, but Key is traded, thanks! <3

I have been trying to finish this deck, but not making it a prioity. Just love some of the cards and just want to make trades.
Well made some cards and it got to be a few more than I wanted to make, but I wanted to finish this box of playing cards. So while they were drying I cleaned up my table, which was quite a mess. I don't know how one person and get so much stuff out and in the way that I had hardly any place to work. Wouldn't you know under all that stuff I found 2 more cards, I had quite, so they will have to be for next time.

I so wish this marathon would go on like . . . forever! Real life intruded and I wasn't able to play as much as I wanted but I sure enjoyed seeing all the art that was posted and I'm already looking forward to our next APC-athon cuz I have a ton of cards I never got to use!

Standard question: Is anyone else waiting to mail until after the Halloween-a-thon?

Cynthia, I'm game to post a few cards tomorrow. It's Thanksgiving in Canada so no jammed calendar! A friend is making dinner and just requested wine to my offer to help!

Trading has been a bit slower than usual for me in an APCathon. Anyone else finding this??? The trades I have are GREAT so perhaps this time around the quality has to be the measure of success! Usually it's both quality and quantity!

Thanks to our hostesses for initiating and playing!

We can play tomorrow....I was hoping for more player, but I'm happy that we had some. You may be on your own some as I have to get ready for some little people. I will check in from time to time to see if I can make some more trades.

Please go through tomorrow and have fun.

yes I say lets keep at it... actually I thought it went through till monday cause its a day off here in canada (long weekend canada). so i am game... I also don't feel there is enough time to both create and trade. Perhaps we should create one weekend and trade the next... ha ha

any of you people who are getting ready to leave... jfi... I am gonna be posting several cards made from a pink breast cancer deck. I found a print, some artist made.. in my california goodwill dumpster dive. It is of various women cartoons, superheroes, villians etc. I am using that and the other cool finds I have (german napkins, art from the met in nyc postcards,) So if you are interested in that type of set... feel free to check back in later. Its only eight in canada... so I got a bit more time to finish them!

10-13-2013, 11:35 PM

I 'm glad you stopped by and admired the art.

Just Ducky
10-14-2013, 12:08 AM
YEA... Mousie if a Duck can (almost) do these hair pulling APCs... you can too...

Just Ducky
10-14-2013, 12:23 AM

so after the midnight hour, guess I need sleep, especially if I gonna try this again tomorrow (later today)
nite all you APCers...

Nancy
10-14-2013, 12:54 AM
Tami, your cards are so fun!! Lucky Ducky looks like you got some great stuff. Our sale like that is 2 weeks away,,can hardly wait...Last year I spent about 30 dollars and it took 3 trips to unload the car. The shop has rented out tables to 48 crafters so this will be a big one. I love it when people pay the shop twenty bucks or more for a kit of coordinated papers, ribbons, beads etc and they decide not to use it and put it in the next sale for 2 or 3 dollars....I also got a bunch of bottles of Stickles and Glitter Mist for a quarter each and SomerSet magazines for 50 cents. Maggie you and Angel need to go to bed it must be 2 or 3 AM there.

Nancy
10-14-2013, 09:56 AM
Oh no, not jokers we are all Queens that reign over quaint little art spaces and buy scraps of junk instead of jewels and have the absolute power to spread beauty, joy and goodwill all over the world with our little bits of art.....Hummmm, I think I will go make me a crown with that lovely piece of glitter paper that I found at the goodwill!!

Ladies we are the best...no one can out do us.....we save money and make expensive art.:biglaugh::biglaugh:
No we don't have mail today, because it is Columbus Day.
Mouseit...make some for the Halloween ATART...Some one will want them...me
I don't think we have anything like that around here where you can pick-up art supplies for little or nothing. :arghh: I will have to ask my daughters if they have that in the Bismarck.
We will play today yet, just as well as it is raining here. I won't get mine in the mail until the end of week or early next week.

Have fun today

My cards will be going out this week. I have been busy with Grandkids all week. The last ones went home today, but we had a good time considering we had to spend more time in the house then they really like to when the are at the farm.

So until the next a-thon.
