Halloween Art-a-thon (ATART)
Starts at 12AM (the witching hour) on Oct 30, 2013 goes till Midnight Nov 3rd

Welcome and let’s 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, 4x4 lites, whatever you want.

Besides Halloween in all its shapes, sizes and colours – we also have beautiful Fall colors and Thanksgiving to include in our art.

Don’t forget that you can create art in ANY theme you like – don’t feel that you have to limit yourself to Halloween!!!

So now I want everyone to find a table in the art space that has been set up for the duration. On the left hand side of the room is the treats and drinks table – so far we have caramel apples, popcorn, pumpkin pie with whipped cream, a very large bowl of lollies and a savoury platter of cheeses and cold meats with some fresh bread. The drinks table has hot chocolate and marshmallows, apple cider and I have placed MariaP in charge of the Halloween cocktails so place your order!!!!

I will be drawing the lucky door raffle at the conclusion of the A-Thon - all who play will be eligible!!!

Challenges: rather than pick particular themes for each day (seeing as we are going for quite a few days!!!) I thought we could have a few challenge ideas for anytime during the run of the a-thon. It will be fun to see how many of each will end up being made.

1. Black Cats and Pumpkins
2. Steampunk Halloween
3. Use orange, purple and green (with a touch of black and/or white)
4. Trick or Treat
5. Autumn/Fall Colours

Make sure you let me know that your art is for the challenge when you post it as I will draw a winner for a second postcard from all the challenge art


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.

AWESOME intro, jonquil!

I'm getting my backgrounds ready.
I have alcohol ink and shaving cream backgrounds already made, and my house smells minty/soapy from the shaving cream, which is making me HUNGRY!!!
YUM!! Your table of food and drinks looks yummy. (I haven't touched anything yet! But I certainly am looking!)

Today I be stocking up on snacks and goodies to ensure my art area is appropriate equipped! Sadly, I do have a job to go to on Wed and Thurs (pays for the art supplies :laugh:), so I may be a bit slow to get started. This is my first a-thon, I'm getting excited!

I've got one more swap to complete before I'm a totally free woman. Good thing I have a few days to get those in!

I'm planning on playing, and I'm attempting to get a friend of mine to come over and play as well!

oh, I DO love Halloween, and I DO love athon's, and I DO love the athoner's that always show up! :jiggy::jiggy::jiggy: (and I DO love seeing new artists getting the Athon But and meeting them.)

I will be here! And hoping to be able to make some cards or postcards or mailart .

And I'll take my Baileys straight up, please......maybe with a little vodka and cream and ice. (in San Francisco they called that a "Smith&Wesson". )

Yup, girls, I'm on the hard stuff now. :shocked::D:twitcy:

Hear ya loud and clear, Esata!

They are a ton of fun, JJHere! But they are VERY addicting!

I've got a nice "Adult" Boston Cooler (my own recipe...Whipped Cream Flavored Vodka is involved) ready was well as a bottle of "Witches Brew" (Michigan-based wine that is yummily spiced) hidden under my art desk.

I'm going to re-find my art space from last night's artings with a friend and start getting supplies together. ^^ Might have to dig out the Haloween stamps and such!

Thanks for the invite jonquil. I do love an ATHON but I'm going to have sit this one out as I won't be home then. I'll be at my oldest son's house playing with grandkids. I'm sure we will do artwork of some sort but I won't be able to get online at son's house so no ATHON butt for me this weekend! You all have a fabulous time and I'll check out the goodies when I get back home sometime next week.

jonquil
10-28-2013, 05:33 PM
no worries Donna - you have a wonderful time arting with your grandkids - we know you will be with us in spirit!!!!

A friend at work bought some cute Halloween serviettes over the weekend and she brought me in some today - have some awesome ideas on how to use them but being at work I can't really do anything yet!!!!

This sounds like LOADS of fun, but it's....alas....the same weekend as our charity golf tournament at work. We have this every year to make money for Christmas for local families/children/elderly. Maybe another one for me at a later date! :sad:

10-28-2013, 07:44 PM
Decals_gal, sad that you can't play with us, but your charity golf tournament sounds like a wonderful thing to do - good for your karma at least! ;)
And I guess we'll be making a Christmas a-thon... and a post-Christmas a-thon... *lol* At least I hope we will! They're so much fun. :) I hope you'll be able to join us for one of the following a-thons!

And would you girls please pass me the Baileys? I can use one just about now. :wacko: My brain has knots in it from trying to understand this bloody professor, I swear! :geek: BUT Monday to Wednesday are my evil days, Thursday and Friday are almost free, so I'll have lots of time to play! :D

Just remember to tag me by name in the order, so that I can more easily find them, and I will do my best to deliver everyone's drinks! Service may be a bit slow at times, so bear with me, but I hope in the end everyone will be pleased!

Of course, you can order stuff that isn't on the menu. :yes:

I think you are on the same time zone as I am, so I would like to place an order for one of each, starting with 03 (to get the brain working at one minute past midnight), followed by 05 to keep me awake in the middle of the night, and the others in any order.......

I am told that if one drinks the drinks standing up, the alcohol cannot be absorbed (rather like eating standing up means the calories don't count! LOL) and I proise I won't drive

The shaving cream is just a carrier for the pigment, and "what to do" depends on who is making the cards.
Shaving cream and acrylic paint, or shaving cream and ink, or shaving cream and food coloring, and the end result varies with the cardstock, paper, book pages, watercolor or bristal board, or fabric used.

There are tons of videos out there if you google on "shaving cream technique".
I learned from a video with an 8 year old girl doing the demo - and I thought, if she can do it, I can do it.
My early attempts had problems, but I got some pointers from an expert on this site, and my cards have greatly improved. Unfortunately, I cannot find the video with the little girl, but here is one that is pretty clear to follow:
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/shaving_cream1/

I do have two shaving cream technique cards posted in my gallery.
Also know that this technique can get a bit messy, so make lots of cards once you start so you are not making too many messes, too often.:biglaugh:

Fantastic cards as always - I think my favourite is the little ghost saying 'Boo!'.

The perfect pal for my ghost (made using glow-in-the-dark thread and silver eyes, which didn't scan well :sad:)

Yes, Rita is unbeatable! :D Lovely start! :wubclub:
And Donna, I love those thread cards you're making (the snowmen and snowflakes, too)! Do you have a pattern or something, or do you just make up the form while you go?

miloccpep

I was trying SO hard to beat miloccpep to be first . . . but no-one can beat Rita :yes:
Fantastic cards as always - I think my favourite is the little ghost saying 'Boo!'.

The perfect pal for my ghost (made using glow-in-the-dark thread and silver eyes, which didn't scan well :sad:)

Can I get a drink now?

LOL! Muse decided to co-operate today. Guessed she returned to stay, I hope.

oh, oh , oh, ......can I start tonight? I mean after the witching hour? I believe the "witching hour" is twelve midnight, but a little known fact is that if you are over 60, the witching hour is actually when you first wake up and look in mirror. Truth, I googled it. :eek::yes: (Google stated that this does not apply to everyone, some people over 60 are drop dead gorgeous first thing in morning............hmmmmmm)

Rita, Donna, I am just pea green with envy (which is not a good color on me) that you've started already. and I Love your cards.

Oh my, I hadn't realized this was on already today! Just came across the thread as it's 5.45 a.m. here and I can't sleep. Maybe I should get up and start sorting out my table. Or perhaps start my day with a Bloody Mary... Wasn't it a drink designed for mornings?

Gorgeous art by everyone so far! And I like the idea of not naming separate challenge for each day - then everyone can do the themes one is most inspired by, any day each one has time!

I got a few more finished here. And then it's off to bed for me too.

Most cards available

All cards created with the Shaving Cream Technique
Shaving Cream and Acrylic Paint on MatteBoard with collaged magazine images
Colors have a tendency to blend.
I used orange and yellow with a hint of black.
Edges completed with metallic paste or glitter pen.

Card is very aromatic with a soapy/minty fragrance from the shaving cream.
The fragrance does dissipate, but if you are alergic to perfume, please do not ask to trade for this card.

Oh my Suze, The three men is the most awesome piece of art I think I have ever seen.....I wish I could copy it and use it for my screen saver!! My art room is 10'X10'
with a big closet and I can barely get to my desk....My daughter has commented several times that I should use my living, dining room for my art stuff sinse I seldom use it for anything else..and I am beginning to consider it. I am past the age of worrying about what the neighbors or anyone else thinks!!

oh, Nancy...thanks so much for compliment.

you know I'm older than dirt, live alone, and my whole kitchen, including table is my art space.
heck, I ain't entertaining no gentlemen callers anytime soon.
I'll post a pic of kitchen if you'll post a pic of your 10 by 10 art room.

HEY ! I would love to see everyones art table ....I think its inspiring to see where artists work. (If I could get someone to row me across the atlantic ocean I'd go visit Sanna with her wonderful art space.)

The Raven's Perch #11 - TRADED
The Faces of Lost Souls #12 - TRADED
Beware the Boogieman in the Manhole #13 - TRADED

One card available

All cards created with the Shaving Cream Technique
Shaving Cream and Acrylic Paint on MatteBoard with collaged magazine images
Colors have a tendency to blend.
I used orange and yellow with a hint of black.

Card is very aromatic with a soapy/minty fragrance from the shaving cream.
The fragrance does dissipate, but if you are alergic to perfume, please do not ask to trade for this card.

Holy hell, what happened while I was away?!? You all ROCK!

I made one little card last night (finished it today) - the outlines were drawn in the café when I didn't have many supplies with me, so I took a pen I thought might be waterproof... it wasn't really. BUT I like the effect - makes for a nice washed-out kind of look that fits autumn, I think. :)

Autumn Kitty, made with brown Stabilo pointVisco pen, watercolours and a couple gel pens for the kitty.
Traded, thank you!!

Also, this is for the Autumn Colours challenge!
