Here we go again! This time we are waiting for Christmas (or just the end of the year if you do not celebrate Christmas) and making art.

Starting time: now when you see this thread :) (officially when the day turns to Thursday but no need to wait)
Ending time: Sunday December 8th when the day ends

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 colors, etc)

And of course we can trade! This marathon is open to everyone and all kinds of art.

Some winter / Christmas examples

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.

NEW TO MARATHONS OR A-THONS? If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me or the co-hosts if you have questions. You can also post 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 (EASY TO READ) ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

And remember, even if the is officially pre-Christmas-a-thon, it doesn't mean that you couldn't make other art too. Everything that can be called as art is welcome :).

woo-hoo!!! we are off and ready to have some awesome arting fun!!!! - here is my first contribution to get us officially 'in the spirit' - will definitely be back later this evening though.

I think it is quite funny that I am making cards with snowmen etc on them - it is currently 30.4 degrees C here in Sydney about 87 degrees F and it got up to the equivalent of about 97 degrees F - definitely heading into summer here!!!

Yay! :D I was totally looking forward to this a-thon. I'll need the boost of our combined creative energy to draw a PIF card that I owe someone; RL struck and I asked for a little patience and my claimer was super sweet, but I really want to send this ASAP! Hate to be late with commitments. :arghh:

And after that, I want to do Christmas cards! :D

Hi everyone. What a great start to the marathon. It looks like a wild time will be in store for us. I have a few recipes for hot toddies and some mulled wine which I found in my recipe box. I haven't made them in years. Maybe this year. Some relaxation to is always a good thing.

Hi everyone! Great cards are being posted by you all. I'm not sure if I have time to make any this weekend, but I did pack a small amount of supplies with me when we left for a long weekend at our country cottage. We're almost at the end of the 2 hour drive as I write. There was a beautiful snowfall on the way but as we approach the seaside, it turned to rain. Let's hope the storm does not hit us too hard. I wish you all a great crafty weekend!

A "Snarkie" is a person making a witty (but sarcastic) remark - like the 3 lovely ladies that jonquil posted above.

Comments such as: "Kiss you under the Mistletoe -- I wouldn't kiss you under anesthetic"

Snarkies are fun, humorous, :biglaugh:

I said yesterday (perhaps? I'm so scatterbrained) that I need to do that overdue PIF card before I can play with you all - and I did finish it! Thanks everyone for sending your creative energy to me through this thread - I'm always so inspired when we play here. :wubclub:

If anyone's curious (and can view the adult art gallery), here's a naughty little geisha for the naughty ATC PIF: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=390567

Apart from that, I sewed (correct form?) two Copic pencil case roll thingies today (basically, a piece of fabric with elastic band attached that forms little places to stick my Copics into, and then I can roll it all up and fasten it with a piece of ribbon - love them and had too few!).

Now it's definitely time for bed, but I hope to play with you tomorrow! :wubclub:

Good Morning! The plans I thought I had fell through, so I have time in my Studio now! YAY! I'm planning on arting until the huzbee comes home from work, then my mom suggested that I come out to the Farm and do some crafting with her. So, this morning will be geared towards AFA, and later my family as we're starting a new tradition this year of a "Homemade" Christmas.

...and I haven't started yet....oops.

I should have some cards/ornaments to show off by the end of the day. ^^ SO excited that I actually get to play!!!!! :D

I've got 3 cards done and started working on a half-dozen owl ornaments.

I also came across a few mouse stamps and my Staz-on (which has been MIA since I moved a year ago...) I may have to tempt Mouseit, as I don't think we've traded yet. ^^

Going to scavenge breakfast and get back at it!

Thanks sanna, I just woke up. Hubby making my coffee, he usually does that in the morning. Art, art art, art. Beautiful as usual. I'll post 3 more in a little while. They dried over night.

I'm looking ahead to today to see all the great cards that will be posted. What a great group.

It rained all day yesterday. We needed rain. The reservoir near me was looking partly empty. Anyone have snow?

Good Morning everybody! Wow, great cards while I slept!

I have a few errands I need to run this am, but then I'm back to arting the rest of the day!

*lol* I'm here now! :) No idea where Evelyn is, though. :( Hope she gets here soon, too! :)

I come with two collage cards I made:
The main images (Santa and his reindeer(s?)) are from the same scrapbook paper, I just love the style! <3 And there's so much more... love the giant size! :D
There's lots of golden blingy embellishment stuff on both cards, and the papers all have glittery parts, so the photos are not the best. ^^°

Both are traded thanks a lot! :wubclub:

I just woke up from a nap, my stomach wasn't doing so hot. But the huzbee is home, and making me pizza rolls. So...I'll have a bit more time to play as that's happening. ^^

...Aside from my tether not supporting chat (typically - haven't tried it here though), I don't think I'd get anything done if I chilled in there.

Before I went down for a snooze, my mousies were prepared, so now I just have to put them together! Hopefully I'll have a few more before I head to the farm!

Alright, I'm packing up my stuff to head to the Farm. Its such a pain to try to figure out what to take, but crafting with Mom is just so worth it in the end! I'm taking a few supplies for ATC's with me, so I may get some more done, depending on how I'm doing with family stuff (or need a break).

I probably won't post any new artwork until tomorrow afternoon as I don't have access to the scanner, but I'll be popping my head in to see what everyone else is up to, (and answer PM's).

The fun thing is that I've got my huzbee involved...he's making Perler bead Video Game ornaments for our tree!

There are a bunch in my gallery too that I made before the athon started so you might want to look in there too! Now, I get to sit down and relax and look at everyone elses for a couple hours and then get back to work! I have a few chunkies I want to finish too!

Love these things! Y'all do some awesome work! Newbies don't be shy, ask to trade and I will!
