April Fool's Day Inchie Athon and ATART Official Thread

SO HAPPY YOU CAME TO PLAY!

Start time (in AUCKLAND, NZ time zone - GMT+12) 12:01 am (midnight) on Tuesday morning April 1, 2014, and end time (in Hawaii's time zone - GMT -8) 11:59 pm (midnight) Monday April 7, 2014.

Your Hosts for this weekend are donnacr and Jean

This week we will create:
1a) INCHIES 1"X1” Mail Art. In any medium: collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting, using postage stamps, creating Found Poetry... you name it but all in a 1” space!
1b) MOOS 1" X 2 3/4" Mail art. In any medium as above.

1c) INCHIE/MOO HOUSES
NEW TO INCHIE OR MOO HOUSES?
Inchie House:
*The base of each is one inchie (1x1)
*For the roof, use an inchie, cut in half on the diagonal
* Overlap the inchie behind the roof until the top corners of the inchie almost touch the diagonal edges of the roof (a gluestick works fine for adhering). I found it helpful to glue my roof to the inchie first, and then decorate so the design doesn't get covered in the overlap.
* Final height is about 1 and 1/2 inch from base to top of roof.

Moo houses use inchie house rooftops (an inchie cut on the diag)

Inchie houses have a base 1x1 inch, or 2.5 cm square.
Moo houses have a base that is 1x2.75 inches or 2.5x7 cm. Thank you, Artistically, for the metric measures!
Jean's how-to article for Inchie/moo houses (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=26541)

1d) INCHIE BOOKS there are a variety of ways to make these.
A) make 6 Inchies, stick them back to back (giving you 3 double thickness Inchies), then punch holes either in the side or the top and join them with split pins some of Kira Nichols Inchie books (http://www.oopsicraftmypants.com/2010/04/another-teeny-inchies-book.html)
B) make 6 Inchies, cut a piece of thick paper or thin card 9" x1.5" and crease at 1.5" intervals (giving you 6 sections). stick an Inchie in the centre of each section, then fold like an accordion Inchie accordion books without covers (http://xa.yimg.com/kq/groups/22194992/sn/1170914051/name/inchies.jpg)
C) for a slightly fancier finish to B), make 2x 2" square 'covers' and stick on the front and back of your accordion Inchie accordion book with covers (http://inchiearts.typepad.com/.a/6a00e54fbcf46888340105359a3f11970b-400wi)

1e) TWINCHIES, and any other 'forgotten' size or shape - circle Inchies or Twinchies, etc.


2) Post your Awesome Creations here in the thread and to the AThon Gallery to share with the group.

3) Trade art (if you want to) or just share your creations in a post. (just a general fyi, typically Inchies are traded in groups of 4 or 6 but you can trade Inchies anyway that you agree upon with the other party).

4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)

5) Have awesome, ridiculous amounts of FUN!

OPTIONAL CHALLENGES/THEMES FOR THE WEEK:
Tuesday: show jesters OR make something that is a joke - in all the wrong colours, bits of animals/things joined together that shouldn't be, etc
Wednesday: build your series around flora (plants) OR fauna (animals) OR fish/ marine creatures
Thursday: use an unusual medium eg tea/ coffee OR use tea/ coffee as your theme
Friday: build each Inchie/Moo on 1 word or letter OR make a series based on 1 colour
Saturday: faces OR hearts
Sunday: whimsical houses OR Inchie/Moo houses
Monday: silhouettes on bright backgrounds OR April showers - rain, umbrellas, clouds, etc

Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE. You do not have to sign up.
Challenges and themes are ENTIRELY optional. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

What is an Inchie (Please be careful with your sizing if you don't have a 1" square Punch)
Inchies are collectible 1 x 1 inches of art in any media from traditional to altered art collage to fabric to polymer clay and so on.

Just a quick note. Typically inchies are traded in groups of 4 or 6 but you are free to make agreed upon trades for any number of inchies as long as both parties are happy.

After you trade your Inchies they should be moved from the Athon gallery to Traded Mail Art (So only available Athon cards are in the Athon gallery.)

Here's the "fine print"

What IS an ART-A-THON?
It’s a marathon create-your-favourite-art week.
It’s kind of like we were all together for the week 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 week. Trading and chatting ensues. At 11:59 on Monday April 7 (Hawaii time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to chat and trade as long as you like.

HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: - When you find a piece of art 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 and they may be missed.

Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to mail it 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 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.



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

You can find your GMT time at the very bottom of every page. Mine, in Indonesia, is GMT+8.
This means that start time is 4 hours AHEAD of my midnight so I can start at 8.01pm local time on Monday (today).
I will definitely be awake then so I will do a countdown for everyone to start.

LET THE FUN BEGIN!!:jiggy::jiggy:

Its been a long long time since i last crafted here, hope that i don't scare the natives ! Might be exciting posting my pics as the last time i tried my camera took too high a quality and i just couldn't work out how to downsize! Now i am using an ipad so its all different again!
So stand back this could get nasty!!

HUH? LOL

Let's see if I can make heads or tails of what that means to me....

Mine says GST -7. Does that mean @ 7:00AM on the 1st of April is when I can start? Sorry, but it is all greek to me! LOL

Donnacr
03-31-2014, 07:49 AM
Tamrantula - the easy answer is. . . you start in 15 minutes!!

rhonda615 - there is no need to make a certain number of Inchies either for each challenge OR each day. You make what your Muse tells you to - put them in your Athon Gallery (if you have any trouble with this just ask) and wait for people to trade with you.

If your Muse only wants to make bigger pieces of work, don't worry about it! We will still be happy to see what you have made and probably trade for it.
The daily challenges are simply to get your creative juices flowing - suggestions ONLY, not requirements.

I will return shortly, hopefully with something to trade. 12 minutes to go!!

Those are gorgeous, mayaquilt.

I'm getting ready to begin. My goal is that I'm going to use that stuff that has been hanging around in those piles of art odds and ends and unfinished projects. I'm trying not to buy to many art supplies this year. That is making my hubby a happy guy.

Soooooo interested in joining this, but as a Newbie, I either have to run to the store & pray that I find a 1" square punch, measure them out & cut, or have an order of pre-sized inchies Fed-Ex'd to me ASAP!! Lol.....let's see what I can figure out!! :)

Hi Rhonda, I am no expert, but I make inchies with my fiskars "slide" cutter (I can't remember it's real name, lol). I use either the regular paper I'd use to cut ATCs (watercolor, bristol) or cereal boxes, etc. Hope that helps!

Here are my first sets. I thought that I would see what I could do for Jokers so I looked at every set of cards that we own, scanned the various Jokers and resized them to make Inchies and Twinchies. The Inchies will trade as you see them, the Twinchies can be mixed and matched

mayaquilt - you are on fire! I love what you are making - sending a PM for your birds.
Dehh68 - those tangled Inchies are beautiful - have to see if I can make some to trade.

I'm off to bed now (before I turn into a pumpkin :D) - can't wait to see what everyone has made while I sleep. Goodnight.

Wonderful inchies to start the marathon!

I had hoped to play but this week has taken an unexpected turn. Hopefully I can still play a little but I will definitely be lurking. ;)

Wow--I thought I had another whole day to prepare! LOL. It is only a bit after noon on the 31st here. Not sure how much I will contribute today, as I planned to do some cleaning, etc today so I wouldn't feel guilty while creating starting tomorrow. Prepared the kids yesterday to be helpful today--so, I gotta follow through on that. Sigh! LOL

Beautiful work already popping up!

03-31-2014, 04:43 PM
a last set for today, 4 fabric inchies made from the same leftover artquilt as the ornaments.

My first...miserable photos, apologies. They're not as washed out as they appear, and the white bits don't show up well in the vineflower set.

Set 1: Vineflowers (morning glory, clematis, rosa de montana) traded

Set 2: Daisies - can't turn loose of these yet; these are tributes to Mama, whom we lost on the 28th. I'll be doing lots of daisies, and after I do, I'll be able to trade them. Just, not yet.

Planning to play here and there -the week as time allows between work and snuggling my little jellybean. We will see what I can manage this evening.

I'd love to trade lots and send and receive some yummy envelopes of art ... sure makes trips to the mailbox fun!

Jean
04-01-2014, 02:16 PM
I like this: mount sets onto a card, whether they are 2/3/4/6 inches... that way we'll know how many to trade for the set!

FYI for trading purposes:
Type of art / number of inches of art in each one
inchie = 1
inchie house = 1 1/2
inchie-and-a-half = 2.25
moo = 2
twinchie = 4
atc = ~9

I just put some crystal lacquer on them.

I sometimes use Americana DuraClear Satin Varnish....or the Gloss Varnish. Really makes the colors pop!,....but....word of warning....very hard to photo them as they shine reflectively the flash! (I use these on my finished acrylic paints ALL the time because they are "non-yellowing"! :)

FINALLY! I think this swap triggered a long suppressed memory! LOL

I have been trying to figure out where in the heck my big bag of all kinds of punches--including my Creative Memories 1 inch square punch--could be. I searched and searched--on and off for the past year or so.
I have been dreading having to cut 1 inch squares for this a-thon...and was thinking I was just going to do "other" art.

BUT, I woke up this morning, remembering that a long time ago, I had emptied that bag of punches into a couple dresser drawers! Woot! I spent a short time moving all the junk out of the way that had been accumulating in front of the dresser drawers..and voila! I found my punches!

Yay!! LOL

OK--so, I get excited about the little things...but, I really have been trying to remember where those darn punches were for the longest time! Last October, I worked at a camp doing crafts and searched everywhere for them.

NOW, to find some good paper to punch and start working on the little bitty things. Not sure I will get many done, but this athon is already a success in my book!

Where I found my square punch, I also found my circle punch, and was considering making some of those. We used to call them Rinchies (round inchies). Not sure if they are still "a thing" or not, since I haven't been around for a while. I also have 1 inch in a few other shapes, was trying to figure out if I can use them or not. Will have to play around and see what happens! It will be as much a surprise to me as it will be to you! LOL

PM me if you want to trade. YOU KNOW I LOVE TO TRADE SO DON'T BE SHY! JUST ASK. The worst thing that could happen is that someone else pm'ed me for them first. I won't turn down a request for a trade!

23. Six Inchies 141852

24. Six Inchies 141853

25. Six Inchies 141854

26. Six Inchies 141855 TRADED

27. ATC - strange one -Gelli print base, Vellum paper waves with fish in between them... hard to take a photo of, sorry 141856

*If this is cool, this is how I prefer to do this.
If they are on a card - they are a "set" trade.

These are all equal value to me [6 inchies] [1 ATC] [2 Moos] [2 Twinchies]
Anything else we can figure out.... but this will give you an idea of my expectations for trades.

04-01-2014, 11:14 PM

*staggering in under huge cake afire* Happy birthday, Mayaquilt! Hope this is the beginning of your best year yet! Somebody get the fire extinguisher...

Tammy...I'd say use all your one-inch hole punches and art 'em up! You know someone will want them, but we may not have fancy inch punches to trade. I only have round and square, personally.

Oohlala, now you know I'm gonna have to do moo houses! *making notes*

Dawgie dear, she said crop circle stamps, so I imagine rubber stamps rather than crop circle punches? Maybe embossers? (And I love your inchies!)

As for you, Miss Ducky, I suspect your muse is playing a March April Fools' joke on you...she's coming in like a lamb and will go out with a ROAR!

I'm here, if that helps any! LOL

It is a little after midnight here, and I have been working on pre-creating these little inchies. I am waiting for the hubby to head off to bed, so I don't feel too guilty abandoning him for my art space in the basement. I am just hoping that one of the kids didn't decide to sleep in the spare bed, which is in the same space. They do that as often as they don't, so it will be the luck of the draw when I finally get down there, to see if I can actually work on these! LOL. Such is the life of a mom, right?

I have missed so much great art today!!!! So many gorgeous pieces that are already traded. I have a lot of catching up to do!!!

A friend called first thing this morning and told me to run to the grocery store. SweetBay Grocery was bought out by Winn Dixie which was bought out by BiLo I guess.... who knows.... I got milk for 99 cents a gallon... it freezes, 30 eggs for $1.25...eggs can be frozen to and it is PYSANKY time.... all the bakery and produce and meat was 50 to 75% off. Needless to say, I bought a bunch of stuff.... 2 carts full....240 eggs for pysanky!!!!!!!

Okay.... here, finally is what I did last night...


PM me if you want to trade. YOU KNOW I LOVE TO TRADE SO DON'T BE SHY! JUST ASK. The worst thing that could happen is that someone else pm'ed me for them first. I won't turn down a request for a trade!

So cool to see some hexies - I have some blanks cut out as well!

Today I made an eclectic mix of stuff... since I can never force my muse into a format/size/theme/anything at all, I can never make any of these convenient sets of 6 inchies or so. ;)
Will post my 1 ATC, three inchies and four moos (a set of three and a single one, of course ;) ) tomorrow, off to bed now!

Goodnight! :wubclub:

I'm late to the party, but I'm here now! I've been itching to do some 'little art' for days now! I forgot about this athon when I ran away from home last Thursday and forgot to take any blanks with me to my son's house. I attempted to work on a paper basket while there, but that didn't work out too well....too many distractions from my grandchildren, especially the four year old! I gave up on my own projects and concentrated on Annie's plans instead.
I'm home now though so let the art commence! I see you all have been beautifully busy in that department. I have some catching up to do! Looks like it's going to be a late night for me. I'll be back in a bit with something to share.
You all do amaze me with all the talent in this group! Beautiful work everyone!

I cheated on these sets of inchies. Back in 2009 I made just shy of 1000 inchies. I made inchie books out of a few of them. The others have never been shown to anyone. I'm offering them here for the first time. They've been tucked away in a box on my desk for all this time. I was sitting here drawing the clowns and it dawned on me that those inchies were still around and now seemed like a great time to put them up for trade. I am in hopes no one minds getting old inchies. If I'm out of line, speak up!
I drew four of the clowns and one of the chickens since the last post in this thread.

Good Morning (Afternoon, Evening)....I'm still awake at a quarter to seven in the morning. I took a break from art to download 15 cds to my music files. My sister sent her new iPod home with me to fill it up with music for her cause she's terrified of her computer. She swears she doesn't know how to run the darn thing. I got the cds from her as well. I'm not done with her iPod yet but art called!

I've dug into the old inchies again and also drew some of these this morning that I'm sharing now. I drew one of the trees today, one of the flowers, three of the landscapes and all of the summer inchies today.

I'm willing to trade these for whatever floats your boat. Just shoot me off a pm and I'll get back with you sometime this evening when I wake up from my long nap. It's time to get some sleep. I've been awake for 25 hours! The old eyeballs say they've had it for now!
Happy arting today!

Okay, now first off ---great art everyone!!!!!! I am feeling a little Frankensteinish today.... So a few of you got my ...must have....inchies....must have:err: messages a few minutes ago! Some of you will be getting them later....


And I hear that there is CHEATING going on here!!!!
OLD INCHIES?!?!?!
Great!!!!! Bring 'em on!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to see them --- but you have to post all 1,000 and if you have already traded some you have to make enough to make it up to 1,000!!!!

I want to thank whoever stole my geisha inchie from Tamrantula-- Didn't you know I wanted it!! Deep Sigh.... PEOPLE!!!

Jonquil --- WELCOME!!! Happy Moving!!!!

And finally, TRUDY you are on my LIST!!!!! YOU ARE IN TROUBLE. YOU ARE A TROUBLE MAKER AND I AM GOING TO GET YOU FOR IT!!!!
- You see, Trudy wanted my set #53, but LindaLee had already ask for it. Now the inchie set would have been easy to duplicate, but, I had no more of the alcohol ink paper and that paper I used was actually not paper I made, it was a scrap of paper that someone who is in this athon sent me, I think.... It was a small scrap of paper and some little flowers & stars cut out of it- I thought I saw someone on here using that punch. Anyway, BECAUSE Trudy wanted it [and I heard it through the grapevine that what Trudy WANTS, Trudy GETS, or ELSE -and I didn't want to find out what the or ELSE was] I got this strange urge to duplicate #53 inchie pair and got out the alcohol inks....

Easy to duplicate IF I had anymore of that paper I had made, but that's why I made 2 inchies, it was the last I had... So, I decided to play with alcohol inks this morning and did 3 sheets of photograph paper, kept going, and experimented!!! I did vellum paper, envelopes, beads, wax paper, the hard acetate paper from the packages with stickers/stamps & old recipes.

The old recipes are the ones from the plastic boxes people use to subscribe to and get the box and dividers free and then paid $4.99 for 25 new recipes every month or whatever, I have a bunch I bought 'cuz I liked the box-perfect size for postcards- and need more recipe cards like a hole in the head. They are about 5 x7 and glossy... I used the alcohol ink on them WITHOUT using a blending solution first... that made it dark enough to cover the pictures and print. Then let it dry and went over it with more alcohol ink, the gold or silver ink too and the blending solution. I just did 3 cards but got 3 ATC blanks, 2 moos & 2 inchies out of each one. They came out great and I edged them with the Big Marvy Metallic Markers, one set each in blue, purple & green. I am going to post some of it as I just had so much fun playing.

And I am going to share pictures of my experimenting....

but first ...

#55 For Trudy's approval.... 141977

Recipe card before... 141978

Recipe card after... 141979

means I don't have to spend money on glossy cardstock or photopaper anymore!

What I made from the photo paper... 141980

What I made from the 3 recipe cards... 141981 each recipe card gave me 3 ATCs, 2 inchies and 2 moos.....

..... now, off to art some more!

Hi, kids:

I am so late to the party! I have never made inchies, as I couldn't figure out how to display them effectively. But the ideas posted about arranging them on an ATC-sized card have been really helpful, so I'll probably go for it.

In the meantime, I have some new ATCs.

Here's what I have until now:

142002
one ATC, kind-of Vintage/steampunky with real gears that you can actually turn - I mean, they both move together! (Do you know what I mean? They work! :biglaugh: )

142003
a set of four whimsical bird inchies, "drawn" on scratch paper TRADED (wowzy, that was fast!)

142004
a set of three moos, with fairies on a background I made with my brand-new Distress inks and my brand-new stencil! :D

142005
a single HD/hand-coloured moo with, drumroll, another fairy. ;) The wings and the aura of the gem are sparkling with holo-glitter nail varnish.
also, a set of three inchies with hand-made paper background (made from a friend's rubbish - she wanted to throw the paper away after she punched pieces out of it, but there was enough left for inchies. ;) ) and glitter stickers.

142006
and two hexies (they have the same surface size as twinchies), with washi-tape background (that got a white wash with my brand-new Picket Fence Distress Stain... can you tell I was shopping? :biglaugh: ) and two very different ladies on them. :)



I would love to trade them all, and I'm open to all kinds of calculations and mathematical acrobatics... if you want a hexie, two moos and an inchie, we will find out how to trade them! ;)
Although I would like to trade the "obvious" sets (pink inchies, scratch paper inchies, three fairies) as sets, I can split them as well if you prefer that. :)

Home from a clothes shopping trip with 2 teenage boys! Always a challenge.

Anyway, we have company tonight so I am not sure how much I will get done today. I have to mark down the trades I have made, but it will have to wait a little bit.

Everyone have fun! Beautiful art here by everyone. Glad to be part of it!

You all were cranking out the art while I studied the inside of my eyelids for a few hours! Now to get busy and ask for some trades for some of that incredible artwork.....

I told you all I had made some little books out of some of the old inchies. I have looked everywhere I can think of and could not locate those anywhere! I was going to offer some of those up for trade. Doesn't look like that will happen though.
Also doesn't look like Vdog is going to get her wish that I come up with 1000 inchies before this is all over! It's a fun thought but it isn't gonna happen either!

I'll be back soon with something to share. Need to drag out the markers and the blanks and see how many sets I can put together with what I have to work with. I think some twinchies and moos are in order from this camp too!

I'm off to answer PMs! Art on all!

Well, I was a bad, bad, REALLY bad girl! I snuck out on my company and spent money I really, REALLY shouldn't have spent....because I really, REALLY wanted to! LOL

When I went to make cards a couple days ago, I found all my StazOn stamp pads all dried out and useless...every last darn one of them!

So, I bought a black and a red...so, I can try stamping some cards. Also splurged on some blending solution so I can use my alcohol inks, a couple of those tiny colorbox ink pads for the edging, I got a new embossing stamp pad, so I can pull out some embossing....and even got another pad of watercolor paper. I spent my art budget for the year! LOL...even with the 20% off total purchase. Although I did see Michaels has a 50% off next week...so, will prob sneak back in for a new pair of Tim Holz scissors. I love mine, but they are missing in action at the moment!

Anyway--will be off and creating as soon as my company goes home and I don't feel guilty running downstairs to my art space.

See ya all around!

I'm back! this is what I was working on today...

V-Rose, where ever you are .... you will be happy.... I did the ATCs for your steampunk swap... viola! 142024

then... the stuff for the athon......

56. I made four similar MOOs... pick any one! 142025

Two ATCs made with bridge cards ontop of an ATC size card, someone sent me these with a trade. I punched 2 circles in the ATC size card so you can see that it is a playing card from the back. I played with the alcohol inks on top of these today and the numbers are distressed and covered with glossy accents.

57. 142026 58. 142027

59. A twinchie 142028


And where is the 6 inchie penis???? It will be coming up next....

Good Morning quiet ladies. Only one peep about my bad pun.... disappointing, I want some laughter in here. It HAS been traded - but I am making another two or three, similar, but different backgrounds as they are the gelli print & alcohol ink backgrounds and I cannot get them identical. So, if you have a warped sense of humor, I will send you one....

This morning I have been experimenting and as it usually goes, this experiment proved too costly to continue with. The math alone was making my brain smoke and the smell!!!! Unused burning brain is not a good air-freshner!

64. Experiment 142049

But, as it still came out pretty, and it was only a note card front, from one of y'all, I will still trade it.. BUT, It is really 2 ATCs with 12 inchies permanently glued on the front... and as I put little artistic work into it, but mathematically blew my brain up, I with trade both of these ATC for 1 ATC or 6 inches... If anyone wants it.

I was trying to not just cut the card into 6 (or 12) pieces, but also remove the "space" in between - so it was like a windowpane -- am I making any sense?

Those two subjects remind me of a joke... best told in person - but I will attempt it here......

Do you know why women are soooo bad at math?

No? Well it is because all our lives we are told that this much [holding thumb and forefinger apart about three inches] is six inches.

Any way.... Maya.... I am trying to be nice, but if no one lays claim to that ATC #31, I would love it... I am going to make a quilt for my bed out of your ATCs one of these days!

Off to look in the gallery, read the threads and leave YOU ROCKS! [when it will let me!]

And explain to me why this needle felter machine is needed? I saw something that looked like a sewing machine and something that looked like a cross between and industrial textile machine and a medieval torture rack.....Tell me all while I look at the art that was done today.... no less than 5 paragraphs, each paragraph at least 5 sentences.....Go!

I had been wanting a gelli plate to, but didn't want to pay the price for the large size, and I knew that's what I would end up wanting. THEN, I was reading the Tacoma Play Date thread, and LindyLu had shared about her homemade gelli plate she made after seeing a post by the Frugal Crafter (http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/2013/05/25/a-permanent-gelatin-printing-plate-hectograph-an-annoying-project-a-birthday-card/). COOL! ... THEN oddbreed made one and was super excited by how awesome it is... and she blogged about it HERE (http://aubreyoddbreed.blogspot.com/2014/03/homemade-gelli-plate-recipe-i-cant-tell.html) with the adjusted recipe, and you can see some of her fabulous prints too.

I highly recommend everyone check it out, because I MADE ONE TOO, and I LOVE IT!! :jiggy: True story.


I'm still trying to justify the purchase of a gelli print plate. I keep going back to look at them again .... big sigh ...... I shouldn't complain too much, cos in addition to some new stamps and papers, I bought ............... wait for it, wait for it ......... drum roll please ...... A NEEDLE FELTING MACHINE!!!! It's amazing ! I've been experimenting with all sorts of scraps, some with more success than others, and I now have lots and lots of mixed fabrics that are ATC size.

Okay folks... I can't go thru and trade for all the wonderful art I want to trade for. I am teaching a pysanky class tomorrow and I am not ready for it as I am a procrastinator. So I am going to bed now, Zane just brought me the computer, so i can say good night to all of you ... Tamratula... I want a snarky the one with something about making bad decisions, cuz there are so many choices... can pm anyone as I must sleep. I have to be up at 5am as Scraps of Art (where I am teaching the pysanky class at 1pm is having a "garage sale" I score big there and sell off some of my extras so it is a win win situation.... I did good at the last one.... So I will say goodnight and go to sleep and rush like heck to get it together in the morning!!

PS. YOU should see the ATCs I made tonight!!!!! I will show them tomorrow ...but they are for the graphic 45 swap!!!!! I used the birdsong (oriental) line and they came out lovely! I should have been getting ready for this darn garagesale thing and pysanky and I am making ATCs ... I love this site....

Thought I would join in :)

The scans on these inchies are MUCH darker than the actual cards. Not sure how to lighten them.

Ducky, you make me laugh.

Super inchies, twinchies, Twin-inch, ATCs and did I forget something. I can hardly keep up. I've thought about a gelli plate, but I have so much stuff, it should last me a lifetime. I've used supplies that mostly came from the piles on my art table. I've been trying watercolors, so I cut up a large watercolor experiment to make smaller backgrounds out of it.
