This is the official thread for the Summer Solstice A-thon.

Starting time: June 20, Friday (Whatever TIME you want to start!)
Ending time: June 23, Monday (Whatever TIME you want to end!)

Hosts: Vampiress_Rose, KESagers, Just Ducky

This is an ATART (all types of art a-thon) and this is open to everyone.

What we can do: ANYTHING! ATC’s, chunky pages, post cards, inchies, twinchies, rinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rolos, gothic arches, – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create!

All Media Welcome: Drawing, Painting, Collaging, Sewing, Photography, Digital Art, whatever your heart desires!

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

What is an A-TART?

It’s an All Types of ART marathon where you can create art together, post to thread, and trade! (AKA Crazy Ladies Crafting!)

How to Play:

Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your A-Thon gallery and post to the thread (if you desire). Trading and chatting are going on all the time.
After your card is traded, please move it to the Traded Gallery (ATC or mail art appropriate). After A-Thon, if you have cards still available, please move them to the available gallery and OUT of the A-Thon gallery.

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.

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.

OPTIONAL THEMES:

1. Friday - Sunshine! Summer Solstice is the mark of beginning of summer for some traditions, or the longest day of the year in most traditions. Celebrate with sunshine!

2. Saturday - Patriotic! Celebrate your country. There are a lot of Independence Days and Patriotic Holidays occurring worldwide over the summer. Show your pride!

3. Ice Cream Vs. Hot Chocolate - By popular demand! If it's cold in your area, and you want some hot chocolate, draw us a cup to share! If it's hot in your area, and you want to cool down with some ice cream, share that too! <3 We want to enjoy your sweets as well, and we will probably even want to trade for it!

4. Something SPOOKY! - Evil spirits were said to lurk about on the magical night of the summer solstice. St. John’s wort, an aromatic ancient herb that smells like turpentine or balsam was used to ward off witches and evil spirits. Circlets were fashioned from stems of St. John’s wort and worn on the head. Farmers wreathed livestock with circles of St. John’s wort. Bouquets of the herb were placed in the home, on the doorstep and over the door to prevent evil from entering the home.


Above all, Have Fun! Remeber the above themes are just suggestions, you do NOT have to make a card, but if you do, please share!

Yay! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with! I have some housework to do... Poo... Then I'm probably going to get caught up on some cards that I OWE before I start anything else. But everyone else, feel free to start a day early if you like! If it's still the 19th where you are ;)

BekaH

Deanna, I'll jot that down and see what I can do for you ;) I TOO love orange tiger lilies, they're soooo pretty!

Can we add my brain to this discussion ladies? lol! I'm only 26, but I think I'm losing it! HA. This morning, I forgot that someone had asked for a card from me. I remembered someone asking but couldn't remember who it was. Not to worry, she had forgotten also... But THAT was the first sign! The second sign, I didn't know it was time for the a-thon! WTH?! Time just got away from me! Then, I was cleaning my house and had picked up my little one's play doh she was playing with... Couldn't recall where I had put it... But, I found it when I started doing dishes, and it was in the sink!!!!!

I'm really losing it..... :/

It's already 20th Jun, 9.02 here in Singapore.
All occasion cards:-
4x6 cards with Origami 8-pc paper flower and crane/bird.
3x2 tag with Origami 8-pc paper flower albeit smaller.
Both has a tiny bling-bling in the center of the flower.

NOT FOR TRADE. as these are made for sales in July Mini Maker Faire.
My scanner did no justice to the colors. They are much nicer in RL.

Ducky! You made it! Yes, you and Ducky better get that craft room together so you can art with us! You ARE co host, after all, LOL :P

Btw, I totally pulled your stunt! Even after you noted that the a-thon was coming up so soon, time totally got away from me!... Earlier today Donna asked on the pre thread if there was an official thread yet. Of course at the time there wasn't! I looked at my calendar and was like "Ahhh! It's the 19th!" Lol! Somewhere in the back of my mind I KNEW that the A-thon was this weekend, I just didn't figure how close this weekend was! LOL. I had to scramble to get this up.

I'm busy drawing, I've only got three cards done so far but I'm quite proud of em!

Hope to see more people posting more art! Here's my next one, "Pippy Puffin" (I LOVE puffins, they are so stinkin adorable!)

Wow, great start already!!! Hope to play at least a bit - Im not feeling very well at the moment, hope this darn headaches will go away soon. :(

BekaH
06-20-2014, 01:56 AM
Awww I do hope you start feeling better Evalila! I know the feeling with the headaches... I have a drs appt Monday, I've been having awful headaches for about a week now. They come on about the same time every day. It's either cluster headaches (Ow!) or more than likely, a sinus infection (AGAIN!) because my teeth have been hurting too :( But thankfully it's not so bad for me not to craft! LOL. I said I stopped after my puffin... But... I made three oil pastel / gel pen cards after that! LOL. Now it really is bed time because I'm super sleepy! LOL. Maybe tomorrow I'll get some collage cards done. I just didn't have the motivation for that tonight. Was in more of a drawing mood, lol.

1. TRADED Pretty Flower - The card is not uneven, I just had to take the photo at an angle so the gloss mod podge wouldn't cast a glare!

2. Just a Pretty - I applied the mod podge in a way that made the card sort of textured. Neat effect.

3. TRADED Shine.

Beautiful cards, Beka! Hope you feel better soon, too :)

Good Morning Everyone!
Some great art already showing up in this thread!
I will see what I can come up with this morning. I have an appt later this afternoon. I won't be able to play much on Saturday because it is my mother's 80th birthday and we're having a big wing ding for her. Her birthday is actually today. Lots of folks will be showing up for that. Should be a rousing good time! I'll play as much as time allows. I have another appt on Sunday morning with the insurance adjuster. Not sure how long that will take. He's coming round the ol' homestead to look at last weekend's storm damage.

Vrose, I LOVE the frog chunky! He'll make a wonderful addition to my frog book! Thanks!

Gonna get some coffee in me, wake up a bit and see what the muse has in store.

What a strong start - so much great art already! Morning everyone! Or good evening depending on where you are! ;) I set aside today for a lot of play but I need to catch a morning nap first and then you'll see a lot of me. (I hope my muse co-operates.) Got some backgrounds printed yesterday and they are dry and ready to be mounted and cut today. I'm looking forward to all of the art that we create. :)

I spent the morning finishing up some art commitments and started on some fishes I'll put up for trade later today. It's going to be some hours before the fishes are done. I have an appt this afternoon in town and will get back to art once I get back home. I have to make something to take to Ma's birthday party tomorrow. My sister said, "Bring some jello." Ok, that sounds easy enough! Means a trip to the grocery store while I'm in town though.

You all are showing off some great art! I'll have something to show before the day is out!

BekaH
06-20-2014, 12:53 PM
Oh jello, easy peasy lol. I hope your mom has a terrific birthday!!! That's definitely something to celebrate :-)

Hello everyone! Lovely art being posted!

Just stopped in as I haven't had much of a chane on-site lately, and stumbled upon this. I haven't had the energy to do much art lately due to the little one I'm expecting, but here's hoping I have some time to play and knock the cobwebs out of my brain. Missed you all!

Hi everyone!!! As my Aunty would say, "I am all behind like the cow's tail", (if you stop and think about it a second it will make sense) I have a couple of questions as this is my first official a-thon ever....can I post some backgrounds that I already had done??? They are extras from the "Torn Text Background" swap that NancyL just finished up with. Kinda got carried away and made like 20 of them............... And just in general, do they have to be "hot off the presses" or can they be from my stash???? I suppose either of them could be contenders for the "dumb question of the week" award.............. :embarrassed: Anyway, here I am in all me glory............ :err:

Suze
06-20-2014, 04:40 PM
oh! lovely art everyone! I'm working on some cards, almost finished. Had to pop in here and cheer you all on.....Athon Nuts One and All!

Suze
06-20-2014, 04:47 PM
Della, I'm the last one to give advice on cards...partly done, almost done, done , etc. ....as I am old and brain is slow.
BUT if I remember correctly, its kinda like the army (used to be) "don't ask, don't tell"....just "show and trade"..............I don't think the army did the last one. yikes.

Athoners are very very sweet and great enabler's .......





(right?) (can I get a "amen")

BekaH
06-20-2014, 04:48 PM
Oh della, not at all. Gently, we only post stuff that we've made during the allotted time frame for the a-thon. But if you'd like to post a LINK so that we can view the others, I don't.have an issue with that :-) would LOVE to see your backgrounds :-) also, warm welcome to you and suze!!! Can't wait to see what you ladies have up your sleeves. Obviously, my nap time is NOT going so well. Lol

Della
06-20-2014, 05:19 PM
Ok, a link it is....I guess the fact that I JUST scanned them doesn't count, does it?? :err: Well, then, I will just have to admit to the a-thon universe that these have been finished and on my work table for a good 2 weeks AT LEAST, but here's the link so you can see if you like my first attempt at doing torn text backgrounds..... hope so!!

Della - V Rose is right on and your link is excellent. I'll add that you can go ahead and use backgrounds that you already have in your stash for this marathon and make some ATCs that we can trade. :yes: Cuz those backgrounds are wonderful!

I gotta go make supper but I'll be back to answer PMs afterwards!

Oh nice Sarat!

BekaH
06-20-2014, 05:54 PM
Oh yes, thanks Kristen! Yes, Della you can definitely USE those backgrounds if you wish! They are lovely! Many people DO prepare their backgrounds ahead of time ;) I LOVE those backgrounds! Very good job indeed!

Guys, I feel like a bit of a let down today... I've only done four cards so far :( I just haven't had the best day... health wise.... I think I've got a sinus infection or something, been having headaches for a week now and with that, tooth pain (All teeth not just one), and a feeling of pressure/fullness in my head. I have a drs appt scheduled Monday. (So that will cut short my creating time Monday, boo! Dr's appt for self in morning and for daughter in evening!) But add to that my anxiety... And I've just felt crappy today.

Hopefully you all will forgive me though and hope that it's quality that counts! Not quantity ;)

Anyways, artchick, you're on a roll, for this to be your first ever a-thon! Woot woot!

Sarat, you're quite welcome for reminder, happy to have you on board :) I LOVE those beeswax cards so I'm sure I'll LOVE whatever you made for me for the PIF as well!

I hope to get a few more cards done today at least, I have a feeling tonight is going to be an early bed time night!

HUGS all, and please keep me in prayers/thoughts/wishes, whatever you do!

ONLY 4 cards?????
I made four cards today and I am as proud as can be!
I never made 4 cards on one evening- I guess I am really slow...:err:

Suze
06-20-2014, 06:37 PM
oh, dear, I'm in trouble. already.
(Della, glad that V,Rose and Kes told it true. I knew we could do backgrounds, and I think I remember being in athon's where we could have stuff ready to assemble , but the actual card had to be made during athon time. )
Course, them there athons had lots of Bailey's and chocolate and other "spirits" to drink.
gals was just a'passing the drinks all around and I don't mean apple juice. :huh:;):jiggy:

06-20-2014, 06:39 PM
4 cards is a lot! Any cards that get done, are plenty. The important thing is, are you having fun making them? :)

Suze
06-20-2014, 06:42 PM
oh, I forgot......V.Rose, hope you feel better soon. I think its great that you made four cards already...
(have you tried "steaming" for your sinus pain and pressure?..it sometimes works for me when I get that crud.)

Sarah's Mom - your cards are great - everyone go take a look! :)

Lorali - my favorite is the patriotic starburst! and yes - thank goodness the Peonies survived!

Suze - you got it right - all prep is good but the final assembly must be during the marathon.

V Rose - Take care of yourself! You are rocking this marathon in spite of how you are feeling. I don't go very fast any more most of the time now so I tend to create sets of cards and not very many of them. We all work at our own pace. I'm happy to trade with anyone who sees something they like or I'll hold something also. Now I'm starting to fade but I have a set of cards half started so I'm going to try to go finish them. :v_spin:

The day got away from me and I didn't get my fishes done. It was hotter than hot in the kitchen to do anything in there after noon rolled around. I took a tried to take a nap but Fred dog wasn't having any of that. I had to play butler every fifteen minutes it seemed. In and out all day, that dog was. I did get the fishes well started though and will finish them tomorrow evening. Here's a picture to show there really are some fishes in the works. They are made from TP tubes.

And I painted an envelope that I will trade for another altered envelope. I will either fill the envelope with flat paper goodies or leave it empty...choice will be the traders. It doesn't matter to me. Altered envelopes can be sent either way.


You all been on fire with the art today! So many things I'd like to trade for. Tomorrow is a limited art day as I'll be away from home most of the afternoon.

Keep up the great work everyone! Welcome to all the new athoners!

Lots of art going on here in this thread thats for sure. I thought I'd do more than just one card today but that is all I've managed. Just felt really tired most of the day. Oh well, maybe tomorrow more art will come from me. I have several ideas. Here is today's card. The sentiment is from a fortune cookie. I can't decide if I like it or not so it is stuck on with a light/removable type glue.

Turns out I had another two cards left in me before bed after all. Evalila's seahorse made me want to do a seahorse also. Mine is not as realistic looking as her's though. In fact it looks a lot like the other seahorses I've done. This time my little guy has found some special algae that has heart shaped flowers and he is decorating his tail fins with it.

Good afternoon people! Lots to catch up on, but here are some of my work on the Arts Festival project of 'Found Text'.
Pages from my 'Book'

Half face, hand drawn. Found text on the face, circled with pencil. Crayon to cover the background text. Glazed on red lips.

Found text 'a cowed population is easier to control' : blade-cut tree, overlapped by blade-cut silhouette, tied with thread, to implied 'chained'/'slavery'.

Blade-cut man w brollly (from KES) on text background. Following page has text completing the road the man is standing on. (No pic. Did it at the workshop this morning)

Blade-cut tree w collage of a face. Found text: no signs, demoralized.

Origami fold of a Bird which opens to reveal more text underneath, highlighted in green.

I adore everyone's art! It's 11:39 am here, and I'm still sleepy... Ugh. Tried to go to sleep at 12, laid down with little one at 12... but we didn't get to sleep til between 1:30 and 2... And then I woke up at 9:30ish am and just couldn't fall back asleep, although I laid in bed with the little one til 11.... :/ I hate my sleep pattern.

So I'm thinking today, I'm having my morning coffee right now, then I need to shower. Hopefully after that I'll be feeling a bit more awake. It's rainy outside today, which we NEED, but it makes me even more sleepy :( Can't win for losing, lol! Hope after my shower to draw a few cards... As I owe Deanna a tree frog and a tiger lilly :P And I want to draw more today too.

Here are a few collage cards I came up with last night :)

P.S. I'm going to go through now and give everyone I Rock's. because the art ROCKS!

P.S.S Sorry for having to take the photos of the collage cards at an angle, but the best lighting is with flash but the flash makes a glare on the cards if I don't hold them JUST RIGHT!

1. "Luck" TRADED
2. "Ladybug Fairy" TRADED
3. "Panda Love"
4. "Smell the Roses" TRADED
5. "Victorian Wedding" TRADED

All will be posted in a-thon gallery as well!

THANKS SO MUCH.. I had a fun day with my son, daughter, hubby brother and a few others. We went to Greenwood Lake, NY. We ate outside by the lake and had a great time. Best of all, to be with family and friends. I haven't been doing well lately and to be with those I love was great.

Enough, maybe a card or to tonight. I would love to trade. Hi to everyone.

Just checking in with everyone, going to make banana bread and then some more cards, so later on I will be posting some more. Just one card left of the original 3 that I posted if anyone wants to hop over to my gallery. It is "Are We There Yet?" with the clock and the old gas pump. So glad to hear that Sharlene had a SPLENDIFOROUS time on her big day!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH they all turned out well Vampires Rose! I love the froggie too!

I got my stamped images colored tonight. I have some images to cut out tomorrow morning. Have an idea for some note cards - not the usual thing we trade but I think I'm going to give it a try. Looking forward to seeing what everyone is working on. Have a great night - off to bed for me. :sleep:

I just want to let everybody know that I have made 18 ATCs so far for this a-thon. I still have soooo many ideas but I know that if I had not taken Part in this I would have never made them. Thank you for the chance to exorcise those demon that never let me sleep until an ATC is done Or a journal page is completed. I feel free to create here and sooo welcome. I feel like I have returned home, but never knew AFA before. I see RAK everywhere here, in every post, in ver kind word and honest relationships. Anybody can see that here people are more than swap partners, they are friends and they want their friends to have their best attempt, even if it doesn't really end up they way we wanted. Again, that's for welcoming me here so warmly... Well, only a marathon like that to make me say this! Back to my ATCs because my Jars are gone!!!! :) and I have people to message and ATCs to finish! Come on people!

Thanks! (Jokes aside...)
