Welcome to the Marvelous March Collage-a-thon…

It’s open to everyone!

Start time (in your time zone – start when your clock says 5:00 pm) March 13 at 5:00 pm
End time (in your time zone) March 15, 2009 - 11:59 pm

WHAT’S A COLLAGE-A-THON? It’s a marathon collage weekend 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 collage ATC’s, and this thread is our play room.
It’s open to EVERYONE, and is open themed. The only requirement is that you have collaged somewhere on your ATC.

HOW IT WORKS: At 5:00 on March 13 (your time zone) you start to collage your ATC’s (prepping ahead of time is encouraged), then upload to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading ensues. At 11:59 on March 15 (your time zone) you’re done collaging… however trading may continue…


OPTIONAL THEME AND CHALLENGE: (key is it's optional!!)
Saturday Theme: Green – however you see green. Spring is almost here, St Patricks Day (if you celebrate it), ecologically conscious…

Sunday Challenge: Create ATC’s with TeXtuRe… such as using inks to create a texture look without actually having texture you can "feel", or using gesso or gel mediums and layers of paints textured with tools, or layers of papers or fibers to make texture. It’s pretty open as long as it has some texture and something collaged on it.


HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a card you must have, SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (pm) to that person asking for a trade. Please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread.

WANT TO COMPLIMENT AN ARTIST: And you will… consider clicking the You Rock button and leave it there.

LOVE TO CHATTER? Please feel free to chat among yourselves, however we do request you back it up with lots of posts with cards. It makes it hard for those with little time to play to easily find the eye candy and we want to make it as easy as possible for folks to trade.

HOW TO POST YOUR ART TO THE THREAD: (borrowed from goatgoddess and edited by Linda4atc, thank you!)
From your atcsforall.com gallery:
Go to your pic in your gallery click the picture to bring up the page where people leave comments
Right click on the pic to bring up the menu - click on properties at the bottom of the menu
this brings up another box with the info on your pic -
copy the address
go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard) paste the address into the window that pops up and and hit ok - that puts the code into your post for your pic to show up paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. I try to use medium ... find the word or letter s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

To make a picture loaded from the gallery smaller, you can change the last piece of the coded address. Notice the end of the code "w=l" (for large); you can change this after you paste it into your message to w=m (for medium) or w=s (for small).

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.forum/gallery/file.php?n=15391&w=l[/IMG

(leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)

NOTE: loading from your gallery is preferred by some of us because 1) your art is larger to see for those with bad vision, (2) we can look in your gallery to see everything that is available in one place (3) it is easier to mark cards "traded" in your gallery once there are pages and pages of cards in this wonderful thread.

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 pic 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:

So let’s get this collage-a-thon rolling!

A little bit less than 26 hours! This waiting makes me grazy :laugh:. I got some new embellishments today and I want to use them during this CAT. They are not green but who cares...

ohhhh I missed most of the last one (only 3 cards made) so hope to find time for this one :) need to clear off space on my work area - right now it's a foot deep with bits of this and that, torn papers, pens, glues and paints.

LOL poor duck, it'll be ok. Just relax and and let your muse take over. The hardest part is keeping all your pm's and trades straight. I always try to list both cards in my pm subject to help me keep track of the trades later on. A lot of the people write the username on the envy as soon as a trade is made and putting the atc inside then they save time later on getting the mail out. For me this doesn't work because I don't bother to add information on the back till later, if I'm really into the collaging.

Nataliee
03-12-2009, 07:46 PM
Well, here in NZ we are 3/4 hrs of Aussie, so guess who get to start first!!!! :D

Tonight I go to a 'crop till ya Drop' session - its where you do scrapbooking from 6pm -12am, but I do ATCs, my mom and I go together. The problem is, however, that one tends to do a lot more jabbering than art ... LoL :chatterbox:

sniisk
03-13-2009, 05:49 AM
Nataliee, maybe I should move to NZ =). I'd love to visit there.

Just two hours work and then a free weekend. And just 5 hours and I can start!

03-13-2009, 10:04 AM
I haven't done this before, but I need a jolt; so I'll be in. I may have other obligations for tomorrow, but I'll get something done. I loved the trading on the one stamp-a-thon I participated in. Stamps are okay here too as long as the card has collaged elements? Is a card that uses a transparency over a card background considered a collage?

HHC
03-13-2009, 10:07 AM
I do hope you find a bit of time to play. :yes:

egod
03-13-2009, 10:10 AM
What about the transparency question?

HHC
03-13-2009, 10:38 AM
egod,I missed your post :err:... going off to get tea while reading the thread is dangerous, I see. (note to self-hit refresh button)

A transparency is considered a piece of "collage". And any medium is okay as long as something is collaged on the card. I hope you find time to play. :)

03-13-2009, 10:39 AM
I'm off to work folks, back later this afternoon and will check in then. Have a wonderful day!

brrrr it was cold last night, I ran the generator most of the day yesterday to charge the batteries on the trailer. And I still ran the batteries down last nigh because the heater must have caom on alot.

Now I have to run it again today, my art supplies are in the studio trailer and I try not to bring to much of to clutter the house trailer. so I may end up with both generators having to run today even if I'm not there.

I'll be playing this evening. It's a little after Noon here in the land of Kansas. I love it that Char, Sniisk and others start the a-thons off with eye candy for the rest of us! Give me inspiration! I have two swaps I must get done this weekend but I'll have plenty of time to make ATCs as well. I'll be doing some rearranging of this workspace this afternoon so I can find stuff when I need it!
A little less than five hours till I can get crackin' on some collaged ATCs! This is going to be a fun weekend!

I just got home from the thrift store. Scored me some good stuff and will be putting a bit of it to good use this weekend. Found two boxes of 'ancient' flash cards that are made out of ivory colored cardstock...perfect for blanks!~ I don't need blanks though at the moment, got tons of them!
I'm fixin' to get busy on collaging. I'll be back in about an hour or so with something to show to you folks. Good stuff coming from you all thus far! It's gonna be a great weekend for trading!
Happy Collaging!

ohhhh I missed most of the last one (only 3 cards made) so hope to find time for this one :) need to clear off space on my work area - right now it's a foot deep with bits of this and that, torn papers, pens, glues and paints.

LOL! I'm sooo glad I'm not the only one that has a desk like that. :cute: I have a really big desk and only about a 12"x12" area where you can see the desk. When I clean it off I find papers and things that I forgot I had. :embarrassed:

I had trouble pasting from my gallery at first to. I have tried to add more info to the directions in the first post. I am not good with words and it may make things more confusin instead of better, but I thought I'd try to help since my computer doesn't react well when I try to open those thumbnails to look at things better.

Go to your pic in your gallery click the picture to bring up the page where people leave comments
Right click on the pic to bring up the menu - click on properties at the bottom of the menu
this brings up another box with the info on your pic -
copy the address
go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard) paste the address into the window that pops up and and hit ok - that puts the code into your post for your pic to show up paste the address from the properties box over the http thingy that shows when you open the "insert image" box

Remember that images from the gallery can be small, medium or large. I try to use medium ... find the word or letter s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

My computer will also being going in for some work in the morning--so, I will have to share with my 5 kids on the desktop! Sigh! It is going to be challenging to get to scan and post pics of what I get made tomorrow--but I will get it done! LOL

no fun...where do you work????

Getting off to work now, this is a commandment to all:
Don't post any J.D./pirates cards for the next 12 hours because I won't get to see them before someone else gets them....at risk of the DragonQueen breathing fire on your gallery....

I just started a new job about a month ago--so, now I work at the VA hospital in-patient psych unit--and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
It has been a great change of jobs--I worked at the state psych hospital for the previous 10 years--and the atmosphere is sooooo much better here. The vets are treated with lots of respect and dignity--which was non-existant where I was before!

The only drawback is that the schedule changes week to week, so I never know for sure which days I will have off in advance. But I will gladly put up with that for the more positive atmosphere!

You can trade with whomever you want, if they are part of the CAT or not. Your choice always. I think the point of the CAT is to play with your art and make some trades. Or not trade at all if you so choose. Having fun with your art is the only requirement I'd have... :D

GOOD MORNING! Great art and some cards I'd love to add to my collection have been traded. It sure felt good to get 8 hours of sleep. It's been a long week.

I figured out something that may be a problem for those of you still having trouble uploading from their gallery. In the properties box, when you highlight the address to copy it... sometimes the address is three lines long and only two show (the third scrolls down out of sight) If you highlight from the beginning of the address down it should get it all. This may be why some of you gat the little x or why sometimes it works other times not.

"Keepsake" is a little blurry because it is slight dimensional. This holds it at a slight angle from the scanner.

I finally got a couple made! I'd love to trade with someone I haven't traded with before. The green card is called 'White Tea' and the 2nd card with the heart is called 'He's Gone'.
