Welcome to the May Collage-a-thon…

It’s open to everyone!

Start time (in your time zone – start when your clock says 5:00 pm) May 1 at 5:00 pm
End time (in your time zone) May 3, 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 May 1 (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 May 3 (your time zone) you’re done collaging… however trading may continue…


OPTIONAL THEME AND CHALLENGE: (key word is optional... do whatever floats your boat as long as it's collage)
Theme: May Day – whatever that means in your area of the world.
Challenge: Recycled art using at least three (3) recycled or re-purposed items. Create an ATC using only recycled or re-purposed materials… (i.e. junk mail, receipts, old keys, tickets, used stamps, things intended for the garbage, etc…). The ATC “blank” counts if made from re-cycled materials. Embellishing with pens, inks, glitter etc is great… just make sure you have at least three (3) recycled or repurposed items as part of the card.


HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a card 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.

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: You'll need 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.
1) Go to your picture in your gallery click the picture to bring up the page where people leave comments
2) Right click on the picture to bring up the menu
3) Click on properties at the bottom of the menu - this brings up another box with the info on your picture
4) Copy the Location. I think there is an actual Copy Image Location to click on, or highlight the "location" and copy (right click, click copy or Ctrl C)
5) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
6) Paste the address (right click, click paste or Ctrl P) into the window that pops up and 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
7) and then you're done.

[IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/large/1_foxglove_fairy.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. I try to use medium ... find the word large or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

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.

I really would love to play in one more cat before I quit.
I love everyones art so much, but we found out today our rent is being raised, and I will have to cut out all the postage I spend on this site, and a few other things.
So I'll see if I can do this one last cat, which is one of my very favorite things! If so I'll have limits on how many I dan trade with.
As soon as I get time I'm boxing up all of my gazllion supplies, and when I decide what I'm going to do with everything there might be a big give away in the furture. The great artists I usually trad ewith in cat would be my first choice to give away too.

I hope to play some. My boys are in a Math-Olympics all day Saturday--I have to be there (mostly just sitting) so I will have time to work on some prep work, I think. Then I could put some cards together on Saturday evening and Sunday...at least, as long as life doesn't get in the way! LOL

Sorry to hear that you may be leaving, Donna. Have you thought of maybe just cutting back to doing one on one trades rather than quit completely? I know that postage can get expensive. I probably am going to start limiting my spending as well as the number of swaps and trades I do monthly. Hope we can trade again before you go.

I should be able to get some done before my husband gets home Saturday, But I will either be at the computer OR at my art since I'm not going to try setting the computer up in the other trailer again. It was just to crowded and to hard. I also can't spend to much time on it after he gets home because he wants to go into Fort Bragg Sunday.

Donna I'd be happy to send a sase with any trades we do! Don't quit hun!!!!

By the way, if you think 50000 people at the same park is not much, just a tip, it's about 1% of the population in Finalnd. In the USA scale it would mean about 4 million people :).

Wonderful cards everyone. I got home early today because it was quiet at the office and I thought I'd get an early start. My electric power is out so no beeswax collage or heat embossing. I decided to go out to lunch since I can't cook either-my stove runs on electricity. At least they have Internet here so I can look at what everyone is doing. If the power is not back on when I get home, I'll just have to figure out how to collage the good old fashioned way I guess!

I didn't know there was a CAT this weekend! Here I am cleaning my house top to bottom when I could be CAT-ing yesterday and today!

OK, look out as soon as I'm done mopping, I'll be glueing.

I can't believe I didn't know about this!!!

OK...last night turned into a one-card night, what with the exciting baseball game...having a winning team really cuts into art time! (Yes, Tam, we were on the edge of our seats watching Lopez at the end of the ninth!)

Anyway, I dived into the art studio first thing this morning and have emerged with the following (and a few in more in various stages of creation) ~

You have been busy! Lots of eye candy!
We're back from shopping/garage sales/garden center with lots of fun things. I got some fun papers from the scrapbook shop - all 30% off, a water brush for 40% off, and the new Tim HOltz distress ink in tattered rose taht I couldn't resist... I'll play with it shortly. :D
Found a funky little shelf that was for spices originally, I think. It's older and well built, now needs to be washed, distressed and hung in my art room to hold my favorite cheap acrylic paints or alcohol inks. And found a free pile from someones redone kitchen and got some cool cabinet doors and also some small pickets... Fun, fun!
Anyway, gotta go create some more cards so I can keep trading...

Chardonnay1965
05-02-2009, 06:25 PM
