    Another All-Types-of-Art a-thon!!!!

    It’s another “All-Types-of-Art” a-Thon Weekend!

    Come play with us this weekend! Create art using any medium, in any size, shape or form, post your creation on this thread, trade if you wish, chat, have fun!

    Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm on Friday August 28, 2009 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm August 30, 2009. Or whenever we decide to stop playing.


    JUST WHAT IS THIS ART-A-THON?
    It’s a marathon create-your-favorite-art 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 this thread is our play room.

    This weekend we will :
    1) Create art: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, gothic arches, post cards... (what am I forgetting?)
    2) Trade art - if you wish.
    3) Trade goody bags… just fill a bag with some fun arty things or ephemera, and post your offer and see who wants to trade. (posting pictures of the contents is optional)
    4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
    5) HAVE FUN!



    Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE, and it is open themed. Create whatever is speaking to you today.


    HOW IT WORKS: At 12:00 noon on August 28 (your time zone) start creating art, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Continue throughout the weekend. Trading and chatting ensues. At 11:59 on August 30 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to trade as long as you like. Well, and if we want to keep playing…

    HOW TO ASK FOR A TRADE: When you find a piece of art or goody bag 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.

    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… consider clicking 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.
    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 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) and then you're done.

    [IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/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 small 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 your art "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 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.

    From a flickr or photobucket account:
    http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2115

    NEW TO A-THONS?

    If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me 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.

    Let’s get started creating!

    I'll play as much as I can. It's almost midnight here - is it 12 noon anywhere yet? Counting down the hours.

    Hi Lorraine! Nice to have someone here playing with me.

    I came back home from the hospital and now I'll make a cup of tea and then I can start. It's about 11.55 here .

    I have one ATC ready and some half made cards but I'm making more before I upload them.

    I think I need to cook something soon .
