    March Madness Collage-a-thon 3/18 to 3/21!

    It's a March Madness Collage-a-thon, running FOUR FULL DAYS, from Thursday March 18, 12:01 AM (just after midnight) to Sunday March 21, 11:59pm..(just before midnight)

    Start time (in your time zone at 12:01am) March 18 at 12:01 am (just after midnight)
    End time (in your time zone 11:59 pm) March 21 11:59 pm. Trading (if you wish) ensues at will throughout the weekend and beyond…


    What is 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 are all together for the weekend to play with our art supplies 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.

    Just what is COLLAGE?
    A collage (From the French: coller, to glue) is a work of art made from an assemblage of different forms, thus creating a new whole.
    For the purpose of this a-thon, collage is the combining of materials to create art, be that paper, fabric, beads, paint, metal… any combination of adhering two or more materials together is considered collage.

    This weekend is all about creating art and having fun, even if you only finish one piece during the weekend.

    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?
    Remember you can click the “You Rock” button and leave your admiration there too!

    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 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... find the word large or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want. (I usually leave it small.)

    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

    Any questions? Just post to the thread or send Sniisk or myself a pm.

    Let's start collaging! :jiggly:

    When I started on this site most of my cards were collage but I seem to have lost my collage mojo lately - hopefully this a-thon will help kick start it again.

    Just to clarify, is the start time 12:01 or 5 PM (mentioned in the bold green type, second paragraph)? Either way, Daryl isn't coming in until Saturday morning so I might be able to play Friday at least.

    Eek! It is 12:01 AM... just after midnight. I've edited to correct.

    Thanks for pointing it out...

    I'm excited. My Dad's visiting but I'll give him a couple extra glasses of wine to keep him busy while I art!

    I had so much fun trading in the Art A Thon, that I'm a Yes for this one too. I am home sick today, so I may just start getting things going and be ready to go on Thursday.

    I'm going to make every effort to play this time around - my art room is clean (amazing), I am in good health, and I don't think I have any visitors that will take my time.

    Whoo hoo!

    I'm envious of your clean art room! I have a clean spot on my art table... does that count?

    We start Thursday at 12:01am... before you go to bed (if you're a night owl) or as soon as you wake up if you're not.

    I get to work 9 hours shifts Friday and Saturday, and a 4 1/2 hour shift Thursday night, but other than that... I'm playing. LOL!
