    Post-Christmas ATART December 26-January 2, 2011

    NOTICE: We extended this a-thon!

    Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Sunday December 26, 2010 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Sunday January 2, 2011

    What all can we do:
    ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rolos, gothic arches, post cards – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create!

    All mediums are welcome: collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting...

    And of course we can trade .

    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS A-THON:

    Sunday: use at least one postage stamp / completing at least one ATC that's been sitting unfinished for far too long

    Monday: APCs / recycling some of the holiday packaging or wrapping in your art

    Tuesday: a stamped image somewhere in your art

    Wednesday: layers (as many as you can)

    Thursday: the 1-1-11 / New Year

    Friday: something new (new technique)

    Saturday: hand drawn / painted cards

    Sunday: non ATC day (dotees, jewlery, whatever)

    This a-thon is open to everyone and every kind levels and types of art.

    What IS an A-THON?
    It’s a marathon when you can create art, done over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our crafting room.

    HOW IT WORKS:
    Start creating art when it's time to start, then upload your lovely creations to your gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.

    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.

    [IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/296/small/1_64.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 or letters s m l in the address and change it to size you want.

    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 RobbyGirl, 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.

    IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

    This sounds great! I especially love Sunday's "completing at least one ATC that's been sitting unfinished for far too long"

    Yay! Can't wait! I'm thinking about trying some APCs if I can find ones the right size. So far all the ones I've found are 2 1/4 inches, not 2 1/5 inches, but I will persevere. (Dollar stores here I come!)

    Just found out I'll be away for pretty much just these days! Haha oh well. But I leave at night on the 26th so I'll try to make some stamp cards that day. I'll use some of the themes after I get back. Have fun, everyone!
    Please pm me if you see a card you like in my gallery! I'm always willing to consider 1:1 trades or personal requests. If I comment on your card, I am probably willing to trade for it.

    I'll be here for at least some of the a-thon. I still need pages for my winter/Christmas chunky book and I'm always good for some inchies.

    The craft room became a closet for the holidays - no room to even walk. If I can shovel it out it looks like I might be able to play a little this week. 5 minutes til Christmas eve here. Merry Christmas everyone!
