    Exclamation The Mid Feb Collage a-thon Feb 11 – 14...Come Play!

    It’s a Collage-a-thon... affectionately known as a CAT among die hard collage-a-thoners … this weekend, Feb 11 – 14. We’re having a party across the time zones of the globe... we're all creating art at the same time. How fun is that?

    Start time (in your time zone) 12:00 pm (noon) on Friday February 11, 2011 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Monday February 14, 2011


    What we'll do this weekend is create art including at least one collaged item. Then post it to the thread and trade as much as you'd like! The only requirement is that you have “collaged” somewhere on your art.


    Optional Themes:
    Friday - Black White and Red
    Saturday - All Winged Things - birds, butterflies, bees, cupids, dragonflies, faeries...
    Sunday - Hearts
    Monday - Valentines


    A COUPLE OF RULES TO ABIDE BY, PLEASE!:
    1. Asking for a trade: When you find a piece of art 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.

    2. If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks. If you’re running late, communicate!

    A couple of FYI's:
    *You can compliment via the "you rock" button. (It's a nice warm fuzzy!)
    *Questions on posting, etc, look here

    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_SAT_Autumn_Redwing.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


    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.

    Who wants to play?

    Okay... so let's party. We need suggestions for daily themes/challenges.

    Since it's valentines weekend, that is an obvious but which day? I LOVE birds... would love to do a bird or winged thing day.

    What else?

    Winged things sounds good to me! What about a mixed media collage day?

    If it's collage, I'm in! Although I do like ATCs, I'm hoping to add to my chunky books and the themes I'm looking for are birds, Zetti and black & white

    yay, Evalila will be here!

    smokeysmom, we can collage anything our little hearts desire. Chunky pages sound fun... and I'll probably be doing a few Gothic Arches as well.

    I am definitely planning to attend - I will have a late start as I am booked for a shopping day with my middle daughter. . . lots of fun!!

    what about a particular colour or topic - eg red/white/black, cool or warm colours, vintage,etc?
    OR using a particular shape as the focal point?
    OR having a 3D element on the card?

    Hmmm...it's midterms week lol. I'll try and do a few since I've been drawing quite a bit and I'm getting tired of it lol.
    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 try to play at least on Friday and possibly some on Monday (though I really need to get going on my first Moley at something faster than a snail pace).
