    Talking Here´s the Draw-(and Paint-)-a-Thon, July 1 - 3

    Draw-a-thon for July 1 - 3 --- but painting is allowed, too

    I can hardly wait to play, so this is going to start Friday, July 1 00:01 am (Midnight) your local time and end on Sunday, July 3 at 11:59 pm your local time.

    You can use mixed media or collage - for example -, too, but there must be at least one handdrawn or handpainted element in your artwork.

    What is an A-Thon?
    It´s a marathon where you can create art, done over the same time in each time zone. This thread is going to be our craftroom, where we can meet, talk, encourage each other and admire each others art.


    Trading: is very welcome. But please DO NOT post requests for trades to the thread, this can get too confusing. Please use the Private Message (PM) System. DO NOT delete your image or post after making a trade, but edit your post instead.

    Please include your name, username, location and date on all your art.

    If you make a trade, please be sure to mail your art within two weeks. Communicate, if you´re running late!

    Want to compliment an artist: And you will ... ... click the "You Rock" button unter the person´s post and leave it there.

    PLEASE remember to use a kind of fixative/sealer on pencil/charcoal drawings.

    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.
    Internet Explorer
    1 Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu has “properties” at the bottom.
    2) Right click on “properties”, and it will show you Address (URL). Highlight the address/url and copy (Ctrl C).
    Then follow steps 3 - 5
    Note: Your picture will come up as large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.

    Mozella Firefox and Mac Safari (most versions)
    1) Go to the main page of your gallery & right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu that includes “Copy Image Location” (which is about 2/3 down the list for me)
    2) Click on the “Copy Image Location”
    Then follow steps 3 - 5

    3) Go to your post in the thread and click on 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) Remember that images from the gallery are small, medium or large. Most folks use small or medium in the thread. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want.

    [IMG]http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/400/small/1_Maygar_Posta-traded.jpg [/IMG

    (leaving the last bracket off the above so you can see how the address will look)


    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


    And now sharpen your pencils, grab your pens, markers or pastels and paints and begin prepping backgrounds - but don´t start until Friday.

    I am glad you added painting in the athon. I am not so into drawing or... maybe I should do more of it. Anyway, I have a busy weekend ahead, but try to drop in a few times.

    Am I the first one?

    OK, I have one handpainted item in my ATC . I have a collaged background, 'painted' with ink, painted a shell with acrylics and then finished with rubber stamping.

    Not for trade, I am working on some stock (for the London meet up )

    today I'm drawing cards and will upload something when I've painted 'em and they're dry enough to get scanned. Happy Canada Day!

    Wow! Wonderful cards ladies! I can see I'm going to have to travel to London to snag some of this lovely artwork. Lets see, a ticket from San Fran to London...
