    Thumbs up School’s Starting All Types of Art a-thon Sept 1-5!

    School’s Starting All Types of Art a-thon!

    Hosted by Just Ducky and HHC... and here's what's happening:

    Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am (midnight) on Thursday morning, Sept 1, 2011, and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Monday Sept 5, 2011


    This weekend we will :
    1) Create art: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x4’s, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewelry, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rollos, gothic arches, post cards, altered tins – or whatever type of art your heart calls you to create.
    And we'll be collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital altering, photographs, metal work, beading, sculpting, using postage stamps, creating Found Poetry... you name it!
    2) Show what lovely creations you've made
    3) Trade art - if you wish.
    4) Chat (if you can only stop in to admire the art and chat sometimes, that’s absolutely okay!)
    5) HAVE FUN!


    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES/THEMES FOR THE WEEKEND:

    Thursday – All things Animal including Sheep and Mice
    Friday – Art Dolls (i.e paper doll, dotee doll) OR People themed art
    Saturday – Birds, Bees and things with wings
    Sunday – Books / Back to School themes
    Monday - Flowers and Plants / Autumn themes


    Remember this weekend is open to EVERYONE.
    Challenges and themes are ENTIRELY optional. Create whatever is speaking to you today.

    ALSO NOTE that your work does NOT have to be for trade. If you’re working on swaps or a quilt or your journal, show us whatever you’re working on today.



    Here's the "fine print"

    What IS an 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.

    HOW IT WORKS: At 12:01 AM Thursday Sept 1 (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 Monday Sept 5 (your time zone) you’re done creating art… however you may continue to chat and trade as long as you like.

    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… 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. 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
    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 can be small, medium or large. Find the word small, medium or large (or letters s m l) in the address and change it to size you want. Most folks use small or medium in the thread.
    [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

    NEW TO A-THONS?
    If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm your host, 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’s ready to party?

    This A-Thon is going to be the perfect way to decompress after a very hard week emotionally and @ work. I will be working Thur & Fri, but hope to come home & create. Can start posting pics on Sat.
    Yes! I am planning my weekend around this A-Thon!!

    This is going to be fun... my hubs is working Sat - Monday, so I'll have LOTS of time to play.

    Now if only my muse cooperates.

    This is happening one minute after midnight on Wednesday (tomorrow for me)... so it's Thursday morning at 12:01am.

    Does that make sense, or have I confused the issue?

    Yay! A party with friends. I've lots of swaps my evil twin signed me up for. With your help, inspiration, and creative energy, maybe I'll be able to complete some of these commitments. It's always a lot more fun to make cards during these ATARTs!
