    Official St Patrick's Marathon!

    Welcome to the St Pat's ATART taking place from Thursday, March 15 (starting at 12:01am in the morning) through Monday March 19 (ending at midnight).

    It will be an ATART so all art is welcome but since it's St Pat's weekend I thought it would be fun to have a challenge that every piece of art has something GREEN on it. It doesn't have to be a lot of green and it could be any shade of green but at least a little green - somewhere.

    Co-hosts

    Thursday - Sharlene54
    Friday - Sharlene54
    Saturday - Mrubyjean
    Sunday - Mrubyjean
    Monday - Purplybunny

    Cathy1 is co-hosting during the weekend days to cover the time zones on the other side of the world while those of us here are asleep.

    PRIZES

    I have a selection of prizes that will be awarded during the marathon. Here are the specifics:

    As you know green is the theme and the idea is to have a little something green in everything you make during this marathon. Now if you happen to upload something that doesn't have any green in it - the green police are not going to come after you. We are going to keep this marathon FUN! However to qualify for the prizes only art with something green will be counted.

    Regular Random Drawing
    Each day from 12:01 am until 12 midnight that night the hosts will be will be keeping a list of everyone that uploads at least one piece of art that meets these 2 requirements:

    1 Has green in it
    2 Is available for trade

    Your name will be entered once per day regardless of how much art you upload. You may only win one regular random drawing prize during the entire marathon.

    Prizes include colored flower mini brads, epoxy frames, dimesional stickers and prizes will be assigned randomly.

    Grand Prize Drawing

    This prize package will be awarded to the person who uploads the most availble for trade art with green in it from 12:01am Monday morning through 12 midnight Monday night. The art does not need to be created from begining to end on Monday but it must be finished on Monday.

    The last day of a marathon is usually the quietest and this way the person who stays strong until the end gets the prize.

    This package includes a mini pad of double sided paper, coordinating dimensional stickers and coordinating paper ribbon.

    Co-hosts are eligible for all prizes.

    Here is a link to one of our past marathons that has complete instructions on how to upload photos to the thread.

    Lurking is encouraged and please upload images of any art created this weekend even if it's not for trade.

    HAPPY ST PATRICK’S DAY and have a great time playing in the marathon!

    I hope you feel better soon, Jaw and I hope you can join the marathon.

    I have some background done and some ideas in my mind. I hope I don't have brain freeze. I already can't find things I want to use.

    This sounds like so much fun, KESagers....and I need this 'Atart' to get me going again. I've been overworked, worn out and in the doldrums for a while now and all artwork has ceased during that time. I desperately need to get my groove back.

    Hope you ladies are feeling well very soon. I know there has been a lot of stuff going around lately. I am trying to avoid it as much as possible!
