    St Patrick's ATART

    Your Hosts for this wonderful time of creation will be: donnacr and sharlene54

    Start time (in your time zone) 12:01 am (JUST after midnight) on Thursday March 14, 2013 and end time (in your time zone) 11:59 pm (midnight) Monday March 18, 2013

    What we can do: ATC’s, chunky pages, 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...

    All styles are welcome: APCs, zentangles, stamps (postage and rubber), stickers, various colour schemes (b/w, pastels/brights, autumn/winter/spring/summer shades, single colours, etc)

    And of course we can trade .

    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS A-THON:

    Thursday: all things green

    Friday: celebrations - elements of a celebration, you celebrating, reasons for celebrating, etc

    Saturday: - found poetry

    Sunday: add a shamrock somewhere on your card

    Monday: ?


    This a-thon is open to everyone and every kind of level 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 'small' or 's'.

    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/show....php?p=1148669

    NEW TO A-THONS? If you have any questions at all, feel free to pm me or justducky 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.

    Hi Sharlene! Fighting migraines - I see a pain specialist soon. I'm therapeutic with my med for the blood clots and that's a big relief. Still trying to solve some old health problems that are now an issue and could send me back to the hospital. It's nerve wracking but I have a good team of docs. Going slow and when I'm up to it I do a little art.

    I will be co-hosting with Donnacr. I look forward to all the great and fun art over the next few days.

    I have some backgrounds cut and ready. Is it Thursday yet any where in the world? I need to check my world clock I downloaded onto my iPad.

    I'm out to play cards with my gang. See you later.
