    Challenge Hunt (ATART) on September 25-28

    This will be the official thread for Challenge Hunt (ATART) on September 25-29. We extended it: one more day!

    List of the supplies you will need if you want to complete all the tasks:

    book pages or a magazine or something similar
    an eraser or potato or something you can carve
    see the video and list what you need: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ytnqGl1R94
    playing cards
    markers or orher pens
    napkins
    a photo (you need to cut it, sorry)
    a camera (in a phone goes well)
    one older ATC (you are not going to destroy it!)
    cancelled stamps
    drawing papers
    a sharp black pen
    a tool (any kind of you can use in making art)
    glitter (loose or glue)
    a stapler + staples
    paints (any kind of) or ink
    a (rubber) stamp + ink

    I don't list any obvious items as normal papers, pens, scissors etc.

    Sniisk is hosting and counting points. If you have questions, please put them in the thread. Answering PMs may take longer.

    When this is over, I will mail three prizes to random players who have gotten at least 30 points . Something handmade this time.

    Start times, on Sunday around midnight in NZ, it is Saturday evening in Europe and Saturday morning in the US. You can start when you see the tasks. This a-thon will end when Wednesday is turning to be Thursday on the last timezone = when it is midnight in GMT -10. I will inform about the time in the thread. How ever, you cannot start before you see the tasks so no need to stress about it .

    Here are some tips about the tasks: A creation means anything that you make. It does not need to be an ATC if not specified in the task. Anything handmade goes well. Again, of course it is harder to trade cakes... Also, the media is free as long as not mentioned in the task. A card means an ATC, a chunky book page, an inchie or anything that can be called as a card.

    Because we are creating different sizes and forms of art here, it may be useful to inform others if it is an ATC, inchie, chunky etc. so we know the size.

    Very important: Mention the task (both the number and description so I won't miss it) you have completed when posting a picture. You can put max three tasks in one creation but remember to mention them all.

    1 point per task if nothing else is told in the task. Total 100 points. You can get points from one task once only.

    If you do not understand a task, please ask. We all are happy to help.

    TASKS ARE IN THE NEXT POST

    And remember, of course you can join this a-thon even if you don't join the hunt!

    ************************************************** *************

    General a-thon info (for all ATARTs)

    What IS an ATART?
    It’s an All Types of ART marathon where you can create art, made 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 Athon gallery and post to the thread. Trading and chatting are going on all the time.
    After all the trading is done move your creations OUT of the Athon Gallery and into their correct Galleries - 'Available ATCs' or 'Mail Art'

    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 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.

    Checking in. I probably won't be doing the tasks, but may be able to create some art to share.

    Welcome all . Sorry I had to choose a bit weird days but my little one is having her birthday on the weekend after this a-thon and my mother-in-law will stay here that week. It means that I will have way more free time during those days until that birthday happening will take all my time.
