    Pre-Christmas ATART December 2-6

    This is the official thread for Pre-Christmas a-thon (ATART) on December 2-6.

    Sniisk and dsign49 are hosting. If you have questions, please put them in the thread. Answering PMs may take longer.

    Start times, on Thursday around midnight in EUROPE, it is Friday morning in Eastern Asia / Australia and Thursday afternoon in the US. This a-thon will end when Tuesday is turning to be Wednesday in Europe. However, don't take the given timelines too literally. (I will be working abroad and will be back home on Thursday evening / night so I cannot follow this thread earlier.)

    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.

    Optional challenges:

    Friday: First day of December, starting the holiday season, Christmas preparations, gifts
    Saturday: Snow, snowmen, snowflakes, colour white
    Sunday: Colours red and green
    Monday: Colours gold and silver, angels, traditions
    Tuesday: Colour blue, Finland (you know why?)

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

    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.

    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.

    I'll be participating! Why is Friday so far away... And you bet I'm gonna make Finland-themed art on Tuesday! This is a perfect opportunity!
    Don't give up what you want most, for what you want now.

    What sort of things would be appropriate for the 'Finland' theme?

    I don't collect holiday cards, but I can still do some snowmen, and I can still make holiday cards. Maybe I can trade My atart, for something old in the other artists galleries that is not a holiday card,

    I do love snowflakes too and angels. So I will see you soon.
