    Halloween and Autumn ATART

    Your Hosts for this wonderful time of creation will be (in alphabetical order): donnacr and friends

    Start time (in MY time zone) 12:01 am (JUST after midnight) on Friday October 27 and end time 11:59 pm (midnight) Tuesday October 31 in the latest time zone, or thereabouts. . .

    What we can do: ATC’s, chunky pages, 4x6’s, inchies, twinchies, charms, jewellery, 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, alcohol inks. . .

    And of course we can trade.

    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS A-THON:
    Friday: use purple, green, and orange OR all things Autumn (falling leaves, apples, autumn harvest, autumn colours, etc)

    Saturday: Scary, spooky, creepy OR cuter than cute, whimsical, cuddly

    Sunday: Steampunk, Halloween OR Autumn

    Monday: Critters, pets and monsters
    Halloween - black cats/bats/spiders, ghosts/ghouls/goblins, vampires/mummies/witches, scarecrows

    Tuesday: Trick or treat OR Dia de los Muertos

    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:

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

    I'm in the midst of cleaning up my studio--seven years of stuff piling up--but I'll try to find some time.

    Bookmarking, I'll be away for the weekend, but maybe, if time permits, I might make something before or after. Or at least pop in and say hello.
    Welcome to take a look at my blog, Instagram account and APC wishlist!

    I hope I have time to play this weekend! I have a busy week, so a few days to sit and craft sounds great.
