    ATART on March 16-19

    This is the official thread for our ATART on March 16-19.

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

    Start times, on Friday March 16th right after the midnight in the first timezone, it is Thursday afternoon in Europe and Thursday early morning in the US. This a-thon will end when Monday is turning to be Tuesday in the last timezone. However, don't take the given timelines too literally.

    Because we are creating different sizes and forms of art here, it may be useful to inform others if your art piece differs from an ATC and is an inchie, a chunky or something else so we know the size.

    Optional challenges:

    Friday: Dreams, Found Poetry
    Saturday: St. Patrick's Day, APCs
    Sunday: History, take card(s) you never finished because you were stuck...and rework it into something different
    Monday: Spring, using scraps from previous projects

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

    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. And we have "Like" and "Thank" buttons too.

    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 and open the image you want to insert.
    2) Copy the row with [IMG] codes.
    3) Go to your post and hit the "insert image" button (looks like a postcard)
    4) Paste the copies [IMG] code.
    5) and then you're done.

    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'.

    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.

    Can I suggest that Mar 17 is St Pat's Day and would make a good theme?

    Bookmarking! As for ideas, I'm much into experimenting ATCs with fabric and/or stitching right now, getting ready to teach a workshop in a similar theme and planning to join the Stitched/Sewn fabric ATCs swap by BexMadeMe. So that could be an idea: use fabric/thread/yarn/stitching. It does not need to include sewing, fabric scraps can also be attached with glue/double sided tape.

    I will be away for the Athon weekend, though (again!) but if I plan in advance I can prepare a travel kit to take with me.

    How about "Dreams" as a theme (everyone can interpret this as they wish).

    Thank you for the invitation. I will try to participate if I can. May I suggest 'History' as an optional challenge?

    Thanks for the PM. I am bookmarking. I am not really sure I will be creating, we will see. My husband finally goes into the hospital for a Stem cell transplant on the 16th. It will depend on how well he feels, and having me up there. He may just want to rest and not have company. Or he may not want to be left alone.

    CQ5 - a little art therapy I do for myself. I have a little art box I take to work. Usually it contains just paper and scissors. Stuff to cut out. I do that at lunch. It kind of frees up my mind and reduces stress.
    Maybe something similar might be a way for you to pass the time at the hospital.
    Just a thought.

    thanks for the invite

    OHHHH Sanna, Guess what I found about midnight last night? The 9 cards I lost from the last a-thon. So the angels will be on their way to you. My gift to you. I really try to be organized but I am getting worse instead of better in my old age.

    I was racking my brain for what can I take with me, I mean besides a book.
