    Red face An Impromptu ATART from now to Sept 24!

    This is the Impromptu ATART from now to Sept 24th.

    It has already started. I'm doing a whole week because I figure it will take a few days to even get the word out to eneough !

    Start times, NOW! This a-thon will end when Sunday is turning to be Monday 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

    ... Invite three friends, the more the merrier!
    ... Draw or Paint something
    Watercolorists chat and paint thread
    ... Make a house shaped ATC or Cabinet card
    HAUNTED HOUSES - House Shaped ATC Swap, due October 15, 2018
    ~ HOUSE ~ Come to our Block Party ~ Trade House Shaped ATcs ~
    House Shaped "Cabinet Card" Trade - up to 4" x 9" card OPEN MEDIA
    ... Make a set of Buddy card starters, find a Buddy to complete them. (2-cards then you both get one to keep)
    ★ BUDDY CARD TRADING ★
    ... Make some Altered Playing Cards(APCs) Lots of people collect themed decks.
    LIST: 1-1 APC Trades
    ... Window or Door ATC cards for Build a House With ATC's
    samples in this swap from back in August

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

    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. (copy is ctrl+c and paste is ctrl+v in Windows)
    3) Go to your post and 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.

    Hey, Linda, you know how Marie had that build a house swap? I would be very interested in collecting some cards to build a haunted house.

    I would like a Frankenstein monster in one window. Do you even know what swap I mean?

    Wouldnt that be cute?

    I will probably pop in some. we are recovering from the wreckage Florence left. Making a card or two might be a relief.

    Thats a cute idea CQ. I added it to the first swap. If you would like you could edit the second post to make kind of a list of requests or artists interested in those.

    Oh my goodness... I so want to participate! I'm in the midst of League of Women Voters October election forum preparation, and need to do something creative. No clue if I'll have the time, but I wanna give it a try. Thanks for hosting, Linda!

    Hi everybody. I am so bad. Ended up watching a Law and Order dvd-marathon instead of an art-a-thon. Promise to do better tomorrow.

    CQ that is an adorable house, love it.
