    An Impromptu ATART from now to Nov 22, 2018!

    Impromptu ATART from now to It has already started. CQ had to cancel the athon she planned so I am filling in on those days. Sanna and CastleQueen will co-host with me.

    Now to the end of Thanksgiving Day in the last timezone (here in CA) 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.

    No official optional challenges this time.
    (note: I copied all this from Sniisk's last impromptu atart, Thanks Sanna)

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

    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.

    My pictures will be terrible, I can promise it. We have so dark days and I cannot use my camera's flash because papers I have used would reflect light too much. Colors don't look normal. My cards are so plain in pictures!

    I'm going with more images inspired by travel brochures (Aren't you glad I am off my "bat kick" from the last athon?)

    Nice cards so far, jo.on.go. and Sniisk.

    I got a pot of beans in the crock pot. They are not done, those can take some time. I am heading out soon and will be back by lunch. I hope they are ready by then. I have way too many beans WAY TOO MANY

    A few more travel brochure-inspired cards. Hey, if you have suggestions of locations you would like me to draw, let me know either here or as a PM - a suggestion doesn't mean you have to take the card I draw. After these cards, I have to pause at ATHONing and get to drawing some cards for swaps. I have about three swaps in which I have only drawn one or two cards. Nothing like getting distracted by an Athon.
