    BLOCK PARTY HOUSE SHAPED CARDS!!! ALL WELCOMED JAN 20-28th

    This is not a swap but a art-a-thon for house shaped cards. A block party.

    There is a group of us who just adore house shaped cards. We would like to infect more of you with this addictive obsession. Please join us. You are welcomed to any size house. Inchies, twichies, Moos, 2.5 x 3.5, Even a coin if you can make that work go for it. Please state the size of your art when you post photos. SEE GENERAL SIZE INFO FARTHER DOWN

    Sunday Jan 20th at noon, to Monday Jan 28th midnight.

    Your hosts are myself, CastleQueen5 and Linda4atc

    Basic rules from our group thread, aka Block Party edited to fit the Art a thon. some removed for redundancy in art a ton rules.

    RULES:
    ~ play nice with others
    ~ All trades are done as private trades, it is not a swap.
    ~ Communicate with your trade partner, If you both are going to be making more houses you may want to hold open the envelope and make it a multiple trade over the course of the art a thon.

    ~ You do not have to trade just because you were asked to. Not all art appeals to every collector. But remember not everybody has the same supplies to work with, or skills; so be kind.
    ~ If you really want a house someone made, You can ask them to hold it (trade pending) and try to making a house they are interested in. But no trade is required with out both participants approval.


    SIZE MATTERS! OR DOESNT!

    In general a house shaped atc fits into the 2.5 x3.5 dimensions, including the roof. It all fits into that area.


    “A Moo House is 1" wide and between 2.75" to 3.25" in height with roof.


    An inchie house. “The house should be an (1x1). The roof should be the size of an Inchie cut in half on the diagonal.”

    Twinchie house The house should be 2.x2, add the roof.

    And it’s always cute to add the optional smokestack.

    Then there are cabinet cards, made into houses.

    We really would love to see some photos!!!

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

    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,
    We are a group that is comfortable with posting in the thread that you like and want a house. But keep in mind pms are fine, and players are not obligated to trade a house to the first player who comments, in the thread that they want it. See rules above from the group.

    Note: If you do make a trade, please be sure to send to your trade partner within two weeks of the END of the art a thon. If you’re running late, communicate! Mail by date for this art a thon would be FEB 11/12. 2019

    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.

    A house Athon sounds fun! I will keep this in mind. I have just been unpacking my supplies at our temporary home and might be inspired to make something once I find a place for everything. There were loads of ATC backgrounds and even half made cards, so these might want to turn into something new soon!

    Oh gosh, this looks like fun after a super crazy week. I have a couple of house shaped backgrounds so will see what I can scrounge up.

    Sounds like lots of fun. I will see what this mind can come up with.
    Just spent 5 days taking care of grand children. All are in school so I had so much I wanted to do while they were there. Ha Ha
    One got sick and was home for 3 days. I never got any place. I so wanted to get to Micheal's.

    My mine is in thinking mode as of now.

    Hey CQ, maybe you or somebidy else knows for sure. I quess I could go look up archived swaps...

    but it hit me this morning. And may need to be pointed out to people. a House shaped ATC is 2.5" x 3.5" (If you sketch the shape on a firm atc or playing card, try to make it touch on all four sides., even if only a point of the roof touches.

    The question I am not sure on since I never made or collected them, but I think house shaped inchies, twinchies and moos have a roof added to the normal size piece making them larger than usual???

    Morning chaosatlanta good to see you.

    Dsign49 That week I spent down at my sons reminded me of why moms have kids when they are young. The three year old really wore me out. But they do make the heart warm. I wish I lived close enough to see them often but in smaller doses at a time. LOL

    JavaZarf I often procrastinate too. I have wanted to to an Angela Lansbury swap since shortly after Leonard Nemoy passed. I wanted to do hand drawn to practice my portrait drawing. I could have made some cards anytime. Well I did finally start a swap, but now I think I will end up doing collage cards. I have so many swaps I want to do, but the last atart kept me busy. I did get three out yesterday with deadlines fast approaching. I wanted to do the Raven swap too, but now I am doing this a-thon instead of those cards.

    LOL even my Block Party neighbors in the trade thread know, I procrastinated on starting this a-thon for awhile too. We just kept talking about it. Well it's here now, and I am so glad to see a lot of new a-thon or House-shaped artist.

    Less than two hours to start! Maybe I should get breakfast and check out what Creativation you tubes!

    Thanks for the invitation to join this swap. I'm not sure I'll be able to join in but will keep an eye on it and perhaps will be inspired to make a few cards.

    I see what you are saying here. A house shaped atc is 2.5 x3.5 with usually the roof and chimney still inside the diameters.

    Whereas, a inchie is one inch with a roof added, and Twinchine is 2 inches with a roof. and a moo is....

    And there is that other size. cabinet cards?

    Here is the description I used for a moo house when I had a moo house sap:

    “A Moo House is 1" wide and between 2.75" to 3.25" in height with roof.
    The roof can be an Inchie cut in half or other shapes so long as it looks like a roof.”

    And here’s the inchie house description I used for my inchie house swap:

    “The house should be an Inchie (1x1). The roof should be the size of an Inchie cut in half on the diagonal.”

    And it’s always cute to add the optional smokestack.
