    Valentine's Day ATART Feb 14-17

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

    start time (in MY time zone) 12.01am (JUST after midnight) on Thursday 14 February and end time 11.59pm (midnight) on Sunday 17 February in the latest time zone or thereabouts. . .

    What we can do: ATCs, ATCoins, chunky pages, Inchies, Twinchies, charms, jewellery, art dolls, skinny pages, journal pages, tags, rolos, gothic arches, postcards, or whatever type of art your Muse calls you to create

    All mediums are welcome: collaging, sewing, painting, drawing, digital, photographs, beading. . .

    All styles are welcome: APCs, zentangles, stamps (postage and rubber), stickers. . .

    And of course we can trade.

    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS ATART: (adapted from VickiZ's 2012 ATART)
    Thursday: pretty in pink or white or red (traditional Valentine's colours)
    Vintage Valentines with pithy comments and puns. Bright colours and funny sayings
    Victorian Valentines with ribbon, lace or washi tape. Soft colours and sentiments of Love

    Friday: NON-traditional colours
    Steampunk Valentines. Grunge
    Valentines that MOVE - spin, slide, pull, pop-up, twist, open, etc
    Valentines with a pocket, in a pocket

    Saturday: Stamps (postage stamps and/or rubber stamps) and dies
    Use stamps released for Valentine's Day - heart shapes, with words or themes of Love
    Also use postage stamps of people you love, or who make you think of Love, or are known for their songs about Love (Love me tender, Can't help falling in Love with you, . . .)
    Use heart shaped rubber stamps or dies.
    Don't forget Cupid!! Go realistic, whimsical, cartoon-y, silly, zetti, . . .

    Sunday: As this is the last day why not give ourselves some LOVE (hearts), FLOWERS, CHOCOLATE and WINE.

    This ATART is open to everyone and every kind of level and types of art.

    What is an ATART?

    It is an All Types of ART marathon, 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 see a piece of art you would like to trade for, please SEND A PERSONAL MESSAGE (PM) to thatperson 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 2 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 2 windows open.

    1) Go to your Gallery and right click on the picture you wish to post - this brings up a menu which includes "Copy image location".
    2) Left click on 'Copy image location'
    3) Go to your post and hit the 'Insert image' button (it looks like a postcard)
    4) Paste the address (right click, hit 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

    (I left 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 THUMBNAIL (which appears at the bottom of your post).
    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.

    NEW TO ATARTS?
    If you have any questions at all, feel free to post your questions to the thread or PM me. 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 all your cards.
    You can't get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn't know who you are.

    This athon is just in time... I've been overwhelmed with real life...too much to do...too little time.
    My artwork took the hit...my space is still full of Christmas...at least the red carries forward!
    I'll look in and should be creating over the weekend (better late than never).

    welcome to the dedicated Athoners! I was just about to send out invites but you beat me to it - well done!

    Lorna​ - Life has been belting me up a little at the moment as well so we may see about extending this Athon if the other players like

    Just keeping the countdown going - just over 3.5 hours to go. . .

    Hopefully you are finding all your secret hiding places for resources and making sure that you have glue sticks and scissors ready for mixed media artists, or all your favourite medias for the HD/HP artists.

    Hunt around and find that thing/resource/style that you had forgotten all about and learn to love it again during the Athon.

    Have fun!

    I will be lurking. We flew to Mesa, AZ for 17days, just had to get out of the cold. Didn't have time or space for art supplies.

    Bookmarking. Don't think I'll have time to play, but who knows? I might squeeze out a card over the weekend!

    I have to head out to the local? Haha 48 minute drive, going fast, I presume. Local Scrapbooking store. I ordered some red Nuvo drops and they have free local pick up. I am drinking coffee and waiting for rush hour to be over. I have never been to this store before.

    Going out that far you would think I should plan more, like take some books to changing hands book store etc.

    Not really motivated yet.

    I have 179 items in my gallery. I maxed out last night and had to clear some out. I need to give away some cards. There is a link in my signature.

    I think A deal is in order, buy one get one free... except we are too buying. I will pull out 6 for Dithespy's swap.

    Quick question... does all the art have to be Valentine related? or is it just the name of the ATART? (I'm just not a hearts 'n flowers kinda girl!) Thank you

    DOnnacr my daughter moved to Melbourne, like this month. She is very happy. She is back to being Vegan, she said that scene is very alive in Melbourne.
