    Official Memorial Week-end Marathon

    Your Hosts for this wonderful time of creation will be (in alphabetical order): dsign49 and friends.

    Starting time in the earliest time zone 12.01am (JUST after midnight) on Thursday the 23 of May and ends 11.59pm (midnight) on Tuesday the 28 of May 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:
    Thursday: Last days of school. Use things that we would bring home from school that were in our desks.

    Friday: Poppies….They can be drawn, collaged, painted or how you would like to do them.

    Saturday: Vacation Plans for the Summer. This would be a good place to do some Found Poetry.

    Sunday: Picnic…. Food, games played at picnics or what you do on picnics and where you go to have them.

    Monday: MEMORIAL DAY Lets remember our soldiers and what they have done for us.

    Tuesday: Finish up your projects. Can still play if you like.

    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 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 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.

    Wolf_Moon - the themes are suggestions only.
    If your Muse wants to go a different way - feel free.
    If you can only play sporadically, that is also okay, no need for a continuous presence.
    Even if your Muse goes on strike, you are very welcome to come and join the chat - we sometimes get WA-A-A-Y off track but have a lot of fun doing it.

    I am sorry I missed the midnight gun but I have 1 more swap to catch up with before I can start to play.

    It is now 10.30am on Thursday 23rd in Australia so the marathon can commence!
