    St Patís Day ATART. Mar 13-18

    Now changed to a stress relieving Coronathonwith no end date.

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

    If you want to try something new but are worried you can’t make enough for a swap - try it here!

    If you have questions about a particular technique - ask here! There is sure to be someone who has tried it before, if not, I LOVE learning something new.

    Start time (in MY time zone)12.01am (JUST after midnight) on Friday 13 March and ending . . .

    What we can do: ATCs, APCs, ATCoins (2.5”circle), Chunky pages (4" x4”), Inchies (1" x1”), Twinchies (2" x2”), Moos (1” x2.75”), tags, rolos, shaped cards (houses, arches, etc), postcards (4” x6”), bookmarks (2” x6”), or whatever type of art your Muse calls you to create

    All mediums are welcome: collating, sewing, painting, drawing, digital, napkins (with or without beeswax), Washington tape, photographs, beading. . .

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

    And of course we can trade.

    OPTIONAL CHALLENGES FOR THIS ATHON:
    Friday: all things green OR shamrocks (remember these are NOT 4 leaf clovers - they only have 3 sections. St Pat used them to explain the Holy Trinity- 3 separate things that make up 1 whole.)

    Saturday: the ‘little people’ and all things associated with them (leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold) OR ‘little art’ - Inchies, Twinchies, Moos

    Sunday: a ‘bit of the blarney’ (snarkiest, jokes, etc) OR found poetry

    Monday: celebrations - elements of a celebration, you celebrating, reasons for celebrating, etc

    Tuesday: Celtic knots (examples of various knots, an easy celtic zentangle) OR potato prints (in honour of the humble potato - staple food of the Irish). That means that you cut the design into the potato, cover it with paint and then use it as your stamp - lots of fun, and messy!

    Wednesday: complete those cards laying forlorn and forgotten on your table

    Further inspirations:
    1) make cards using altered quotes from 'Princess bride, the movie' (I googled 'The Princess bride quotes' and 383 came up)

    2) make cards/ATCoins using symbols for healing &/OR protection (google 'symbols of protection and healing' and LOTS of different beliefs come up)

    3) make cards/ATCoins showing 'isolation'

    4) use those scraps you keep hoarding

    5)

    What IS an ATART?
    It’s an All Types of ART marathon where you can create art, done over the same time in each time zone. This thread will be our craft 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 as people are awake in different time zones.

    How to ask for a trade:
    When you see 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 and may be missed in all the chatter.

    NOTE: if you do make a trade, please be sure to send it 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 your compliment/comment 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 that includes “Copy image”
    2) Click on this
    3) Go to your post in the thread and hit Paste (Ctrl V)
    4) This allows you to add 10 images to your post
    OR
    Thumbnails (only 5 of these can be attached to a single post)
    1) at the bottom of a new post there is a ‘Go advanced’ button - click on this
    2) you will be taken to a new window, which will still show anything you have already written. In the top line of commands there is a paper clip- put your cursor over this and it will come up with the label ‘Attachments’
    3) left click on the paper clip and a 2nd new window will appear
    4) click on ADD FILES at the top and then click BROWSE. This will allow you to browse your computer and choose the images you wish to upload.
    5) a list of the images you have chosen appears at the bottom of your post.

    NEW TO ATARTS?
    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.

    IMPORTANT: REMEMBER TO PUT YOUR USERNAME ON THE BACK OF YOUR CARDS. You can’t get an iTrader if your trading partner doesn’t know who you are.

    Oh I want to do this, but my computer died and I won’t have a new one purchased and up and running for perhaps a week.
    As for ideas of themes: how about Irish scenery, especially those beautiful old castles?

    Thanks for the invite. I don't know how much I will get to play as I have 6 Grandkids coming on Thursday. I have lined up to have each of them do a Pour Paint on Friday. They will be here until Monday some of them. So I won't get time until then. Maybe I will get time to check in once and I while.

    Everyone have fun.

    What a bummer Jo! So frustrating when that happens.

    I might play, but I am leaving on the 19th to spend Easter with the grandbabies. That trip takes a lot out of me. Then I have company the next weekend. I will try to be on top of my "a-thon paperwork" so I can mail immediately. But I know if my muse kicks in I often need a few days to organize my trades, back cards and stuff envelopes. So if I do play people trading with me need a heads up that I may not get my trades mailed in a timely manner.

    Go to it gals! I will be watching and requesting but I won’t have the new computer until Monday or Tuesday so whatever I create won’t be scanned or seen until then.
