    Impromptu ATART now (7 - 12 July)

    Hi all! I am having some free days (read: my daugter has something else to do) and I decided to host an Impromptu ATART. You can start when you read this.

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

    This is the Impromptu ATART from now to July 12th. It has already started .

    Sniisk is hosting. If you have questions, please put them in the thread. Answering PMs may take longer.

    Start times, NOW! This a-thon will end when it's starting to look like Monday in the last timezone. 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 because no one did plan this to happen . Feel free to give challenges to other people during the ATART anyway .

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

    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.

    Hi sniisk and ATC friends,
    Delighted to hear that you are hosting an A-Thon.
    I haven’t done art or posted in a long time (health issues and “just life” stuff).
    I hope to create something for this A-Thon.... if not I will enjoy following along
    Just have fun with your art!

    I am barely awake in Arizona, drinking cup of coffee #1. I tend to read on my computer and drink my coffee.

    Only the first cup, CQ5? My dog got me up at 3:15 (he's not feeling so great, poor little guy) so I just finished my 4th cup! I normally only have 3, and 1/2 decaf, so I'm feeling very creative this morning! May be down for the count by this afternoon, or not

    Bookmarking - I'll try to make at least one or two cards.

    I just walked my dog and my coffee is brewing. Can't wait to have my 1st cup!
