    ATART on August 19-23

    Hi all! It's been quite quiet here again. Let's have an ATART and keep mail busy .

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

    This is the (Impromptu) ATART on August 19-23.

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

    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.

    Daily challenges (optional):
    1. Finish a card that has been waiting for that way too long time
    2. Make a zentangle
    3. Use in one card at least three items you have received in a trade (papers, embellisments etc.)
    4. Use a brad or an eyelet in your creation
    5.

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

    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.

    Love your reasoning! XD
    Too quite... hmm, what to do... right-o, we need an a-thon!

    I'll try and play a bit. Still have the prompts from the Challenge Hunt that I didn't get to...
    Hugs, Sarah

    I'm looking in my office at a zentangle feather I think I got from an ATART made by Evalia. It brightens my soul when I see it. I agree it's time to do another

    Earlier this morning, I was hoping for another ATART. I had so much fun in the last one. And this timing is perfect, since I start teaching at my university next week. I'm in! Thank you, Sanna, for hosting!

    Here are my first cards...all ATC size, all watercolor. I want to thank Seascape131 for directing me to Arches watercolor paper, which I just started using and which is a fantastic paper to use for painting. Also I hope she doesn't mind that I copied her beach scene style. I have been to all of these places.
