...doing a collage-a-thon on this site? i think they are a lot of fun but i am at a place where my space is limited so i don't trade with just anybody. having one here would make that easier for me. would anyone be interested?

How about the next weekend? I don't really go anywhere or do anything so I'm pretty open to all suggestions.

A CAT here would be very worthwhile. I'd play for sure. I might have time next weekend, Sat and Sun are open so far...there's a birthday in our family this weekend, not sure when the party is...?

I would like to participate! I don't really understand how they work though?

katilady

yea, i should explain that! here's how it works:

from 5PM friday YOUR time to 5PM sunday YOUR time make as many collaged atc's as possible. load them to the gallery and to the thread and trade with other folks who are playing. they can be mixed media, and can have hand drawn elements but should def be collaged too. some folks prep backgrounds days in advance, but no collaging is actually allowed to happen until 5PM friday.

over on afa occasionally someone (usually nanner) will throw out a challenge--like make a collaged card about death, or something. whoever wants to play the challenge can but it isn't necessary and they're are no prizes.

you can trade your card with whomever you want, even those not playing, but most folks give dibs to those that are playing.

these events are popular on afa and are a lot of fun especially when there is a lot of banter in the thread. i thought it would be worthwhile to try here where the skill level is higher.

Yeah! I like that idea! I would be totally up for it :D If anyone has skype, we could have a conference call Bwahaha :)

The challenge idea sounds fun too..... I could post an image for people to try to work in to their card..... which brings up the question... does it have to be an ATC? or can we make anything bigger? (My collage ATCs SUCK lol)

katilady

i am not gonna stop you from working bigger, but the original idea was for atc's. it'd be the perfect time to practice them annie!

Ha, EQ...you won't be the lone ranger...I collage slowwwly and end up painting so much on top of them...it's hard to tell they're collages! I need the collage practice too.

Here's a collage I made during the CAT going on over at AFA this weekend...I'm trading it later as I'm going to reproduce it to use it as my halloween card to give to friends... :cute:

Katilady - I will definitely try to do this next weekend! I cut my fingertip pretty badly and couldn't really manage my scissors very well so didn't do anything for the AFA CAT this past weekend.

So, IATC CAT is now on my calendar!


The good news is that I didn't need stitches, got to wrap my finger in fancy purple and green bandaids (which have gathered lots of compliments and questions) and spent my arty time last week end painting many LARGE journal pages. It actually ended up being fun, just not what I'd planned.

I can send out a PM to all MMA members if you'd like. I'm sure I can do this in admin somehow. Just let me know what you want to announce re: date/time, details, etc.

katilady
10-20-2009, 04:49 PM
that's awesome amerasu. i did get a list from annie and i sent out a pm based on that, but another one couldn't hurt.

it'll be this weekend oct. 23 from 5PM to oct. 25 5PM. all times start at your local time zone. the goal is to collage and trade as many atc's as you can/want to in that time frame. they can be mixed media nad have hand drawn but must have collage elements.

AHA!! I'm interested. Have never partaken in one yet....but there's always a first, eh?
I do have a B.P. on Sun. and won't be here....soooooo....better try and get ready.
I'm like you Annie...I like bigger but will do the atc.

Oh....I'm getting ready ya'll!!! :jiggy: Here's a peek at my work/play area....LOTS of supplies....so happy to join you all....I was starting to get really boared and uninspired....this is just what I needed.
I asked our hostess if there was going to be a theme and she said it was going to be open and each of us could make challenges.

Muse....this is hard to describe for some artists. I have mine figured out and try very hard to stay in touch....control is wicked fun.
My muse is an entity.
She's a Fate....well, there's actually 3 Fates.
From Greek mythology the three Fates are Goddesses who control human life.
In my life they control my muse....artfulness....or artlessness.

CLOTHO; she spins the thread of life.
LACHESIS; she determines the length of the life thread.
and
ATROPOS; she cuts the thread of life.

I'm challenging everyone to make at least three cards based on these three Goddesses.
No cheating.....don't make your cards....just gather your ideas and materials so we can all have a jumping off point and get right into it at 5PM Friday....maybe!!!
Can you tell I'm too excited and extreme?

I'm hoping to play a bit this weekend, but it's pretty full, including a double date to Six Flags on Saturday! woot! I'm also painting the floor in my studio, so it's hard to get around in there. I'll come if I can though!

This sounds great! I won't be home Friday after 5 or a lot of the weekend either, but maybe I can find some time. I'm not sure about how to post cards to this thread though, being a newb I haven't done it yet. I'll give it a try and see what happens. Thanks!

You guys should get out the video cams and all hook up on Skype or something. Makes it more fun :)

Veterok.
10-23-2009, 01:53 PM
I was kinda thinking about it, too - I'll probably just make a video or two and post them to YouTube/here during this weekend. IF I'm not lazy.

we'd love to have you! it's pretty simple to post images. under the box to type messages is a button tha says 'go advanced'. click that and you'll be taken to a message box with a lot of options. one of those options is a button that looks like a paperclip. click that to add attachments.
