    Default Art-a-Thon: June 15-17, 2012

    Mark your calendars for the next Art-a-thon! All weekend long, we'll be creating and trading incredible mail art, and we want you to join us! This ART-A-THON is open to all members!


    BEST art only please! No rush jobs!


    We start 5 pm (your time zone) on Friday, June 15, 2012 and go until 11 pm (your time zone) on Sunday, June 17, 2012.


    Instructions:
    • Create stuff all weekend, any theme!
    • Stick to your division (MMA or P&P). If you're in both, do whatever you want.
    • Post your creations here in the thread and/or in the gallery.
    • Chat on the thread if you'd like.
    • Ask for and/or accept trades. Don't be shy.


    What to make?
    • ATCs
    • Inchies / Twinchies (1 x 1 or 2 x 2)
    • Chunky pages (4 x 4)
    • Skinny pages (3 x 7)
    • Gothic arches (4 x 6)
    • Postcards (4 x 6 or 5 x 7)
    • Bookmarks (2 x 6 or 3 x 7)
    • Moos (1 x 2.75, the same size as Moo brand business cards)
    • Bottle caps (1" circles)

    How to Trade
    Post your completed pieces to the gallery and/or here in this thread. When you see a card you like, send a private message to the card creator to request a trade. Or you can post directly in the thread and ask. Exchange addresses and send off the card. How easy is that?

    Even Considering Not Playing?
    That would make you a sillypants. Check out the eye candy from previous a-thons. How can you not join us?!

    Amerasu, Joes Lines, catpratt, oddbreed, Pippin, Cindyjob, Kiddio55, Dragonfly malinmaskros, waughtercolors, skyelance, grrrdjules, mlydon, maija, onanymous, MoonDance, Siren, EdensRainbow, EraserQueen, goodmorningstarshine, AnnD, TabLynn, sabrinalouisemiller, waterblossoms

    So true, Juli! You do not begin to want me standing outside your window with a boombox over my head.

    So glad you're all playing / trying to play!!!

    Yaaay! Skyelance, we sometimes have themes, but this one is open. I have this crazy feeling a few people will be making moos.

    Moooooooooo.
