    Default Summer Art-a-thon - Aug 31-Sep 4, 2016 - Play Here!

    Summer Art-a-thon

    Open theme!
    Come one, come all!

    We start at 8am (your time zone) on Wednesday, August 31, 2016
    and go until 11 pm (your time zone) on Sunday, September 4, 2016.


    We've even included a list of possible themes in the first post to help get your brain going!

    YES, you can make cards in advance but don't post them until Wednesday, August 31!

    What is an art-a-thon?
    If this is your first art-a-thon, and you're not entirely clear on how things work, check out this video. Everything is the same except the Halloween part, and of course, the dates.

    Cards from previous Art-a-thons:

















    Cards by waughtercolors, itti, PurplePencil, CindyD, AnnD, Amerasu, Gracie O'Tripp, TempestStudios, TF Balding, renekunert, Halla, amberskyfire, Blanche

    Instructions:
    • Make as much art as you want all weekend long
    • Stick to your division (MMA or P&P). If you're in both, follow the Muse!
    • 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.

    BEST art only please! No rush jobs!


    MAILING CARDS: Please mail out your cards from the Art-A-Thon within 1-2 weeks. All trades should be received within 3 weeks.


    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

    How to Trade - Post your completed pieces to the gallery and/or here in this thread. When you see a card that you like, send a private message to the card creator and ask if they'd like to trade. Or you can post directly in the thread and ask. Exchange addresses, send off the card. Easy!

    List of possible themes!

    This list is the brainchild of WideEyedLife. You don't have to use these themes. If you want you can close your eyes and stick out your tongue at these themes. If you want you can hug theses themes, adopt them as your children, and feed them Cheetos and cupcakes made of joy. YOU DO YOU.

    *Naughty and/or Nice

    *It's alive!

    *Robot futures

    *Women in churches

    *Shoes, shoes, shoes

    *Portraits with personality

    *Twisted fairy tales

    *Fuzzy wuzzy things

    *Anthropomorphism with hats

    *Cute monsters

    *Scary or sweet

    *Scared s**tless

    *People wearing fruit

    *Animals wearing fruit

    *Opposites attract

    *Winkyn Blinkyn and Nod

    *Dungeon-esque

    *BIG eyes on anything makes it better!

    *"Ooo, ahh, I lost my bra!"

    *Whimsical Whatevers

    *Typographically yours

    *Upsetting, to say the least

    *Anything goes, after 1 am

    *Cliched but cute

    *Haunted scenes

    *Things your momma wouldn't show you

    *Sweet, docile, happy, happy, joy joy---or not.

    *From the sublime, to the ridiculous.

    Hit it!
    This ain't no disco
    And it ain't no country club either,
    This is I.A.
    All I wanna do is have some lurking
    I got a feeling I'm not the only one
    All I wanna do is have some lurking
    I got a feeling I'm not the only one
    All I wanna do is have some lurking
    Until the sun comes up over

    A little teaser of things to come! I started a card at work yesterday. This is a dragon skeleton drawn and inked in. When I get some time I will watercolor it. Vroom vroom, starting early!
    They call me Sandra

    I am no longer at the Hill View address

    Bookmarking this! I am hoping to participate as long as we don't go out of town. My partner is finally taking vacation that week.

    Perhaps I should start sketching cards soon, just in case...
    I'd love to trade art with you, please ask!

    I feel that I may need to forewarn people:

    Pokemon GO! has taken up a decent portion of my summer. So that might influence my cards a little. Or a lot.

    Ainslee, as far as I'm concerned you have a broken green light to GO with your Pokemon Go! There are so many damn cuties that light will never turn red!
