    Default End of the Year ART-A-THON! December 7 - 10, 2017

    Set this weekend aside! Don't make plans! Instead, join us for a weekend of creating and trading! This ART-A-THON is open to all members!

    Feel free to make cards in advance but don't post them til December 7th at 8:00 am in your time zone!

    END-OF-THE-YEAR-ART-A-THON Weekend
    We start at 8 am (your time zone) on Thursday, December 7th, 2017 and go
    until 11 pm (your time zone) on Sunday, December 10th, 2017.






    Cards by: EdensRainbow, KatieP, Grrrdjules, Joes Lines, TempestStudios, Waughtercolors, Maija, catpratt, SilverSweet


    AnnD made a video to explain how the Halloween-a-thons work, so if this is your first art-a-thon, look here! Just ignore the dates. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxyFeRdZWOo

    BEST art only please! No rush jobs!

    Instructions:
    • Create stuff all weekend, ANY theme - it's all open!
    • 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.



    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) Template attached
    • 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.

    When someone asks you for a trade, please pick from that artist's available cards first. This is an open and fun art-a-thon, not a "please make me xxxx before I will trade with you" custom card making art-a-thon.

    Exchange addresses, send off the cards. Easy!

    Thanks Erika! I’m super excited because I’m flying a few days earlier then my husband so I can meet Bluevioletz and Truthfulness_goesruthlessness from Instagram and have two art days. So I’m sure we will have a blast and hopefully make some art haha

    Haha my sister thinks I’m crazy for going to meet and stay with “internet peoples you’ve never met before, you’re crazy and I get all your art and supplies in the will right?”

    I know we will have a blast!!

    That's how you make new friends though! I've met so many of my online art friends over the years and it's been wonderful each time. We used to do big weekend get-togethers for trading but haven't in quite a few years. I miss them!

    Bookmarking and hoping I can participate! I have a family thing and will be out of town for almost half of it, but I so love these.
    I'd love to trade art with you, please ask!

    Subscribing and hopefully participating. Though with lack of a home computer/internet setup I'll likely have to keep posting Instagram links of what I make in the thread on days I don't work. |D
