    Default 2018 Spring Art Athon! March 8th through 11th!

    2018 Spring Art Athon!
    March 8th through March 11th

    It's that time again (even if it doesn't feel like it everywhere), Spring is on the way! And y'all know what that means, right? It's time for the Spring Art Athon!!! Everyone is invited---& the theme is wide open, so bring your muses & your favorite art supplies & let's play!

    When do we start? Thursday, March 8th at 8am (your time zone)!
    When does it end? Sunday, March 11th at 11pm (your time zone)!


    Feel free to make art in advance, but don't post it until March 8th.




    (Really cool springy art that wasn't made for an athon, but totally could've been made by: ZhouZhou, Pochadiva, Pabkins, AnnD, Kosmicgirl & Catpratt)

    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 that our very own awesome AnnD made. Everything is the same except the Halloween part, and of course, the dates.


    Instructions:
    •Make art all weekend
    •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.

    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
    •Hands


    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!

    I think there is some sort of radar up to know when I'll have house guests! Which I will have next weekend. Maybe I'll work on some pieces this weekend, to try to post and trade next weekend. Is there anyone out there who would be interested in NON-atc art? skinnies, twinchies, postcards, tip ins? I kinda wanna make some other shapes right now

    Too much sugar for Zoombie, or too little sugar? He's cool, no matter. I really like the flies, ha!
