Halloween and Autumn Art-a-Thon

This weekend I have been playing in the Halloween and Autumn Art-a-Thon at  It runs through at least Tuesday.  An "Art-a-Thon" is an online event in which artists make art at the same time - often with challenges or themes, and then usually make trades with each other.   

I have had a busy weekend so far ... so I have only managed to make a few ATCs.  The skull above was drawn with Indian ink pens and sparkly gel pens, with a sparkly flower decal added to the eye.
The next 2 ATCs were drawn with Indian ink pens and colored pencils.  Pretty basic Halloween/Autumn images.
This final ATC is cut into a house shape (seems to be a popular trend right now).  I collaged printed scrapbook papers and other cut images, added some rickrack trim and a flat backed embellishment I had on hand.
The most common type of art going on right now is collaged ATCs, however ALL types of art are welcome including drawing, painting, stitchery, quilting, paper mache, jewelry, etc... All sizes are welcome from inchie sized on up.  You don't have to make trades - "show and tell" is a big part of the Art-a-Thon.  Just good fun with friends around the globe.
