Winter Shop Sales!

Hi all!  As the holidays are approaching, many people like to support artists and small shops.  I know many of our group members have online shops to sell their art/crafts/miscellaneous items.

Winter is a great time to add a discount to encourage shoppers!

** Wouldn't it be fun to see what everyone is offering now in their shops? ***

In the comments section add a link to your online shop.
  • Include a short description of what you sell
  • Add a discount code if you have one!

For example, mine is:

Marcia Beckett Etsy Shop:  I sell prints of my mixed media artwork, lots of vintage ephemera, collage packs and postcards.   For the months of November and December, you can use the discount code:  Winter2013 to receive 25% off everything in my shop! 

I can't wait to peruse your stores!

Scavenger Hunt Challenge: Numbers

Here are all the details!
  • Each month will be a different Scavenger Hunt theme!  
  • You will have the whole month of November to participate.  Link up an entry that fits the scavenger hunt.  The linky will remain up until Dec. 15.
  •  How is it a Scavenger Hunt?  You can interpret the challenge to be like a scavenger hunt.  
           1)  Take a photo that fits the theme
           2)  Make a new artwork inspired by the topic
           3)  Find an old artwork or blog post that incorporates the theme
           4)  Create a tutorial or respond in another way related to the theme.

The theme for the month of November is:  NUMBERS

Here are some NUMBER paintings I made a couple of years ago.

Here is an intriguing artwork I found on Pinterest, by ArtPropelled.

How about a fun art journal page using your favorite number?  Via Stampington & Company

Are you familiar with this famous work of art by Charles Demuth (I Saw the Figure of 5 in Gold)?

I can't wait to see what you come up with this month.  Our first Scavenger Hunt Challenge, DOORS and WINDOWS, was amazing!  Check out all the fabulous artwork linked up in that post!
