I can hardly believe it but on November 27th
Ink Stains will be turning 5!!!
When I started Ink Stains, I never dreamed it would turn into what it has today.
I only knew that I wanted to share my knowledge and passion for art with others.
I believe I have done that
I hope you all have had as much fun as I have!
To celebrate this special occasion on November 27th
I am going to host my very first
Blog Hop/On-line Art Festival!
Some people have asked me what is an on-line art festival?? Well, folks don't have blogs but would still like to join in the fun of sharing their art. So, in addition to the linked blogs you would normally see on a traditional Blog Hop I will also be sharing photos of creations by blog-less artists here on Ink Stains at the same time! That way nobody will be left out. Hence the Art Festival!
What is the blog hop/art festival focus going to be?????
Well, I decided that it would be fun if I got lots and lots of people to alter Altoids Mint Tins (or any similar small tins of any shape)!!! I have already invited many Ink Stained friends to share their art with you but I thought it would be fun to open the hop/festival up to everyone!!!
The hop/art festival will be held November 27th which should give you plenty of time to come up with an idea, find a tin and then let your creative muse do his/her thing!
When time gets closer I will post a "Link" tool for those of you with blogs. All you have to do is copy & paste it at the bottom of your post sharing your tin. The "Link" tool will do the rest (it shows everyone participating in the hop on the bottom of your post).
For those without blogs, simple e-mail me photos anytime between now and November 26th. I will then add them all to the Anniversary post on the 27th along with the blog hop links for all to see, love & appreciate!
Altoids Tin Give-A-Way!!
Now, to help kick it off and get you in the mood I have 6 tins sitting here filled with assorted goodies that I am ready to send out to 6 lucky readers!
All I ask is that you alter the tin in some way and share either a post on your blog or send me photos to add to the Art Festival.
If you'd like a shot at winning one of these tins simply post a comment and some way to contact you if you win.
I will draw the winners next Saturday - October 6th!
Good Luck Everyone!!
Hope to see you and your art there!!
Below are a few of the tins I've altered in the past to spark your creativity and get you in the altering mood!
