    Smile 2017 Request for Prize Donations

    The prize bin is getting a bit low, so I thought I'd ask for contest donations.

    I see the contests as the place where members can really show off their skills and talent! I hope that it is an event that pushes people to do outstanding work. As such, I have tried to give outstanding prizes wherever I can!

    I am always looking for quality art supplies for hand drawn, painted and mixed media art. Studio/artist quality supplies are great.

    Other ideas: gift certificates for online art classes, subscriptions to digital art magazines (remember we're international, so paper subscriptions won't work to well), things we all use like atc sleeves, blanks, frames, etc. are great.

    IDEAS

    Prismacolor colored pencils
    Postage stamps
    stencils (atc size designs)
    Tim Holz products from Ranger., especially distressed inks and markers
    Pen & Ink gear


    I can also take Paypal donations if you prefer. Just PM me for info. On these I will cc: Carole Cadek so the donation to the site is noted

    If you have other suggestions for prizes, feel free to post them in this thread.

    Thanks again for all your generosity and support!

    Some of us have a bunch of dies, so we could cut out in high quality of watercolor paper or out of cardboard (tags dies or ornament dies or...)

    And I would it appreciate to have a contest for Other Mail Art The number of these art friends fans is minimum just as the ATC Art Friends.

    Deb, I take a lot of online classes so I have a small list of teachers I highly recommend. Most of them also offer mini classes that cost between $25 - $35 which would be keeping within the budget for these prizes. Here are some classes in this price range.
