Also, please try to avoid controversial statements and comments when posting in the group. If you have any problems, tell the admin team, and trust that we will deal with it.
~Info on optional Extra Contests will be posted in the groups, so look out for those (highlighted with bright yellow) Most contests will have a special album to post your entries.

Check the group “Announcements” section throughout the month for challenge Info posts, sponsor info, and contest details. The ITP Info Album for the month will be pinned there in the main group.
Daily Entries are posted to the “Discussion” section in the Main Inspiration to Paint group here: www.facebook.com/groups/Inspirationtopaintbyabby
Questions, extra photos or videos, and other non-challenge related posts should be added in the Inspiration to Paint Family group here: www.facebook.com/groups/InspirationtoPaintFamily/
Please remember to be KIND to others and to YOURSELF!!! Putting down your own work also affects others who are inspired by you! No need to apologize for a “bad” design or look for faults…look for the positive things, or lessons you learned instead. 🙂 ❤
The whole point of the group is to INSPIRE you to practice and paint as often as possible! So if you miss a day (or two, or five….), keep on painting and posting, as often as you are able for the month!
Your hashtags for the month should be included on every daily post. It is helpful to save them to a “note” on your phone or computer, so it’s easy to copy and paste them into your post each day.
For this month, the Official hashtags are:
#(Your first name and your March participation number) with NO spaces. For example, mine is #Marie9
#(Your hometown or area and FacePainter) with NO spaces. Example: #ChicagoFacePainter
#CraftyStockUK (for our March Sponsor)
