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 April participation number) with NO spaces. For example, mine is #Marie9 Note: Find your participation number in the Facebook message you were sent when you signed up.
#(Your hometown or area and FacePainter) with NO spaces. Example: #ChicagoFacePainter
