{avenue of art}🌼 week one entries + 2nd prompt

hiii oreos! how was your day? mine was pretty good. most of it was spent in school anyway, but it’s fun when i’m with my friends😇

today i’ll be sharing the results of the first week of {avenue of art} it’s a part of the summer blog contests maggie and i are hosting this year! head on over to maggie’s blog to read about summer of stories. and here for more info about the contests!

SIGN-UPS FOR BOTH CONTESTS ARE NOW CLOSED.

we have 20 participants in total, and 11 of them are participating in the avenue of art! now, let’s get straight to reviewing and the results of week one. the prompt was to incorporate the colors of summer into a finger painting~


to save me some media space (that i’m already running out of), i’ll be adding all of these in a pinterest board😅 first, let’s have a quick refresher of the rules:

  1. Bloggers aged 10 through 20 can participate
  2. You’ll have to share your email address, since that’s how you’ll be sending your entries. But the email won’t be shared, it’ll stay private.
  3. Make sure you stay within the word count limit mentioned if you’re participating in the Summer of Stories
  4. Each task is worth 5 points, some may be worth 10. if you follow all the rules, you get an additional +5 points.
  5. Every week, Maggie and I pick our favourite submission as Judge’s Pick and they get an extra +3 points
  6. You cannot send in more than one submission unless there are 2 challenges/prompts that week.
  7. Digital art is not counted.
  8. Do not copy other’s work, you can be inspired but take your own spin on it!
  9. No matter what place you get in the contest, don’t be mad at others
