Me and Alexandra (from @alexandra_plans) are celebrating our 1 year anniversary for the #doodlewithus Instagram challenge and we're inviting you to celebrate with us and take part in our #doodlewithus challenge for May. This past year has been incredible and we'd like to thank everyone who took part in the monthly challenges and has made the #doodlewithus Instagram Challenge so big and well known! There has been some incredible doodles and drawings and this comes to show how much talent there is out there. :)
Because we wanted to make it a bit special, we decided to turn it into a doodling competition for the chance to win some really cool prizes. The winner will get 1 pack of the Pelikan soft coloured pencils (that I love!) and 1 pack of Tombow Dual Brush markers.
It's going to be 31 days of doodles that will hopefully get you to be creative and have fun! The theme of May's prompts is 'Party Time', and I seriously can't wait to start drawing!!!
As we did before, all the doodles are part of one big comprehensive picture. Imagine each day to be one piece of the puzzle. So, at the end of the month you will have one big doodle picture! :)
If you decide to follow this way, you'll have to create a table with 5x6 +1 boxes and you shouldn't add the days on the top. You can also make the boxes and dates in pencil, if you don't want the lines to obscure the end result. It's totally up to you.
Of course, if you prefer to draw the doodles in the traditional way, that's absolutely fine as well. The important thing is to have fun!
You can also download a free printout with the daily prompts here.
For you to take part in the competition you have to:
- Follow me (Christina) @christina77star and Alexandra @alexandra_plans on Instagram..
- Draw something according to the day's prompt. You can take a photo of it, and share it with us on Instagram.
- At the end of the month you have to upload a picture on Instagram with all the doodles together (either in a comprehensive picture or separately)
- Don't forget to add the hashtag #doodlewithusinmay and spread the word.
- Whoever has the most likes on Instagram by 11:59pm EST on the 1st of June 2017 will be the winner.
- The competition is open internationally.
We're excited to see what you'll share, and good luck!
Thank you for joining in!
