For every design you post (and yes, you may post more than one version of the same page) your name will be entered into a random drawing for one of the following prizes:
1. A Sakura Goody Basket!
2. A set of the new Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play books: Birds & Butterflies, Expressions of Faith, and the mini “Perfectly Portable Pages” Expressions of Faith.
If you post two designs, you’ll have two chances to win; if you post five designs, you’ll have five chances to win. The prizes winners will be selected at random; the pieces to include in the new book will be selected by my editor and me.
Although it is fine to simply color, what sets Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern & Play apart from all of the other coloring books on the market is that there is room on each page to add your own patterns and special touches before coloring. Therefore I’m looking for people who can add patterning (and/or other enhancements) as well as applying color.
IMPORTANT STUFF TO KNOW:
1. You will need to post your creations by end of day Sunday, August 30th. This date is not flexible, as the book is going to press the following week!
2. We will be only be able to include three of the five downloadable designs, and will select the three designs which show the most variety of coloring and patterning techniques, so don't be afraid to try different things. The more you do the better your chance to be included in the book or win a prize!3. VERY IMPORTANT: PUT YOUR NAME, e-dress and phone number on each design before you scan or photograph it!
4. Post your images in the new Zenspirations® Create, Color, Pattern, Play Facebook Group and after you post them please add them to the appropriate photo album (Yes, this means you'll be posting the same thing twice; once on the wall and once in the album). You can get to the albums by clicking the Photos button underneath the imagine banner (see image above).
5. If your art is selected, you’ll need to send my publisher a high-res scan (300 dpi) or be able to overnight the original art so they can scan it, and you'll need to sign a Permission-to-Publish form.
6. Because the books will not be printed on paper which accepts wet media, please DO NOT use watercolors or any other type of wet media. Color pencils, gel pens, markers and crayons are all fine.
8. Artists whose work is selected will be given credit in the book, and will receive two free copies of the book when it is published.
9. Since I always like opening doors for young talent, I’d be happy for you to share this info with any promising art students (or fellow artists) you know who would like to have their work published.
10. You can e-mail me (email@example.com) if you have any questions: please put “ZENSPIRATIONS® COLORING ENTHUSIAST QUESTIONS” in the subject line.

While I suspect that these pages will keep you busy for a while, if you are looking for more opportunities to Color, Create, Pattern & Play, Amazon is having a sale on Zenspirations® Inspirations. It's usually $9.99, but is selling right now for $6.77.
Happy Coloring... I am really looking forward to seeing your creativity in action!
