  1. Last time some of the Instagram winners posted 3 or 4 collages showing several days worth of drawings at once, rather than posting one drawing a day. I just want to make sure this is ok this time as well. I felt like I was spamming my followers last time and was a bit bummed to notice that the winners hadn’t posted every single day.

    1. Hi Jen – You can post collages that show the various days.

  2. Is this class no longer available on creativebug? Thank you!

  3. Hello. impressive job. I did not anticipate this.
