Henna Drawing Contest!
Jaye Martin Group (JMG) will choose up to five simple drawings for use in henna evangelism. Those with wiinning original designs will be paid $50 for each one.
Selected designs should follow these guidelines:
- Submissions should be one design per page, 8 1/2" x 11", in PDF or scanned format. If selected, originator agrees to send the original document, paint, publisher, or other file.
- Design should be no larger than 3" x 6" (actual size) and no smaller than 2" x 3".
- Pattern should be simple enough to be reproduced in henna.
- The henna pattern should tell the gospel story. Two examples would be to use the HeartCall method (heart, cross, & arrow) or the Gifted2go concept (empty box, cross in box, and bow). However, any simple design that communicates the gospel will be considered.
- Designs should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight, August 20, 2011.
- The gospel presentation does not have to be included but if the design follows a certain verse or format, that can be included in the email or on the design page.
- Winners will be notified by September 1, 2011.
- Winners will be listed on this blog: http://jayemartin.blogspot.com/.
- Designs become the property of JMG.

Just to get you started, here are some ideas that might be converted into a henna pattern:
