Accepted! You'll be in Milkysplash's group. I'm going to go tell them now and invite you to the mentoring hub. You can look back at page 6 (I think) for the information about camp, and then page 8 (I think) for today's theme!

Hey! Back in old bootcamp, we used to post all banners here. It was great because we could see everything and you could share your work, but it got very cluttered!

Don't miss out on this: go check out other people's work in the mentor hub. Get ideas and leave them compliments in their profile comments (not the mentor comments - that's for mentors).

Enjoy!

Welcome back to BBBB! Hope you enjoyed yesterday! Our third theme is (drumroll please)….

Instruments!

There are so many different instruments that you could take inspiration from today! Will you make your banner about music in general or an instrument you play? We can't wait to see!

The requirements for this banner are just to take on yesterday's feedback. Try to take risks and challenge yourself, and make sure you beat yesterday's target.

There are lots of things to think about to help spark your imagination:
- Will this banner be minimal, or will you fill it with stuff?
- What inspiration do you have?
- How will you make the important parts stand out? What will you do to help the text be readable?
- Could you make this with a real-world “customer” in mind? For example, a shop on the forums. Remember, if you do a real place, make sure it doesn't give away anything about you (like doing the café next to your house or something similar).
- What size will your banner be?
- What is the banner for (a shop, a scratcher, a company, or something else?)

Inspo Banners Still stuck? Take a look at some examples from bees and buzzy bee alumni! Please don't copy (you won't get anything out of bootcamp if you copy), though inspiration is fine!




Notes:
- Post your banner for today in the same place it was posted yesterday, replying to your mentor's first comment. This means that they will be notified that you have posted and you won't be missed. If they don't mark it straight away, please remember that they are not robots. There is no need to ask them about it anywhere else - they can see your banner and will mark it when they have time.
- Please try to complete your banner today - it means that you can get onto the others without any backlog. If you don't, please don't stress: just try to catch up or give this one a miss if you are short on time and we will hopefully get to your feedback soon.
- If it's still Tuesday in your timezone, no need to complete it until Wednesday: remember that (most of the) mentors won't be awake/marking yet anyway so make sure you sleep!

Post your banner in the mentoring hub when you finish it for feedback from your mentor. Good luck!
The next theme will be released tomorrow so check back then!

There should be a rounded square with the clolour on it -click on that and chnage the colour

offically outlasting five pms - larry


Hope decided to “pemenantly borrow” my siggy idea- XD



(That exists now. I’m back in requests. Yay)




Just your average forumer trying to get back into requests~

If you made it down here, if something's hard, rember, it's not rocket science.

It works on the text box in canva too - unless your asking for size
