March 2009 Virtual Sketch Date Reference

This month's reference was supplied by Stacy Rowan. These birds showed up for a meal at the feeder just in time to become our subject for March. A larger version of the reference can be found here.

Following the normal schedule, all entries are due by Saturday, March 28th and should be posted on your blog and/or on the VSD Flickr group. If you are posting your entry on Flickr please use the tag VSD_Mar2009.

In a continuing effort to find the best way to provide links to each and every VSD entry, we are going to try something new this month for the results post. Several participants mentioned "Mr. Linky" as a way for each of you to enter your own links on the results page. So we decided to give it a shot.

What you need to know...
  • The results post will be posted on Monday, March 23rd.
  • After you have posted your entry on your blog, come here and enter your name and the URL for your VSD blog post into the Mr. Linky widget. Then press enter. (As always, please link directly to your specific VSD post and not to your blog's main page.)
  • The Mr. Linky widget will be removed from the results page on Sunday, March 29th.

When you enter your information into the Mr. Linky widget, it will automatically create the link list. (Keeping our fingers crossed here.)

Please check back here in the middle of the week if you post your result during the first couple of days. If for some reason the Mr. Linky widget does not work as expected, we will update the Results post with further instructions.

Again, thank you for your patience as we experiment to find the best process for running the Virtual Sketch Date. Happy sketching!

(My apologies to all subscribers who received the post before it was completed. I was trying to start a new line of text and managed to publish the post instead. Sorry for any inconvenience it caused!)
