"Artful Thank You" Giveaway




I have a confession to make. I just don't get blog hopping as often as I'd like. My time commitments have shifted over the last few months making it difficult to fit everything into a week that I'd like. I very much miss seeing everyone's artwork and I do apologize. As a thank you to each and every one of you who visits my blog and supports me with your kind words, I would like to thank you by inviting you to enter my draw for this altered journal. I used the Sarah Whitmire technique to create it. All you have to do to be entered in the draw is to leave a comment on this post. I'll draw a name next Sunday afternoon and mail it to the winner.

I am suspecting bubble wrap was used on this one? It is so springy! I always look forward to seeing my first blue bird in the Spring. You put alot of work in this and it's lovely.

Ohhhhhhh Heather, what a very generous giveaway, I saw this journal after you took the class and it is gorgeous. Just don't feel like you "have" to visit all the time, you have so many fans it would be impossible to get to them every week :)

Wow! I'd leave a comment even without the drawing. This is so pretty. Great colors, and lots of fun textures.

What did you use for the spots? A stamp of some sort, or bubblewrap? And what is the "Sarah Whitmore" technique? I want to try!

I know exactly how you feel. I think I have only about 1000 entries to catch up on for all the blogs I like to follow. Beautiful covers!

Val Foster said...

Oh how cool, a chance to win a piece of your exquisite and beautiful art. I'm totally on board with that! I, like you, feel guilty, (well anyway I do) that I don't have the time to visit other blogs and leave comments as much as I'd like. Perhaps I should consider doing a blog giveaway too. It's food for thought.
