Well, I know you guys won't mind if I tell you that regretfully I have decided to combine the November and December giveaways - my art time is really under pressure at the moment and it will give me a little time to catch up.
I really did start this on time for November, but I have been fiddling with it for ages whenever I can get a minute in the art room. However I have decided it is finished and I had better upload it NOW so that it can get to someone in time for Christmas!!
Well this giveaway is a mixed media canvas. I have been doing the wonderful Art and Healing Course (more posts on that to follow when I get a minute - I haven't been completely idle!!) and did this little Christmas figure as a practice piece and liked her so much I thought I would create a background for her. There are a lot of layers (so loads of drying time!) and it ended up even grungier than usual because for one I made a glaze with black acryclic rather than dark blue - I wouldn't mind but I did the same thing the other week and re-sorted my paints to stop it happenning!! The trials of art in artificial light. Still think I managed to save it. Collage, image transfer and stamping onto tissue have all been used here (I find stamping onto a canvas is horrrendously unpredictable, using tissue paper helps that out a lot and if it disintegrates you get some added texture!)
I love the sentiment I have used, I think with all the hustle bustle that surrounds the festive season we forget to enjoy ourselves and celebrate the season on a day to day basis. Despite being really busy, I'm trying my best to keep a smile on my face and not get stressed - doing OK so far lol!!
Right, how to enter - it's simple!! Just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered in to the draw. As this is a Christmas item and we are already a long time between giveaways I think this one will have to have a very short tunaround. So the closing date will be 9.00 pm on Tuesday 9th December. Yep, that's right, just a week, but it's because I know I will have time to get to the PO on the Wednesday morning - so if you are entering and I don't already know you, don't forget to check back in case I need your addy!!
Inernational players welcome but receipt before Christmas can not be guaranteed (sorry!) as last postal dates are probably Monday. Feel free to link from your own blogs and Happy Christmas Season everyone!!
