Blog Candy!

Draw on Wednesday 15th August.....

A freebie.......



I've always loved how generous a lot of arty people are, with their advice, inspiration, and just general good-heartedness! In this vein, as a thankyou for all the people who've visited my blog and inspired me........ I've decided to give away some "Blog Candy". Thanks Michelle for telling me what this was actually called....something ELSE I didn't know!!! lol


If you'd like to have this piece of artwork, just leave a comment and please make sure that you leave your email address for me in the comments section....(or you can email your email address to me via the link on this page - just make sure you leave a comment too so I can keep track!).


I'll leave this page up for a week or so as I know not everyone is as blog-addicted as me and simply MUST check out everyones blog at least every couple of days!

The canvas is a 4" x 4" size.

Juanita Lanaux said...

Just beautiful! What talent. I want to be like you when I grow up! :)

Kathy L said...

Discovered your blog through posting on Claudines group. Have you ever thought about doing found art? I basically leave a piece of art each week in a location in northern Illinois. Other artists leave art all over the world! I think that by giving a piece of art away, however it is done, brings a smile to someones face...Maybe we can make the world a happier place, one smile at a time!

Not a bat to be seen,

adorned with gold.
a hand reached out,

Kelsey's art is now our candy,
Oh to win it would be dandy!

That's a beautiful piece of art that you're giving away! This is my first visit to your blog, and I love it and will check back again from time to time. These blogs can be addictive, can't they?

Laurie said...

I spent HOURS last night looking at all of your ATC's and I was simply amazed and in awe of your artistic style and your work!
I just found this blog of yours and am enjoying everything on it and can't wait to finish reading everything. I see that you're giving away some "blog candy" and of course, I'd love to be the proud new owner! What is the name of this beautiful piece of art? It looks like it may be called "adornment?"
This would make a perfect birthday present for me, since my b-day is this Sunday, August 19th! :-)
Will visit often, as I have bookmarked your sites as my faves!
P.S. Where do you teach??
