I hope that all of the lovely Mom’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s day? We had a nice gathering here – it rained so we put up a tent in the backyard but ended up being inside most of the time. My Mom was sick and unable to attend but through the wonders of technology we were able to “Facetime” with her on my daughter-in-law’s i-pad! My Mom was able to see her great grandkids which made her happy!
Hooray! It’s time again for another giveaway at Casa Violette! Rather than keep giving away my book Journal Bliss I thought it would be nice to give away another artist’s book. This time i bought Mary Beth Shaw’s wonderful book called Flavor for Mixed Media. I thought you would enjoy this book using a metaphor of recipes and cooking to describe mixed media art. Mary Beth uses rich layers and textures to create clever concoctions. She even utilizes “icing” in some of her creations. How fun is that?
So in this giveaway you’ll find Mary Beth’s book, one of my prints of your choice and 6 of my “Be who you are” postcards!
I will be drawing a name on Friday May 17 rather than on Monday as Mr. G and i are going away so he can build a kayak (he’s taking a workshop) on the Oregon Coast. So if you’ll like to enter my contest please let me know what mixed media technique you would like to learn – and if you don’t want to learn anything new you can post that too! Please post here in the comments section!
Love, Violette xo
