Congratulations to Denise Cerro, the winner of this week’s book giveaway. I’ll be mailing out her book, Painted Pages, by Sarah Ahearn Bellemare, very soon. Denise, who is an accomplished painter and fellow sewist, wrote, “Judy, this looks like such a fun book . . . Iâ€™d like to get my hands on this book to open me up to a little more fun, freedom and frivolity in my creative life . . . which tends to be more in the realistic realm. Good luck to all that enter.” When Denise sent me her address, I was pleased to hear she and her daughter-in-law will be looking through the book to find some things they can do together. I love that idea!
For the rest of you who did not win the book, I’d like to suggest you take advantage of some other mixed media inspiration offered through an Artistcellar blog hop that begins today. Besides being exposed to some wonderful ideas from some great artists, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for four new map art stencils designed by Jill K. Berry. Click on the link in the previous sentence to see the stencils. The first stop in the Map Art Blog Hop & Giveaway, which is on the Artistcellar site, shows you what you can do with these beautiful art stencils that are perfect for collage work or art journaling. Each day of the blog hop, members of the design team will post stencil ideas on the blog. Each artist in the blog hop has different requirements for the stencil drawing, so make sure you visit each blog and read through to the end of the post on the designated day.
