Let’s Get Arty! Giveaway

A question I get asked a bit is, “Do you paint on anything besides cookies?”  and the answer is, “Not as often as I’d like.”  I’m going to remedy that very soon with this awesome multi-media kit from DecoArt.  It comes with everything you need to make these whimsical works of art seen below.  I can’t wait to play and get paint on my fingers!

Whether you are Picasso or you don’t think you could manage a stick figure, this is the ideal project to flex those creative muscles.  So if you don’t mind getting a little messy…  DecoArt sent me an extra kit to send to a winner.  We could even create our projects together via Skype!  Play date!

The kit comes with everything you’ll need to create your own little masterpiece:

  • Full sizes of DecoArt’s popular Gesso and a full 4-oz of the new Americana Decoupage that you’ll use again & again!
  • Free sample of the many new 2012 Americana colors including Red Alert & Margarita!
  • Lara’s Crafts 5×6″ Wooden Postcard Surface
  • Americana Stencil
  • Paper pack featuring some of Canvas Corp’s newest designs of paper

Watch this great video tutorial by mixed media artist Bethany Kartchner.  It shows step by step how to use the supplies and I love how quickly this creative project comes together, and yes… I love how she uses her fingers to spread the paint.  ha!

And to answer the question of “Do you ever paint on canvas?”  Here are some of my permanent, non-edible paintings:

So let’s get painting!  If you would like to win DecoArt’s all inclusive kit to make a fun multi-media piece of art just comment below and I will randomly pick a winner on Monday, April 8th.  Best of luck and happy painting!  Thank you DecoArt for always carrying the best art supplies and for this awesome giveaway!

The boring stuff:

  • One comment per customer please.

  8. You are just oozing with talent girl! I am not a painter but I had to pop in to say I am in awe of your paintings! And your phone is calling to me…it is incredible!

  9. Thank you for sharing other forms of your art with us. I always love to see the diversity of talent that many artists have in their tool boxes! Especially love the little girl on the beach. Well done! And, as a crafty person who has been lean in the inspiration department of late, I would love to have a creative play date with you. I even live nearby, so no shipping and perhaps even an in-person session could occur! However it goes, thanks so much for all you share with us in the creative expression arena.

  10. I would love to win this. I have always considered myself "art-challenged" and need to overcome that block! Your work is amazing!

    I painted your roses on my cookies for the first time yesterday. It is not as pretty but, it kinda looks like a rose. Janet S. clawd1a1@yahoo.com

    Your canvas paintings are amazing~ To answer the question, Yes I would paint on canvas and the end result can be hung in a room (unlike the painted cookies would just be stolen, eaten, disappear into someone's stomach~ ) 🙂
