Journals and Postcards



July is my 1st anniversary of blogging about my art.  To celebrate and say thank you I am going to have a giveaway.  It will be in two parts.  The main giveaway is an A5 size journal with 5 spreads.  I will do a spread every week till the end of the month and any who has left a comment on the PPF post over the month will go into the draw.  So, if you leave a comment every week you could have 5 chances of winning!  Below is the cover and the first spread.  The top corner is empty at the moment as I might put the winner’s name there or the words ‘Be Inspired!’


This spread uses a quote that has inspired me for many years, don’t know where it comes from, or even if I have made it up!  “How do you know whether you are a dragonfly dreaming that you were a person”  As a child I use to dream that I was a dragonfly flitting about the place!



The second give away is two postcards will be sent to one person each from PPF and Sunday Sketches, as they were the two first link ups that I entered.  So, if you leave comments on both posts you have two chances of winning.  For this I have decided to let the winners choose their postcards.  I will over the week end put them on a separate page for the winners to choose from.

I have gone a little crazy over these.  I love doing them.  Here are the first four.  I will add more over the weekend on the special page.





It is strange, for the Icad challenge I am doing 3 x 5 in cards, these are on 6 x 4 in card and feel so much bigger, it threw me a bit.  When I took part in the Artist in Blogland’s postcard swap I really struggled with the small size.  How things change.  I really like small now.  Next you will see me doing ATC’s!!!
Talking of the Icads, um er, I haven’t done any yet, will have a bash at them over the weekend and link them to Daisy’s linkup or put them on my Flickr photo stream.

Well that’s all I have for you this week, have a great week creating wonderful art.  (Remember to leave a comment if you want to be in the draw.)

  20. Wow I love your journal pages! You know I'm a big fan anyway ;-)
    Imagine Sharon flitting about as a dragon fly, how amazing, really love that!

    Sizes can be a challenge to adjust to, I felt so too when I had a small size in my hands to paint on.

    Happy PPF and I would surely be happy about any little piece of your art
