I'm On A Roll with The Second BLOG Giveaway

Yup....you heard it here first. I am doing another BLOG giveaway. What to do? What to do? And here is the item....a handmade altered art journal/book for yours truly made by moi!

Now....I did not make the book. I found it...at a retired art store (so I repurposed it) by taking it all apart, restitching it together and then altering the cover to something completely different. This is called mixed media art, and more specifically altered art. These terms were completely unknown to me 3 years ago.

Here is a close up of the stitching...

Here is a close-up of the stamps and clock....stamps are actually on a piece of a bubble mailer, so they pop up, so to speak.

Here is a close-up of the layers of paper used. I took some from s French travel journal and some from Anna Griffin. The jewels are from an old box that I bought at Events 120 years ago, or so it seems.

The book measures 4 1/2 inches wide and about 4 inches tall. The pages are blank and ecru colored with a sort of rice paper like pattern . A perfect format for:

  • A Gratitude Journal

  • An Intentions Book

  • A Goal or Wish Book

All you have to do to win it is become a Follower of My Blog. How do you do that? Look at the top right corner where it says "Followers" and click on "become one." You have to register with Goggle. No, this will not come in your Inbox each day. Will you get spammed? Hasn't happened to me yet from signing onto others, so I think you are safe. Winner will be announced on Tuesday, June 29th. Lucy will draw the name again at 6:00 PST. Spread the word and Good LUCK!!!!!!!!

What a nice journal! I think it's especially cool because the stamps are the same ones I used on my wedding invitation reply postcards. Our wedding was on New Year's Eve, and clocks were part of our theme, so I made my sweetie wait in line at the Downtown post office just to get those stamps! The other elements are also nice, so I became a follower, and I hope I win!
