Giveaway Day #6 - Dream Custom Artwork



Woo hoo! It's my giveaway day! It is also the last day of the series, so be sure to enter. I've had this idea bouncing around in my head for a while. I finally took the time right after Christmas to get it on a canvas. Even though I love it (and thought about keeping it for myself!) I decided that it would make the perfect giveaway!


This multimedia tree started with a layer of handmade paper to give the background texture. That was painted a soft cream. The tree trunk was then added with pieces of torn printed paper in brown, teal, green, cream, and burnt orange. The small pieces were selected and arranged one by one. An antiquing glaze was then added over the whole thing.



Finally, button leaves were added to complete the piece. I just think it is so pretty and unique. If you are the winner today and would like a name, verse, quote, or monogram added in the space beside the tree, I will be more than happy to do that for you.

Entering is a little different today for those of you who have been playing along all week. You only get a maximum of three entries and each one requires a little something. Here are the rules:
1. One entry for becoming a follower and commenting to let me know. If you are already a follower, just leave an entry comment.
2. A second entry for "liking" Dream Custom Artwork on facebook and leaving a comment to let me know. If you already "like" the page, just leave an entry comment.
3. A third entry for leaving me a comment with an idea, suggestion, or something you'd like to see. I can't wait to see these!

The contest will end at 8:00 tonight. Best of luck to you all and happy entering!

Just a thought.... how about someone give you a picture of the precious children or grandchildren face and trace it into paint. I think I saw one similar like this on the Pinterest and thought it was so neat!
