When it looked like my follower count was going to close on 200 I knew I wanted to do a giveaway journal for the occasion, but I just didn't have the time to put one together. But last week as I put in so much studio time I also finished up a simple journal and put together a pack of goodies to go with it.
I'm sure you're all jumping up and down in anticipation, so let's get going and check out what you'll get.
|Oooh, it's a pretty envelope (how exciting, haha)! On this will be written the address of the winner of course.|
|And here's all the packages that are inside!|
|First of all there's a handmade journal. It is a one signature book with 60 pages measuring 17x26 cm. (6.5x10 inches)|
|The book is filled with different sized papers. Some are leftovers from my two atlas journals.|
|And the others are Fabriano artist's paper (200gsm). A wonderful quality paper that will take a lot of media.|
|The journal is very simple and unadorned. That's because I want you to make it your own.|
|You can of course always cover the maps and lettering with gesso, paint or collage if you please.|
|The cover has some of my photographs on it and is protected by sticky back plastic.|
But the journal for me was not enough. I wanted to give you stuff to play with right away. So in a way this is a bit of a journaling kit! It was so much fun putting this together and I have so much stuff that I won't even miss what's in here. So it's not like I went shopping for you all! ;-) Let me show you what else you get!
|Two zip baggies filled with ribbons, some fabric, tags, punchanella, and five little Vlieland photographs by me.|
|An envelope full of pretty papers and some stickers.|
|A selection of washi and paper tape on a piece of acetate.|
|And yes, the back of that piece is filled too!|
|A little handmade card by yours truly. There will be a personal note on the back of course.|
|And finally four tombow dual brush markers so you can doodle!|
The brush markers are brand new by the way. The thing is I had some double because the company that sold the sets to me didn't have the smaller sets and then sent me the bigger ones instead (with no extra charge) and those overlap, so I had a lot of extra's. And why not share those? I love those markers.
Well, that's it, my giveaway in all it's scrumptious goodness. I hope you like it and I hope you would like to receive it.
The rules are simple as always:
- Leave a comment. That's it. Of course if you have the need to be wordy about it I would love to know what you intend to do with all this stuff, because I'm always curious about that. You can leave a comment until Monday October 8.
- Somewhere on October 8 I will let fate decide who is the winner, so bribery or especially inventive answers will be much appreciated, but not affect the outcome in any way. ;-)
- Check back in the week of the 8th of October to see if you've won. Please don't apply if you will not come back to check, because nothing is more frustrating than having to hunt down a giveaway winner. I will try to contact the winner, but that's not always possible. If the winner does not contact me within a week I will do a second drawing.
And that leaves me with the announcement that I will be absent until the drawing day of October 8. One more day of work and then ten days of freedom, because I have another vacation coming on. Yay! I will be offline most of the time taking a break from blogs, facebook, mail and groups. It's refreshing to do that every now and then. Of course when I come back I will give you a full report of my vacation with pictures and all. Maybe I will even have done something artsy!
Until then I wish all of you a wonderful and artsy time! See ya in October!
