A Giveaway! Jane Davenport's book Beautiful Faces

Product Details



In honor of the release of Jane Davenport's art supplies I am giving away one of my favorite books.  After taking one of Jane's online classes a couple of years back, I finally learned how to draw a face!  This book helped me immensely and I bought several so I could share them with friends.  Moving house and studio from Massachusetts down to South Carolina put that giveaway on hold but I thought now that Jane has her own art supply line at Michael's craft store that this would a great time to share her book.

Just leave a comment for this blog post.  The regular rules apply:  You must be a follower of my blog, a U.S. resident and respond within 24 hours of winning the draw.  The contest is open until Friday, Feb. 24th, 2017.  I'll announce the winner here on Saturday, Feb. 25th. 

Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits ~ Hugs ~ Renee

AIRs Challenge: Steampunk Wall Hanging

The AIRs theme for the month of January is "New Beginnings".  Having just moved into a new home, and a new studio, I really could relate to that theme.  I made a wall hanging to put on my studio door, it's a little bit steampunk, which I adore.  This is a sneak peek, the step by step can be seen on the Imagine blog.


February is right around the corner and is full of new challenges from Imagine.

AIRs Project: Delightful Wintergreen Card

The AIRs color challenge for the month of January is "wintergreen".  Take a look at the card I made using, what else, StazOn Studio Glaze and an ATC.  My interpretation of the wintergreen color is on the ATC as well as in the background.  Here's a sneak peek of a part of the card:
