GIVEAWAY

I entered Wanda's blog drawing last month. As I was a winner, I now have to pay it forward. This is what my prize will be:- A handmade book cover and book. The cover is made with craft vilene which has been coloured with transfer paints, using my embellishing machine machine, fibres and fabric were added for texture, and then machine stitched. I have taken my inspiration from the colours of Autumn (my favourite season), the machine stitching represent the bark patterns. A metal leaf for final embellishment
The book is made with paper weight 270g/m2, coloured with Brusho, ala Frances Pickering. Images and words have been stamped on a few of the pages with Distress Inks.
All you need to do is, leave a comment on this blog and a mention on your own blog(if you have one) to be entered in the drawing. Don't forget, if you are the winner, you have to pay it forward.
The drawing will take place on June 21st, Midsummer's Day.
