Giveaway Day: Candy is Certain Mixed Media Painting

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED TOMORROW A.M.

Want to win this?


I've been wanting to feel like more of an artist lately, so in January and February, I made a bunch of mixed media paintings. This piece is called "Candy is Certain". [I think it's on a 9 x 11 canvas, but don't quote me on that!] The text on the image reads: "Life is uncertain. Eat dessert first." The materials are: canvas, paper, vintage dictionary, and, naturally, candy in the form of rainbow sprinkles. I added embellishments using a Sharpie Poster-Paint marker. This is a signed, one-of-a-kind original by me. I hope you like it!

If you win, you'll get this piece PLUS an added bonus: 5 adorable resin settings with an 18x25 center.



I use these frames to make pendants, brooches, rings, and magnets. I've glued them onto mixed media pieces, too. Just glue on your choice of jewelry finding with E6000 and add your image to the center. I'm sure you will find something fabulous to do with yours!

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me your favorite candy. It can be something that you liked when you were a kid or your current addiction. That's it!

My current favorite candy are these maple hard candies that I bought at a gift shop in Maine (the one with the giant chocolate moose!) I always like those maple sugar candies, but they are pretty pricey. The hard candies don't have the same texture, but the taste is FABULOUS. I think they are even better because they last way longer.

Want a bonus entry? Become a follower of my blog and leave me another comment telling me you did (or that you already are).

I will choose a winner using a random number generator. The last day to enter is Wednesday, May 25 at 9 PM. Winner will be announced on Thursday, May 26th. I will ship internationally.

  29. It's hard to choose a favorite, because I'm one of those who, whichever sweet I have (chocolate, candy, or cookies), I want a different one. *grin*
