Hi LuLu - I'm so excited, I could just bust!! What a fabulous, awesome, generous, and inspiring GIVEAWAY ;-)

I began as a scrapbooker, then discovered altering, soldering, mixed media and most recently art journaling!! One thing has just led me to another and discovering a cool blog like yours allows me to develop and grow on the inside and then let it all ooze out as an artist.

I never understood the "art journal" and it's purpose until this year when I started trying totally new mediums and techniques and the lightbulb FINALLY went off when I couldn't remember it all! In the past I saw it as wasting product - sometimes I can be so silly LOL.

I am now following you, have subscribed and can't wait to check out and try:
#1 Transfer using Contact Paper - I have read all about transfers many times and have never wanted to try it til NOW - contact paper? this is going to be FUN.
#2 Drunken Scotch Technique - This one I'm totally over the moon excited to try as I have lots of alcohol inks, love them and always looking for another way to use them. This looks to have amazing gorgeous results - thanks!

I've put you on my sidebar and have my fingers and toes crossed until you select the winner in May - I sure hope I'm the lucky fan, stalker (just kidding), lurker, follower, subscriber.

Thank you so much for this opportunity and for sharing yourself and CONGRATS on the 100th post - you go girl.

Linda R.

and since i really, really want to win (and guess what i will be in the US in early May), here are 2 more tutorial titles for another entry - Mina - Waiting (i love how you were able to alter this image) and image transfer using contact paper (again, i'll have to check where contact paper is available here.)

Howdy Peggy,

Thanks for playing.

Where to find supplies:

ALUMINUM REPAIR TAPE@ any hardware store - usually in plumbing supplies, comes in a roll, tape is 2 inches wide

CONTACT PAPER @ home remodeling stores, comes in assortrd colors and patterns - but you want CLEAR contact paper. Usually contact paper is used for lining shelves in kitchen cabinets and linen closets.

I love 'Mina Waiting' too. She mesmerizes me - did you notice that each eye of Mina's eyes is a different color?

Good Luck!

Have been a follower for some time and posted your giveaway on my sidebar ( Your metal flags tutorial is really cool but I don't have a die cut or embossing machine. Maybe I can try it without the machine and just etch on it. The contact paper transfer seems like something I could use. Thanks for sharing your joy! Patsy from
