My Studio 13

Welcome to my first foray into the Bloggy Giveaways Carnival! I'm so excited to introduce you to my friend Carrie of My Studio 13.









I have known Carrie for years, (we are friends from church,) and she is the most amazing artist. Hop on over to her ETSY shop and check out what she has for sale. She paints, she does 'mixed media' projects, she makes journals, crowns-she'll try it all! Something to notice when you visit is that her things are one of a kind and once it's sold, it's gone. If you are looking for more check out her blog or email her- her house is truly BURSTING with beautiful pieces and she may have another piece in a series that she would sell.

The piece that we are giving away (above) is "Creative Nesting." It is a 4"x8" mixed media collage on watercolor paper, shadow box framed. She has used acrylic paints, stamps, ink, collage sheets, acetate, artists crayons, and charcoal pencil. This piece sells for $21.00.

This is one of my favorite pieces:

Vintage spoon Book
These spoons are so cool (my husband WANTS them! Oops, he's buying them. Sorry.) The text on them reads: "Trust in the Lord, with all your heart. And lean not upon your own understanding. In all our ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path." Proverbs 3:5-6. Side note-she is making more of these, so really! if you see something that you want and it is not available email her, she just might have something similar or would be willing to make another. (kee13@aol.com)

How To Enter: Check out her blog and her ETSY shop then come back and tell me which piece you love. (Carrie will be reading- you might influence some of her new pieces!) Make sure to leave your email address in the comments so I can contact you. You do not have to be a blogger, just have a valid email address. One entry per person, please. Comments/entries will be open until Monday, August 4th. I will choose a winner with a random number generator and I will contact you be email. You will have until August 8th to get back to me with your mailing address or I will choose a new winner. (Please note: I will be on vacation so these will not go out until after the 10th.)

I really like Koi. It has some great movement to it.

Lady Loony said...

Boy Wonder from the ETSY store...I just love the look on his face, and the entire color scheme of the overall piece

From the blog I don't know where to start...the "A greeting Transformed" is probably my favorite because of what it saus. I love wonderment, poetry, words. Another favorite is "For a song" and of course let's not leave out the daisy watercolor...I keep going back to look at that one, the green is amazing, and the whole thing is just absolutely beautiful! One piece that isn't pictured is the Hero one about Glenn....it is my all time favorite!

I have always loved Carrie's work, and was so excited to find that one of her gorgeous pieces is being given away to a lucky someone *crosses fingers and hopes it's me!
I have narrowed down my favs to: "I am Strong" and "Prepare for Life" - I love inspirational pieces such as these; "The Singer's Journey" - such awesome colours!; and "Vision" necklace - because collaged pendants are beautiful!
Thanks heaps!
