Story Jewelry Painting Giveaway (Etsy!)
Hi Prissy Green readers! I’m Samantha Cummings, and Karissa has kindly let me invade her blog to tell you a little about me and to offer a prize! You will usually find me over at Priceless Writers, creating non-fiction projects for clients…but there are a great many other things I enjoy creating. My salvaged wood paintings are near the very top of that list!
Children love looking at whimsical, fun things – pictures, toys and even photographs. With their little imaginations, they can turn a ladybug on a leaf into the heroine of a tale or a cupcake into a magic food made by elves that sneak around in kitchens at night. I think that’s really great, and think more adults should have that ability!
These paintings are done in acrylics on salvaged wood – my fiancé is a carpenter and so before he throws away the scraps from a job, I sneak out to the truck in my ninja clothes and ski-mask and confiscate them! This process looks a lot like me saying, “Honey, can you put that wood in the garage for me, por favor?”
With each painting, I try to capture something fun, whimsical or magical. They’re not only appealing to children, either…the roses seem to be a favorite among adult women. I plan on adding many more things in the coming weeks and months – including more paintings for little boys, some beaded jewelry and other creations. I hope you’ll visit often!
Can you see the sparkling sugar sprinkled on top? As I told Samantha, there isn’t a whole lot my niece loves more then food, but she really loves clothes, and PINK! She gets her eating habits from me, and the fashion habits from her mom, my sister-in-law, and of course her Grandma, my mom!
Samantha has chosen this painting as a giveaway item for one of you Prissy Green readers! To enter, head over to her shop at Etsy named Story Jewelry and pick out your favorite painting. Or better yet, have the little one you want to win it for pick it out!
Unless you want it for yourself! I am rather keen on the You are My Sunshine/Flower above myself! I think this would make a magical Christmas present for a little one’s room.
