A Spilling Review and Giveaway

CONGRATULATIONS TO LUCKY #19, TODD!

You are the winner of the book,
Journal Spilling by Diana Trout

Many Thanks for everyone that
entered!



I have been spending time with Diana Trout's
new book, Journal Spilling.

Diana's relaxed conversational tone
resonates quite clearly throughout,
making it an easy read and creating
a comfortable environment for art
making. She introduces readers to a
number of valuable techniques, using
a wide variety of art supplies that will
leave any stark white page imbued with
an explosion of lush color.

I particularly enjoyed the chapter on
confronting your inner critique, where
we are encouraged to describe this
negative voice, as that is something
all artist's must handle when creating.
Journal Spilling is a book artists at
any level can appreciate as a way to
get their creative juices flowing.

I really enjoyed Diana's book
and have decided to give away
one copy.

Leave a comment by Monday,
March 15 for your chance to WIN!

BE SURE to check out this - Journal Spilling Video!

I love the colours and layers on the cover. It hints of tons of artsy goodness inside.

I was given this book my my dear friend from the USA - so I will not enter the draw, but can tell any other blogger who has not yet seen it to enter your giveaway. The book spurs one one; it is so good sometimes to step back and have other artist/authors direct your endeavours. (It would be so good to hear from whoever wins this as to how they find they develop. For I know I have benefited from the prompts.)

Great fun to take one of her workshops, too. Her warm, funny personality shows through in her approach to art, and her book.
