Pisa and 100 Post Giveaway

Hey Blogging buddies, Thanks for visiting!
Here is my latest painting "Leaning Tower of Pisa" I've painted this piece from a photo I took nearly six years ago while in Italy.  I used Jo Sonja acrylic paints and glazed over in Archival Oil paints.
Someday I hope to get back to Italy.

The Italian paper on the background is compliments of http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/

In my last post I was telling you how my 100 th post is coming up, well here it is! 
So I'm having a Giveaway, actually I've decided to have a 1st and 2nd prize giveaway.
I also asked 'what would you like as a giveaway' and three bloggers responded with an answer of something fabric.

I've incorporated Fabric and Art with a Journal.
This is second prize.
 Inside the journal.
The pages are 4.5 x 6 inches.
 Inside the front and back cover there are pockets for  collected bits and pieces.
 This little fabric bag 4.5 " X 6" also goes with second prize.

This 1st prize bag would be suitable for a make-up bag or pencil case. It's 9" X 6" in size.
 This larger journal is also for the first prize giveaway.
It's still in the making, however I'm sure it will be finished in plenty of time to post to the winner of my giveaway.
 Some of the inside pages. Oops, I've forgotten which generous blogger I got these gorgeous pictures from.
Do you know Suzy like I know Suzy oh, oh, oh
is very talented, creative and generous.
It's because I was in Awe of Suzy's work that I made these Journals.  Suzy has been very patient and helpful with advice while I attempted to make my first fabric journals.
If you need some inspiration, pop on over to visit Suzy.

There are just a couple of things to do if you want to participate to win one of these giveaways~
1. Leave a comment and contact details if you are
