Transfer challenge and giveaway

Over at the Melange mixed media team blog, we are having a challenge. A transfer challenge. Due August 31st. Everyone is invited to join in! You don't have to be a member of the team, anyone who would do a project using a transfer process to add an image to the piece, is eligible.

I will be doing a drawing of everyone who enters for a copy of the new book called
Book Arts, Handcrafting Artists' Books by Dorothy Simpson Krause. It is not just about making books, it is about doing art also for the covers and inside. Lots of techniques that you will love. I will do the drawing on September 3rd.

Here is how it works: Make a piece of art using a transfer process. On August 31st when I put up the "official post" of entrants, go to the blog and add a comment in the comment section showing where you have posted your piece. You can use your Flickr account, an Etsy listing, a website, photobucket, or wherever. If you don't have any of these, send me a jpeg and I will take care of that for you. Write a sentence or two also with the technique that you used for the tranfer. Doesn't matter what kind, or if anyone else has already done that one, doesn't matter.

So far, two of our team members have written up blog posts with their pictures and techniques to help us out. They are all three different techniques and all three turned out simply amazing.

See them here: LD's two techniques Blog post by LDPhotography Take a look at LD's shop by clicking on her name.

Another great post by Pat May can be found here. Pat's shop is called Whyte and click on her name and it will take you there.

A big, giant Texas thank you that these two wonderful ladies would take the time to share with us their artwork, techniques for transfers and write them up for us.

And, think about it. Come over, do a transfer, post it on the blog on the 31st and have a chance to win a wonderful book plus share your art with the blog readers.

Hi Glenda,

That looks so great! I'd love to participate, but I'll be gone from the 30th through September 10. I have a piece I did using transfers, which I'd love to enter - Is there a way I can do it early? Send you a jpeg maybe? If not, that's fine. I'll participate in the next one!

:) Silke
