One World One Heart - Magnet Giveaway


Hello! I'm joining in on the carpet ride for One World One Heart. OWOH is a giveaway event to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. It's a fun chance to visit some fun blogs, see some unique artwork, meet some wonderful people, and maybe win something in the process.

So, let me introduce myself. My name is Gale, and I'm a stay-at-home mom and artist. I like to create what I call "scribbleprints"--artistic designs that start out as scribbles but turn into something else on the way. It's a fun form of art because even when I'm aiming for something specific, to get the scribbly look I have to draw the original outline scribble with a quick loose hand, so the final outcome is somewhat out of my control. Then, with a much, much slower hand I fill in the designs, then scan them onto the computer where I use a graphics program to add color, crop, change shapes, add other elements, etc.

Of course, not all my designs are "scribbleprints." I like to play around with funny and witty designs, mostly designed on the computer. And eventually I will be adding some other artwork. I enjoy doing water colors and black and white sketches and all sorts of other art forms--just haven't added any of that to my shops as yet (with the exception of one butterfly design.

See some examples below:

tribal toes magnet
This work I call Tribal Toes. A lot of people say my
scribbleprints look like fingerprints, and I think
they work well here on these footprints.

Cross Magnet
This design has special meaning for me,
as it relates to my faith.

Lady Red magnet
This is another favorite of mine.
I re-tweak this often to make designs.

Purple Lady magnet
Here's the same design in purple.

Inner Child magnet
This one's not a "scribbleprint."
Sometimes I just like to have fun.


GIVEAWAY
You can win one of the above magnets (your choice). Just leave a comment below and make sure to leave an e-mail address or a link to your blog (if you have one) so I can contact you. Giveaway is open through Feb 14th, and the winner will be announced Feb 15th. If I don't hear back from the winner (or they leave no way to contact me) before Feb 20th, they forfeit their prize.

If you don't win, and you still want one, this month you can get one in exchange for a donation to MercyCorps, one of the organizations working in Haiti (I'm not affiliated with them, just support them). E-mail me at ecarian@yahoo.com if you're interested.

FREE COLORING PAGES FOR EVERYONE
Would you like a free coloring page with my designs? I have ones in several designs (including a heart like the one you see at the top of the page, minus the text). You can download those here! And, if anyone would like to share what you did with it, you're welcome to put a picture of the colored version up on your blog and then come back and share a link here (just leave a comment on any post), or send me a picture at ecarian@yahoo.com. Thanks!
