(one lucky giveaway winner will win this hand painted alisa burke clutch. love how it has the word true in the mix of the paint - a funky accent to your basic black dress, no?)
my editor introduced me to alisa via email in early 2008. alisa's book, canvas remix, was a few months ahead of mine in the publishing process and she became a much needed support and mentor to me during those months of preparing, writing, and launching my own book. alisa's book launched in july 2008 and i've been so happy to watch her (and the book's) success unfold and do well. truly, it's a fantastic book that encourages (and show's us how with well written step by steps) messy, graffiti - inspired, layers upon colorful layers of painting. painting like you are free-spirited. no boundaries. no rules.
(another lucky giveaway winner will receive a signed copy of alisa's book)
i love how her book introduces us to techniques that use traditional materials but push and stretch the bounds of what painting should be and look like. why not infuse a little bit of punk rock? and vintage? and playful graffiti? and i really really love that she shows us how to make a wide range of projects, including painted wallets and purses. here a couple sneak peeks of my other favorite projects in her book:
(flowers...maybe for fashion or garland or gift wrapping or on and on.)
recap: one lucky commenter will win a signed copy of alisa's book, canvas remix. another lucky commenter will win an original alisa burke clutch (photo above). there will be two winners! thank you, alisa, for the goodies...we are so lucky!
