My First GIVEAWAY!!!

Hello all - firstly, I wanted to say thank you to all the people that wrote such lovely welcome back messages on my previous post - I had a great time reading them!!! Even thought its lovely going away on holidays - its great to be home again and back to real living.

Now, for my first giveaway - when I joined blogger, I decided I will have my first artwork giveaway when I reached 50 followers - so yay, I have 56 now, so time to put a smile on some lucky person's face...

"Autumn is Here" - mixed media painting

This is the painting that I will post out to the winner - I had a hard time deciding which of my paintings to choose, but ultimately, its the size of this painting that finally decided me - it is small and easy to package for posting - even if it travels overseas!
It is 20cm x 25cm x 1.7cm edges in size, painted using acrylic paints, watercolour pencils, lots of acrylic mediums as well as paper collage - it has a hanging hook attached to the back of the frame too. Also, cute little pearly love-hearts on her dress and gloves for touchable texture!
All you need to do to enter the draw is you have to be a follower, and then just leave a comment on this post - for two entries in the draw, place a link of this giveaway to you blog and let me know you have done so - I will then let my daughter Maya pick the winner's name from a 'hat' in two weeks time - approximately first week of June!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE! Cheers Val xxxooo
