2Y - Birthday Bash Giveaway # 5


Today's daily giveaway is sponsored by artist Deanna Molinaro.  As an artist, scupltor, and writer, Deanna's imagination takes on many forms of expression but her vision is one and the same: a whimsical world where the creepy and cute are vigorously intertwined.  Through her paintings and sculptures, we are introduced to elaborate characters and unusual circumstance, all effortlessly burrowing their way into our hearts.  Deanna also writes (and illustrates) Not-For-Children's Books, sweetly illustrated tales of unfortunate endings and consequence that whisk us away deep into a fantasy world of unlimited possibilities.  Visit Deanna's online store to shop your imagination!



How to enter: Simply leave a comment on the site (due to the new Facebook Page Guidelines, we can no longer accept entries on Facebook) and tell us how you bring your imagination to life!  From sewing to sculpting and everywhere in between, the possibilities are endless... For a BONUS entry, share this giveaway on Facebook or Twitter (don't forget to tag us, @dfwcraftshows) and comment again below letting us know that you have done so. Please don't forget to leave an email address, if I cannot contact you then you cannot collect your prize!

Contest ends at 10:00PM on Wednesday, March 29th, 2012.  Winners will be announced no later than the evening of Friday, March 30th, 2012.  Entries open to the US only.

Congrats to kluckingbear, you have WON this amazing framed print from Deanna Molinaro titled "Awkard," a $40 value.  This piece perfectly illustrates that awkward moment when the last cupcake might involve a fight with a monster... Don't do it, kid.  The signed print is 8X10 (actual image 6 X 8.5) and is printed on Moab Velvet Fine Art Paper.  The paper is slightly textured like the watercolor paper used for the original painting.

Looking for your own monster to share a cupcake with (or fight to the death)?  Deanna's online store is the perfect place to find that painting, sculpture, or book that speaks to you!

  8. What an awesome piece of artwork! Very funky :) When I need to get my imagination going, I just start creating something...whether it's graphic design work or crafts...I had an advertising professor in college that said QUANTITY YIELDS QUALITY. So make a bunch of stuff, some might be junk, but eventually you get to something great!
