Every Saturday, for the next few weeks, I'm going to announce a new art piece or illustration I will be GIVING away!

This week's giveaway:
  Upcycled Art - An original colored pencil drawing on a 1930's dictionary page
  This Illustration will be cased in a clear, protective sleeve and sent by mail to the winner.

There a few very simple ways to enter this contest:

- Mention this Blog through Twitter, FB, or your Blogsite and then give me the link (you can leave it as a comment on this post or Tweet it to me). Don't forget to make me sound extra-great by telling your friends/followers something along the lines of: "Hey check out this crazy awesome illustrator..."

- Follow me on Twitter and tell your friends to follow me, "Wow... follow @almiart - she can draw!"

- Comment on this post and tell me something interesting, like "Sweet! I never knew what a Dormer window was until I read this illustration's background!"

For each way you enter you will get a chance to win this print! (So, if you want to rack up the entries, just enter as many ways as you can - post on FB, Twitter, blogs, comment here and you will be off to the races!) All entries will be put on a list and then I will use to draw the winning name.

Check back in at the end of the week to see if you won this print and what I'm giving away next!
This giveaway ends Friday, July 20th at 11:59 PM.

The whole point of these giveaways is to get some extra hype going for a project I will be announcing in a few weeks. If you enjoy my illustration, even the tiniest bit, or if you like free stuff - PLEASE get the word out and help me get this going!



  1. I absolutely love your art. So beautiful Almi!

  2. HI Almi, I love your art...I originally found you on IF and now follow you on Pinterest too. I'd love to be included in the drawing! I am repinning on Pinterest, too...does that count?

    I do have one said you used color pencil on this cute piece but in the photograph it looks more translucent like watercolor...can you describe your technique?


    1. Thanks, Rita! Yes...Pinterest can count!

      I did use colored pencil - most colored pencils are pretty translucent, even when layered. Lightfast pencils, or dark colors like black, are much more opaque. On white paper you can't see it, but on the text paper you can see the text come through and it's much more obvious.

      Thanks for entering!

    2. Thanks Almi, I appreciate your reply!


Thank you so much for your comments! I love hearing from my blog readers.
