Home Sweet Home + Giveaway!

Hiya my lovely readers,

I’M HOME! For some odd reason I am SO SO excited to be back in my craft room because I feel I create the best in it. I just have so much more than I could ever bring to a crop in here which gives me all those capabilities to create more {do i make sense}. Anyways, I LOVED the crop as usual! It was so so fun and I got to catch up with some old friends 🙂
I don’t want to make this post to long because I have no pictures and word posts are UMM BORING!!!!! But I do have a lovely giveaway which amazing Nat from NathaliesStudios is giving away!
One lucky commenter will receive a FULL online class by Nat! In this Über*Media Acrylic Paint Workshop you will learn how to use Acrylic Paints in your Scrapbooking and Mixed Media Projects! This class is a reference guide for you, showing all kinds of possibilities and techniques using Acrylic Paints with different surfaces and media.

Full Version = 8 WEEKS which includes about 100 techniques in 5 hours of video material, 14 Art Journal Tutorials, and 2 step-by-step Scrapbooking/Mixed Media Tutorials which are downloadable. This costs 77 US-Dollars (about 59 EUR). More info here!

This is an AMAZING giveaway {HUH} Thanks so so much Nat!!! If you want to learn how to use acrylic paints I would TOTALLY suggest buying admission to her class here.

    What a fabulous giveaway especially since I just started taking up acrylics and mixed media. I would have to say my scrapbooking style is mostly grunge and shabby chic right now. We all know how today its one thing and tomorrow it may be another. Thanks for an opportunity to take this class.

    What a fun giveaway! Right now I’m pretty much modern as well and use alot of trendy products and techniques.

  3. May 21, 2012 / 1:09 am

    Wow what an awesome give away, right now my style is very ecclectic. Always deceptively simple looking with lots of empty space (am not good at the cluttered heaps on a page look). Lots of hidden work so to speak. Clean lines, am really getting into clustering and hand making flowers at the moment as well.

  4. May 21, 2012 / 1:14 am

    What a great giveaway! Thanks for sharing! My scrapbook style is grungy.

    I would love to win this giveaway! So much knowledge! Right now my style is mysterious with a little light hearted glam fun!

  6. May 21, 2012 / 1:28 am

    What an awesome giveaway! Thanks Drew 😉
    My style is a bit bi-polar, or eclectic…really depends on my mood. I’m being drawn more into art journaling so it’s getting more ‘artsy.’

  7. May 21, 2012 / 1:44 am

    Thanks for a chance to win… style depends on a mood — somedays just a quick spilt others days gusto and glimmer!

    What an awesome giveaway!! My style is more shabby and vintage but some days are definitely more modern. Guess it depends on my mood. Thanks and good luck to everyone… I never win but can’t win without trying! LOL

  13. May 21, 2012 / 2:10 am

    Glad you had a good time on your retreat. Bummer they didn’t have wifi for you to use! This class looks amazing. My style of Scrapbooking is shabby with clean lines. I know it’s an oxymoron but it works for me!

  14. May 21, 2012 / 2:12 am

    Sounds like a great class!!

  15. May 21, 2012 / 2:33 am

    Thanks for the opportunity Drew. I actually like a little shabby, but have been exploring some mixed media and art journaling too!

  17. May 21, 2012 / 3:16 am

    I would describe my style as elegant grungy with a bit of shabby chic! That’s if you know what I mean. Thanks for the opportunity!

  18. May 21, 2012 / 3:48 am

    What a wonderful giveaway.. I would say my style is a little modern grudge.

  19. May 21, 2012 / 3:57 am

    My scrapbook style i’s Shabby Chic all the way , I just adore it and all that goes with it…
    I have JUST started an Art Journal, so winning that class would be FAB!

  20. May 21, 2012 / 4:09 am

    I love Nat’s bold style in her mixed media, and would LOVE to take her Acrylics class! Thank you to her for the prize, and to you for hosting the giveaway! My scrapbook style is ever-evolving. I’ve been told it’s “out-of-the-box”, but I think of it more as eclectic. I am trying to incorporate more of my painty art journaling into my layouts.

  21. May 21, 2012 / 4:33 am

    What a fab giveaway. I would say my style is a little grunge, and a little shabby and a whole lot of me. Love adding little mini books and art to paperbag albums. But give me time, I am still a work in progress!!!

  22. May 21, 2012 / 5:45 am

    Great giveaway ! Well, it is difficult for me to tell my scrapbook style because I don’t have one in particular but currently I love pastel colours and shabby style ! Have a nice week and thank you for the chance to win 😉

  23. May 21, 2012 / 6:29 am

    My style is still not completely defined, and I think it will never stop evolving. But for the moment I think it is a bit grungy, vintage and very Mixed Media, but sometimes also very clean and modern. Depends on my mood.
    I like Nathalie her style very much. Thanks to both of you for this super gift.

  24. May 21, 2012 / 6:36 am

    Hi Drew,I am a scrapbooker/cardmaker that’s style is however forever changing. I guess though the common thing is i love using cheaper products and making them into something special. I would really love to take Nats class as i have a stash of paints that just never get used and i would love to be inspired and learn techniques that i can pass on to the clients i support. Suzanne

  25. May 21, 2012 / 6:51 am

    What a fabulous giveaway! I’ve just started making mi[ed media projects and I really would love to have chance to study! Thanks!

  26. May 21, 2012 / 8:42 am

    Fabulous giveaway! So would be thrilled to win!
    I think my style is um… experimental, mixed media, “get your hands dirty” type of thing, cause I love to use inks, paints, gesso and mists.

  27. May 21, 2012 / 10:12 am

    what a great giveaway! my style is probably mostly a bit shabby but i am always interested in trying new styles and often something will stay with me after giving them a go.

  28. May 21, 2012 / 11:13 am

    Sure know what you mean about being at home, I don’t usually get much done at crops for that same reason{what I always want to use is home so I wait to do it!} Anyway, sounds like a great giveaway. I’d say I’m mostly clean and simple with a little shabby chic thrown in the mix. Thanks for the chance Drew!

  29. May 21, 2012 / 11:42 am

    Wow, always wanted to take a class like this.

    May 21, 2012 / 11:47 am

    I would say my style is Vintage. However, right now I’m doing more art journaling and painting than anything else. This giveaway would help me learn more about working with mixed media. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  31. May 21, 2012 / 12:10 pm

    My style is a little bit of Tim and a whole lot of Drew! Keep up the great work and inspiration!

  32. May 21, 2012 / 2:31 pm

    Hi Drew…just found you and am so glad that I did….modern and bright all the way!! That’s what I like.

    Hi drew, so glad i was able to stop by and say hello. I really would have liked to stay, but… Things come up to change our well thought out plans. I love the warm colors from ranger with lots of bright happy additions. Tims grunge has opened my thoughts to new styles an d techniques. Love the shabby florals and lots of metal pieces. Keep up your style and always b open to try new stuff 🙂

    my style is what ever speaks to me for the day …I scrap and make cards to my mood …would love to win this class to get back into using paints again …i painted years ago before my house burnt and have yet to get back into it …was heart breaking to lose all my panting supplies …maybe this class is just the thing i need to get inspired and create with paints again ….

  45. May 22, 2012 / 8:39 pm

    I have been a fan of Nic Howard for a while and now I have found you. You both do a lot of layering and if that is a style, then that is my style right now. I have paints, but am a little nervous about using them.

    May 23, 2012 / 5:54 pm

  50. May 27, 2012 / 6:19 pm

    Wow!!! Great giveaway! I’d say my style changes with my mood. Sometimes it’s shabby chic, sometimes it’s grungy, sometimes it’s elegant and sometimes it’s minimalist. It sort of depends on what the project is and who it’s for too. Thanks for the chance to win Drew!


  51. May 27, 2012 / 6:22 pm

    This is one amazing giveaway! I would say that my style is definitely shabby chic. I love the way it looks and there is so much fun that you can have with it!

  52. May 27, 2012 / 6:48 pm

    What a amazing giveaway! I would love to learn mix media. I have alot of things still to learn and this would really help me with one design team im on. She loves steampunk and I could really use the extra help to create different projects. I am more shabby chic style and victorian. Thanks Drew for the chance to win this wonderful giveaway!

  57. May 28, 2012 / 8:24 am

    Ohh, what a nice give away. 🙂 This is a work shop I’ve been thinking about taking.

    So my style…. I like to try a lot of different styles. That’s one of the great things about this hobby – You can pick the goodies out of the bag. 🙂 But even though I like to try different styles, I always want to make my layouts colorful and happy – so that’s my style, mixed with a lot of paints, mists and masks.

  58. May 28, 2012 / 11:20 am
