I have decided to have a give away here at Treasure Barn.

Why? No special reason. I entered my first post back in Jan of 2007 thanks to my dear daughter in law Mica, and since then have posted 925 posts and I have 114 followers and numerous followers on my Patricia Creations Blog which is my gallery of art.

I look back on the art I did when I first started and I am amazed at what I have learned. Mixed media was what I started with and then became interested in digital art. I still do both. I love both but digital is my favorite now.

I started with ATC's and then created bigger pieces and then turned some of them into note cards. I have created on Masonite and moved to canvas. Last year in December I decided to altered altoid tins and cigar boxes by adding my art to them. I opened a shop on Etsy and since then have been doing pretty good.

So I guess in celebration of all I have learned since Jan of 2007, I am giving away one of my first mixed media collages (A Victorian Bride) done on Masonite and a matching set of 4 note cards and envelopes.

A hard back "Altered Art for the first time" book .
I got lots of ideas from this book.

A digital collage I created in 2010, mounted on canvas and 4 matching 2 x 3 stickers.

Bits and pieces of trim that I use for ATC's and 3/4 sheet of handmade paper.

Four of my first altered tins which includes a Siamese Cat, a Giraffe, Bumble Bee and my very first Steam Punk tin.

Here are the rules for those who want to participate in this give away.

I've been lucky to win one of your giveaways and have YET to do something with the package I still have. Shame on me.

I have a question...I would love to see some "barn" stuff for sale :)

I love them as well and others might be able to incorporate that design into their home. Well, I could hahahaha

Love you!

So pretty Patti! You certainly have learned alot! I'm thankful to have met you. I also wanted to thank you for your swap. It's gorgeous. I plan to post it as soon as I get things in order. My computer died and now I'm trying to figure out a new set up. I'm also having problems with blogger and had to convert to the new format. Lots of learning going on, sigh. Have a wonderful day!!
