Art is the Key

This giveaway is now closed. I will announce the winner on October 24, 2011.

One of my new bloggy friends is Ashley over at Illuminated He{art}.

Ashley recently took the leap from career girl to full-time artist and I'm so excited for her! It takes a lot of faith and support to live your best life and based on what I see so far, she's on her way.

We started chatting and thought it would be fun to swap a project in a giveaway. My contribution was this upcycled frame:

It was from an estate sale, was a dirty brass color and was framing a dated flower print on a black velvet background. I spray painted it, added a stamped fleur-de-lis on plain cotton duck and now it's quite the statement piece. I'm on the hunt for another one just like it (to keep for myself!) The lucky winner is also getting a $20 coupon to my Etsy shop.

Now for the giveaway...

Ashley is painting a custom piece of art and is graciously giving it away to one of our readers! She features her art on her blog and she has a unique style that I love. Here is what one lucky winner will win:

Don't you just love this? Two current trends - a skeleton key and a map...awesome! 

It's an 8x10 original oil and mixed media on canvas, so there will be a slight delay in shipping as Ashley wants to make sure it's completely dry before packing it up and sending it to our lucky winner. It'll be worth it though, don't you think??

This giveaway is now closed. I will announce the winner on October 24, 2011.
