Pink Heart Giveaway (Closed)

I am so excited about my Pink Heart print.  I have just added it to my Etsy shop.  I wasn't sure if my first attempt was a fluke, but I now have been able to print several times successfully on the handmade Saint-Armand watercolour paper.  It takes time and care feeding it through the printer because of its thickness and the deckle edges but the results are absolutely amazing.   I cannot stop staring at these prints. They really look like original watercolours.

Because it is handmade paper, it means that each print is a slightly different, one-of-a-kind work of art.  I wish you could feel the paper.  It is thick, soft, luxurious and has a beautiful grain.  There are four deckle edges.  It is exquisite paper and is made right here in Montreal by the Saint-Armand paper mill.  Do I sound excited?

I have painted on Saint-Armand paper before, but it wasn't until this past weekend that I thought of trying to print on it.

Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows that I have had an up and down relationship with my printer.  Well today I am a happy woman and I wanted to share the love by giving away one Pink Heart print (the exact one in the top photo).  It measures approximately 6 3/4 x 4 3/4 inches.  I will initial it on the front and then sign and date it on the back.

All you need to do is to leave a comment on this blog post.  I will close comments at 1:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday, January 18, 2012.  I will announce the winner on Wednesday evening.  Thanks so much to everyone for all of your ongoing support. It means so much to me.

I am not responding to each comment the way I normally do as it will be easier for me to do the draw if my comments aren't mixing up the numerical order. I just want everyone to know that I am reading them all and appreciate them so much!


  1. I love it! It does look so much like an original watercolor!

  2. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'In Wendy's World.' Your blog is so pretty and charming. I love all the snow pictures. While I was reading, I noticed that you have alot of the same interests as me and my daughters. We started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty, and I am leaving here today with a smile. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.

I have looked up that paper, it does look so very nice....can only get it over where you are though. I read all the blurb about it and looked up the stores that sold it, but it hasn't made it to the UK? I will keep my fingers crossed! Thanks.

    Hi Kathleen, this is my very first attempt at posting a comment on someone's blog. I will not admit to how long it took me to figure out how to make a comment but suffice it to say I am very proud of myself right now. I wanted to say how much I love the heart and its colors. And the paper is just perfect for it!

  13. Comments are now closed. I'll announce the winner between now and this evening. Thanks for all of the lovely comments. ♥


Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog and to leave me a comment. I love reading them. -- Kathleen
