New Line of Markers--GIVEAWAY!!!



Attention--entries are now closed for this promotion! To view the winner, please check out my post here!  Thank you  for stopping by and be sure to save my blog on bloglovin' or another feed so you don't miss any of my latest posts!




There's so much good news to share, I can barely contain myself! Suffice to say that life is going very well personally and professionally and I couldn't be happier!!  Today's post is going to be short and sweet as I have my head in the sand and nose to the grindstone as I prepare to take off on Monday morning bright and early to go film 4 DVD's for F&W Media (North Light Books, Artists Network, Cloth Paper Scissors)!!!!  WHOOOHOO super excited about that!  Those new videos will be out in January so save some of your holiday money so you can pick up a few of the new products come the end of  that month (2017)!

As a special thank you to my friends, students and followers, I'll be doing giveaways every week (maybe even more than once a week in September)!  Yay! Everyone loves a giveaway, right???


 Are you ready for the first giveaway??  Here it is--I'm giving away an assortment of paint markers by Pebeo!  I have to say, both the oil paint pens and acrylic paint pens are luscious.  Highly pigmented, smooth, free flowing and great coverage!  You will get  a few pens that are not even released yet in the states!  All the pens will be available soon, the oil paint pens (4Artist Markers) are currently available  at Amazon or Dick Blicks

 Look how luscious this white is!
 The pink pen is part of the acrylic line of decoMarkers-these are not yet released however I was the lucky recipient of a generous sampling of both lines and a variety of the tips.    I'll be using them in my next DVD so I have a few extras on hand for YOU!





l Here's what you will receive in your prize pack!  To enter, it's simple..just leave me a comment and let me know what you will be working on this fall, I love to hear what you are up to!

Drawing will be held on Sunday, September 4th.  I will however not be able to ship until the following week as I'll be out of town.  Hopefully you will be okay with that :)


Btw---if you share this post, come back and leave an extra comment for 2 chances to win!

Last but not least, don't forget, my new online class is coming up in October! Take advantage of the pre-sale price good through September 14th of 95.00 by clicking HERE.



After September 14th through October 5th it will be at the sale price of 99.00 so you get a better deal the earlier you sign up!




Don't forget, leave a comment to enter to win the marker giveaway! You will LOVE them!!

That's all I have for NOW...more great news in a couple of days along with another round of giveaways!!


xoxo

Have a great holiday weekend for those of you in the states!

I just signed up for your funky bird class ( actually forgot real name) that I have been wanting to take for some time. Thought they would cheer me up during some hard health times with my hubby. I'm sure the pens would be great to add some of those great details that you do on the birds. Thanks.

highstrungbeadsetc said...

This fall I am working on getting my "groove" back :) I've been away from art for a bit and want to immerse myself again.

Wendy Ward said...

What a great post, this fall I am hoping to continue on the learning path to build my knowledge on painting. I have been [art] journaling for almost 10 years and really want to explore more surfaces and ideas to get off the page and onto other substrates.

Jacquie Leavitt said...

who doesn't need something new to feed their art supply addiction. I love paint pens, but I have trouble finding ones I like (well, that I can afford anyway). Keeping my fingers crossed.

So happy to hear that things are going well for you, that makes me happy! Thank you for the chance to win these awesome paint markers. I am working on a variety of things this fall, from a canvas for my sister, to my Christmas cards, to some home decor items ( I just moved into a new apt. In late June). I could use these markers for all of these and more. That pink color is luscious :-). Have a very safe trip to F&W and enjoy the filming. We will enjoy seeing them when they are released.

Hugs,
Maureen

cincat said...

Hey Jodi. I'm super excited about taking your Zen class in October. I know it's going to be fun. One thing I'm in the process of doing this fall is finally getting a real studio in one of the spare rooms. I'm so glad I will have all my art supplies at my fingertips and not have to go rummaging thru boxes that are scattered in other rooms. I recently got back into my art after years of just not having any confidence to start. I figure better late than never...that really is a GREAT saying. :)

kim said...

I will be working in my art journal. playing with tips and tricks learned from you! Now I need new paint pens to add to the mix

I am excited to say I will be working on Pods and Zen this Fall. I am getting braver and want to paint bigger.

Artist In Bloom said...

Well, I have been unemployed for a little while but thankfully I am waiting to hear about a job overseas, these markers would be perfect as where I am going I will not have the capability to get things as easily as I can here in the US. I want to continue to take art classes while I work abroad and hopefully be able to take your new class very soon Jodi! Thank you! Gloria Bryant

The art gods---the sobriety gods and the health gods are smiling down on me----unfortunatelyt the financial gods are hiding out in the background for now. Thanks for offering this to someone, hopefully its me!!!

Beverley Johnston said...

Omg can't wait to get your book sounds fantastic. I'm a pebeo fan it broke my heart when they stopped making one of my fav colours. Now to bring out those pens is such aq brillant idea and i love that they are quite fat looking to hold in my misshappened arthritic tremoring hands. Oh yes the works and my latest piece I'm working on is quite the challenge for the tremor. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1256245274387807&set=a.476370825708593.113111.100000070402940&type=3&theater Hope this works not quite sure how i show you my W.I.P. Thanks for considering me possibly.
