Entry for Illustration Friday, and a giveaway!

Right, first things first! This is my entry for this weeks Illustration Friday topic 'Poise'... I used a similar colour scheme to the artwork in my last post as I'm a bit addicted to jadey blues and oranges at the minute! :) It's a bit of a different approach to the figure, slightly more realistic, as I'm attempting to add a few more contemporary style Illustrations to my 'ever in progress' portfolio!

Also, it's been a shockingly long time since I added any new treasures to my Etsy shop, soooo I've been working non stop for the last few weeks making lots of lovely things to tempt you with! ;) Here's a little preview of some of the things I'll be listing:

There's 63 new items in all, including Pendants, Magnets, Bookmarks, Butteflies, and ACEO's, and also my original painting 'Whisper'! I'm in the process of uploading everything today and early tomorrow so they should all be in the shop by tomorrow evening! *** All uploaded now... Phew! :) ***

To celebrate my GINORMOUS shop update, I've decided to do a giveaway with one of my artwork pendants! (Click on the image for a supersized view!) Apologies for the less than perfect photographs, the light wasn't great! This pendant is so much nicer in real life, even if I do say so myself! ;)

This particular pendant features my artwork ' A little Bit of Pruning...' and is one of a kind as this is the only pendant I've made so far with the image set under glass
! The Pendant setting is a gorgeous antique bronze filigree frame which measures 5 x 5cm. I've taken a crisp reproduction of the artwork on heavyweight paper and set it with glaze under a lovely flat glass nugget which measures just over an inch, then I securely attached it to the pendant base. It hangs from a short length of antique bronze chain accented with a beautiful off white pearly flower button, taking the entire length of the drop to a whopping 9cm!! But trust me, it looks really delicate and elegant on! The matching necklace measures 18 ins and closes with a lobster clasp. So, if you can see yourself wearing this then leave me a comment and I'll draw the winner in the next week or so! :)

Good Luck!! xx
