Claudine Hellmuth's Black Gesso & GIVE-A-WAY

Today my daughter and I went to an art journaling class with our fabulous teacher Karen Bearse!! The theme this month was on Claudine Hellmuth's Black Gesso by Ranger We had a great time playing with it, it's so smooth and creamy, I just love it. 
Anyway, I figured that since we were playing with it and it's such a neat product and to celebrate having over 100 fabulous followers on my blog that I would do another give-a-way!! YAY!! 
Here are the fun pages my Daughter and I did with the gesso:

This is the page that I did

This is the fabulous page that my daughter did. She used the black gesso on the entire page and then used a stencil and then some acrylic paints and dotted them inside the stencil, it turned out so cool.  

So in order to win a brand new bottle of this wonderful product (and this is the large bottle too, no small stuff here )
1. You have to be a follower of my blog
2. Leave a comment to this post. :-) I want to hear from my followers!!
3. LEAVE YOUR EMAIL - the last winner hasn't checked my blog and I haven't been able to award her her prize so please leave me your email address or a way to get a-hold of you.

The drawing will be in the morning on Valentine's Day Feb. 14th. 
Thanks for following and good luck to everyone.


*Please only comment once - I moderate my comments so if it doesn't show up right away don't worry, it will show up soon.
