Wear Your Art- A Giveaway.

>> Monday, October 27, 2008

Contest Closed

Last week the girls and I got to hang out with "Auntie Gina". Brenna absolutely adores her... And Caelan, who rarely warms to anyone quickly, was quite cuddly with her as well.

As a gift for each of the girls, Gina painted a shirt... Here is Brenna's:

And Caelan's- but she wouldn't pose:


Gina worked in their initials with bits of sparkle and whimsy, both on the front and back of the shirts. They are adorable. And, quite honestly, much cuter than they appear in photographs.

Gina also does wearable art for adults- as well as some jewelry and pieces that hang on the wall instead of on your body.

Gina and her partner, Joseph, have recently opened a studio on etsy, a great marketplace for handmade items. Each piece is hand painted, nothing is a print, so everything is completely original.

Want to wear a piece of art? Just visit Studio Of Divergent Layers at etsy and pick your favorite piece. Or, maybe if you really sweet talk me, Gina could design a top for your toddler.

Leave me a comment letting me know which piece is your favorite (Brenna's and Caelan's included!). Don't forget to leave an email address.

Winner will be drawn November 1, sometime before noon.

Go enjoy more of the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival:
