Before the sun sets I am going to pull a name from the bag and announce the winner of a signed copy of the book. It’s another first for me, a first ever Give Away. I have finally put my toe into the book selling world and I can honestly say that shop keeping is a humbling experience. Some people are very good at it and I take my hat off to them. I still struggle with the idea of selling at all, but am determined to keep going and find any number of ways to support my creativity.
I spent the rest of today making a 5 print order for this image. I was thrilled with the result and now they on their way to a happy home in Kildare. It is the beginning of a new direction for me and next year I will develop more of these techniques layering photography with paint and texture. Busy but happy….
The Give Away process has been fun. I decided to do it the low tech way and wrote each name on a cut up piece of paper and put it in a bag. My son pulled out the winning name at 4.30.
AND the winner is Margaret from County Tipperary. Margaret is also a blogger at A Year in Redwood and will receive a signed copy of Seek light, embrace shade, live colour” PLUS a selection of seasonal cards. Congratulations Margaret just send me on your address via the contact page.
We enjoyed so much pulling out the names from the hat that I decided to offer two runners up a free download of the book. So congratulations to the next two drawn, firstly a woman called Beth and then Amanda Peters who lives in Leeds in the UK. Again please contact me with your email address and I will forward you a link to the download of the book.
Thank you all so much for taking part!

Congratulations on having your book out and the wonderful image you've processed too, they all look amazing and it must be a wonderful feeling. – Tasha xxx
Thanks Natasha, it's a mixture of feelings to be honest, including happy and yet vulnerable. But I'm always moving to the next thing and that's how I deal with it all I suppose. Thanks for taking the time to connect, I really appreciate it x
Congrats to all….I hope to order mine in the coming month and I would love a signed copy if possible my friend!
Donna, I would love to do that! If you want to buy one directly from me rather than online just send me an email and I will happily oblige. x

Now you know I love me a bit of texturing and layering and that image of the little girl is a delight. Have you come across Sarah Gardner's book on using textures, Art Beyond the Lens?
Thanks Annie, I will check it out. I'm loving adding the painted textures. Also Susan Tuttle has a good book I think. X
