We have a winner! And a few more...

Dear all my wonderful blog readers.

So glad to see you back here, thank you for dropping in!
First I have to apologize for getting back to you all this late with the winner of the big giveaway. However, I never dreamed of so many wonderful participators for the draw, so I needed more time then the 5 days I had saved for this. Nearly 700 bloggers joined (!), and well, it takes time to drop in to hundreds of blogs to check out everyones posts and shares! But I have to admit that even though that at least was my plan, do trop in to all of them, I never managed to do so due to the amount of time it took. But every single person who signed up for the draw were in the "hat" with a number each! ;O)

Before we move on, I wish to THANK EACH ONE OF YOU who participated in this draw, to each one of you who posted so wonderful blog posts about this and had up banners on your sidebars;  -Thank you so much for your time and for your help, I appreciate it so much!
But of course,  unfortunately there can only be one lucky winner of the "BIG PRIZE", so finally we can say...

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S 
to Barbara from Berlin!

On August 5th Barbara posted this comment on the giveaway post;

"Hello Ingvild,

What an amazing giveaway! I am a big fan of your Layouts and somtimes I try to lift them. They are not so beutyful like yours, but I don't give up.
Congratulations on the new blog design and I postes the information on my blog here:
Bye bye"

Please make sure to drop in to Barbara's wonderful blog here and check out her great work!

Again, here is what Barbara just won, the "mountain of Prima Products";

And together with the Prima goodies, to thank you for your participation and wonderful blog post and share, I will throw in this handmade "thank you" tag too;

Barbara; I hope you will enjoy the big box of goodies and my tag which will be on its way to your home address in short time! ;O) Please contact me on with your postal address to claim your prize! ;O)

One additional winner

When I went trough so many wonderful blogs, I thought about how many hours you all together have put into this, to join this draw and to share. We are talking about hundreds and hundreds of hours of work, where you all helped to spread the word about my new blog. That really makes me so thankful and honored, I can't even describe how much I appreciate it! So to give just a little bit extra back, I decided to draw one more winner to give you all a second chance to win from the same draw without having to do any extra work for it.
So I made one canvas which I wanted to give to one additional winner, and here you can see that canvas;

"So Fairy Beautiful" canvas

This canvas is only 10x10 cm big, just "a little piece" to hang on the wall. I used lots of Prima products on it and different mediums and techniques. The white window is a resin window from my last year release of Shabby Chic Resin Treasures.

Here you can see the canvas from the right side;
Lots of wonderful Prima flowers and branches, shaped to fit on the edge. The pinks and turquoise colors on the canvas are from the Chalk Edgers which I love to use on every single project I make. Here used together with different Prima masks and white Gesso medium etc.

The canvas from the left side:

Here on the edge of the canvas you can see different effects of the different stamping and masking techniques used. Prima Brick Wall stamp and Prima masks, together with Chalk Edgers "Garden Grass, Teal Damask, Turquoise Stone, Black Coal and Dark Rust.

The upper left corner;

Here I added a little light bulb "Typo Bulbs" from my collection Junkyard Findings with Prima. It is hanging down from the end of a leaf branch (the leaf is hanging down on the edge side), fastened with some buttons, a small "Clock Hands" from Junkyard Findings, some Prima flowers and a butterfly stamped on a clear sheet and then cut out and glued down.

Front details:
Inside of the Shabby Chic Resin Treasures window I used a piece of a Prima Fairy Belle pattern paper for the beautiful fairy image. The window "glass" with script design is a piece of a Prima flower clear backdrop packaging.

Right lower corner;

Here you can see the little resin bird from my new collection of "Shabby Chic Resin Treasures". Beautiful pending embellishment from Prima together with Prima branches and flowers.

Together with this canvas, I will throw in all these Prima products in happy colors, so I hope this will make the winner happy too! ;O) 

The prize includes; Prima trim, Prima branch/vine, 8 packs of Prima flowers, Donna Downey trim, one 6x6 stack of Prima papers and two Chalk Edgers, plus the canvas! ;O)

So who is the extra winner?
