a canvas giveaway!

Once upon a time (sometime in 2006) I was attending a wedding and couldn't find a purse that I liked to go with my little black dress. So I grabbed one of my messy graffiti paintings, ripped it off the stretcher bars and sewed it into a clutch. Little did I know that this moment would COMPLETELY change the direction of my creative career! I suddenly discovered an entirely new process- creating paintings on canvas and fabric and remixing them into all kinds of accessories. I loved that a piece of art could be completely redefined! Soon after, I wrote a book all about transforming painted canvas in to all kinds of things.


For the past 7 years I have been making all kinds of things out of canvas, I've taught gazillions of classes and written numerous articles about painting and remixing canvas and I never ever get tired of the thrill I get from cutting up canvas paintings and turning them into something new!





So today I am sharing my love of canvas with you! I am giving away 3 canvas gift packages that will include-

A signed copy of my book Canvas Remix.
A canvas messy pouch (filled with a few of my favorite supplies). 
A little package of painted canvas scraps to play with!



Leave me a comment- tell me one thing you are grateful for today!
I will randomly select 3 winners and announce tomorrow (Friday)



WOOD BURNING KIT GIVEAWAY WINNERS- email me at alisaburke@gmail.com with your mailing address and we will drop your prize in the mail!

Hi Alisa, today as for everyday, I am really grateful for being able to enjoy the art of my web-mixed-media-artist-mates and especially the one who "washes away from the (my) soul the dust of everyday life". Thanks so much.

Hogwartography said...

Alisa - today I am grateful that the ski boots I ordered over the internet arrived safely and that they fit! Seems a very shallow thing to be grateful for in the whole scheme of things but...I guess mother nature truly is the most inspired artist so I am grateful to be able to spend more time in her company.
Happy birthday. Sue

Bonjour Alisa,
Je vous suis depuis de nombreuses années et je suis vraiment très très admirative de votre travail. J'ai vos livres et c'est toujours un grand moment de plaisir chaque fois que je les ouvre. J'ai aussi découvert la technique du piqué libre et j'adore.
Et pour Noël, j'ai eu la surprise de découvrir un foulard et deux trousses de votre création au pied du sapin. Quelle ne fut pas ma surprise, j'en avais les larmes aux yeux.
Continuer à nous faire rêver.
Amicalement
Pascale de Bordeaux

Just before entering the office (where I rode to by bke in the spring morning freshness sun) I thought to myself how lucky I was to do what I do. I'm preparing for exams. It could be no fun, but with thankfulness in my heart it's a pleasure.

jasmine d said...

I'm so excited to say, "Happy Birthday, Alisa!" Thank you for hosting a great week of giveaways. I missed the others but am excited to enter this one. Today (and everyday), I am incredibly grateful for my husband! He supports everything that I do, no matter how wild and crazy it may be. I wouldn't be as successful in my business if it weren't for his constant encouragement and sacrifice for my dream.

Kimberly R said...

Mrs. G said...

I am so grateful for my husband today (and every day). He is my balance, my sanity and serenity in the midst of a chaotic season of life. Balancing multiple graduate programs while working full time as a driven art teacher in a fast paced progressive international school can try my patience. As of late our time is consumed by paperwork applications- visas/taxes/shippments etc.. joys of an international couple stradling two countries and preparing to jump into a third (China in August!)... He loves me even when I am overwhelmed and grumpy. He gives selflessly of himself, and he bought me one of your "Make Art Every Day" prints to remind me to always make time to do the thing I love most even in the midst of it all. Blessed beyond belief for a husband who just today helped design and plan my costume for a 1920s gala, organized piles of legal paperwork applications I have ahead of me, and printed all the documents and paperwork for our trip to Shanghai tomorrow since I'm swimming in school work. I am the luckiest! Thanks for the chance to share and celebrate our daily blessings! To God be the glory for the bold and loving husbands in our lives.

Giggles said...

Love all your canvas work. I'm embarrassed to say I have had several yards of canvas in my cupboard for almost a decade now...Your beautiful work should motivate me to use it up!

Today I am grateful for my wonderful daughter who made a delectable Mulligatawny Soup so we don't have to make dinner tomorrow and I can create instead!

Daire said...

This may not be very profound, but today I'm grateful for coffee! I stayed up really late working on an assignment last night, and without caffeine I really wouldn't be able to do much today!

I really love your canvas pouches - I keep wanting to buy one but I never seem to get to the shop in time! (So I have to settle for just constantly buying classes instead...)

Kristina said...

I'm grateful for my son who turned 4 today. He has brought with him some chalenges, like light version of autism and some other health issues, but he turned my life upside down and gave me possibility to start my journey as an artist. I'm also grateful for you, because you a living example that everything is possible, and dreams do come true!

Clémentine Gibert said...

So today I'm so so grateful that my lovely husband takes one day of vacations to play all day long with our son, so I could have a whole day for my work :)

I actually got our family to start keeping gratitude journals. With two teenagers who want everything their friends have and a having busy household, it's nice to take a minute each day and write down something you are grateful for. Helps everyone in the family realize how much we actually have.

Just discovered you today as I am home with my 12 year old who is home sick. You've given me some inspiration to leave my laptop in the computer bag and sit and draw for a while instead. Thank you!

You are just the coolest person ever...so amazingly artistic.

I am grateful for Spring Break and the silence in my home. My 12th grader son (the baby of the family) went on a canoe trip and I am home from work this week. I have been playing with paint and pens in the silence. Perfection!

Today I am grateful for my 2-year-old son. We are headed out for a drive to downtown Denver where I will take his Birthday Pictures….he wants a Superman theme. So….to Metropolis/Denver we head. He's so smart and headstrong an passionate and creative. I never knew love until he chose me to be his mama. I'm just overwhelmed with how full my heart is for my small family. My husband completes me and my son humbles me.
