I have really been enjoying the things everyone has been sharing as part of Kerin Gale’s online book tour and blog hop. There are so many different prizes to be had for participating. I realized I didn’t update you on all the good stuff you can win when you visit all the various blogs/artists who are taking part in the tour. Prizes will only be shipped to US addresses, because of the high cost of international shipping.

So here’s a list:

1) One Aves Power Pack (selection of their most popular formulas) from http://AvesStudio.com
2) Fluid Chalks Online Workshop by Lesley Venable on her The Art Of Altering site which features many other awesome online workshops http://theartofaltering.ning.com/group/fluidchalksbackgroundsbeyond
3) Two Digital Collage Sheets by Alicia Caudle of Altered Bits. You can see her very unique and cool collection here.
4) Sample pack of Silputty 40 silicone putty mold mix from Silpak.
5) 1 OZ ICE Resin and a mixed metal bezel from ICE Resin
6) A copy of Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams

All 6 of these prizes will be give away on each participating blog. They will be awarded by random number generator to those who leave comments. We’ll start with today’s post. Leave a comment here about the blog hop, Kerin’s book, Apoxie clay or ICE Resin and we’ll do the first drawing for a 1OZ ICE Resin and a mixed metal bezel.

In addition to the aforementioned prizes, Kerin is doing grand prize giveaways to people who write a review of her book Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams. Here’s the skinny:
Any reader that writes a review ~ however short or long~ of Inspired Remnants, Curious Dreams on amazon.com before July 31, 2011 and sends an email with the title “Inspired Remnants Review” to remnants.art@gmail.com will be entered in a drawing to win one of these prizes. Please note that your honest opinion is wanted on this review.
1) The art piece “Sacred Totem” which is featured on the cover of the book
2) Power Pack plus extra Fixit Sculpt clay from Aves Studio
3) Frozen Charlotte Doll with digital tutorial “How To Crackle Charlottes” from Alicia Caudle
4) Resin Clay Pendants online workshop by Kerin Gale
6) Choice of any one workshop being taught by Kerin and Charley at Art Is You retreat in Petaluma, CA. The registration fee and workshop cost are both waived.
7) One copy each of Jen Cushman‘s book, Explore, Create, Resinate and Susan Lenart-Kazmer‘s book, Making Connections plus ICE Resin and a selection of bezels
