It’s time for  the Design Style Guide GIVEAWAY #3 !!! We are going to be having giveaways approximately every 2 weeks! So be sure to check in often!

This giveaway features Felicia Kramer at anotherbrightidea.

Felicia says, “I have been making all sorts of art and crafts ever since I can remember. My mother also taught me to sew when I was a child so my creations will sometimes incorporate fabric and sewing techniques. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Michigan State University with a printmaking emphasis, during which time I developed my papermaking technique. il_430xN.78708297

I decided after college that I couldn’t afford to be a “starving artist” so I joined the corporate world as an event producer, where I often used my creative talents. At the same time, I continued with art projects, mostly for friends and my large extended family. I don’t limit myself to any one medium; I like to explore all types of materials and techniques and my cluttered workroom is a happy testament to that!il_430xN.75580311

I had a wonderful time exploring the variety of artwork in anotherbrightidea Etsy shop. I’m amazed at how many media’s styles of creations she can develop!

As a member of Design Style Guide (a group of artisans working to reach out to the Interior Design community ) Felicia is offering one US reader, $20.00 credit and free shipping to be spent in her shop on Etsy. il_430xN.60417262The winner will be able to pick any item from anotherbrightidea that is within the given credit limit. (credit is NOT transferrable for cash or to any other shop)

What a wonderful choice of artist for this first giveaway! Karen's work is beautiful. I love a few of her works, but I think my favorite would have to be "Aqua Loves Indigo." What GORGEOUS color!
