October Giveaway from Tory Brokenshire

Each month a Portland Art Collective member gives away a piece of their art, so this month I would like to give away one of my chandelier glass journals. The glass journals are made to stand on a desk or table, they are filled with 80lb water color paper just perfect for a small sketch and a bit of paint. These little gems measure 8"x 2" and sparkle in almost any light.
Please leave a comment to enter your name in the giveaway. A member of our PAC group will post the winner the 1st of Nov. We will also need to identify you so please leave a name, when you win you will see your name and then you can email me with you mailing information. Good Luck!!!



P.S. if you do not know how to leave a comment there are instructions on the right side bar.

I've not seen anything like these before. They are wonderful! I only got to go to A&S for a couple of days, so did not get to see everything that was being done, but what I did see was really incredible! Thank you for offering one of these as a giveaway.

What a GREAT use of these unique crystals! These are gorgeous. I heard so many positive comments about your class and teaching style, I'm going to have to try you next year! Truly beautiful. Thank you for sharing your artwork!

jazzdog said...

Hi Tory! I loved the Santos class, my girl is ready to add color to her face and dress her in the duponi silks I collected for that purpose alone. This was by far my favorite class, although I had never sculpted in clay before, I think my project turned out beautifully! I'd love to win your chandelier glass journal, what a beautiful way to express yourself! Thanks so much, Jeanne D

liz kettle said...

I love these journals...what fun! I have a collection of chandelier glass but none that would make a good book.

Anne Carlson said...

Hello Tory, saws,drills, sanders, your Portland class left me with NO FEAR, a few fly away bingo balls and who got to dust those hotel chandeliers! Thanks for this new site am enjoying the art. I am wondering what tools you used to flatten those crystals, oh they come that way? Thanks again to you and your awesome crew, I was a little surprised by the speed of that nail gun and that your son-in-law so bravely put his fingers between shots! What a thrill, Anne C./Half Moon Bay
