Give Away for August's Technique of the Month

As promised, here is the post announcing the give away of Lisa Kerpoe's new book, Visual Texture on Fabric.  Please leave a comment on this email by  8 AM on July 31.  Leave a second comment and link if you tell others about the give away on your blog.  My personal random number generator (my husband) will pick a number and the book will go off in the mail to some lucky reader that day.

AND EVEN MORE EXCITING NEWS!!

Lisa is a reader of the Fire blog and when she saw we were doing resist techniques in August and giving away a copy of her book, she volunteered to start off the month with a guest post.  We of course said, "YES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!" to that offer!

  60. Yesterday, as I was trawling through the Internet for inspiration because I was so frustrated that I couldn't get In to my studio to do any creative work due to a painful Achilles tendon, I came across this blog with all sorts of fascinating art textile techniques. So much so that I even stopped feeling sorry for myself that I couldn't do my own stuff! The book sounds so fascinating too so I have my fingers crossed! Thank you for the opportunity and for all the creative artwork on the links here.
