Debbie's Gimmicky Giveaway

I have three sets of mini art canvases to giveaway. I call the sets Text Talk Canvas Art. These are original, acrylic on canvas, wall hanging pieces. A little bit of market research this weekend told me that they appeal, in the main, to teenagers from 12 - 15 years, but my pricing a little expensive for a pocket money purchase, so I've decided to give them away.If you like the quirkiness of these sets or know of someone who will, and you would like to be included in a draw for a chance to win please follow the instructions below. My reason for doing this is to improve my online presence. I have been posting on this blog spot for over a year now. I have a steady number of visits per day, but this is an exercise to gauge feedback in relation to my efforts to inform and entertain online.

Draw 1 A set of three chunky canvases that spell, when displayed together LOL 

can be wall mounted or free standing. Each individual canvas measures 5" x 5" (1.1/2" thick)

Draw 2 A set of small canvases that spell, when displayed together OMG

 wall hanging canvases 4" x 4" (1/2" thick)

Draw 3 A set of small canvases that spell, when displayed together CUl8r

 wall hanging canvases 4" x 4" (1/2" thick)

How to enter:

Maximize your chance to win by having up to three entries in all three draws.

For 1 entry: Please take the time to look back at my archive posts and leave a comment on a blog entry that you like and tell me why you like it.

For2 entries: Followers of my blog (new or old) will acquire a second entry into the draw. Please leave a second comment on this blog post below, telling me what you like about my blog as a whole  - whether it is the articles, the 'how to do' things, the art and illustrations, the opinion pieces, the comedy, the poetry pieces, the personal writing, the educational themes etc. You can follow if you have a Google account using the "Follow" button above top left.NB leave your email address in your comment if you do not have an email address on your blogger profile so that I can contact you if you are a winner.

For 3 entries: If you are a blogger and you blog this giveaway, leave a third comment that you've done so and include a link. This gives you a third entry to win the mini canvases.

Draw will take place on the evening of Sunday 3rd July and the canvases will be posted to the three winners first thing on Monday morning. Good Luck.

Additional note added Sunday 3rd 9pm:..this was an interesting exercise. I may do the same again sometime soon. I didn't need a random draw generator just eleven entries drawn from a hat. Winners names came out in the following order John, Lory and Jennifer. 
Best wishes, Debra
