Poster-making with ArtSkills {Giveaway}

Closed
All of my life I've been drawn to creative projects.  It's my Zen.  Writing is one of those outlets, but some of you may know that I went to school to major in the fine arts.  Just like with writer's block, there's also artist's block.  I think many other creative personalities can relate.  When there are so many possibilities, we (or at least I) get so overwhelmed that I lose my focus and can't get any work done.  This is one of the reasons I love blogging, because I can revise and edit as much as I want, and it's a lot less messy than stripping down an oil painting!

This is true even for fun craft projects.  I think I put too much pressure on myself.  But as they say in school, looking to others for ideas is not stealing - it's a way to get inspired.  When I was contacted about an opportunity to review the poster-making products by ArtSkills, I knew this would be fun and stress-free.  Something I can definitely handle, and I daresay - enjoy.


Just look at the pack of goodies they sent! How on earth could this be anything but fun?  

For the inspiration they included their Poster Project Idea Book - which is a really helpful, spiral-bound book, whether you want to advertise a yard sale or birthday party.  From arrangement to presentation and everything in between, it's all included in this guide.


Don't forget about the accessories - everything you need to create the perfect poster is right here:
  • Quick Borders - fun ways to edge your poster, including a glue stick.
  • Quick Letter Pads - brightly colored letters and numbers which are re-positionable
  • Quick Letter Pads - in Jumbo Neon, sticky-back
  • Sparkle Letter Pads - also re-positionable and includes numbers as well.
  • Eyecatchers - neon and holographic stars, arrows, hearts and much more.  Peel  stick!
  • 3 Packages of Stickers - in Glitter, Pattern and Retro styles - lots of fun!
  • Poster Flash - this one's my favorite because the stars actually light up!  They have an on/off switch and batteries are included.

ArtSkills has everything you need to jazz up your posters.  All I need now is the poster board!  I can't wait to make some yard sale signs with these products.
G I V E A W A Y ! 
One of YOU will receive the very same and very cool poster-making prize pack, valued at $50.00!
