Studio Sunday and Margaret Applin Designs Giveaway!!!!

I'm getting an early start in the studio today.  I really want to get the creative juices flowing and pick up from where I was last week.  I had a great visit with a good friend of mine, Claire, yesterday as she joined me in my studio for a little personal imagery play! 

Which leads me to my Margaret Applin Designs Giveaway!!!  This giveaway is 2-part. 

The first part is one Thermofax screen of your choice from my Etsy selection.  Any one of the currently posted screen designs - it's your choice!

The second part of my giveaway is my personal design service.  Margaret Applin Designs will design a layout for a Thermofax screen for you using your own personal imagery. The winner of my giveaway will send me a doodle (or two) of their own personal imagery for me to create their design with.  I will order the screen for you and ship it to you at no cost as well as provide the jpg image of that layout for your future use.
  
And that's not all!  In addition to the Thermofax screen I provide to you, created from your own personal imagery, I will also design a full-color layout (provided as a jpg), using the same personal imagery provided above, in an 8 1/2 x 11 (or size A4) format, whichever is preferred, that you can then use to transfer to fabric or paper for your unlimited use!!!!

As an example, if you take a look back at this post, you can see how I combined a couple of doodles of mine to create a digital design I transferred to fabric in a variety of ways and additionally created a number of similar Thermofax screens from.

So this giveaway is all about me designing for you using your personal imagery.  Why am I offering this type of giveaway?  I believe that I can provide you with a new and exciting way of looking at your own personal imagery and how it can be used or applied in your fiber art or mixed-media.  I will work with the winner to ensure you are happy with your Thermofax screen design and full-color layout within reason.  There will be a limited amount of design hours provided as this is a free giveaway.

So how can you win???  Leave a comment here between now and midnight October 15th and I will select one winner using a random number generator!  It's that easy!!!

[Disclaimer:  All personal imagery provided by the giveaway winner will be strictly their own personal imagery and will not be duplicated or used by Margaret Applin Designs in any fashion.  Margaret Applin Designs will destroy any files created using the giveaway winner's personal imagery once the digital files are provided to the winner.]

Wow, this is an amazing giveaway. I was just musing about a design that I'd love to have a screen done for.
I love what you do with digital design!

This is exciting! I would love to design a thermofax screen, but more importantly, incorporate it into some art quilts. I've never tried experimenting with a thermofax screen, but love to try new techniques.
