Surely I Can't be Serious.....

As a matter of fact, I am - and stop calling me Shirley.  :D  (Sorry, I couldn't resist the "Airplane" joke!)

Today marks the 100th post for Ephemeraology!  Cue the party sounds!!!  So, in honor of this auspicious occasion, I thought I'd do ANOTHER giveaway, this time with my good friends Steve and Melissa over at Citra Solv!

You may recall the post I did about a month ago called "The Citra Solv/National Geographic connection", wherein I discussed what marvelous art you can create with this all-natural household cleaner and old National Geographics (I've put the link in here if you'd like to read it again).  Well, today we're giving you the change to try the duo out for yourselves!!

Here's what you'll win:

  • A bottle of Citra Solv courtesy of Steve & Melissa over at Citra Solv
  • A pack of 20 Strathmore ATC cards so you can show off your artwork, also courtesy of Citra Solv; AND
  • A National Geographic, courtesy of yours truly, to try out the experiment!  :D
Sound great?  YES!!!  So, enter by commenting here on the blog.  I'll give you THREE chances to win!  Here's how you can get your name entered thrice (isn't that a great word?):

It's that easy!  When you're done, tell me in the comments below which of the items you've completed (no worries if you're already doing these things - just let me know in the comments that you do!).  If you don't tell me EXACTLY which of the three (or all three) you've done, you'll only be entered once, so please be explicit - I just don't have the time to check each and every entry!  Also, this contest must be for continental U.S. residents only, since the Citra Solv is being delivered via UPS.

Okay!  Let's start the contest!  Hurry, though - you only have until Friday evening at 5 p.m. CST!

Good luck!

  1. I've 'liked' Citrasolv just now and am already following and 'liked' your blog.
    (This morning I'm using some Citrasolve/Nat. Geo. backgrounds in some cut paper illustrations I'm working on for a picture book.)

  2. I'd love to win this but i am in UK & i suppose shipping a liquid would be a 'No No'. It would be good to find Citra solve here or the UK equivelent. Good luck to everyone. x

  6. I've yet to hop on the Citra Solv bandwagon, but believe me, I'd be so excited to try it. I've checked out their website and all the art on it is BEAUTIFUL. I could make some beautiful card backgrounds and ATC's! Thanks for the opportunity!

  11. Just added Citrasolv to my like pages since I'm all set on following you here & on FB.

    I just read something about Citrasolv on the Sketchbook Chalenge blog.

    http://sketchbookchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/03/citra-solv-photo-transfer-tutorial.html

    It sounded interesting & I'd really like to give it a whirl.

  12. Heck, I followed the link on FB's Citrasolv page to your blog more than once already. I really want to try the Citrasolv technique, but can't until $$s are available to buy some. It's $12 a bottle here, and $12 makes a difference in my household right now. But hopefully, soon. And I'm now a follower, too.
