The Lucky Winner Is..

Happy heat wave, my friend! At least, that’s what is happening here – the heat wave part. Me,not so happy about it. Heat here is always paired with high humidity – and that’s the part I don’t like! It has me feeling like I’m in the middle of a big ‘ol 24/7 hot flash. *ugh* Anyway, I had to come here and remind you that there’s only ONE MORE DAY TO ENTER! Enter what? OMGosh – enter to WIN this gorgeous Art Pouch!

One More Day to Enter

I purchased this Art Pouch from Doodlewash, to support the Dreaming Zebra Foundation for World Watercolor Month.  All proceeds from the purchases of WWCM products are used by Dreaming Zebra Foundation to provide art & music supplies & classes for children. You can read all about it HERE.


Yes, I’m spelling it without the customary ‘U’ in colour, because it’s a project founded by Doodlewash, in the U.S. World Watercolor Month was started in 2016, and is now widely known & celebrated, world-wide. There are so many amazing sponsors, like Daniel Smith, Qor, Van Gogh, etc., who do giveaways all month of their fabulous products. Be sure to check out the details of the fun month long celebration of watercolour HERE.


World Watercolor Month is only for the month of July – and my cut off date for you to enter to WIN this Art Pouch is tomorrow, July 31st!! Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to stop your painting on July 31st; it just means that the office ‘party’ will be over.


All you have to do to be entered to win are these 3 easy things:

  • First, create a watercolour project, using any type of watercolours paints you like, on any substrate. So you could be painting on watercolour paper, on Yupo, or a canvas.
  • Second, take a picture of your watercolour project!
  • Third, send me a photo of your project to ! Be sure that I can email you back at the email you’re using to send me the photo. I’d love to share pictures of the submissions, so please let me know in your email if I have  your consent to do that. I’ll be only posting them here on my blog, and will identify the artist by first name only.

Provide some details about your project, if you like. And I’d love to hear about how & when you started watercolour painting. Maybe what are your favourite subjects to paint? Whatever info you’d like to share is great!  On August 1st, I’ll randomly select 1 project from all those received, and declare a winner!  If you’d like to share your submission on your social media platforms (Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc) please use the hashtag #thistledesignschallenge so I can find them!  Please feel free to share this challenge with your friends!

It’s just that easy! You can be a beginner, or a seasoned pro at watercolour paints – this contest is open to everyone!

So – get your project done, snap a photo, and send it in! You’ve got until midnight PST tomorrow, July 31st 2020.  I’m looking forward to seeing your art 🙂

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
