Look Mom, It's Handmade - Nature's Charms Giveaway

Wednesday, April 21, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Today's lovely artist for the Look Mom - It's Handmade event is Nature's Charms. The beautiful artwork created by Amanda is delicately brought to life on fabulous bookmarks, and prints. Amanda is a very talented artist.

Her profile:
I'm a self-taught artist who tried a bit of art school and decided it wasn't to my liking. I wanted to do my own thing! My first love is painting scenes from nature, but I also love working with my hands to create little treasures.

I felt calm while looking at Nature's Charms designs. She likes to use watercolor, acrylic as well as pen and ink. I could get lost in one of my favorite prints of hers, Hide n' Seek Original Watercolor Painting. It features lovely fall colors with a cat looking for a mouse in the pumpkin patch. I love the details and the fun of the painting. Amanda's motto is "Beauty can be found in the simplest things". She captures it in her work. I love her bookmarks. She was so kind so send me a bookmark to sample her artwork. My design is a Morning Lily in lovely yellows painted just for me. I am honored. It is too pretty to be slapped in a book.

Nature's Charms has a nice assortment of bookmarks all hand painted by Amanda. She will also make custom artwork bookmarks at a very reasonable price for a one of a kind treasure. Contact Nature's Charms through Etsy for more information on custom designs.

Here is your chance to win! Nature's Charms is providing to one lucky reader - two handpainted book marks. Arum Dusk and Arum Dawn. They are lovely. Thank you Nature's Charms.

    I really liked "The Nonconformist" :)

    Additionally, Amanda submitted a great piece of artwork to my Literary Journal, so I have some familiarity with her work. She's an excellent artist, and really fun to work with on a project like mine. Kudos for featuring her!
