Our Spring Contest is over and the winners were announced yesterday! Congrats to all who won and thank you to all who were able to participate. It was an interesting opener to more contests running on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter for our Ampersand online fans. So if you haven’t yet joined us on the social media platforms, come follow us for more information and tidbits throughout the year. I usually share events, workshops and more cool artists through all the platforms. I might even throw in a few new videos this year, so stay tuned.

As far as our contest goes, it was really fun to see what your studios look like and what size panels you’re using and where you put them! Thank you for posting!
For those of you who didn’t read the contest guidelines. . . .just a summary: Contestants entered a photo of their studio with their Ampersand panels to be eligible. One winner was chosen who had the most votes for their photo and the other chosen by Ampersand staff. Three more submissions were chosen to be featured in our blog with their art and process.

Congrats first to Kat Moore for the most votes for her photo. Thanks to all who were able to vote and like their friends submissions.
Also congrats to Elaine Bagwell for her studio shot which has actual Ampersand shelving. So fun!
Both of you ladies will win panels in the surface of your choice. 4 – 12″ x 12″, 3/4″ depth panels. I will be getting in touch with you via email.
Next, our three winners chosen to be featured in our blog are Valerie Allen, Ginger Gehres and Jonathan Webb. I will also get in touch with you via email and we’ll work from there to feature you in our blog over the summer season, or earlier. 😉
Thank you to all who helped make this first contest a success. And thank you for your feedback on Facebook to let us know what you thought. Continue to roll in the comments so we can better tweak these contests towards your interests and art.
Scratchbord™ and the Artist Panel in canvas texture are both on sale at local retailers, as part of our Spring Sale going on through May. Aquabord™ and Pastelbord™ are also on sale during these weeks. Stock up while you can!
