Since discovering Annie Sloan's range of decorative paints, I have been crazy about her Chalk Paint™ and the amazing things you can do with it. Recently I was invited to help spread the word that Annie is giving everyone a chance to show off their creative wares using Chalk Paint™, along with a chance to win $100 of Annie Sloan prizes... Yay!
Since developing Chalk Paint™ in 1990, Annie's been all about sharing ideas and inspiration and is now giving you the chance to show off your creative skills. 'Made It My Own with Annie Sloan' is running from now until the end of September and all Annie Sloan fans and lovers are invited to show off their creative wares by sharing via their favourite social media pages and uploading an image to the international hub at
http://mimo.anniesloan.com/ The competition runs from now until the end of September with two draws, August 31st and September 30th and you could be in with the chance to win "pot loads of prizes". To enter, all you have to do is follow these simple steps:
- Take a photo of your Chalk Paint™ masterpiece. Use the 'Frame your master piece frame' by holding it up in front of your finished work and snap your photo. If you don't have the distinctive hand drawn card frame, no problem, you can simply upload your photo to the website and pick your frame, all it takes is a 'click' on the site
- Upload your image to the gallery http://mimo.anniesloan.com/
- Share on any of your social media sites such as Twitter or Instagram, adding the hash tag #MadeItMyOwn
Above: An example
I have been super excited to receive a gift box to be part of Made It my Own, I received 2 small pots of colours, a lovely new brush and two cute pots of clear and dark wax. I began work on my project yesterday and hope to upload it to the site and share it in a post with my readers later in the week.
If you have already completed a Chalk Paint™ project, then head on over and upload your image. Maybe you haven't tried Chalk Paint™ before, well, now is the time and Annie would love to see your masterpiece.
