Giveaway: Dee Beale Print

Happy Friday! I hope everyone got through their week unscathed (I did not, but more on that later.) This weekend will be a lot less exciting than last weekend...it's back to the grind for me. I am, however, truly excited to introduce this weekend's giveaway to you.

Dee Beale is a UK based print maker and free lance designer who, to say it mildly, is very talented.
Her work has been featured on Design Sponge, Desire to Inspire, and Print and Pattern (amongst others) so you may recognize it. If you're looking for art to spruce up your art wall, or any wall at that, then this is the giveaway for you.
Dee has been kind enough to offer, to one Down and Out Chic reader, a choice of one print from her Etsy shop.
Will you choose the...
Scandinavian Red Hare
Cornflower Birds
Poppies
Shine
Scandinavian Blue Hares
...or another from the shop?
I don't know how you choose between these, I really don't. They're all strongly designed, the colors are gorgeous, and the imagery would work in any space. Dee's blog is filled with sketches, Etsy finds, and the latest about her work. Maybe learning more about the artist will help you choose your perfect print.

So, how do you enter? Pay attention b/c you can enter up to 3 times!
1) Leave a comment here, after checking out the shop, and tell me which print you would choose if you won. (That's 1 entry)
2) This giveaway is open to everyone, but if you're a follower you can enter another comment simply saying you're a follower. (That's 2 entries)
3) Post about this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter and leave a comment saying you did. (That's 3 entries).
**If you don't leave separate comments, I won't enter you more than once...comments that are gibberish or obviously have nothing to do with this giveaway will not be considered.
Eeeek! I'm so excited. Good luck to you, happy weekend, and thanks for reading!
~Christina

I like the poppies and the scandinavian red hare...

Such great prints. Very interesting.

Would be great to win one of these :)

nkp said...

Oh my, what a lovely surprise on a Friday morning! I love the red bunny. I think the color would look amazing against my robin's egg blue-ish basement walls. (but then again, I love the birdies and poppies as well, uh oh!)

Beautifully designed and executed prints. Thanks for the opportunity to take one home, ladies!

nkp said...

And of course, I'm already a follower Christina. Happy weekend!!!

Oh wow, thanks so much for the link to her shop. Her work reminds me so much of the art for one of my favorite films, Watership Down. Absolutely breathtaking.

I just moved into a new house and every last one of these would match in one room or another. I may have to just treat myself!! :)

Ed said...

My husband Ed has bought me the Scandinavian red hare for my birthday, we have had it framed in a vintage 50's frame and although i know what it is i cannot wait to unwrap it at the end of the month. My other favourite in the blue Scandinavian hares which would make a fantastic pair of prints (and i have a pair of frames). Fantastic print and great images.

Ed said...

oh, and of course i will comment on my facebook page. Alys
