Giveaway: Artaissance (don't miss this!)

Whew, Happy Friday! I don't know about you but there has been a lot of excitement in the blogging community these past couple of days and I am definitely looking forward to a calmer weekend. What are you up to this weekend? I have a date with the September issue of Vogue. It's been sitting on my coffee table for over a week, sadly unread.

I am stoked (stoked!) to chat with you about this weekend's giveaway from Artissance. I was contacted by an unbelievably nice representative of this company and after taking a gander through the site, I knew it would be perfect.
Birds and Roses by Elena Illku

Here's the deal, Artissance is offering a $300 gift certificate to one (holy cow) lucky Down and Out Chic reader! $300 to choose the perfect print for your home, office, craft room, etc.
Hepplewhite Sofa Acorn/Sky from Biltmore Collection

As the winner, you can choose a print ranging from 6" to 54" on the smallest size and have the "high quality giclee reproduction" printed on your choice of either conservation-quality paper or canvas. Framing is not included. I'm pretty confident that there's something for everyone and every taste here (there are over 3,300 prints).
Birds A by Jonathan Adler

In case you're curious about what gilcee actually is, you can see a pretty neat video all about it here. Not sure what size you would actually order? Here's another helpful video.
So, if you interested in winning a $300 print of your choice, all you have to do is a leave a comment. Visit Artissance and let me know what you think.
{open to U. S. residents only, sorry!}
Winner will be picked next Tuesday night, Sept 1st. Good luck and I hope you have wonderous weekends.

This is a fabulous giveaway! I went to the website and my favorites were the shells in the "Coastal" Section. I also love the sunset prints from the same section. Anything beachy/sunset really appeals to me with the light blues and greens. Thanks!

Artissance is so cool! I love that you can choose custom sizes, and they have a great selection. The option of a giclee on canvas and not just a paper "print" is fantastic!

We're moving and could use some "us" art, so this would be fun to win! Right now most of the art I'm bringing is black and white or pink and most of his are concert posters (framed at least). I'd love to pick something out together! Crossing my fingers and going to browse!

thriftychicaustin said...

I have officially fallen in love with at least seven(if not 15) that I loved and adored. What an awesome site! It's so important to make good art accessible to people and places like art.com are certainly lacking. I love the originality of the pieces and the whole feel of the site! Thanks for letting us in on it!

Abi said...

These are gorgeous pieces of work! Too bad I'm a day late.. Thanks for sharing!
