April 2013 Giveaway - Simon from Wood Tattoos

19/04/2013 - Matt Chatterley

Fancy winning a fantastic personalised pyrography design made for you by Simon Easton, author of “Woodburning with Style” and “Learn to BURN”?

Wood Tattoos Frame Hello again folks - I'm back this month as Rosa has been a bit busy (I wonder why..?), which is also why we're slightly later than usual posting the giveaway. Howver, it's more than made up for by the fantastic prize on offer. I don't know about you, but we've finally started to feel like spring has actually sprung - with some sunshine and nicer weather!

But before you get too excited making your plans for the summer, remember - we always need more giveaway sponsors, so if you'd like to take part, please get in touch to put your name on the list!

This month's sponsor is the very talented Si from Wood Tattoos, who has recently been featured by us, both in a press release and a guest blog, because he's now the proud author of two published books on pyrography! As a bit of a frustrated author, I'm both jealous and encouraged by his story - which you can read on our blog, here.

The rules remain as ever: to enter, visit our sponsor's link(s) (at the end of the post) and post a comment here, telling us which of their makes you like the most. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be chosen at random. The giveaway will close at midnight (GMT) on Friday 26th April 2013.

It's over to Si now to tell you more about himself and the prize!

Wood Tattoos Frame “I've been making items using the art of pyrography under the banner of ‘Wood Tattoos' since 2007. As I built my business, increasing my online presence and attending more craft fairs, I was also fortunate enough to attract the attention of the team at Fox Chapel Publishing which has led to me writing two books on the art of pyrography.”

“My designs feature bold patterns, subtle texture and draw from a range of alternative sources of inspiration, which hopefully gives them a unique and identifiable ‘Wood Tattoos' feel. I enjoy taking on commissions for customers so that I can create something individually tailored to their own requirements. By working closely with people in this way, I can hopefully make something which cannot be purchased off the shop shelf and will be treasured for many years to come.”

Wood Tattoos Frame “Due to this, my giveaway prize will be a unique photo frame commission. I will contact the winner to discuss their requirements for a personalised 7x5 inch wooden frame. I'll make it for your own use, or for you to use as a gift for a loved one or special occasion. We'll agree the layout together before I burn it and send it to you. Take a look at some of the other photo frames to be found on my Facebook and Flickr pages to give you an idea of what we can achieve together!”

“If you would like to keep up to date with my newest designs, please don't forget to like my Facebook page or visit my Flickr photostream! And don't forget… if you aren't successful in the competition, I can always be contacted at info@woodtattoos.com if you want to discuss an order.”

Go against the grain, feel the burn and visit Wood Tattoos now!

These are beautifully made. I love having things like this at home. My husband made me a box with a pyrography image on and he filled it with money he'd been saving all year so I could buy myself a special piece of jewellery at xmas.
