ART :: Giveaway!


Hello beautiful friends! This has been an amazing month for Kelly Kruse Creative. I’ve received new commissions and the start of my Etsy shop has been strong for the past two weeks! I want to thank each and every one of you who has supported me through your purchases, encouraging words, and for those of you who came out for my very first open studio event!

I especially want to thank my husband and my best friends for the many long conversations, hours, and times spent pouring into this pursuit of picking back up on painting. I love you all.

In the spirit of this gratefulness, I’m doing my first giveaway on Dream Make Repeat! I’ll be giving away a custom 11×15 ink drawing! It will be in the spirit of “morning bars” and “sunset bars” (pictured below). You have the option for me to leave the painting unmatted, or I will send it in a white mat. If you win, you can specify the two base colors (for example: orange and blue) and the metal leaf (silver, gold, or both) and I will make you a custom painting!


Styled Shoot 4-15-60

1. Follow me on Pinterest, pin your favorite painting from my Etsy Shop and leave me a comment ON THIS BLOG stating:
a) the color you’d like
b) matted or unmatted
c) a link to your pin

Winners will be drawn at random.

There are three ways to get extra entries:
1) Pin an extra 3 pins of paintings from the shop! (1 entry per 3 pins) Please post the links to those pins in the comments below and mention that they are your extra entry.
2) Post a photo of your favorite painting from myΒ Etsy Shop on Instagram, follow me and tag me @kellykrusephoto and use the hashtag #kellykrusecreative
3) Like my facebook page, Kelly Kruse Creative, & share a link to your favorite painting from myΒ Etsy Shop on your facebook page, use the hashtag #kellykrusecreative and tag Kelly Kruse Creative in the post.

I will be giving away a 16×20 painting in the same style as “morning bars” (above – you can also pick the colors & metal leaf) to the person who makes the most social media mentions!

Thank you for helping me to spread the word about Kelly Kruse Creative!

I can’t wait to see which paintings you like the best! This giveaway is open until May 15, and the winners will be contacted shortly after.

Good luck!

    Dear Kelly,

    I love every painting you’ve done. Sincerely. Your palette is amazing – teal and gold is my favorite color combo of all time! (I still wear earrings you made me in the same colors, and always get compliments on them. I love saying “my artist friend made these” :)) I think the bars theme is a winner (classic; almost Klimt-like) but also love the florals you’ve recently added to your shop.

    – Claire

    1st entry:
    a) dark, stormy teal; gold leaf (could include silver leaf and/or orange and I sure wouldn’t mind!)
    b) no preference for matted or unmatted – whatever fits the piece, intuitively, to you


  11. scilenceoftheworld

    Extra entry (via Pinterest – I’m just getting started with it so this is a good incentive!):
