    I’ll share this giveaway on Facebook………I did the Creative Girl course and totally loved it. Danielle is a great teacher and a pleasure to learn from. I’d love to have her book on hand to inspire me further.

  18. Teresa in California

    Please DO NOT put my name in for the drawing for the book. My own copy came in the mail two days ago. I have already purchased the book and I am ‘over the moon’ in love with Danielle’s book! It is so amazing! Her ‘girls’ which she paints are adorable and whimsical. Her watercolor techniques are to die for. Congratulations for such a wonderfully, inspiring, instructional book. I am doing a post on my blog about her book and also two other mixed media artists whom I just recently purchased their books too. Cheers to those who are vying for a chance for Danielle’s book!

    Watercolors are SO fabulous and she’s an amazing artist. Congratulations on being a fine teacher as well, Danielle. Every time I see someone who is encouraging and sharing their talent, I want to shake my finger in my elementary school “art” teachers face and say, “See, there are KIND people who teach art.” She told me, “I don’t know why you even try, you have absolutely no talent. Yes, it still hurts and I’m an old woman.
