This sounds fasinating and i know if you like it it has to be good.I am very curious about this art. Count me in,
This sounds very cool, will have to check out her book!

How could I resist? And I am in the process of finally getting my work room all organized to finally work on some art.
I would love to win Lesley's book, I did a class with her a few years ago when she was in Australia - I just loved what she did with Lutrador then, I am sure she has many more things to do with it now.
I would love to get a peek at this book! Thanks for the opportunity!
Wow, I love the synchronicity of this - signed up for another creative class (your class with SIStv) last weekend turned the creative faucet back on!) and on the list was Lutradur, which I'd never heard of before. Just ordered some from Joggles, and now it's come up again.
Thanks for helping wake me up again, Claudine!
Don't enter me in the drawing (I'm with the publisher) - but I just wanted to thank you for doing a give-away! Let me know if you need anything - and good luck to everyone!! This is indeed a fabulous book - it's one of my personal faves (and I'm not just saying that because I'm paid to!) :-)
I can't wait to see the book. Too bad only one of us can win.
What a fabulous looking book. I would love to be entered, thank you! :) your new products and am especially a fan of the gel medium. So creamy and smells good, too. This book looks like fun and I'd love to pull out some fabric to work on. I still have some of Heather Bailey's fabric from the Inspired Event last year. Glad to have a chance for this give away. Mac
Sounds like a great book! Thanks for the giveaway!

What a great giveaway!
Hi Claudine - the Lutradur is amazing material to work with and I almost have my Lutradur "book" done that I started at the workshop on Sat. The amazing thing with the material is that I keep forgetting it is material - interfacing material. It is wonderous to work with. Thanks to both you and Lesley for Saturday at Angela's. Your paints are amazing on the material! Marlynn
I am just starting to move into fabric from paper. This would be a great guide. Stephanie
This looks like a great read. Would love to be your winner this week. ~~ Mary Lib
YAY! Sign me up!! I have seen so many cool projects using this material, but not being much of a seamstress I have been a little apprehensive to try. Maybe I need this book to give me an added push to try this cool product.
I scrapbook with paper. I need to start using fabric into my craft projects.
Wow - how cool.

What a great sounding book. Maybe I could use some of the leftover fabric scraps I always save "just in case..."
how fabulous! thanks for the chance to win it.
oh pick me, pick me!!!!!!
I was excited to stumble upon your blog. I'm glad there are people out there who still illustrate with pen and ink. Sometimes I feel like I've doomed myself since I'll be receiving my undergraduate degree soon and am in love with a media few people still use. I'm also an English major so I was wondering if you could tell me what sorts of things you have written, since I see 'author' in your profile.
Looks like a fun book! PLUS . . . my name is Leslie and my son's name is Reilly . . . so a book by Lesley Riley seems to be a must-have for me! Hee!! Have a great day! Leslie (
Ooo -- thanks for the opportunity, Claudine! You are always so generous!
