Time for a FABULOUS giveaway ($250 value)

…………..Giveaway Closed…………..
I can hardly even wait to show you the most darling, family run business.
One that will impress the socks right off of you.
Gregg and Megan of the creative Modern Bird Studios, are a family team, who have created Modern Bird Studios as a way to create original pieces art for your home, office, etc.  Gregg is the artist behind their home grown business and offers a unique urban twist to each piece of art, using paint to turn a cherished memory of yours into a lovely masterpiece.
And I happen to know first hand, how perfectly composed a piece of work is from Modern Bird Studios.  
I sent an image over to Modern Bird Studios, chose the colors and size that I wanted, they sent me a proof to be certain that I’d like it, then a week or so later…….this arrived in the mail.

And the fact that my own little ones are in a painted piece of art up on our shelf, makes it all the more perfect.
It was such a simple process on my end.  And I can’t say enough about how perfect the communication was.  They even sent an image, letting me know the piece was ready to be shipped.  
And then I gave my okay.  Nice touch.

 Such a nice new focal point for us to look at.  And those sweet little monkeys of mine, giggling and loving on each other.  Makes my heart swell.
And it really is paint.  Every part of it perfectly in place.
How it works, is that Modern Bird Studios uses technology and traditional painting to place an image of your choice onto a sturdy piece of oak wood composite that has no chance of warping (unlike canvas).  They offer a variety of sizes, making your piece of art perfect for any spot in any room.
They offer two tone images:
3 tone images:
4 tone images:
And 5 tone images:
Do you see how adding layers and color shades adds more depth to the picture.  It just depends on your preference but I love the option to have more or less.  Such a great visual appeal.

Modern Bird Studios also creates a unique acrylic mounted to wood pieces.  They are multi-dimensional pieces that are painted on both the wood and acrylic piece on the front.

Pretty amazing how that looks from all angles.  
Check out other images and samples in their portfolio here.
But no matter what you choose, you will be sure to enjoy your new piece of art.  And because it’s one-of-a-kind, it will most likely will speak right to you.
Such a lovely way to add some tasteful art, right to your home.

And yes, Modern Bird Studios is offering a great giveaway to one of you readers 
here at Make It and Love It.  
They are offering a $250 gift certificate to one of you.  
Good towards anything on their site.  
Are you just dreaming of the perfect piece of art for your home?  
Or maybe considering gifting it during the upcoming holidays?  
Or maybe for the grandparents mantel?
And in case you don’t win, Modern Bird Studios is offering a 15% discount on all orders from now until  October 14th.  Be sure to type in MAKEIT at checkout.
