Somerset Studio Jan/Feb 2008

I was really pleased to find out that the 'Hope' creation I submitted to Somerset Studio has been published this month as part of the 'Green' Artcall (page 104 if you happen to be heading that way lol ;0) ). Really looking forward to the issue as its my first time appearing, but living in the UK usually means a two week difference on receiving publications. booooo lol
Here's the piece I created using all sorts of paints, ep's, rub ons and inks. The image is by Paper Whimsy.

Please click any images to enlarge










Thanks for looking. Happy Holidays.
