Number 13...Unlucky for some...



This year I began holding workshop mornings locally here in Sussex and on doing so have met such a wonderful group of stampers.
One of the ladies that attends, Charry Wijers-Buschkens, (very talented...and originally from The Netherlands where I'm sure they are all born holding a rubber stamp!) said to me a little while ago would I mind if one of the pieces she made at the workshop appeared in ART SPECIALLY magazine (well its more like a book really compared to your average magazine, feels beautiful to hold and read...well...I say read,lol, its in Dutch, but who needs words when there is such gorgeous artwork!!!!).

Would I mind??!! Of course not, I'd be elated! I only ran the workshop - Charry made the beautiful box.

And so yesterday (cut a long story short, can you tell I'm excited), this arrived...

Issue 13 of 'ART SPECIALLY ' magazine.



There it is!! On the cover!!! Charry's beautiful box she made at the Textures class using Art Journey and Stampotique stamps. Stamps used are Art Journey Girl and Tree and Seed Heads
. The Stampotique images are from my range there (Jo Capper-Sandon)and are Daisy Daisy, Small Butterfly (used on metal as 3D butterflies aswell as on the wooden surface), the lower part of the quote World All Her Own and French Text,
Charry doesn't have a blog (so I wanted to shout out for her on here), but I'm sure you'd agree with me in thinking I wish she would!!



Here she is busily working at one of the classes I took. Keep an eye out for her too at any shows you may be attending this month. Yesterday Charry was demoing in Belfast, and later this month is(I think) in Newcastle, Glasgow and Birmingham!!

There are lots of names I recognise from visiting blogs published in this issue. Great seeing all the work in there. The magazine is available from Art Journey as well as many other stores.

It looks really pretty, Jo. I know what you mean about the Dutch - they all seem to be naturally brilliant, don't they? And I agree about Art Specially - it's a beautifully edited mag, as are the books, with fab art from cover to cover. Just wish I could understand it! Well done you and glad your workshops are going well, making new friends at the same time x

Sorry for you, Jo, but I was searching for Charry's blog!
And now, looking at all your beautiful work, I found out that she has no blog!!!! Such a shame! But the good thing is, that I visited your blog and simply love what you are making.
So I will visit your blog more often. Love Gery
