Stampers' Sampler Guest Artist
Yesssssssssssssssssssss!!!!!!!!!! Its my name on the front cover!!!!! Even more suprisingly my name fits onto the front cover!! lol
I can't believe it's me! I made Guest Artist in the latest issue of Stamper's Sampler (Dec/Jan 09). I haven't felt this elated about my work since first getting a card published in a readers gallery competition when I first started out.
Christen Olivarez was very complimentary in her Editor's Letter about me and also in the introduction to the article itself, which consists of four pages of artwork and a page of interview.
Have I said I'm excited!!!!!!!
Here are one or two pieces from the article, which were created almost a year ago now, so my overall style has changed a little. I hope you enoy it if you manage to get hold of a copy.
Stampington did a superb job with the photography and layout, especially with the two I've shown that I took myself (above). I found them very tricky to capture with all their elements with my little camera, but if you get the magazine you'll get to see better shots.
Thankyou very much indeed.
