Oh how I dream of opening the pages of Somerset Studio
(or any of the Stampington magazines)
and seeing my stuff.
I have had a long time love affair with this magazine,
it's been going on for years,
since 2003 when I bought my first copy.
(and yes, my husband knows...)
I am sending in some items to the publishers in the hope of getting published.
I've even decided to send off my Vision Journal once its completed.
Better get on with it then...
was the page for getting published...
I made myself some collage papers from old issues of the magazine and I used this as a background over the double spread.
I figured it might make the INTENTION stronger.
(and it looked pretty)
I cut up an image of one of my pieces for the face,
I even made a mini copy of Somerset Studio with me as the featured artist.
I worked into the background quite a lot, with different media,
mainly acrylic paints and crayons.
you have to add prompts/quotes for exactly what you want to happen.
This is the top left corner and most of the page.
The right hand side.
This is the spread over the two pages.
(I realise that the time is also right for me to perhaps get a better camera)
So that's two spreads done,
a few more still to go. I'm so glad i made the journal about this...
it feels the right thing to do.
I think the next one will be
about keeping fit
(ok, moving a little more)
P.S. I'm donating some of my Art to Charity Wings and it will be auctioned off at CHA at the end of January, so get down there and grab yourself some Art Eye Candy.
