I was almost speechless! (almost)
The tears absolutely poured down my face as I opened my
Somerset Apprentice by Stampington!
Even though I knew I had been chosen ahead of time...
truly it is not believable until you open that magazine and see your artwork on the pages!
My"Beautiful Dreamers"are a six page spread!
I just couldn't believe it!
The gang at Stampington&Company did an absolutely beautiful job photographing and sharing my artwork. Truly a gorgeous spread.
and then,if this wasn't enough,I was asked to answer a few questions for the regular article
"We Asked the ARTISTS"
What's your favorite embellishment to use on a project?
and for the regular article "Glossary Spotlight"
they asked me:
What Types of Findings are you drawn to?
and finally they wanted to know:
Please share a humorous/embarrassing story from when you were a beginning artist
As you can probably guess,I am still reeling with excitement and thanking my lucky stars!
Sending out huge thank yous to #Stampington&Company Publications, #SomersetApprentice, and to Gracy Wilkins and Danielle Williams for appreciating my artwork and giving me this fabulous chance to have it shown worldwide through their magazine!
I am beyond blessed!
About seven years ago,my online friend Darlene Campbell and I were discussing my submitting for publishing. Darlene is a much published artist and was constantly encouraging me.
I told her at that time,my dream was to be published in Somerset Apprentice!
Darlene always had faith it would happen for me-thanks my bestest Ohio friend!
and now,I am here to tell you
DREAMS DO COME TRUE!
thank you for your visit
