Doing a HAPPY DANCE!!!

It's always an absolute thrill to have your work chosen for publication in a Stampington magazine and I have 2 in the February/March issue of the Stampers' Sampler!!!!!!!! Both are part of the special surfaces challenge and the first is an ATC concertina book. You can see the cover in the magazine - I used some of my crayon glassine paper to stamp on as my special surface.

Want to see the inside?

This is how the concertina looks opened and I used more crayon glassine on alternate panels. Here are a couple of close-ups:



My second project is a set of 3 collages built on 3in square acrylic blocks that are usually used for stamping with your unmounted stamps. I adhered paper to the back and stamped images onto the front of each block.

On the facing page they even show a photo from the side so you can see the dimension.

I've been smiling all day :-)

No wonder you are smiling Penny! Many congratulations. Your work is always so beautiful. I just wish I could get my hands on a copy of the magazine. I will keep a look out for it on some of the UK sites I visit.

PS I am also working on a very similar ATC book with butterflies and text! Your lovely ATC swap book gave me the idea.
