What a great surprise awaited me in the mailbox today! I found an issue of the Stampers’ Sampler and when I opened it up expecting to find my ‘Star Spangled Banner’ on one of the pages, I find an article 3 pages long!
I really was taken aback, they did a wonderful job photographing it too. I have the banner hanging on my fireplace mantel for Memorial Day and the Fourth. But that wasn’t all, I skimmed through the rest of the magazine, because that’s what I always do first, and there on another page were two more pieces I had submitted for their Tempting Template call. I submitted two cards made using their template. Inside of these is an altered teabag, with a vintage photo of both Chamomile, and Earl Gray. This was a fun template to design around. Check out the Stampers’ Sampler if you get a chance to. And be sure to look for the next issue as I am very honored to be the featured guest artist. It was a lot of fun to answer the interview questions:-) It is an indescribable feeling to look through these magazines that I have been reading for some time and see my work. And to think, I wouldn’t have dreamed of submitting work without the wonderful support of the online art community.
