On Cloud 9

I submitted a piece of artwork to Somerset Studio (available from Wendy at The Stamp Attic) for the Aubergine challenge.  This was the first time I had submitted artwork to Somerset Studio so as I flicked through the magazine I had little hope of seeing the hanging I submitted. There I am having a leisurely look and all of a sudden I see artwork that looks familiar,  then I see my name …. then the penny drops!Well  a week later and I am still sitting on Cloud 9.

My good friend Doli gave me my first Somerset magazine and since then each issue has captured my imagination. If I were to never submit anymore work to this publication or never published again, it could not take away how delighted I am at the moment. Just goes to show, it is always worth a shot.

    And so you should be, Lynne 🙂 There are lots of aspiring artists out there who’d give their right arm to be published in Somerset Studio but only ‘the few’ achieve it!! HUGE congratulations.
