Le Cirque (Published in Somerset Studio)

Hello Everyone
I cannot tell you how excited I was when Renee (Bolton House) shared the news that I was published in Somerset Studio.  My complimentary copy obviously had taken the scenic route to my home but finally it arrived this week.  It is such an honour to be published in any of the Stampington publications but I would say that Somerset Studio possibly has the edge in being the extra special one.
lecirquelynnemoncrieff1I nearly didn’t submit this piece as it is quite fragile but at the last minute I took the leap of faith that it would arrive in one piece.
detailI had made it some time ago but tweaked it somewhat by making it a bit more distressed and also emphasising certain aspects such as the edges and stars with vintage glass glitter and other touches of extra colour. detail2The stamp set is Oxford Impressions’ Vintage Circus which is available direct from Austen Gallery or in the U.K. from That’s Crafty.
Many thanks for your visit to this post. Apologies for not having visited you, I am so far behind with my visits this past week.

    Your attention and talent for details is always delightful…
    and to think how far it traveled too!
    I know what you mean about feeling behind…
    for some reason I am finding it extra challenging to manage my time lately and spring hasn’t even sprung yet which is always a bit of a wonderful distraction too 😉
    Congratulations once again…Somerset Magazine is wonderful and so are you ♥
