Guest Artist For The Stampers’ Sampler

Hello Everyone
Well this is a post I never would have dreamt I would be sharing with you, the news that I am the Guest Artist in the latest issue of Stampington & co’s The Stampers’ Sampler.  It was made all the more special as this issue is their 20th anniversary issue.
1SAM-1402-The-Stampers-Sampler-Spring-2014-600x600When they made contact in December I re-read that e-mail several times as I was so sure I had misread it!  I cannot thank The Stampers’ Sampler enough for this honour and also for the adorable way my artwork was photographed beside the pretty vintage style teacup.
I was delighted to see that they selected art which credited Crafty Individuals and Oxford Impressions.  Both of those companies mean much to me as they were stamps I fell in love with when I became passionate about stamping, with Crafty Individuals stamps amongst the first I ever bought and then when I realised I could purchase Oxford Impressions stamps in the U.K. (sold at the time by Lin @ LBCrafts) it was the start of another love story for me.   Jean, Malcolm and Suzanne have been supportive long before I was on their teams so in my eyes it seems fitting that their stamps were showcased within this Guest Artist feature.
Normally when I have art published I go on to share photographs of the items but not this time and I have decided not to even share sections of the two pages of interview questions, some relating to my creating and others to my life in general.
Another time I will however share either one or two of the wall hangings which were also published in this issue under the feature title, Distressed Hangings.
In the meantime, many thanks for your visit to this post.

    Seeing this issue with your feature made me grin from ear to ear, Lynne. Stampington has published so many of your gorgeous pieces over the years, and your style is so unique that it’s no wonder at all they featured you. Congratulations!!!
