Another instalment of “We Asked The Artists” has been posted on the Stampington & co Blog, Somerset Place.
Not only was it an honour to be part of this it was also interesting to ponder upon the answers for each individual question posed to me (and obviously the others). For my response to this particular question I knew that I had to give a nod to all of the lovely friends of my Blog, who have been incredibly loyal to me. In recent times my style has taken a slightly different direction as I ink up stamps which I might have otherwise overlooked and also dabbling with colour. So many of you could have easily abandoned me at this time but no, you continue to be there as a wonderful source of support and encouragement. It was actually so many of you who allowed me to take that step. Back when I was on the DT for Gecko Galz and the commitments that entailed, I created this canvas, HERE. To be honest, at the time I did not care for the result, it was more a matter of being relieved that I had created a project in time for the deadline. The feedback I received bowled me over, I was completely shocked and it stopped me in my tracks. It was almost as though your words gave me permission to step outwith my comfort zone. I can say that you gave me a gift, without you realising it. I will always be a vintage, shabby style of girl at heart but it has been freeing to simply find the unadulterated fun of playing once again.
The image they have shown beside my response features Oxford Impressions stamp, The Reader, from the Soul of the Rose set (pen stamp also Oxford Impressions) available from Oxford Impressions and That’s Crafty. It features in this original post from when it was published in Somerset Studio Gallery.
Thank You for your visit to this post. If you want to read my response to Somerset Place’s question then you can read it HERE along with the responses from artists such as Renee Zarate, Septh Apter, Sandra Evertson and many more.
Oh, by the way. The canvas created for Gecko Galz which I didn’t really like, I sort of viewed it differently after it was published in Somerset Studio Gallery!!!
