This is another catch-up post, for something I had published as far back as Spring, in Stampington & Co’s Somerset Life magazine.. Somerset Life is one of my all time favourite Stampington titles. It is not a stamping magazine, it is an everything magazine. Stamped projects might well appear along with fabric, mixed media, presentation ideas, it truly is a lifestyle magazine, to lead a Somerset Life.
As much as I love this title, it was only recently that I submitted to a Challenge Call, Bookmarks, which I shared HERE. On reading in that particular issue that there was to be a new Challenge Call for Torn Fabric, well I couldn’t resist. I don’t own a sewing machine and I don’t sew but I love fabric. As is often the case with me, the idea came about by pure chance when some fabric happened to be beside some wooden craft spools. To have my bookmarks published was a dream come true, but to have that followed with another article in Somerset Life, let’s just say, I am running out of words to express what it means to me!
I would like to share three pendants that are presented in the article. You will appreciate, I do not want to give instructions as they are printed within the actual article. The trickiest part of all was finding words of a dimension to suit the craft spools. I am lucky to have lots of positive words in stamp form but most of them were too large for the purposes.Each word stamped onto fabric, an absolute favourite of mine when it comes to stamping.The chains were deliberately made simple as I didn’t want anything overly fussy.The stamps are from Darkroom Door (Bliss) and Joy and Dream are from PaperArtsy ESN. Words stamps have to be amongst the most useful stamps we could own.Each pendant was presented in its own fabric roll which again tied in with the challenge theme of torn fabric.With pretty floral fabric bringing contrast to the calico and also acting as a closure.Thank you to Christen Hammons, the Editor-in-Chief, for publishing my pendants and thank you to all of you who continue to be friends of my blog, it is always appreciated.
