Dreams of Joy & Truth (Somerset Life)

Stampington & Company’s Somerset Life is quite unique, they call it “authentic and creative living”, with exceptional photography and beautiful articles guaranteed to cover all styles and topics, it makes it such a gentle read.   In 2012 I was published with a Creative Living idea, that one time made me so happy, it was a dream fulfilled of being published in Somerset Life.  I genuinely never expected to be published, it wasn’t a magazine I submitted to and it just seemed a dream too far to expect to submit an idea that would catch their eye.  Little did I know that 2016 would transcend any such dreams.
This particular article in the Summer issue features three pins where torn fabric and a sentiment stamped onto fabric is the feature.
joylynnemtwoThe bezels are quite small so it was a matter of seeking stamps that would fit the dimensions especially as I wanted the floral background fabric to also be seen.
joyonelynnemAs a really quick way to present the pins and a practical way to prevent them from tangling up with each other as they made their way to the Stampington offices, I made use of shipping tags.dreamonelynnemThe pins are easily detached to be pinned onto clothing, etc.dreamtwolynnemThe doming effect can be seen better in this photograph.betruelynnemThe fabric was frayed within an inch of its life before being encapsulated.betruelynnemoneJoy and Dream are PaperArtsy ESN stamps.
Many thanks for your visit today.

    Aw Lynne, these are incredible. Beautiful little darlings which I’d wear constantly.

    Truly fabulous, vintage looking, very wearable works of heart. Love each and every one of them. You have inspired me to perhaps make something similar for myself.

    Dear Lynne, they are so lovely, and beautiful with the fabric ,word, and rhinestones under the domes you created, on the bezels. They could dangle everywhere, from ones cloths to bags, and pillows , -I`m so happy for you, they arrived in Somerset Life . xxx
