A brief interlude to show you my latest articles in the current issues of Somerset Life and Memories.
In Life, you can find some ideas to make your own clay tags. From plain, French-inspired stamped ones...
... to more elaborate with a mixed- media feel, inspired by summer and the Ocean.
A few additional shots by me...
I "stamped" shells, starfish, sea urchins into clay, and then added words, beads, natural coral and tiny shells to match the sea theme. I sewed burlap bags to go with them, for a stylish gift presentation.
Much to my surprise, I found another feature on the last page by the Editor-in-Chief herself.
Stuffed tartan hearts I had made for the staff at Stampington made it to the glossy pages, making me smile. Thanks a bunch, Christen!
This article in Somerset Memories has now become one of my favorites so far. It speaks of personal challenges but above all, of love...
Many thanks, Jana!
And thanks so much to those of you who took the time to write me about these articles, you made my day!
