A Tale To Tell



Yes, I have a Tale to Tell.
Some time ago Somerset Studio Magazine had a readers challenge with the topic 'Winter'.  
Living in such a winter part of the world, and enjoying it as I do, I  knew I wanted to submit something. 
I made a little book and mailed it off, not even knowing if it would make it before the deadline.  



But it did, 
and then I got an email asking if I would be interested in writing an article on how I created it. 
And of course I was!

My little book was made with my handmade paper and winter photographs that I have taken.




Yesterday I received my copy of the magazine in the mail.
And WOW!- what a beautiful job they did of displaying my little book.





Three pages of mostly pictures of my little creation. 






And to top that off they even put it on the cover of the magazine!


If you are in a bookstore and see this magazine,
just know that it is for me a dream come true - and one that I wasn't even expecting!

  21. The world has been waiting to meet you Kim! Hello World! Hello Kim! I can hardly wait to get my copy. Congratulations to a well deserving art friend. Thank you for your kind words about my tea cup/saucer. To get the shape I just googled images for lamp shades and traced the shape right on top of the computer screen (with a 6B pencil very very gently) because my printer is not hooked up properly. That gave me the cup shape, and for the saucer I just traced the right size circle from a jar of something or other and cut a small circle out of the very centre of that larger circle. I took the larger circle and sliced through from the center out to the rim and then just overlapped it slightly. That gives the right shape. I glued it and then tucked the smaller circle back into the centre and carefully glued it back in place. Easy peasy. I would imagine how wonderful your cup/saucer would be if you did your tea bag collage style and drawing magic that you do. You could make a magic cup indeed for those winter snow fairies that dance in your woodlands in the eventide. Hugs, N, xo
