Somerset Apprentice Giveaway Celebration!


I am privileged to have the creation of my mixed media collage piece, “Deep Roots” as one of the featured articles in the current issue of Somerset Apprentice Magazine. It is pretty fun to see it in print, especially in such a lovely, high quality magazine!  I love all of the Stampington Company magazines, and this marks my 20th appearance in one of their many publications!

To help me celebrate, Somerset Apprentice has graciously offered a free issue to the winner of a drawing right here on my blog! All you need to do is leave a comment, and you will be automatically entered!  The winner will be randomly drawn from the pool, and notified via a reply comment.  You will email me your address, which I will pass on to Somerset Apprentice, and they will send you a complimentary issue ($14.99 value).  How fun is that?!

Besides some other great feature articles, like this one by Stephanie Ackerman on making a cute little painted pouch…


…there are segments called “from the pros” like this one about Tara Ross and her adorable painted fabric dolls.

In the back are also some refreshers on basic techniques, like how to use Citra Solv to alter National Geographic pages, like I did for my Deep Roots piece, or how to stain papers with walnut crystals.


So many great how to articles packed into these magazines, and loads of detailed photos.  I love having these magazines in my library to go back to again and again whenever I need a little inspiration or instruction.

So, be sure and leave your comment and watch for the winner to be announced on April 6!

Good luck!

    What excitement for you Kayann! I’ve learned to expect great, creative, and inspiring artwork and techniques to flow from your most expansive repertoire. Now, the real fun is watching for what’s next for my special Artsy Soul Sister. Kudos, girl!

    Congratulations, Kayann, on being published again. I love mixed media artwork, and I love all of the inspiration that flows from the pieces in Stampington magazines. I like how you incorporated the vintage buttons into your piece. They remind me of the many buttons I have inherited from loved ones past.

    • Correction: The buttons were on the cover piece. Your’s is the “Deep Roots” which I also love. lol The layers in the soil overlaid with the typographical roots have a wonderful textural aspect to them and beautiful conceptual meaning.
