Mail Day

What a nice surprise to bring in the mail and notice an envelope from The Rubber Stamper Magazine! I received my artists comp copy of the May Rubber Stamper today, my design can be seen on page 23...here's a closer look:


(all images Lasting Impressions with Panache)




I've been submitting for magazine design calls on a regular basis, it's always a thrill to get a comp copy in the mail, then flipping through it wondering what they've decided to publish. Even though I'm submitting for a call - I've found I need to design for "me". Meaning, not changing "my style" of stamping to conform to a certain design call.

The inspiration for this card came from the TJNL's Gesso Resist Technique - but I "morphed" the technique to suit my needs.

Congrats to all who were published in the May issue of Rubber Stamper!

ETA - Etha asked "So, do you in general submit more than one card for a certain challenge/theme when you send to magazines?"

Yes, generally I do submit more than 1 card for a design call - with hopes that one of them will get picked up. For the above "collage" call - I had actually submitted 2 cards. However, I don't submit the same cards to different magazines - as they are looking for original non published samples. Great question!
